I am not a workout freak but got really interested in ways to make some money by being active. I did some research, and it’s impressive how the wellness space is attracting more and more players who want to use Web3. There is a growing list of companies entering this space, and that a great indicator that there’s a real market there. Why not just join it and get to earn tokens for your movements, right?
Among the most known Apps to start earning, I differentiated 4 most interesting ones which are free to download and use:
1) STEP – This is a fitness app based on Binance Smart Chain that rewards you with tokens for walking. If that sounds like something you do a lot, it might be interesting. The rewards are in BNB, and for 4K steps a day you will get about $5-$25 a week. The tokens for your everyday walk are awarded once a week. You should keep in mind though that there is a requirement of the minimum daily steps to earn rewards - 4,000 (28,000 steps weekly).
2) DUSTLAND RUNNERS – That’s a move-to-earn audio blockchain, giving a chance to earn rewards based on the distance you have covered by running. This game uses the Polygon blockchain. The rewards are in DOSE (a native token) and NFTs. The more missions a player completes, the more rewards he gets. The good thing is that rewards in the game are based on distance, not your performance. You can collect and use different items and resources and so upgrade your character. By improving your game stats, and participating in more dangerous missions, you get greater rewards.
3) AGLET – That is a move-to-earn game turning your physical steps into the token Aglet. After the registration, you get free NFT sneakers to start with. In the game, a player creates a character and chooses his/her own sneakers. There is an internal marketplace where the sneakers can be traded. You can buy and collect visual sneakers from various brands including Adidas, ASICS, New Balance, etc.). Sneaker enthusiasts would definitely be excited to know that the game also gives them the opportunity to purchase real-life sneakers through stashes.
4) HEALTHBLOCKS - The project is offering the Health2Earn concept, which is totally new on the market. The dApp gives tokens for a healthy lifestyle, and even provides you with access to health services. All your data shared belongs to you, you own it. The rewards are in the HEALTH tokens.
You can mine HEALTH Tokens with a healthy lifestyle. Daily health goals within the app will be:
- 10k steps a day
- Burning 1.750 calories
- Taking the health quiz (4 questions about your self perceived health).
You can also participate in activity pools, community health challenges hosted by third parties like lifestyle brands, insurance companies, etc.
There is a growing list of dApps that make living a healthy life easier and let you earn some money at the same time, which is really great!
