What to do with Lingots?

So I have been doing Duolingo for a while, although I haven't been active much lately. I used to love the idea of the virtual currency of the lingots, but now I have 797 and have nothing to do with them. I can buy streak freezes and double or nothings, but that's about it.

Is there anything more I can do with lingots other than give them away? If not, maybe the admins can add cool stuff to buy in the shop. Like stickers or pfps or something.

Give them all to the lingot beggars, the guys who post "Give me lingots" so they can post the same post "What to do with lingots?"

Please don't ask this question.

Duolingo has already destroyed the android duolingo app by forcing us to pay 5 lingots for skipping levels because people were whining that lingots are useless. I do not want them to do the same thing on the duolingo website. I want to have the freedom to not waste countless hours just on getting 5 stars per level.

So, please. Stop complaining. Because Duolingo usually makes things worse when people start complaining.

I'm stockpiling mine in the hope of a bitcoin crash. I have a dream that some day I will be a Lingot Millionaire. You could bring them down to your local "Lingot Exchange" and use them to buy some really cool goodies. I have already exchanged some of mine for a brand new ride on lawnmower.

Hi!

Sometimes Duolinguists make competitions where prices are lingots: for example, I'm running a competition where someone who gets more XP than me during May will get 20 lingots. Some time ago I participated in a competition where we were given a riddle to solve and the price was 200 lingots. Now I participate in a Spanish competition, where we write short texts in Spanish and the prices for the three winners are 20, 10 and 5 lingots. Why don't you invent such a competition? It will be a good way to spend your lingots.

I take it you would be insulted if I gave you a lingot?

XD no I wouldn't be, I guess I'll just stockpile them until Duolingo gives us more to do with them.

I perfer to work on my mac and if I don't get the first spoken phase right, I would like to spend a lingot to retake it. Right now it's one shot and you are wrong. My phone and ipad give the option to respeak.

Totally agree! Asked for the same thing a couple days ago and people just downvoted my post? Very strange...

Hmm i guess I just asked at the right time. This is basically my first time on the community! I had no idea this was even here.

My question is, why did someone downvote my post just now? There's actually no reason.

No, there's no reason. Don't pay atention to it.

You can use lingots to pay for tests to skip lessons. 5 lingots per test.
