  • A Great Motivator

    By ItalianBomb
    Personally, I LOVE this app! It has motivated me to get out of the house and do some exercises. I am in high school and in school alone I normally walk about 5,000 steps per day that’s during gym class and other outside activities. I have started walking up to 10,000 steps because this app made me realize that I am a better person when I’m not in the house all day. I feel great people tell me I look like I’m having a good day, I’m being positive, and just very happy and it’s all because of this app! I have told EVERYONE I know about this app because it is such a motivator.
  • Conversion ratio is awful, prizes too skimpy

    Don’t get me wrong, I love this idea. It’s an incentive for people to exercise more (even if the rewards are minimal) and the app makes money from advertising. Win win. The problem is that the steps do not convert well. I’ve had active days where my phone gets 9000 steps and i come out with 2 sweatcoins. The 65% ratio is a lie. At best i get 50% and often (when im legitimately walking around) I get nothing. The ratio for me has been floating around 25%. The algorithm needs to be less harsh and should automatically be raised the % earned by 35%. After all you guys agree that it only catches 65% of actual steps outside! Second, the iPhone is a joke, even the $50 amazon gift cards would take 2 years to earn making 5sc/day! You can forget the iPhone, it would take 11.11 years to earn (keep in mind that only 25% actually converts so 5sc = 20,000, which is achievable on a very active day.) The 20sc/day, however, is ridiculous. At the actual conversion ratio of 25%, you’d need to walk 80,000 steps a day to hit 20sc. If all you did during your waking hours (16 hours) is walk nonstop, you’d have to walk 83 steps EVERY minute of the day — FOR THREE YEARS. This is beyond stupid and needs to change if you want people to use your app. The prizes should be at 10 sweatcoins = $1 and prizes should range from 50-1000 sweatcoins, no more. Forget the iphone even at 10000sc. Even at 10sc=$1 and a fixed algorith, it would take 1.5 years at 20sc/day. Just scrap it.

  • Great idea, but a bit disappointing

    Not going to knock the idea of free money for steps. It’s just a bit frustrating when I’m logging 13,000 steps on a 10k run, verified through 2 fitness apps, and SweatCoin only certifies 2000 of them. Ran a half marathon 2 weeks ago and the app only logged about 1500 of the steps. So there definitely needs to be some sort of improvement made on the algorithm, or some software update to link with a GPS/Running app. At this point, I’d be happy with 65% of my steps verified, as I’m currently sitting at an average of about 20% verified per day.

    before the app updated, i loved it, it did what it said but, i deleted it after the update because it was glitching, and attempted to redownload it immediately after deletion, but whenever i try to verify my account with my phone number it says the code is incorrect. obviously it’s not incorrect if i copied and pasted it into the box it’s supposed to be in. please fix this so i can use the app again. it’s been over a month.
  • Useless

    Sure the app sounds great an all knowing you’re making cash for walking, but how much? You earn very little for the amount of steps and the things you can buy are around 3,500 or so! That’s an insane amount for just a few cents a day. And you clearly have to be outside, for me as a student (who has to be in the building the whole day) won’t get any credit for the insane amounts of steps I take every day, so as the title says, it’s useless. I just deleted the app
  • Good idea by needs a lot of work

    The idea is good but in reality I don’t carry my phone every time I walk. The count isn’t accurate and it costs quite a bit of money if you want to upgrade your account to give you more steps.

    Don’t be short-sighted... If the company successfully converts sweatcoin on to blockchain and it becomes a traded cybercurrency.. you’re gonna be bummed you didn’t use it. Worst case.. incentive to walk or jog more In my book that’s a WIN WIN! Read more if my thoughts about this awesome app at rupee.us
