What is the point of Lingots as there is very little you can do with them?

    Once you have too many and ran out of things to buy you can use them a gratification tokens for good threads and good comments.

    Have a lingot. :). Lingots for everyone.

    Yeah, first week or so they're kind of fun, but a couple weeks in and you've got more than there are things to spend them on.

      I would give you a lingot too... but wouldn't that count as a return?

      :) Yes, it would... no give backs!

      or you could just pile them up and look at them growing, along with the streak ;) your secret little vault filled in by using your head

      Shame they don't have a physical form so you can swim in the lingots like Scrooge McDuck in his gold coins.

        yes that would be nice! you could email duolingo and tell them to ship the lingots you earned to you, and then swim in them : )

        Oh my gosh! Yes!!! I wonder what they would feel like. Let alone, taste like. They look like they might taste like cherry Popsicles.

        You can buy a streak freeze, and buy cool clothes for Duo. And you can give them away, trade them with your friends...

        I use mine for the streak freeze and to send as endorsement and encouragement to good comments.

        I also think the concept of gamification is somehow broken/unfinished in Duolingo. It is strange there is no way to spend more than 200-300 lingots if they encourage us to see adds to get more of them.

        How do you buy clothes for Duo?

          Only on the app... the Android at least.

          I will give the lingots everyone who come in my German club - code: T2QCVM
