Sweatcoin app for Android and iOS is slowly gaining the popularity and it had already recorded more than two million weekly users. But, the app is only available in the UK, US, and Ireland.
The app first asks to create an account. After you sign up the app and connect it to your phone’s health data, the app uses GPS to track your outdoor steps. The app gives you 0.95 Sweatcoins for every 1,000 steps you take. The sweatcoins can be spent in more than 300 stores.
According to the reports from TechCrunch, the startup company has raised almost $5.7 million seed funding from Goodwater Capital and other angels.
