This Fitness App Uniquely Rewards You For Your Walking and Running
2018’s Hottest Fitness App – Sweatcoin
Since Winter 2016, Sweatcoin app has been available for smartphone owners in the United States. Created based on a simple premise, Sweatcoin vows to incentivize physical activity in the form of redeemable gifts, gadgets, coupons, discounts, memberships, and more. Based in the UK, Sweatcoin’s creators are releasing their app country-by-country around the world in order to promote a more physically fit and active lifestyle.
In the early days, good offers were hard to come by. There were, at most, 3 or 4 offers at any given time available for redemption. Now, in winter of 2017, there are anywhere from 8 to 15 offers on the marketplace featuring a diverse variety of rewards.
How Are Sweatcoin Earned?
You earn coins as you walk and run. Yes, you can even cycle your way into digital riches. For ever 1,000 steps you take, you earn 0.95 Sweatcoin. The remaining 0.05 return back to the creators for give-aways and the like. Rest assured, the app developers are not printing coins; every coin available came from somebody’s physical activity!
By default, users can earn up to about 5 coins per day. However, if users choose to upgrade their membership (payable in Sweatcoin itself) they can earn up to 19 Sweatcoins per day. The membership system is brilliant; rather than requiring a credit card purchase, users pay their membership fees in a set amount of Sweatcoin per month. The highest available tier, “Breaker,” requires a 30 coin payment per month, but it unlocks up to 19 coins per day. Technically, one could take 20,000 steps two days in a row to pay it off.
What Can You Purchase With Sweatcoin?
Most of the offers on the marketplace are some type of gift card, coupon, or discount. You’ll quickly notice that most/all offers relate to fitness and exercise. That’s an echo of the creators’ vision and outlook in terms of this app’s future – let’s get the average smartphone user excited about taking more steps.
How Can Sweatcoin Benefit The World?
According to many studies, the average Westerner is obese. Some call it an epidemic (implying something “out of control”). With obesity comes sickness and disease. In turn, this results in higher medical costs. This results in time and effort from doctors spent on treating the symptoms of the obese. Simply put, if there was a way to curb obesity on a grand scale, it would have a chance at literally changing the world.
Enter Sweatcoin. Humble in nature, the app encourages you to make more steps and asks you questions along the way. It rewards you (in the form of Sweatcoin) for sharing the app with your friends and family. All it asks in return is a favorable review on the app store. Simple as that!
The app does not show advertisements at all. It only features the brands and products of those who choose to promote them in the offer marketplace. The app does not request a credit card at any point. It doesn’t exist to make money; it exists to encourage and reward physical activity.
