Xp Amounts

I have been noticing that when Duolingo shows how much XP someone has, whether it is on clubs or weekly leaderboard, that there are some odd numbers. How can somebody have 69, or 43 ingots? I thought you could only get 10 per lesson, or 5 from bots. Could someone please explain it to me? Thanks in advance for the help, I really appreciate it! :)

If you have purchased a Timed Practice, you earn an XP per correct answer. As you provide correct answers, you earn additional time. So, you can earn from one XP to a maximum of 20 XP on Timed Practice (occasionally, but rarely, you get 21 questions and earn 21 XPs).

Using timed practice you get 1 point per correct answer.

on mobile devices (I know about Android, not sure if it's in iOS too) you get bonus points from 1 to 5 for each lesson depending on the streak of correct answers you got.

In addition, people have the option to gift a lingot if you comment on a post and they like your comment. It's almost used as a little thank you gift.
