Quick Question

Quick Question: Is there a conversion rate from lingots to gems on the new version of Duolingo? For example if a friend of mine has a phone with, say, 1500 gems, and I gave him a thousand lingots from my old system, will he get a 1000 gems or less? Or will he even get anything?

Assuming things haven't changed in the last few months, he will get 1000 lingots on the website but no gems. The conversion is only done when you are first introduced to gems. After that you are left with two independent economies.


Ok, what if he buys a Streak Freeze w/lingots. Does it transfer to the other economy (Does it still work?) Thanks a ton for aswering, btw.
