Get paid to get fit, seems too good to be true to me. Imagine how many individuals would have considered hitting the gym if they got paid in cash for it.
To make people actually leave their respective comfort zones, a free application will be launched next week, naming it “Sweatcoin” that will give out digital rewards to individuals who decide to work out.
By utilizing all the available tools and locating devices installed in your smartphone, Sweatcoin aims to motivate its users to hit the gym. And the only way to do it is by rewarding them both monetarily as well as non-monetarily.
Get paid to get fit seems to me one of the most effective means of workout motivation. According to the Co-founder, Oleg Formenko:
“This whole business is pegged to making movement valuable. Eventually, sweatcoin is going to have a rate of exchange tied to the British pound.”
Sweatcoin’s future plan is to provide actual cash to its users who want to get physically fit. While insurers and the hirers of the company might decide to invest for acquiring digital money, resulting in healthy users and workers of the company.
For keeping things legit and 100% functional, of course, there are precautionary measures installed in its system preventing users from cheating and rigging its system.
Till now this app is only available on iOS; however, it’s only a matter of time before it also comes out on an Android version within a few months. Moreover, it will also be available in the USA and not restricted to the UK only.
