Not the best
This app is great and all , but it cheats you . Like everyday I walk at least 3,000 steps and it gives me like 21 cents when I should be getting 3 dollars/sweatcoins. Also the prizes may be cheap but some items have shipping and that shipping is like 6-20 dollars which is not reasonable , in amazing I pay like 3.00 dollars shipping. I shouldn’t be paying over 4.00 dollars for shipping for something that cost 1 dollar/sweatcoin . If this app does it fix its issues I will delete the app . Also sometimes for the daily reward videos , the videos won’t always come , it will say “there are no more daily reward please come back later and try again” and I will go in the app 5-15 times a day and it’s will still stay the same exact things . So I will have to wait for the next day . 2 more things you have to make your prices for prizes cheaper , I really wanted a iPhone XR and I was walking for 6 months and only make 500 dollars and then the offer goes away , this is honestly a waste of time and storage. Last thing if anyone is cheating on the app it’s you , you guys own me over 50 dollars due to your dumb algorithm and setup to see that all of the steps were made in a fair way. Please fix these issues and I will gladly keep the app and use it and recommend to people , I am currently telling people to get it because of these reasons , if you don’t want to fix these issues , I will also gladly delete the entire app and never get it again😊.

Walking sweats = money... WORTH IT!!!!
I read reviews of others and to be honest I kinda find some of their negative review very hard to believe. I find this app worth it! I am lazy person. I’m gonna be honest with that. And I’m not a big fan of exercise and always find a excuse to not exercise. Because I have no motivation at all. Until this app. When I see that It “just earning money by making sweat and walk outdoor.” All I see is Motivation so I tried it at 2019 August. I could clearly tell I’m seriously out of shape after first couple days with it. So I stick with it and sure enough I earn more that 100$ in less than 2 months. And not just I have good money. It also keep me in shape! I like to exercise and it been helping me to lose weight! And getting my body healthier! now thanks to this app. I haven’t make any purchases yet but I’ll purchase the gift cards or some product when I’m ready. but Where is the negativity of this app? Because I don’t see it! This app is worth it for lazy people like me who have no motivation and interest in exercise. This is big boast for us to get back on feet and being active again. I believe that this Sweetcoin will be huge business in future! And yes more bonus and more products in future. My Advice is just try this app! It worth it! It might not be perfect in your opinion but it is constantly upgrading so it might meet up your expectations one day! Just Try it! You’ll love it!

Hitting points that matter!
So, I hope I can encourage at least ONE person to dowload this app! Sweat coin has been doing updates lately making the app even better than it already is . I enjoy having it run in the background because it actually calculates the steps you take . Yes, you have to do some form of walking , No , you can’t sit still & expect steps to calculate on their own . You can only spend the money you make on items that are IN the app store! But they always switch items up and there’s a cash “item” as well when you reach a certain dollar amount on your balance . I’ve read reviews & see that some are complaining about how Sweat Coin wants to share data with your health app, pay attention when you are being asked! You do NOT have to share your data with Sweat Coins, they just ask. So I’m not sure what made people give them a bad review because overall the app does what it says it will do! If you lack motivation to move around, download this amazing app that should motivate you to move quite frequently! There’s not many apps that actually do what they tell their customers that they’ll do, but the Sweat Coin app is worth the space on your phone! Spread the word & let’s motivate each other to walk more frequently! Awesome app Sweat Coin developers!

Not truly counting steps...
Pretty cool app, but asking access to my iPhone’s health app to verify steps and only compute half or 1/3 of the actual steps taken registered by my iPhone is pointless. Is this not to give user sweatcoins? Why not use your app to piggyback onto the health app and use the data recorded on both apps (yours and iPhone) to verify so there’s no cheating? I have a 10 acre homestead and walk A LOT all day. Outdoors. When it’s very hot I switch my sleeping schedule to do chores throughout the night and sleep when it’s the hottest part of the day. My iPhone counted 11k steps in one day, Sweatcpins registered 4K.... the idea of the app is awesome to inventive people to stay moving, but you (developers) should be a bit more in tune with whatever app you request access to on our phones. Oh, and because I know I take thousands of steps every day, I opted for a system that charges me 20 sweatcoins a month, but if you’re not counting truly all the steps I take, I may just delete your app, because it feels like the ones whos cheating here is you... will keep it a little longer and see what happens. Understand that allowing you to track my location and access to my health data is not something I want you to have for free, like everything in this world, data mining comes with a price, and if you’re not offering your users a decent payout and registering ALL the steps I take, you may not get to keep my data... and that’s not my isolated opinion...

there’s a lot to talk about
ok so sweatcoin is an interesting app. you really have to not delete the app if you want anything worth purchasing. i have joined in december of 2017, and i have around 1.8k coins. i am writing this review in april of 2019. first off is the purchase you can make with sweatcoin. the proportions really do not line up at all. for example, you can buy some fancy socks worth 15$ for 1.5k sweatcoin. now, you can also buy a jewelry subscription and a 21$ shopping credit for a mere 10 sweatcoin. the proportions rarely line up. sure, the developers can’t argue too much with their companies but still it should be slightly better. next, is the things you can buy. it’s all repetitive items and they are most of the time all discounts for items. idk about everyone else, but i want to buy stuff for free. no money involved PERIOD. too many of the free offers are MUCH too expensive and cost too much sweatcoin for one person no matter how much they walk. speaking of which, the step counter algorithm is god awful. sure, you don’t want people shaking their phones but COME ON. i have a fitbit and it tells be i walk around 8k steps everyday! sweatcoin on the other hand that only 1k of those 8k were actually real steps. at least let the algorithm be a little more generous here. now, you really want this app, just download it, forget about it, and check every week or so to see what offers are new. (please improve the algorithm and add in more free stuff)

Inaccurate step conversion
This app is somewhat motivating, but very frustrating. My biggest issue is their algorithm for step conversion—it’s wildly inaccurate and undercounts my steps by at least 50% every day. Today for example, I did my 20 minute daily boost - inside, on a treadmill, walking with my phone in my hand. I could literally see the steps ticking up in the app during this time, and before the boost ended, I had over 2000 steps in. Then, when the boost was complete and the steps were “calculated”, the app told me that I had somehow taken a measly 356 steps in that time! SECONDS before, it said I had taken 2000+. My Apple Watch and phone also said that I had taken over 2000 steps, and once I exited out of the boost, my total steps had increased by over 2000 as well. But for some reason, Sweat Coin decided that only a fraction of my steps actually counted. Seriously?! To make matters worse, I actually PAY for this app because I assumed that it would be the fastest way to get coins for the offers and products…since I’m constantly and consistently being inaccurately converted, though, it’s probably taking just as long as if it were accurately counting my steps without any “boosts” or bonuses. I feel cheated and will definitely not be renewing my subscription. The rewards are fine. The app itself is attractive. I do find it motivating to try to increase my activity and distance. But omg, walking 15k steps in a day and only getting credit for 7k is just BAD.

