Better use of sparks
I love the whole concept of sparks earning as we watch and being able to use them to interact with streams, but it would be great to be able to utilise them on more things.
Maybe have the ability to convert sparks into things such as a 3 month mixer pro code, free sub of channel or like a 5% code off an order from the mixer store would be a great idea to reward those of us who spend hundreds of hours watching streams over Mixer.
many of us have 500,000+ sparks and apart from hitting an odd expensive button it would be great to use them more and get rewarded for doing things we love doing!
Season 2 shipped and it out the door!
Any progress on the below comments of valueing the spark as a form of currency ,above something that has no value offline should be an advantage to Mixer (microsoft's answer to twitch
So there is some real value there for more streamers to help Mixer achieve market share dominance in the ongoing battle of ad revenue etc
Instead of using Sparks the way they are, instead we could use them as money or type of currency. Example, to donate them to streamers, like twitch bits.

i thought of that idea in a similar way as well: adding two different types of sparks one for your viewing steamers and one for you spending to get discount codes or mixer/mixer/gaming merchandise.
ie..... Lets say you have 400,000 Viewer sparks (name for when people view your stream and use their sparks for you) and 360,000 Viewing sparks (sparks you earned for watching a streamer). use the Viewing sparks to pay the streamer similar to donations. and buying lets say 30% off a mixer hat with the Viewer sparks.
if this comes into affect they also need to add a certain limit for streamers can make on each button. or add a cap limit to add on all buttons in total (100,000 sparks total value adding to 1-?# buttons)
That's not a bad Idea! I LOVE it!
If this was implemented and we had more ways to use sparks, I also think it would be neat to be able to buy sparks - this could be used to not only support Mixer, but it could support the caster too (for example, if you bought sparks in a specific channel, then that channel gets the monetary support, and yet you'd still be able to use the sparks in any channel).
