Tips On Buying And Recharging TikTok Coins

TikTok is a popular social media app. It churns out new trends, challenges, and snappy content. The platform lets users share short videos showcasing cooking hacks, DIY projects, silly meme compilations, and small business marketing. It’s easy to get sucked into it as you scroll through content on your favorite  camera phone.

The app has a livestreaming feature called TikTok LIVE where content creators with over 1,000 followers chat with their fans in real time. Viewers can send gifts to creators, but there’s a catch. You need TikTok Coins to purchase the gifts. Here’s how to buy TikTok Coins so that you can thank them for your dopamine rush.

What are TikTok Coins?

TikTok Coins are a virtual currency stored in your app’s Wallet. You can use them to access various features on the platform. According to the company’s terms and condition, only users aged 18 or above can buy Coins. Their monetary value depends on the region of purchase. As of this writing, 350 Coins cost $3.70 when you get them from TikTok’s website.

Fans can use Coins to send gifts during livestreams, shown as specific emoticons at the bottom of the screen. When you send a gift on TikTok LIVE, a notification pops up for everyone in the stream. Sometimes, the creator might give you a shoutout.

TikTok converts gifts into virtual credits called Diamonds. The number of credits depends on the creator’s popularity in livestreams. They can exchange them for real-world money.

How to buy TikTok Coins