The future is here... but needs a little work
The future has arrived ! In regards to online cryptocurrency that is. What better way to earn “money” than by sweating! This app is fairly new and still working out some kinks. I myself had managed to earn around $100 worth of sweat coins in one month. Not too bad, especially considering that I’ve been living at St Jude Children’s research hospital in Memphis, TN while my son fights brain cancer. We take him to the park after radiation to enjoy the Mississippi River and the Tom Lee statues and we run it out! How amazing to be rewarded for something that is already rewarding in itself. Watch , before long Sweatcoin is going to be a major currency. And it’s value is going to be tremendous! I’ve already managed to try some pretty amazing (and not so amazing) products via Sweatcoin currency. I am even looking into putting some of my products on there. Think of the diversity of people looking at Sweatcoin! Imagine 2 years from now the publicity Sweatcoin will have for a business owner or marketer. Amazing! I am super stoked about the future of Sweatcoin and already happy with majority of the products I’ve purchased via Sweatcoin. If only shipping were FREE! Then it would get 20/10 ****** stars !

Not as great as promised
Sweat coin has a great idea but it isn’t being executed very well. First off the step counter is WAY off, all the time. I noticed from the beginning I was getting cheated out of at least 1000 steps a day, usually more. When you finally have generated enough steps to buy something your options are seriously limited. Most of them fall into health and fitness categories, which I don’t mind it would just be nice to have a bit more variety. Then after you get past the physical items they have a variety of coupons to offer in exchange for sweat coins. Please don’t buy coupons on this app, I promise you can get almost all of them from a different source without having to pay anything for them. A quick Google search will find the same coupon. I did that frequently and saved my sweat coins. I only was able to buy on thing with my sweat coins that I was interested in. In the end I ended up paying about $20 in shipping for the item. It was a bag of coffee and I was really hesitant to pay, but since I had already used my sweat coins I didn’t want to waste them. The app would also continuously crash on me as well. Ultimately I donated the rest of my sweat coins to charity, which I am willing to bet much of the money did not actually go to said charity. I have since deleted this app and I don’t see myself getting it again. If another app pops up following the same idea in a more honest way, I’ll probably give it a try.

Not what it used to be
I made my account December 4, 2017 and I’m not going to complain about the algorithm for getting/achieving sweatcoins. I’m a moderate walker and I take public transportation so most the times when I am walking it’s just to get from point A to point B but that’s not what I’m complaining about what I am complaining about is the Rewards. when I first started using this app, you had the ability to get iPhones to get prepaid debit cards of your choice or just straight up transfer your sweatcoins into cash via your PayPal account now all of those options are gone and the sweatcoins app just looks like one giant advertisement everything in the shop tab says you can get this item 40% off or 30% off but there’s a catch you can only get these deals if your first time users, these aren’t even regular coupons most of the time you’re lucky if you can get 40% 30% or 20% off deal without having to be a first time user I’ve constantly complained within the app about the rewards and I have not seen anything being done about them so at this point, I might as well just delete the app and free up some space on my phone but if you just want to use this app as a fun little challenge between friends while you’re jogging or going about your day-to-day activities, then this is the app for you otherwise don’t even bother

Deleting the app for the second time
I downloaded the app a year ago. I wasn’t really benefiting from it and needed the extra space in my phone so I deleted it. I redownloaded the app a month ago in hopes that the app had improved and I noticed it had pretty decent reviews since I uninstalled it so I gave it another try. The app does not count all of your steps and it only works with your phone or an Apple Watch of certain versions. The app doesn’t allow you to use other smart watches even though my smart watch has all of the qualifications that the creators claim their app needs. I sent them a support problem ticket bringing up several issues to take into consideration and they sent me the generic answer on their forum about solving the problem instead of actually reading the ticket and sending a reply. I messaged them back asking them to read the ticket and to get back with me but after a week of waiting I got nothing. I sent another ticket and within 2 minutes got another generic answer to my problem that had nothing to do with what was actually on the ticket. I gave two stars because the idea behind the app is a good one but the app itself needs work, not to mention the customer support is tacky and useless if you’re problem isn’t addressed in their help me section. I am uninstalling the app again but I don’t see myself giving it a third chance after this

SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM
Where do I even begin?? Okay- so I’ve started out with sweat coin and there are SO many issues honestly; 1, the accuracy of the tracker only accounts to about 10-25%, which means that of the 7,000 steps I walk in a day I only get the credit for about 5,000 of those- a 2,000 difference. 2, when I finally chose an item ( the asleep gummies for five SWEATCOINS, NOT MONEY), at the checkout I was asked to fill out my credit card information IN DETAIL AND I QUOTE, “ Enter your name exactly as it’s written on your card”. I know I’ve had my moments but c’mon I’m not an idiot. More into detail upon this subject, when you go to “ pay” for said item in specific writing one of the steps claims that a discount will automatically be applied to the purchase, which means that my credit card information isn’t and SHOULDN’T be needed at all!! However this is not the case and NO WHERE in the app is there a discount for purchases related to the app. None. Go look, please. I was recommended this app and was told it wasn’t a scam, however upon further investigation this was proven invalid and completely ridiculous. If something doesn’t give within the next 24 hours, I’m deleting the app and having the person who recommended it to me delete it as well. Please don’t trust apps like this they’re all scams and if you think they’re not- check your credit card and payment history. Double check all of it.

