It's finally happened, you can get paid to walk!
What? How could that work? It’s pretty simple really: the more you walk, the more you earn.
Sweatcoin is the new app which is steaming through the app charts. With so many offers to redeem with Sweatcoins (SWC), it’s hard to say no. After being recommended to this app, I joined over a week ago to find out exactly how it works, and whether it is achievable - and it definitely is. The app uses your phone to count your steps and converts them into their currency SWC. With these SWC you can buy vouchers or win items.
The further you walk, the more verified steps you can convert to SWC. You can really take this app everywhere with you, on your walk to work, on your walk to the local shop, or longer walks to earn even more. This app encourages walking and running and specifies that they are an incentive to exercise for people. They have recognised that in this day and age, levels of activity and exercise have decreased along with motivation levels. With all modern technology and the global rise of laziness has led to the need for this kind of money incentive and motivation to do exercise, which is very crucial to the human body. This increase of inactiveness is due to the change of requirements in employment, the increasing amount of technology that requires no activity, the huge increase of the use of cars and so many more factors. This is an innovative way to get you motivated and get you on the move. This just adds to the many other benefits of physical activity.
The vouchers include things, such as, £30 off Nike (online and in store), Amazon gift vouchers, Apple Watch, Personal Trainers, beauty items, fitness items, gym membership offers, and so many more. The idea is that these company's want to entice you in, rather than you go somewhere cheaper, so these offers are free for the app and, most importantly, free for you.
This app works in the background, so you don't even have to think about going on to the app and verifying your steps, because it does it all for you, counting your steps and converting them into SWC. It's really enjoyable, getting rewarded for walking, when you don't even realise how much you've earned, because it is that simple.
