If you’re looking for apps to make taking extra steps worth your while, the Sweatcoin is exactly what you’re looking for. It’s an app that runs in the background and rewards you digital coins “Sweatcoins” for every 1000 steps you take. You’ll be surprised how many steps you take ain a day without even thinking about it; this app rewards you for them!
Want to get “paid” for your steps? Download Sweatcoin!
Here’s how it works. Sweatcoin teams up with hundreds of companies to offer you free gifts, discounts, and products in exchange for Sweatcoins.
You can earn up to 5-20 Sweatcoins per day, and each offer cost 5-500 Sweatcoins depending on how much it’s worth.
It’s is the best app for walking because you don’t need to do anything ‘extra’ to earn digital coins. Keep it running in the background and it will track outdoor steps per day. This is perfect if you’re a daily walker/runner because it’s very easy to earn 3-5 coins in a single session.
If you’re a runner, it’s even better. I earn about 1.3 Sweatcoins per mile I run. If you’re a walker you can expect 1.5-2 coins per mile or so.
There’s no incentive or catch. The app is entirely free to download and use. There are no paid upgrades. (All upgrades are paid only in Sweatcoin!)
Also, soon you will be able to exchange your walking/running steps for money on an exchange. In 2018, Sweatcoin announced that they want you to be able to purchase anything using Sweatcoin. They’re working on an ‘exchange listed currency’ very much like Bitcoin.