Beware of this app
If I could give this app a zero star, I would. 1) For you to get any real prize, say a $50 gift card, you’ll have to walk OUTSIDE for 20 miles, that’s over 180,000 steps COUNTED. 2) This app doesn’t count all your steps. I just did an experiment of walking to the mall (it said 4310) and back and it said it only saw 51 steps. That’s $.04 sweatcoins. Mind you, I did not walk inside the mall, just from my doorstep to the the bus stop in front the mall and back (I live close by). The amount of steps on my Apple Watch was 7215 for both directions, while this app saying something different. Over 2800 steps off. 3) It drains your battery life significantly while open in the background. 4) it using your location constantly with no real reward for it. And I don’t see why it’s using the GPS if it cannot calculate the amount of steps it would take from point A to point B CORRECTLY. Makes no sense. 5) You’ll have to pay money for these so call “prizes” at a 3% discount rate (when you do the calculations). This is nothing but a scheme for you to sell your location and activity for nothing really. While forcing you to spend money on things you really don’t NEED. It’s a profitable business for the developers while us users lose. In conclusion, is this what you worth users? Sell yourself to someone who’s paying well for you, cause at the end of the day, that’s all this about, cyber prostitution. Just keeping it real. *App deleted*

Cans for coins
This app is really cool. Cashing in on your sweatcoins is the biggest downside of this app. If you’re looking to get paid for walking, you’re better off getting some garbage bags and collecting empty cans off the street to sell for scrap metal. I’ve had this app for a over a year so let me tell you about my experience. I’m sitting at 1,000 sweatcoins with nothing of value to use them on. When I initially downloaded the app, I was disappointed with the rewards being offered and the rewards have never gotten better. You may find a promo coupon to spend your sweats on but you still have to pay high shipping. It would be nice if sweatcoin could cover the high cost of shipping associated with some of their physical promos, but that can’t happen because sweatcoins have no value. The 4-5 physical product promo deals are usually all cheap looking products you wouldn’t buy if you saw them at a store. Overall I would say this app sells you a dream in exchange for collecting your data. Apparently I’m their target audience though because I keep the app around hoping one day my sweatcoins will do something more than make me upset.

It’s okay?
I’ve been in this app for two years and I’ve only earned a bit less then 600 sweat coin, it’s a good concept and a lot of items are free now. But if you need a bank account and all these random things the app should be for 18+, and it’s not. My friend tried buying something and wasted her sweat coin on the product, it used to be kinda creeping when you exited the app from your background apps and the you got a notification that you killed it... they don’t have that now but the was really creepy and would make you feal guilty about it. In addition if you buy one of the prizes for over 10k sweat coin you have to film you going there and sweatcoin gets to Edit the video, I dont see a reason why you have to film your trip going on vacation. Also it would take you years and years with the highest earning sweatcoin choice to earn over 10k sweat coin. If you were someone random marathon runner that’s over 18 and has its own house and everything then this app would be great! But if your just someone super lazy (me) then this isn’t the best app, you could get it when your like a teen and save up for big prizes when your a adult though. I would overall recommend this app it would just take a really long time to save up. 🙂

Absolute trash
I have never taken time to review any app but I felt very compelled to as I just tried to send feedback through from a prompted “do you love out app??” and after several attempts of hitting the frowned face and explanation with it saying “could not send feedback” as an error code…guess what?? It went through fine when I changed it to a smiley face….hmmm. So basically I signed up for it a few years ago seeing if I could get something back for the steps I was doing. At the time they would occasionally post some Apple products (from big big points accumulating, but fair enough) along with some little $5 things and some 50% off things. I don’t mind being marketed to in a free app as long as they’re providing value to me. Maybe the paid version has more, but I’m not here to buy things I’m here to trade an activity for goods at the cost of being marketed to. Now it’s nothing but free trials and coupons after years of steps. Don’t waste your time, they don’t want to use those dollars the marketers are paying them to make it a remotely valuable experience for users. I don’t even trust they’re properly donating from the “donation” section of purchases. The fake feedback was what disgusted me enough to make a public review- if you’ve built an app that so bad you won’t even take feedback within the app, I guess I’ll just have to post publicly.

HOW DO WE GET REWARDS
I was told about this and you earn money for walking so I downloaded it and the fact it has to access a bunch of crap is completely stupid and better yet they said that we would give you a gift card k cool when? In 5 years? I’ve had it for a week now and almost 10,000 steps a day and no reward. I’m about to delete it because I’m starting to think it’s fake. Excuse me while I go walk around the world and see if I get nothing (Probably won’t). I just checked my phone and sweat coin and it was the same (pat on the back there sweat coin) but then I checked my Fitbit charge 2 and it said 3,028 steps my phone (and sweat coin) said like 1,600 something. I’m not necessarily blaming Apple I’m blaming sweat coin because why can’t you like connect too my Fitbit bit you can connect to a Apple Watch makes ALOT of sense. Also it’s like 1,000 steps a sweat coin right? (That’s acodring to me) if the developers are purposely doing this I might as well delete sweat coin it’s basically useless, except for taking up my storage I’ll say that. So I literally just found out how to spend it so I went and not some stuff then accidentally put on 010 think it would be 0.10 but I couldn’t see the . because I have a cracked phone screen . So.. can I get a refund or something? Also it would be nice if Sweatcoin would like send you a gift card and ask for a address would be nice then buying a bunch of at of this world random stuff

Not going to make you rich, but still a great app
I’m a college student who also works, so my walking is mainly to and from classes. In the past 8 months, I’ve made roughly 500 sweatcoins( $25 USD) just from walking and doing their daily add rewards. All you’ve got to do(this May be why I’ve seen other reviews mentioning that steps aren’t counted correctly) is leave the app on. If you want to make an extra 15 sweatcoins a week, watch the daily add ever day. Each add is 30 seconds or less, so I usually watch them while walking to class. I haven’t even been doing the daily adds for long, so let’s assume that I’ve only made 400 sweatcoins from walking, that’s still $20 for something I’m doing anyways. They also have some great deals in the app like joining twine for 100 sweatcoins and having them add $15 to your twine account ($15 equals 300 sweatcoins so it’s a better return value). All in all, the app isn’t always going to be extremely accurate on step counting, especially since they avoid counting steps inside building, but it’s money you’ll get for essentially doing nothing so can we really complain🤷‍♂️ love the app. Will keep using it and will keep referring it to friends.

AMAZING!
Absolutely love this application, it is opening up doors to new products for me and it is allowing me to be more active for certain things. Plus if you already walk a lot it’s an amazing/useful tool to have! The only complaint I have is when you force close the application you receive a notification and the moment you log back on it has an annoying message that you can’t turn off!!! I understand it needs to be open in the background and I also understand that some people might not have that knowledge but is there a way to update it so certain people like me can choose to turn off the message that’s poos up everyone you re-open the application, the only options are to keep clicking I understand or tell me more and it’s seriously annoying... otherwise still 5 stars! Very impressed and I hope that there is still some better algorithms or maybe a way to incorporate an AR(Augmented reality) system for someone like me who goes to the gym and runs on treadmills? Just an idea! Plus it does have a fair amount of battery drain which can be difficult... but I approve of everything you are doing so thanks for making such an awesome app!!

