The gamification of our lives with sweatcoin — “It pays to walk”
As our lives become cluttered with apps, with each one promising to make you more productive, organised or even wealthier, could it be possible that there is one that will pay you to be healthier?
Well that day has finally arrived. On scrolling through the app store, researching how to make my next million through crypto currency I stumbled upon a new innovative app known as sweatcoin. From get rich opportunities, to Ponzi schemes, the app stores are overwhelmed by over stated promises and endless testimonials of question. But sweatcoin appeared to be something different.
On satisfying my interest further, I noted that the sweatcoin app made no promises to make you rich, nor did they send you down a rabbit hole of conditions. Simply put, sweatcoin exercise app tracks your steps and pays you in ‘Sweatcoins’- a type of token based cryptocurrency.
Ultimately, you can put your sweatcoin currency to use in their store, assuming that you generate enough tokens. If you open your app wallet you’ll be able to check you balance, and in the challenges section you can set yourself (and your friends) a target to access a range of gifts and support charitable causes.
So the question remains, is this a fitness app, or is this another app full of potential?
As far as I can tell, at the point of writing I am willing to give it a go. There are no fees, no credit or charge cards. Yes, you can get a bonus for signing up your friends, but again with no real money why not get your “squad” together and set yourself a challenge? Given that we are in a global environment where gym access has been limited and a need to improve mental and social health is prominent, why not jump on board this pseudo crypto journey?
