What do do with lingots?

What should I do with my ligots? I have 213 of them. There is nothing to buy in the store. Any suggestions?

This is a common problem and has been highlighted by many in the forums before. No doubt Duolingo will in the future make some changes, as they have been changing and improving other areas.

Once everything that can be purchased has been purchased from the store, the only way to use lingots is to donate them to others if you like their discussions or comments. This is a bit like upvoting - letting the person know you really value or appreciate what they said.

Lingots can also be used as prizes in XP competitions. Of course, those who receive lingots through competition or donation probably have the same problem as those who donated the lingots in the first place.

Basically, as things stand, lingots are a bit like a statistic. They measure how far you've got with Duolingo or how diligent you are in practicing. Until improvements are made, you basically just have to save your lingots. One day there may be an opportunity to spend them on something good and expensive, and then lingots will come in handy.

I agree, any ways to be nice ('cause I hope I am nice) I will give no ingots to you, unless you want or need them. I will also follow you to stay in contact.

By the way I will give if needed or wanted, even though I do only have 22 of them.