How much do you expect to get for WALKING?
I do agree that the conversion rate is sometimes wonky, but I don't know where there are so many negative reviews. Everyone is saying how the app is "fake" "scam" and the prizes are "unattainable" because it takes it you years to achieve it... But let me ask you something.. How much do you expect to get paid for walking? You should be happy youre getting paid at all. Do you expect them to give you 20$ a day just to walk?? Dont be ungrateful, if it takes you a little extra time to get the prize so what? whether you get it in 5 years or 10 years youre still getting the $1000, just for walking! Regardless if you use this app or not, youre still gunna be walking right?? Might as well keep this app on in the background and get paid. Sure its a small amount (its like 10cents a day) but still, youre 10cents richer, and in x amount of years itll cumulate to $1000. People nowadays are ridiculous, and so ungrateful. They expect to get everything in a blink of an eye, this app is amazing and a genius! It keeps me motivated to reach my goal. And sometimes I wouldnt mind taking the longer way when walking. I am so glad I found this app!

A revolutionary app stoops to profes. S C A M ARTIST!
The fact that this app persuades us users into paying for the monthly subscription to get more coins for our actual steps taken + more prize opportunities is absurd. I feel 1 0 0 % scammed due to the fact that I have been checking the shop daily as well as paying for the subscription for almost 2 months (not to mention I’ve been using the app itself for almost 5 YEARS!!!!! & not ONE item for purchase w/ sweat coins hasn’t been sold out… I can never redeem for prizes besides the products being advertised by discounting them for the sellers. I even check at midnight right when the new items in the shop refresh & they’re STILL SOLD OUT. This app is an absolute S C A M 🚨. I’m realizing we’re being convinced to pay the monthly fee for nothing but “sold out” prizes that aren’t even real. First impression was 4- 5yrs ago when I downloaded. I was honestly excited & impressed by their great idea for an app to help get ppl motivated to be more active. What caught my eye was the top prize for my steps was $1000 for 20,000 SC. I knew it would take me at very least a year but I was determined!Now my impression of the app.. it’s becoming a full scam & of course has taken that $1K prize down. Def disappointed & won’t be continuing to use this myself and ESPECIALLY will never embarrass myself again by recommending to friends!

Coming from a 13 year old
I’ve have this app for a couple of weeks almost a month and I’ve made about 40$. Me being young and not really paying attention I thought nothing was wrong about this app. Although it says that it pays you for your steps and for the daily exercise it gives you cause of quarantine, it doesn’t pay in cash. I know most apps don’t pay in cash but they go onto a credit card or a prize, but I’ve been looking and can’t seem to find how to add a card to the app to transfer the money I make to the card. I’ve seen that what you make goes as credits to gas and shopping. People downloaded this app and walk and stay fit to make money but not understanding that what you make might not even be very helpful for when you want to go online shopping or going to grab a lunch. Another problem I’ve noticed was that you can walk 1,000 steps for example and it would only count about 200 of the steps you took, which drops down the cents you could have made accurately. I’ve talked to my mom about this and we’ve both agreed that it was a scam and that it was a waist of time. I personally think that this app shouldn’t be downloaded and should be deleted if already downloaded. For a 13 year old I didn’t think I would be able to notice these mistakes, but they are way too noticeable and causes major problems.

DON’T waste your time with this app!!!
This app is a SCAM!!! You think you’re earning free money just by walking around outside, but here’s the catch; the items you can purchase with your Sweatcoins still demand some of your own money for shipping, membership, etc. and you end up getting sucked into something you thought was a good deal, but I’ve checked multiple times and they probably save you only $2 at most. I’ve read soooo many reviews saying that Sweatcoin ripped them off after they had already spent their unfairly earned coins for “prizes” and when they tried to fix the problem with Customer Service, they never picked up, never returned phone calls, kept getting transferred to person after person, you name it. (I don’t say unfairly earned lightly, you could participate in 5 marathons in a day and they would only give you about $2 worth of coins) Thankfully, I didn’t experience this first hand because I was saving my coins for the ultimate price; $1,000. And I’m so glad I deleted the app before I invested too much time into it, because I would have been furious!! ALSO, they track your location 24/7 to continuously count the steps you take every hour of every day, but honestly that is just straight up sketchy....Not worth it. ANDDDD they force you to keep the app running so it can be on in the background, lurking, tracking, and watching your every move. How creepy is that???

Ok so let me start off by saying sweatcoin is a good app BUT there are some issues. 1. Sweatcoin doesn’t really count your step. I have a Fitbit and it says I walk/run about 7-8k steps a day. On sweatcoin it says that I only take about 4K. I would like sweatcoin to improve this issue. Btw YOU CANNOT EXPECT PEOPLE NOT TO SHAKE THEIR PHONE!! 2. Sweatcoin gives offers that are really low sweatcoins, but shipping is super high. Now I understand shipping is going to cost SOME money but not as much as you guys charge. So I would expect shipping for a lot of cheap stuff to be like $4 or $5 but when I try shipping it here it cost like $20 !!!! I would like for this app to improve this to. But what I do like it that you could earn things just for walking!! Thank you to anyone who made this app but just please improve it. C’mon like just improve and FIX your things and maybe I won’t have to think about deleting this app anymore. I want to have this app because you could get stuff for just walking but this is pretty much like a SCAM. So... for all the people that are thinking the same thing just do what you want to do, but in a few days I might delete this app if it doesn’t get improved and I suggest other people do that too. ☺️

Straight Forward App
Even though I originally thought the app was about getting paid real money to walk (I know how stupid it’s no such thing as money that easy lol) I can’t be upset with the fact that I can turn my steps into other beneficial stuff. Just like my title said it’s a very straight forward app and extremely easy to earn “sweatcoins”. A lot of apps that claim to do the same thing try to make you work way too hard to see any real profit, but this app was paying out from the get go. I took a long walk late at night (as I usually do since my PTSD & Depression keeps me wake from time to time) and before I knew it I earned 17 “SweatCoins”. It didn’t take long at all since I only walk around my neighborhood, down to the corner gas station and back home. I was out for an hour but only about 30 mins of that was spent walking. If I earned that much only walking that short about of time I can’t wait to see what I make when I do my long all day walking a various places. This app though is the epitome of you get what you put into it. So get out and grind and make you some “SweatCoins” I know I will lol.

