Get paid to walk, something most of us do every single day, with the new Sweatcoin App for Apple and Android devices.
With the rise of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, we’re seeing new and exciting ways in which we can make digital currency creatively – and what better way than monetising actions we take in everyday life. Enter Sweatcoin, a simple and easy way to earn some cash on your daily walk to work or your even walking from bar to bar on a night out.
How Exactly Do I Get Paid to Walk?
It’s simple and easy to get started, you just have to download the app and go through the short setup process. You should click here to download the app and get started.
Once the app has successfully downloaded, you only have to go through a few steps before you get paid to walk:
- Open the installed App
- Enter your first name
- Enter your cell phone number (this is used to uniquely identify your Sweatcoin wallet)
- You’ll receive an SMS text message with a 4-digit code – enter that when prompted
- Enter your email address
- Confirm your details and then set-up is complete!
You should find that you end up on the Sweatcoin dashboard, which looks something like this:
At this point, you’re all ready to go and can start getting paid to walk. The app will run in the background even if you close the dashboard to track your steps via GPS while you earn Sweatcoins. You can then cash these in for rewards ranging from cheap specials on fitness equipment to Paypal cash rewards.
How Exactly Does Sweatcoin Work?
The Sweatcoin app allows you to get paid to walk through rewarding users with the Sweatcoin digital cryptocurrency. You can expect roughly one Sweatcoin per 1,000 steps. 1,000 steps is around half a mile on average (however this will differ for each person’s average stride), so you can actually generate coins pretty fast if you tend to walk your commute to work.
At first, there is a limit of only being able to generate five Sweatcoins per day, however, you can move up to membership plans which allow you to generate more overall for a small Sweatcoin fee per month. The current Sweatcoin plans work out as follows:
- Mover – Earn up to 5 Sweatcoins per day with no monthly fee (The plan everyone begins on).
- Shaker – Earn up to 10 Sweatcoins per day with a monthly fee of 4.75 Sweatcoins per month.
- Quaker – Earn up to 15 Sweatcoins per day with a monthly fee of 20 Sweatcoins per month.
- Shake – Earn up to 20 Sweatcoins per day with a monthly fee of 30 Sweatcoins per month.
- Trouble Maker – Coming Soon.
So as you can see, you can actually build up these coins pretty fast if you walk enough to cover the monthly fee. Anything with a monthly fee always seems a bit disconcerting at first, however, if you keep walking at the same rate every month, there’s no way you’ll end up losing money.
What are the App’s Rewards?
The rewards change every day, every week, and every month. If you keep checking in, you’ll soon find that some rewards remain consistent while others will come and go.
As of today’s date, the 11th of February 2018, here is what the rewards page is offering:
As you can see, there are some decent offers here but due to the app being relatively new, there are surely more to come as time passes.
One great thing about these coins is that you can send them from account to account. This means families and friends can pool together their Sweatcoins to get something big like £1,000 in Paypal cash or even a Samsung curved television.
Why not get others involved and all aim for something big? You will also all be getting healthier in the process by walking more often. There’s simply no downside.
