Playing sports has become, for some of us, a real torture. We spend the day going from top to bottom Instagram accounts in search of a solid motivation that encourages us to sign up for this healthy life and, although we find several, take too little time to fade.
But nobody worries, because if there is something left over in life to do things are reasons and Sweatcoin has managed to find one that, seems stimulating. Collect and receive prizes for walking. But not everything is as beautiful as it seems. Nobody will be able to get rich thanks to this app, which also requests a large amount of personal data from users. Would you be willing to put your privacy at stake for some virtual money?
ARE YOUR STEPS WORTH GOLD? OR IS IT YOUR DATA?
After becoming the most downloaded health and fitness app in the US, Germany and the United Kingdom, Sweatcoin has landed in india with the intention of inviting users to go outside. The app is available for both Android and iOS.
The thing has a trick and do not think that just carrying your mobile while doing housework or visiting a clothing store is enough. Sweatcoin only works outdoors (for what it has to give us fresh air) so you will have to activate the GPS so that it can identify your route and reward you properly. Here we get the first alarm about the use that can be made of our geolocation.
NOT ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD
SUBSCRIPTION MARKS EARNINGS
Daily earnings are limited by the type of subscription you have. To start the journey (and never better) in this app, you will have available a free mode called Move that will allow you to earn a maximum of 150 sweatcoins per month. If this mode falls short, you can select Shaker modes with 300 sweatcoins per month, Quaker with 450 or Breaker with 600. Soon a “supermode” called Trouble Maker will be created whose earnings have not yet been stipulated.
AND HOW DO I GET PAID?
When you have already collected a considerable amount in virtual currencies, you will be offered several possibilities. One of them is to redeem your sweatcoins for prizes that change depending on availability. If what you like is cash, you will have to resort to the well-known Paypal platform . Realistically, we must recognize that no one will get rich thanks to his steps and that the intrusion on the personal information of the users is not convincing at all. Maybe it’s better to keep looking for reasons to join this fitness life.