Meh
Updated review: This app has gotten worse. There used to be free stuff and now it's pretty much only discounts, often deals you can get by just going to the company's website. It functions more as ad space for the companies listed in the "marketplace". I have thousands of sweatcoins and nothing to spend them on at this point. As a pedometer it works pretty decently, but the whole "walk for money" thing is largely non existent at this point and that's the main draw. Old review: I like this app because, even though I try not to bring my phone everywhere with me, the idea of meeting a daily goal or a weekly/monthly step average provides an incentive to take the stairs, park in the back of the lot, go for a walk, run another lap, etc. It's a fun way to keep track of my habits and improve them. I have also gotten some cool stuff from it. It doubles as an advertising platform for startups which I guess is cool. I'm not much of a consumer but I've tried stuff I wouldn't have otherwise tried because of the offers on sweatcoin. It's fun. I also like the new daily bonus format because it encourages the user to at least hit 2,000 steps each day. My job is sedentary, so it helps me get up and move to get coin. Overall, cool.

Fantastic App!! It’s a big must have!! Just one thing..
Thank you so much Sweatcoin, I seriously appreciate you guys ive lost 20 pounds and was able to purchase a WEARABLE KEYBOARD a month or two back with the sweatcoins. I now take about 8k-10k steps a day and its incredible that a free app changed my perspective on fitness it still blows my mind. All my friends have it, we share sweatcoins and were currently 2k away from getting $1000 cash!!!! You guys are incredible!! The down side of this is that when i downloaded it i hoped it would not only help me lose weight but also earn money, like real money. Ive seen adds all the time on snapchat about getting hundreds of dollars per week or whatever real money USD. And i work like a real job, im only 16 and i hoped i could end up having thousands maybe. Im not saying you all cheated but could you please tell the people that sponsor yall to not scam like that. My friend got pretty upset when she found out it was a lie by a snapchat user. Other than that you guys’ app is amazing, please keep updating and keep thriving!! You guys are truly amazing i cant thank you enough for the easy easy weight lose!!

Very good app idea. 3.5/5
This app is a very good app. when you first start you can get a lot of sweatcoins fast, but as time goes on it get harder and harder to make a couple a day. I used to make almost 8-10 a day now it’s hard making one or two. The app has a great idea to get out side more but the majority of people I see using it are people who are at school or at work. Once I got almost 20,000 steps but only 600 of them counted because those are the only ones that were “outside” steps, when I had to go shopping at the mall. I was not happy to say the least when I had around 20,000 steps and almost none of them counted. Your app in whole is very good. You have a great app idea but one recommendation is that any and all steps count because everybody I see uses it while they’re at work school or every day life and they don’t really have the time to get out as much as most people do. I know myself I do a lot of walking around in school and my home but I can’t really get out as much but I try to as much as possible so I can get any sweatcoins. Just one little tidbit is that please Think about changing your app so that all steps count towards sweatcoins. Keep you algorithm that processes steps but please try to change it a little so that actually works.

I have used this app since 2018. I accumulated I decent amount of money from this app. That being said, I cannot spend it. Yes, there are things you can “buy” but theoretically, you still have to pay using your money though your have “earned” the amount by walking through the application and spending it that way, not including the free stuff. I’ve been saying this for the past couple of years and I’m gonna say it now ADD A CASH OUT OPINION! PLEASE! It’s crazy how in almost 6 years that’s still not an option yet in this platform has grown so much. I keep it on my phone and hopes of one day there will be a cash out option but it’s very difficult and even when there is some form of that through PayPal, it’s first come first serve and it’s not like I live on the app all the time. I just think if some of us have been on this app for quite some time, should be able to have more incentives, especially if we keep the app and walk to earn money, it would only make sense that we would get an option to just pay out instead of spending the money we’ve earned to still spend our own money. just something to think about.

Could Be A Lot Better TBH
I downloaded this app because I’m a walker. I walk anywhere between 12k steps to 25k steps a day. So far I’ve had this app for three days and I’ve made 29 sweatcoins which isn’t bad. I figured if I was going to be walking sm anyways that I should be compensated for it lol. Just browsing through the stuff to buy though I’ve been a little disappointed. Mostly all they offer are free trials of apps or subscriptions or you can use your hard earned sweatcoins to pay for percentages off of expensive items or subscriptions. Some items you pay for you do also have to pay shipping, which is kinda lame. I wish that they would offer gift cards that you could cash out for. Even if they were expensive in sweatcoins I feel like that would be more worth it for a prize, gives people something to save up for and cash out on for a rainy day fund. They do offer auctions, where you can bid for like expensive tech items or like a $500 gift card, but the people who bid on those things spend like hundreds of thousands of sweatcoins, so unless you’re a Sweatcoin millionaire you don’t stand a chance 😂. You get paid okay if you walk a lot, if you don’t walk much then you probably won’t make much money. Just wish the prizes were better.

Creepy Scam
This app is just a means of tracking you for free, and I will tell you why. The prizes take an extraordinarily long time to reach, even if you are walking the maximum amount each day. There is a $1000 PayPal prize which the app says is available after 18 MONTHS, but even if you are on the highest subscription, it would take you about 3 YEARS to earn this reward unless you referred the app to a ton of friends for 5 sweatcoins each. 3 years of data on how much you walk, how much all of your friends walk, and where. In the meantime you are left with some truly mediocre rewards (granted, I’ve been on it for a day), forcing you to keep walking to try to earn an iPhone, gift card, or television . If you walk inside, the steps aren’t counted, but the app will still be tracking you without giving you sweatcoins. If you aren’t earning anything for being tracked then you should close the app to save your data/battery, right? Sweatcoin doesn’t think so. It will ping you with a notification saying “You killed me! 😳 Do not force quit me if you want to generate sweatcoins. Tap here or walk 1000 m to restart me.” This guilts people into constantly have the app running in the background all the time, which allows the company to gather GPS data and analyze your daily whereabouts without rewarding you. DO NOT download this app. Sell your GPS data to a company instead.

