There are a lot of healthcare items on the market, including apps that can keep you alert and remind you of doctor’s appointments, but SWEAT goes above and beyond these as it offers you a reward for walking with its Sweatcoin as a means of encouraging you to go for walks.
Users of the software had been converting their steps into sweatcoin up until this point, with one sweatcoin being equal to 1,000 steps. There are numerous methods to use these coin.
Users could use their steps to purchase physical or digital goods through the store, donate them to charity, or place bids on expensive commodities like gift cards.
It is a free app that rewards your everyday activity with a cutting-edge currency that you can use to buy your favourite things, give to good causes, or exchange for SWEAT.
A fitness program called Sweatcoin keeps track of your activity and rewards you for it. It does not offer a direct method for cashing out coins, however, rewards can be used instead.
Sweatcoins can now be changed into SWEAT. SWEAT contends that maintaining good health benefits society as a whole.
You contribute to healthcare cost savings of billions of dollars. Furthermore, you need a piece of your movement, since it has been worth it.
Once configured, it tracks your outdoor steps by using the accelerometer and GPS position of your device.
For every 1,000 outside steps you complete, the app now awards you 0.95 Sweatcoins; however, it automatically deducts a 5% commission from each Sweatcoin acquired.
Presently, Sweatcoin only counts your outside steps. This implies that any indoor steps you take, such as those at the gym, in the office, or when you must descend 22 flights of stairs during emergency procedures, won’t be included in your total.
However, the app did still record some of my home-based steps, which was a welcome addition to my overall step count.
How does Sweatcoin operate?
It can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play Store and used with an Apple Watch or smartphone.
You are asked for your name, mobile number, email address, and most importantly whether you want to give the app access to your GPS position after installing the app.
According to Sweatcoin, this is done to ensure that it only counts your outdoor steps and serves as a safeguard against users trying to game the system.
However, several commenters have voiced privacy concerns due to the significant amount of location data that could be at risk.
Sweatcoin responds by promising complete data privacy and announcing on its website that it will never sell user data.
