How Much Is A TikTok Universe Worth In 2023?

If you’re looking to make some serious money off of your social media activity, TikTok boasts one of the most diverse sets of opportunities available.

The “TikTok Gifts” feature is one of the most well-known ways for users to make money on the platform by sending virtual gifts to one another and then exchanging those gifts for cash.

I’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions concerning the value of TikTok gifts, including the “Universe Gift Value,” and I’ll be answering them below.

TikTok Universe Gift Worth

The TikTok Universe gift has a staggering value of 34,999 coins, which is equivalent to $500 — making it the most expensive gift that can be purchased on the platform!

So, what exactly is a TikTok gift? Well, TikTok’s approach has always been unconventional; while other social media platforms provide “likes” and “comments” as ways for people to show their appreciation for outstanding content creators, TikTok gives users the choice to send presents instead and make them feel extra special.

Anyone who uses TikTok has the option of purchasing in-app virtual gifts to send to their favorite TikTok stars as a token of their affection, admiration, and encouragement. The value of these gifts is not purely fictitious. A TikTok user’s gifts are turned into diamonds, which can be redeemed for real money through Paytm and other services.

Now comes the inevitable follow-up question: “What makes the Universe Gift so exceptional, anyway?”

When a user sends the Universe gift to a creator on the platform while they are doing a TikTok live stream, a visual extravaganza emerges on the screen. Given how expensive the present is, having someone send it makes it extra special and indicates how well-liked the creator is on the site.

For many content creators looking to achieve recognition, partnering with a branding agency has the potential to expand their online presence and increase their visibility on platforms like TikTok. 

How Much Do Other Gifts On TikTok Cost

The variety of TikTok-themed gifts is incredible. There are at least 100 different TikTok gifts to pick from, ranging in price from as little as $0.012 (or 5 virtual TikTok coins) to as much as $500 (or 35,000 virtual TikTok coins).

Most Expensive Gifts

What if you really liked someone’s platform content but didn’t think a simple like or comment adequately communicated your feelings? No need to fret, though; TikTok has done some serious thinking and comes up with a special feature that allows you to send your favorite creators on the platform stunning and expensive TikTok gifts.

TikTok provides users with a fantastic range of gift options so they never run out of choices or get bored sending the same gift to everyone!

There are currently over 100 gifts available on the platform, covering a wide range of pricing points, making gift-giving much simpler and more accessible.

Moving on to the costliest gifts available on the platforms:

  1. TikTok Universe — 34999 coins
  2. Lion — 29999 coins.
  3. Rocket — 20000 coins.
  4. Planet — 15000 coins.
  5. Interstellar  — 10000 coins.

The more money you’re willing to invest in the creators’ gifts, the more they can make real money out of this.  This works on a rather straightforward framework:

Step 1 — You send them the gift

Step 2 — The TikTok gift points are turned into TikTok diamonds and stashed in their wallet.

Step 3 — They trade in the gems for hard currency via Paytm or another service.

^ Each TikTok diamond costs 5 cents, or $0.05, therefore a creator’s collection of 1000 diamonds is worth $50.

The drawback is that 50% of these earnings are taken out by TikTok as a commission. As a result, a TikTok influencer can possibly earn $25 for every 1000 diamonds after deducting TikTok’s $25 commission.

TikTok consistently provides its creators with numerous options for monetizing their accounts and maximizing the potential of the site, showcasing how much it values its users.

In this blog, I have already covered one such popular method: receiving presents on the platform and then swapping them for real money.

However, there are conditions that must be met before a user can receive or send gifts on the platform:

Criteria for receiving gift from your followers and other users:

  1. You must be part of the Creator Next program (Creator Fund)
  2. Video Gifts must be available in your location (this feature is currently not available everywhere)
  3. You must be at least 18 years or older (or 19 in South Korea and 20 in Japan) to do a TikTok live video stream on that platform
  4. You need at least 100,000 followers (in case of Video Gifts) and need at 1,000 followers (in case of TikTok Live Gifts)
  5. Your TikTok account must at least be 30 days old and must have published at least 1 public video in the last 30 days.
  6. In the case of Business Accounts, they aren’t eligible to participate.
  7. Duet and Stitch videos, brand partnership content, Ads, sponsored content, or promoted posts cannot be rewarded with Gifts.

This is how the criteria for sending a gift looks like:

You should at least 18 years old to send a gift to a TikTok video or during a TikTok live stream on TikTok (or 19 in South Korea and 20 in Japan).