Works. Hopeful about it’s future.
Yes. you really do need to turn the battery saver off when you go outside. As a dog walker I am getting plenty of outdoor steps in. They are working on recording inside steps too, so if that appeals to you it’s worth downloading now to get in on the ground floor. I’m racking up an extra Sweatcoin every day just for viewing an offer or ad. In less than a week I had enough to get extra audiobooks which I like. I think that as the company grows they will be able to offer better rewards with more variety. Note to developers: seriously consider hiring a master negotiator to help you with this. You should be getting more stuff from your advertisers. More short term rewards- things a person could reasonably earn in about 6 weeks- will keep users coming back. Some of those offers that are just discounts aren’t attractive to a user like me. Overall I think the app is doing exactly what it promises now, and I believe the company that makes it is on the right track to make it better. Yes, this app is Recommended by me.

SICK TO MY STOMACH😤😤😤
You make me SICK!!!!! I open this stupid dumb app every freaking day for 2 years and you know what I was able to get with all those steps, blood and tears? Air!! I get freaking air, I walk 20,000 steps in 3 days and what’s my prize? Air! And then they have the nerve to offer a premium account 😂😭😮‍💨🤣🤣🤣🤣I paid for it because it was the only way I could get more sweat could be eventually you just stop getting them when you reach a certain amount. 2 million Sweatcoins and nothing to show for it pathetic!!!! I open this app again today and I started exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms this is the worst app in the history of the human existence and the spiritual one. At first I enjoyed this app because despite practically having nothing of value in the store I enjoyed a few premium pandora accounts and tidal accounts that’s literally the best thing I have ever gotten. You need to shut this app down until you my able to go to a thrift store or whatever non-profit organization you go to get your free cheap absolutely useless and meaningless items. If I had to choose between my gf having a child while she’ has sweat coin on her phone And saving another persons life a person who doesn’t have sweat coin I would force my girl to have a abortion so she won’t have to live with the pain of this app.

Amazing!
Sweatcoin is great! I’m on this app every day, and it proves to be a great motivator to get moving and be active! I love the concept of utilizing steps as a currency. Upon referring others friends to this app and them downloading it, I did note, however, that the layout of the app is different for some of them. For example, I am using this app on an iPhone 11, and one friend of mine runs it on an iPhone 7. His app has a “challenges” section where I suppose he can do challenges with those he’s connected with. He also has a feature where there is a leaderboard each week comparing him to his followers, where he can see who has taken the most steps for the week. I don’t have these features, and I would love to be able to enjoy them on the app. I was just wondering why these features are available on his phone but not mine, or if there is a setting or way to get these features on my app and I’m just not seeing it? Sweatcoin is great! So far I have gotten 5 people to download the app. I feel that if I were able to have the features that some of my friends have, my Sweatcoin experience would be even better!

SKETCH AS FREAK
EDIT: they will not let me delete my account with the same bogus reason they don’t let anyone rate the marketplace negatively, with a phony pop up to check my internet. that’s not just sketchy but low key illegal. plus, the whole crypto thing? yeah i’m glad im jumping ship. not hard feelings at first but do yourself a favor, go on a walk without your phone and enjoy not being in this hellhole. downloaded this way back, thinking i could maybe come back in ten years and be able to redeem a high prize. i don’t take my phone around with me a lot, so i wasn’t expecting much, and now I’m just gonna delete it no worries. the rewards are esoteric. no, i don’t need 10% off to some random health app. there are no actual things you get for free or close to free anymore. I thought I could do an auction later, but the thing is as everyone gets more coins, the bidding price goes up. there’s no way i can redeem anything if actual value! I don’t mind, and I’m not mad. you get what you pay for, and I paid nothing. I can’t expect to get free swag from a free app. However, I do not recommend paying for any subscription. The rewards, again, are useless to the vast majority of people and the auctions (the only things of value) are going to outpace you. Time to donate my measly 2k coins and peace out

Scammers
Sweat coin will intice you with a crazy idea of turning daily steps into money they get sponsors to give all the real little products and offers and they gain from that too but when it comes to your actuall collection of sweat coins it’s only worth using after years of continuously getting steps too get your worth from the app but before you get anywhere near a high number of coins where you can actually get your times worth they will purposely make people accounts defective it will stop receiving steps even with everything done well and if you try to do anything about it they purposely have a horrible customer service so it becomes a continuous gain no loss cycle for them they got a crypto coin before even having a single person you can talk to as customer service they will do anything to make you stop using the app when you are getting higher and higher amounts of coins and all the winners and buyers for the big stuff probably fake too because even every time I’ve ever tried to get one of the cheaper items from the shop you can’t ever actually get them it just throws you of course there app is not too good to be true it’s just if it was true everyone would of been fit already - 4-5 years saving trying and walking for nothing thank you Sweatcoin

Iffy
Ive been using this app for several years, but I still getting cheated of my steps constantly. I walk over 10,000 daily, unless I feel bad, Im lucky for it to give me 3,000 for that day and I pay more for double coins. Last week I walked almost 14,000 steps, but I only got 2,000 something on the app that day. Ive emailed several times and Im told they’re aware of the glitch and apologize, but do not offer to add those missed steps to my account. Edit since comment from Sweatcoin I’ve actually already done everything you stated, I did go to Faq on Sweatcoins first, which states exactly what you just said. I sent an email stating I did all of this, my reply was telling me to do all of that, my reply was I already did, the next reply was exactly telling me to do the same thing again, now Im told a 4th time. That did not work the first, second, or third time. My apps automatically update, I double check and the app is current. I plan on requesting a refund on what I paid and cancel my subscription, Im not paying $9.99 a month and not even get to reap the benefits when it doesn’t actually show Im walking over 10,000 steps a day. I have already stopped promoting the app and Im no longer going out of my way to try and earn, knowing Im not going to get the points anyway

Seems like a scam to get users
First off. You get paid to walk in credits that you can use on the app to get discounts or free shipping or donating money to causes. You never get real money. I downloaded the app for a bit of extra coin and the chance to donate to causes that deeply need the attention. So far I’ve had this app for almost a year, I walk every day and I’ve only made 300 credits, have the app open almost every day and haven’t spent any until today. Some of the offers to get “50% off at **insert random store name**” require 14,000 credits. A lot of these offers expire so the only way to be eligible for the things they advertise outside of the app is to pay real money to boost the amount of credits you can get walking... the only GOOD thing I will say is that I think that donating for causes is amazing but I wish they would have that more causes available than some dumb shopping discount. They rarely have time for these causes it seems because I noticed causes are only on there for a day or 2 before “expiring” but they will keep a discount for a pair of headphones for weeks? It just completely defeats the purpose of advertising “Getting paid to walk”. Save the space on your phone and don’t get this app. I’m throwing all my money into the recent causes and never thinking about this app again.

