What is a lingot? Edit
A lingot [ling-guht] is the Duolingo virtual currency. The more you learn on Duolingo, the more lingots you'll receive and be able to use in the store! They can be earned through:
- Leveling up Earn 1 lingot (multiplied by level reached)
- Finishing a skill Earn 2 lingots for finishing a new skill
- 10 day streaks Earn 1 lingot for every 10 days on a streak (1 for 10, 2 for 20, etc)
- Inviting friends Invite a friend to Duolingo and, if your friend accepts, you both will receive 1 lingot
- Uploading documents Upload a document to Immersion, and receive 1 lingot every time someone up votes your document
- Note: Lingots are not awarded when you use a tree shortcut to level up or finish a skill.
