Step by Step
The aim of Sweatcoin is to incentivize active exercise, so the best method is to do just that! If you create a routine of regular walking or running and abide to it, you will be able to afford something in no time. As the offers are always being updated to include new rewards for users, it could be beneficial to earn as many coins as possible in preparation for a reward that you’d like, rather than focusing just on the offers currently on display. In a few weeks of casual walking, you’ll have enough to claim
Trading is an element of the app that has become more prominent in online communities, with the coins often being sold for relative monetary amounts via PayPal. As of January 2018, the unofficial value that seems to be commonplace in these communities is between 3 and 8 cents per coin. This can benefit you in two ways: either you could sell your coins for a nice extra few dollars, or quickly buy a few more to help reach the price of an offer you like. A keen eye should be kept on the ever-fluctuating price to pick up some extra coins for a decent price.
Another idea that utilizes the built-in function of coin transferring is the use of teamwork. Have friends that might enjoy the app? Send them your referral code and get them to download the app! (You’ll even get 5 coins for the referral). Then, if you see a reward that can be split between a group, you could all actively earn coins and pool them together. For example, between December 2017 to January 2018, there was an offer in which users could spend 20,000 coins to obtain £1000 or $1000 via PayPal. This would seem like an impossible amount to reach alone: at a rate of 10 coins per day, utilizing the ‘Shaker’ membership plan (More about membership plans can be read here), it would take just under 5 and a half years. However, with a large group of friends – let’s say 10 – all earning 10 coins each per day, this reward could be claimed in 200 days. This may still seem like a lot but most users of the app mostly clock in walking that they’d be undertaking regardless, so it’s nice to be rewarded for everyday tasks.
Whilst any of these methods, or an amalgamation of them, will work in your favour, it is best to do what feels right. Whether you are more of a passive walker or an intensive exerciser, there is always potential to rack up an impressive balance.
