Homecoming Event

Our next biggest event, the Pococha Homecoming, is coming up soon!

The winners will appear on a billboard in the famous Chinese Theater neighborhood of Hollywood, California.

15 competitors will battle it our for the top prize. Want to try? Only those who place in the Top 5 of the Hall of Fame events for April, May, and June will be able to compete in the August Homecoming event. So don’t miss out!

Use this as an opportunity to inspire your Family to continue working hard to try and claim the prize! In 15th place? Try to get to 10th to win the pin!

PocoKnight Makeover

We are looking to give our PocoKnights a makeover!

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback to our first drafts of these new Items. We’ll use your opinions to continue recreating them!

Here’s a first look at our ideas for the new Items! Please note, these are not the final designs, and are likely to change.

New Product Updates

We have some exciting new features coming out soon that we’d like to share. The details of these new features are still being decided, and the release dates are subject to change.

Coin Bonus For New Users

To help our broadcasters incentivize new viewers to send their first Item, we want to provide bonus Coins to them!

The bonus would look soemthing like this:

  • New user who registered within past 30 days makes their first Coin purchase
  • When they purchase $1 worth of Coins they receive 140 Coins.
  • As a bonus, we provide them with 300 extra Coins as well!
  • They will receive this bonus for up to 2 times.

Again, the details of this feature are being finalized, but this is the general idea!

We expect to release this feature in mid-May.

Viewer Ranking Notificatios

Broadcasters get to compete in the Ranks, so why can’t viewers?

Good news! We plan to introduce a system that will allow viewers to compete inside a single broadcast. A notification will appear each time a viewer has increased their ranking.

This feature is expected to release in late-May.

New April Features Reminder

Don’t forget about all our awesome features that were already released this month in April.

  1. 50K Core Fan Level – inspire your viewers to work hard and be the first in Pococha history to reach this level!
  2. Top 25 Broadcaster Bonus – be one of the top 25 broadcasters for the month of April and receive a bonus of up to 120,000 Diamonds!
  3. Return of Refer-A-Friend Program – Invite your friends to Pococha and you could both win 5,000 Coins each! Learn more & how to do it on our blog here.

Q&A Section

Thank you to all the users who submitted questions when they registered for the Round Table. We’d like to provide responses to some of the most asked questions!

Q: Why does Pococha move the meter so much?

We get this question every Round Table, but are happy to answer again! 

Pococha is a communication gaming app where broadcasters and their supporters compete to see who can create the most support. Pococha does not directly move the meter, it increased when broadcasters are competing to Rank up. 

Only a certain percentage of broadcasters can earn Rank Points each day, so they must compete to win. 

Remember, a creator is competitive on any platform whether they know it or not.  At Pococha. the competition is out in the open!

Pococha’s Philosophy

Direct competition is the best way for creators to earn support, grow their communities, and achieve their goals!  Daily communication between a broadcaster and their fans is the best way to strengthen connection.

We want to be an app for people that agree with this, and are rewarded from it!

Q: Users are reporting me for no reason, unfair!

Thank you for bringing this up.

Pococha’s moderation team conducts a full investigation for every report sent to us.

If there is no violation, no action or punishment is taken! There are no negative consequences for being reported many times, or for reporting/blocking others many times. 

Only when there is an actual violation!

Q: Is Pococha shutting down? I heard a rumor

This is most definitely a rumor!

No, Pococha US is not shutting down. In fact, we are growing faster than ever!

We have recently hired a lot more staff, included a top executive from Japan who has moved to the US to focus on taking the app to the next level here! We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the rest of this year, and the years after!

Q: Will Pococha allow broadcasters to stream from a computer?

Thank you for your suggestion! 

Currently we do not plan to focus on creating this feature, but it is possible in the future!

We want to focus on creating the best mobile experience first.

There are many other apps that allow different kinds of content with computer streaming. But one of Pococha’s best qualities is the deep intimate communication our broadcasters provide because it is only them on the screen! 

Q: When will there be new Items? Japan has way more!

We’re happy our users want more Items! We just announced over 20 new Items today! 

Many of which were taken from Japan Pococha. We are slowly bringing over popular Items from Japan, there were some in last month’s Item release as well! 

The Japan community is much larger and users Items in creative and strategic ways. As the US community grows and becomes experts in items, the amount of Items will also increase!

Which Japan Items would you like to see? 

Q: It seems like Pococha doesn’t want broadcasters to support each other, why?

We get this question a lot as well! 

First, Pococha does not prohibit broadcasters supporting each other. But, we do want to strongly discourage broadcasters relying on support from each other.

There are many ways to support each other that doesn’t involve spending money!  Support another broadcaster to inspire and motivate them, not to be their crutch for maintaining a certain Rank.

If you take a look at many competitor apps, the broadcasters are usually only successful because of the huge “trading” networks they form.

Pococha does not want to be this kind of app. We want to focus on being an app that values authenticity and genuine communication between a broadcaster and their fans. 

We do not want a creator to feel indebted to others in order to succeed. This is why we have a function in place that discourages broadcasters from sending Items to each other.


Thanks again to all who attended. We hope you can make the next Round Table!
