Genshin Impact gets into controversy by giving away in-game currency to streamers

Developer miHoYo, the Chinese company behind Genshin Impact, has once again sparked controversy on networks as it was discovered that several people streaming the game were receiving free gacha coins, and in-game messages were warning them explicitly not to tell anyone about the matter. So far, there have been two streamers showing evidence of these messages: Enviosity and Xlice.

Some suspect that the company is purposely sending this free coin (Primogemas) to streamers to encourage them to keep streaming the game, indirectly giving Genshin Impact free publicity. However, critics have pointed out that this free coin could actually be a benefit to those who enlist in the video game's "Content Creation Program."

On the other hand, the free-to-play game developed and distributed by miHoYo was released for iOS and Android devices, as well as for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows globally on September 28. A release on the Nintendo Switch console is scheduled, but a release date has yet to be confirmed.
