With the worldwide phenomenon that Sweatcoin is on the verge of becoming (or by some estimations has already become) a few similar apps have be brought to our attention. We haven't done much digging to determine if one of these players was being developed or launched before Sweatcoin. In this article we will give short reviews and information on a few of these similar apps including BitWalk (Formally BitWalking), Cash for Steps and Step Bet (Created by WayBetter, Inc. makers of Diet Bet, SweatBet and Run Bet).
First we will answer the question you want to ask. Can you Install and Use Sweatcoin while using one of these similar "pay to walk" apps?
Yes, You can run Sweatcoin and similar apps on your phone. We went a step further and installed all of the apps in this article and the Fitbit App. There was definitely a noticeable difference in battery life. This was not surprising considering we had 5 apps accessing the iPhones pedometer and GPS in addition to all the apps I normally have installed on my phone. We ran these apps on an iPhone 6S for 2 weeks. During that time I did not have any crashes or shutdowns. All of the apps seem to function as they were developed to perform.
BitWalk - Not Available on the App store. It appears BitWalking had been launched and for some reason removed from the app store. We found some articles but nothing that spoke to why the app was no longer available. It appears they are relaunching as BitWalk and accepting email addresses on their website to be a Beta users or be informed when it becomes available again.
Cash For Steps - Every Step gets counted with Cash for Steps but there is a large element of luck involved in earning any money from the Cash for Steps App. You receive points for all steps and various Social Sharing tasks. 5 of the 50 Top point earners each day are randomly chosen to win a dollar. Yep.. One Dollar if you are one of five chosen from the 50 most active. No value for my time there but interesting concept none the less. Sticking with Sweatcoin. Another factor in keeping SWC on the top of our list is the functionality on the Apple Watch.
Step Bet - Waybetter Inc. has created an interesting group of apps that allow users to pool money for challenges and payout to the participants that complete the established goals. Goals are set based on past performance. Step Bet algorithm will determine your goals. Goals for each game participant are individualized. Most games are $40 but can go up to a few hundred. Private games can be more or as little as $30 per player. All players that complete their goals get at least their initial bet back. In most cases people do not complete thier assigned workout. That money goes in to the winners pool. If you create a game and it fills, your entrance fee is free but again the payoff probably isn't there. Maybe just for fun.. we'll sponsor a pool with out members.
We have written about some of the other "pat to walk" app competitors of Sweatcoin. One that was just brought to our attention is Charity Miles. Surprisingly it appeared in multiple retweets and social media posts from the official Sweatcoin accounts. Sweatco has been sponsoring users of Charity Miles, helping individuals raise money for more than 40 not-for-profits that receive donations based on steps walk, run or miles rode on bicycle. We have not done a deep dive in to Charity Miles but we love the concept and are super excited that they are working with Sweatcoin. You can now continue to earn for walking and basically double the value of those steps through donations through Charity Miles. Pretty Awesome!! Check it out!
We're hoping that by the time you read this article a partnership has already been announced. Recently a Sweatcoin user suggested that Sweatco partner with a movement, Yes Theory and a brand, Seek Discomfort. The success Yes Theory has had on Instagram is the perfect partnership with the Sweatcoin App. The founders of Yes Theory have launched Seek Discomfort, a clothing brand that aligns with the movements ideals. The 3 way combination would be very powerful. We are looking for folks (at the request of the Sweatco team) to reach out to Yes Theory and introduce them to Sweatcoin through Instagram or Twitter.

Just read on Quora Sweatcoin:
“I don’t think anybody will care about how much sweat you’ve dripped and pounds you lost, but you.”
Speak to anyone in the Health Insurance Industry, Government or Business and ask them if “they care” or “If there is value” in a healthier work force.
Any insurance company would gladly reduce rates if their customers walked 10,000 steps a day. Why not a system that rewards healthier (and ultimately more productive) employees.
With 11,000,000 installs (as of Aug. 1, 2018) and processing more transactions than Bitcoin on a daily basis, Sweatcoin is in a great position for an ICO.
With the companies 5% Sweatcoin commission on all steps, they are perfectly aligned with users.
When they set an initial Sweatcoin Exchange rate on Blockchain… You will see some
If I’m wrong.. I walked more and maybe got a bit healthier.
If I’m right.. My cost basis of FREE is going to make me look like I knew something. Oh.. and a ton of cash
Around the Sweatcoin Club community more and more of the conversations have gone to blockchain. We talk about the Sweatcoin to USD exchange rate. The potential for the coming Sweatcoin ICO. Often we lose sight of the most powerful feature of the app. It motivates people to get outside and exercise. There is huge value to our individual health and ultimately an impact on the health economy. There is real value in motivating people to walk.
If you want to really understand the vision and potential for Sweatcoin, set aside 88 minutes and listen to this incredible interview by StartupMicrodose. This is interview inspired us to go beyond users of the app and work to support the companies mission by creating Sweatcoin Club.

The Sweatcoin Debate: Does Sweatcoin work indoors? Treadmill or Outside only?
After months as the #1 App in the Fitness and Exercise category in the UK and US, Sweatco. announced the arrival of Sweatcoin in Canada. Where do we see the app made available next? The logical move would seem to be Australia. My guess is that the sweatcoin app will take approximately 3 months to hit the top spot for free apps in Canada. Once that occurs, we should see Sweatcoin Australia launch.
