This App Lets You Earn Cryptocurrency Just By Walking Around. Take A Look!
A free app that rewards you for being active by paying you in its own currency has overtaken WhatsApp as the most popular app on the market.
Founded in 2016, Sweatcoin has seen a dramatic increase in popularity recently with more than two million active weekly users.
It is basically a health app which motivates a user to walk. But it comes with a little twist, the app tracks your outdoor steps and converts it into Sweatcoin cryptocurrency. The app makes use of phone’s GPS and phone’s accelerometer to track your outdoor steps.
Sweatcoin app for Android and iOS is slowly gaining the popularity and it had already recorded more than two million weekly users. But, the app is only available in the UK, US, and Ireland.
The app tracks your movement, from how many steps you take in a day and rewards you a monetary “sweat” value. For every 1 000 steps walked, a user is rewarded .95 in sweatcoins. Users can then trade in these coins for fitness gear, workout classes and several other offerings.
The app first asks to create an account. After you sign up the app and connect it to your phone’s health data, the app uses GPS to track your outdoor steps. The app gives you 0.95 Sweatcoins for every 1,000 steps you take. The ‘sweatcoins’ can be spent at over 300 stores, including Boohoo.com, Graze and Hellofresh.