Crap Items -Never A Buy!
UPDATE- I changed my review to one star because i have not received my order, made months ago, and after i reached out to CS, I’ve heard nothing. It’s only $20 but I’ve learned my lesson. My daughter put me onto this app because I am a serious runner and walker. Every day I don’t use this app and I’m up to near $500 in a short time. My issue with this app has nothing to do with my earnings but with the items that I should be able to purchase with my earnings. They sell you with the idea of earning these dollars or coins to purchase things but you never are really purchasing something. Everything is a percentage off. I’m buying coupons. And the fact that I’m not able to purchase only blows Mia more when I see that the things that I do want are always sold out. What I would like to have is never available. Ever. If you have a lot of people purchasing, you should have more available. Especially if you’re always selling out. If not, then it’s set up and a scam to me. Lastly if I’m only able to get so much off, maybe if it’s worth it I’ll do it. But shipping is way too high. And I’ve already purchased one item and it hasn’t even shown up yet. It’s been over three weeks. No tracking information. Nothing. You have to do better.

Horrible customer service and scams
So I’ve been using this app for over a year and I’ve liked it up until I had a problem with an order. Apparently some of the things on marketplace that you can turn sweat coins in for and only pay shipping are scams. I purchased an Apple Watch band and it never came. I tried to contact the seller and no response. I tried to find the website, it’s gone now. I reached out to sweatcoin only to get a bot to answer and did not address my issue even the slightest. It was an obvious automated response email. I tried to reach out again only to get no response at all this time. Some of the products I’ve received have been okay and others are cheap items that’s you can probably find on wish. Cheap and from China. Definitely not worth the coins I put into it and the shipping I paid for it. When they use to offer sample packs from reputable companies, those were worth it! But unfortunately they do not offer those times of things in the marketplace anymore or rarely. I plan on trying to use up the rest of my sweat coins and then deleting this app and stopping my subscription. Buyer beware!

❗️MAJOR SECURITY ISSUE❗️
I understand that this a small team (this fact was mentioned in the help section of the app). But I've contacted the developer three times now about a very serious issue and to date, no one has responded back. Not even an auto-generated email saying 'hey, your feedback has been received, your ticket is in a que'. I'm literally logged into SOMEONE ELSE'S ACCOUNT. The only way this could have happened is that my phone number (which I haven't had for very long) was attached to someone else's account before. Since we don't create login credentials during setup, there's no way for me to sign out of this individual's account and for me to sign into my own. This is a MAJOR security issue. Absolutely nothing in the forums or the help section is going to help me resolve this issue; I need to talk to an actual person. If you have time to make an app and update it (shows last update 4 days ago), you've got to make time for your customers too. Use a CRM platform with a ticketing system, there's plenty to choose from. And one more thing... this is a big one and I probably won't use this app until they change this... allow users to create login credentials during setup so something like what I'm experiencing doesn't happen to someone else. People's phone numbers change sometimes.

Bad Conversion
My sister and I both have this app and for the same exact time we walked right next to each other at Carowinds. My total amount of steps says 9,892 but only 830 we’re counted as outdoor steps, therefore giving me just 0.78 sweat coins. My sister’s, however, total amount was 11,065 of steps, and 9,227 were counted as outdoor steps therefore earning 8.76 sweat coins. Where is the logic in that? We have been outside the entire day and walked the same amount but i did not get even 1 sweatcoin from today. You guys need to fix the bugs. As well as my sister tried to send me 17 sweat coins but it said it sent yet i never received them. This happens often, I get an average of 4,000-ish steps a day because i do a lot of walking outside as part of exercise or things at school but it never counts them. I think that people should still get coins and steps counted even if it IS indoors because at least they are actually walking? Why does it matter if it is inside or out? Please address this issue as soon as possible because this has been happening quite a bit and with my sister’s and my mom’s accounts too. Thank you in advance, i’d rather be able to have this app functioning well because i like the idea just it should be enforced better.

Wish I actually could get something
I went to purchase these air pods and it continually told me it was out of stock, after constantly reloading the app, still not able to purchase while it still said the air pods available. If there truly is nothing to be done, I’m just going to delete my account at this point and tell everyone what a waste this app really is. I’m active and would walk whether this existed or not. The reason I do this app is because I am low income and thought this would be a great way to have some small wins in the world where I’m stuck walking because of an accident. I have been using the app for over two years, and haven’t really spent any of the coins. What they offer in the store is mainly digital offers, donations, or things you get a partial discount on. You see a nice physical product for free that’s up for grabs? Nope. In reality, this will be just another pointless app where I fed in to it for years and now realize that it doesn’t do much but take up GB usage on my phone. There was a guarantee in the event a purchase was out of stock, so where is my $? Considering I have screenshots that I should have been able to use these points. One of the many many disappointments this app leads to. Don’t waste your time.

Hopeful
I don’t know how/If this app actually donates money we as people earn for walking, but I am hopeful it is doing what it says. Over the past year or so I’ve donated about 1k from this website to different charities this site gives us. And in my heart, I am 100% hopeful that this site keeps its word and gives these charities the money we are giving up. I am hopeful that the so called money I’ve donated, and we as people have donated, will actually be used for good for these people being affected, in a positive way. I hope the people in need actually receive help. I hope the organizations I’ve donated to actually receive it. All I want in this world is to do good, and for others to do the same. This current world we live in is misguided, I would love to see this world be put back in good and proper order. And I will continue to donate every penny I so call earn from this app to any and every charity/organization this app/site offers. And I pray and hope it does some real good in this world. All my prayers and love is being sent out to every person this world contains!!!

Lies - Total Scam
I have been slowly saving my sweat coins with the intention of using them for a cash payout. Originally 1,000 sweat coins could be used in exchange for 1,000 cash via PayPal. So I patiently have been letting Sweatcoin use my location. When I reach 700 SC the advertisement for 1,000 cash via PayPal disappeared from the marketplace. Annoyed I kept using the app anyway incase something else better came along but I began to notice that the prices of goods started getting higher and higher. Today I checked in on the app. and the 1,000 cash via PayPal was back! But this time I needed 19,999 SC to redeem it. It’s taken me over a year just to get to my roughly 750 coins. Do not let this app fool you. First off there’s nothing good in the marketplace that you already can’t find a deal for online. Second when you get close to something worth your SC they bump the price up on you to a cost that is almost unattainable. Clearly this app is selling its data and location information from its users and does not plan to reward anyone except themselves. I also want to add that I am an extremely active person often hiking over 5 miles a day on the weekends and walking or running 2-3 miles on the weekday. If it took me over a year to get as far as I did how long will it take the everyday person?

