The first time I found Twitch, I thought, this is ridiculous, why would anyone watch someone ELSE play video games? That quickly flipped to excitement & a new addiction. Live streaming! Never before had I experienced such interactivity on both sides of the camera.
Twitch chat is the heart of every live stream and with the advent of chat bots I got an idea, why not use Twitch chat as a medium of transferring points of value between users? Some points bots already existed, but they didn't carry any real value and simply accrued points the viewer could only look at to show their loyalty. What if you could send points freely, from one user to another, from viewer to broadcaster and vice versa, treating the points as real cash instead of one way points. And what if those points had some actual real world value?
My search deepened, I came across a new digital money called Bitcoin, which opened up a whole new world of possibilities, then dove into "altcoins" and in February 2014, I found Trollcoin.
By that time, trolling was already rampant on Twitch, the choice was easy. I took over development of the Trollcoin blockchain project and now had to figure out a way to get it onto Twitch.
I’m still not sure why BitOBytes agreed to begin work developing my crypto powered chat bot. But 4 years, thousands of hours of work, an incalculable amount of Andy Capp's Hot Fries and a beautiful friendship later he had created not just what I dreamt up back in 2014, but an entire digital Trollcoin based financial ecosystem built around Twitch, Twitter & this store you are visiting.
So, what is the Troll Store?
