Sweatcoin counts the number of steps a user takes per day and turns it into cryptocurrency, which can be used to purchase products on the fitness platform

Want your morning runs to count more than calories? A new app called Sweatcoin tracks a person’s steps through their smartphone and converts them into a unique cryptocurrency.

Sweatcoin functions by connecting to a smartphone’s built-in fitness data and GPS locator. From there, the app counts how many steps the user takes based on their movement. This means those looking to acquire coins have to keep their GPS active, as the app won’t work on a treadmill or other stationary devices. For every 1,000 steps a person takes they earn 0.95 Sweatcoins.

Based on an individual’s activity, the currency can stack up quickly, and those who save enough have the opportunity to purchase one of the featured products, which range from an iPhone X to protein supplements. These items switch out every so often.

Anyone can download the app for free for an iOS or Android device; however, the free version limits the amount of Sweatcoin someone can earn per day. Sweatcoins can be used to purchase a premium version of the app to earn even more.
