Monetized YouTube channels have the option to earn revenue by offering memberships to users. A channel membership grants perks such as special icons that show up in a creator’s comment section, members-only live streams, and more. Previously, users could only buy memberships for themselves, but now with membership gifting, channel members can buy a set of memberships, i.e. 5, 10, 20, or 50 for their friends or to distribute randomly among subscribers in a single purchase.