Cool concept, but...
I love the idea of an incentive based walking app, that’s great to promote a healthier society, but I’ve been looking at the rewards, and you really aren’t getting anything with the “sweatcoins” generated. Notice almost all of the daily rewards offered are free trials of an app or a membership of something, or a small discount of a product on a company. At this level, your sweatcoins are virtually valueless, considering most companies have these offers for new users as it is. If you look at the eye candy “marathon” rewards, you’ll see some actual things worthy of earning (iPhone X, 1,000 dollars in cash), but after some math, assuming you have the best subscription possible, which offers 600 sweatcoins a month at a charge of 30 sweatcoins a month, the quickest you could redeem that reward while getting your daily bonus every 3 days consistently would take nearly 3 years. That’s a bit ridiculous. If you like walking and feeling a minor pat on the back for it with useless currency, this is the app for you. But I will credit the app for looking clean and not an eye sore, and having a cool color scheme.

Needs Work!!!!
It’s so annoying because I can only get 5 sweet coins a day which at this rate will take me almost 2 years to get a $3,560 prize. You should make the maximum 10 sweat coins and the membership thing 20. Because won’t that make people exercise more because they’ll believe they actually have a chance to get a decent prize within a year? Also the prizes are sooooo expensive. Like even if you have the membership thing you still need to have the app for 5 years to get the $20,000 prize and that’s only if they walk 10k outside everyday for those 5 years. I understand you’re trying to get people to exercise and move more but it won’t work after people realize it’s a waste of time. My friend just deleted the app last year & he walks a lot so he got up to 3,000 sweat coins. He didn’t want his progress to be wasted so he transferred them to me. But to get any of the really cool prizes I can’t use the sweat coins that my friend transferred to me? It’s not like my friend is using that 3,000 so why can’t I just except it & use it for a 20,000 prize? It makes NO SENSE! Why have a transfer button if there’s a lot of prizes you can’t use the transferred sweat coins on.

Prizes out of reach, Pricing upside down
Membership pricing is upside down. The price per unit should go down with the larger size product you buy, giving shoppers an incentive to upgrade/switch past their current choice. You get 5 sweat coins a day (150/mo) for free. The shaker level gets you an additional 150/mo for a cost of .031 sweatcoins per sweatcoin enabled to earn. The quaker level only gets you an additional 300 sweatcoins per month potential, but costs 20 sweatcoins a month, or .066 sweatcoins per sweatcoins enabled to earn. Breaker level gets you 450/mo on top of the 150 free sweatcoins, but costs 30 sweatcoins - for again .066 sweatcoins per sweatcoins enabled to earn. The shaker level is actually the best priced option, if you stick in it for the long haul to earn sweatcoins, but it would take almost 5 years to earn enough to get the large prizes (10 sweatcoins a day + 1 free claim). So either the pricing strategy is upside down, or you are purposing pricing the products backward to limit the possible sweatcoins earned to prevent buyers from ever being able to claim the top prizes. 5 years seems like a big investment just to earn a $1000 PayPal gift card. I could use the time spent walking outside to instead get a part time job, with family, or anywhere in general that isn’t trying to rip me off.

Almost perfect!
Don’t get me wrong, any app that you can get stuff for free just by walking is great! Sweatcoin is great! But.. everything is always out of stock. Now The app converts steps into “Sweat coins”. These are then used as a currency and you can use the to get free stuff (like a $20 gift card) that you use the sweat coins to purchase. Some items you use your coins and just pay shipping. Some you get discounts on products. Some are completely free. There is a bidding section and if you don’t like anything at all, there is a donate option. There is also challenges where you walk so many steps (usually 250,000 steps in one month, 8k steps a day) you get entered in the a sweepstake. There are community challenges and those we all walk and Sweatcoin themselves donates(this month is 5 billion steps total and sweatcoin will donate to the elephant protection initiative) all that being said I recommend this app to EVERYONE! At the very least it can help you focus on getting more steps in your day! If the store wasnt sold out so fast on the good stuff I’d give the app 6/5 stars lol

Let’s be honest with eachother...
This app isn’t accidentally considering some of your real steps as faked steps and it does use the health app. It takes the steps from health app and uses and algorithm aka a long math equation that says that you are losing steps. It doesn’t verify real steps cause how can you. It’s an app. Apps don’t know the difference. It’s all bs to keep you using it and inviting people cause that’s the only real way to build up sweatcoins. The app is scamming everyone that uses it and says things like “turn of battery saver mode to lose less steps” cmon now. It’s literally telling you to let the app use more of your phones processing space or else you will lose sweatcoin steps. All the things it says it uses like gps and blah blah blah is also bs cause what would a gps do? Yeah it shows you moving but you could easily put your phone on an rc car and have the controller rubber banded going over books over and over to simulate a step and it should count. But guess what. It doesn’t, because the app is a scam into getting millions of people to download it and have businesses believe their product is going to end up on their store which it might but still wouldn’t be worth it in the end. Not only is this app a waste of time but it’s lying to you every second of your day.

Unrealistic rewards
They have some great looking rewards on here like a curved TV and 1,000$ cash back, as well as an iPhone X, but they each are 20,000 sweatcoins to purchase. And I did the math on that and even for you to be able to receive that on the highest paid subscription possible Walking enough to get 20$ a day AND daily bonuses everyday, it still would take you nearly THREE YEARS to get to that threshold. And for those of us who don’t want to pay for an app that is supposed to reward you with money, the whole reason I signed up was to earn money not spend it. They have little rewards like 10$ off your electric bill for 10 coins on the app which is much more fair. 1 coin to 1 real dollar is a good deal and still needs quite a lot of earnings to get the top reward. So my suggestion to the developers is make the top rewards a little more achievable, you can get those TVs and iPhone X for 1000$ or less, but charging 20x that amount in the app. Maybe 5000 coins in the app or even fewer closer to true value would get a lot more incentive for people to use the app because even though it’d still take a year or so for practically everyone it is a much more achievable and worth it goal at least in my eyes.
