Sweatcoin, the Move2Earn project with zero entry costs — completely free!

STEPN and Step App both made huge first impressions in the crypto community. However, they both died down slowly as new users came to find the exorbitant entry costs.

Indeed, both apps require you to buy a sneaker NFT in order to start earning for walking or movinga — a very expensive NFT, if I may add.

Enter Sweatcoin, another Move2Earn app with a different approach — spoiler alert, it’s free!

In this article, I’ll tell you how to get started with Sweatcoin and earn crypto for walking at zero entry costs.

What is Sweatcoin?

Sweatcoin is a free app that rewards your daily steps with their own native currency. You can spend sweatcoins in-app on products, vouchers, and benefits, donate them to charity, or convert into SWEAT tokens, its sister cryptocurrency.

You don’t have to spend any money to get started, you don’t have to buy NFTs, nor pay any fees. You just download the app and walk around.

Now, let’s dive into this extremely easy 4-step guide to get started with Sweatcoin and earn money for merely walking around, shall we?

Donwload the Sweatcoin app

The idea is pretty simple, you download the app, log in, and start walking with your device with you. The app will automatically count your steps and send you daily rewards in sweatcoins — 1 coin per every 1,000 steps.

So, the first step is to install Sweatcoin on your mobile device. You can download the Sweatcoin app here:

After you dowload and install the Sweatcoin app, you’ll have to create an account and log in. Don’t worry, it’s extremely easy!

Opt in crypto earning

Once you’re logged into your brand new Sweatcoin app, you need to opt in for crypto rewards. This can be done within the app by simply tapping a button.

To do this, tap on the wallet icon on the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. There, you’ll find a box with the SWEAT token logo and a button that says “Sign up to earn crypto” or something similar.

By tapping it, you’ll be able to sign up to be rewarded with crypto for every step you take. Awesome, right?

But wait, that’s not all. You’ll need a wallet to store your hard-earned SWEAT tokens. Here’s how to get it.

Downloading the SWEAT Wallet

Just like you donwloaded the Sweatcoin app, you only need to find the SWEAT Wallet in AppStore or PlayStore, download it, and install it on your mobile device.

This should happen automatically once you sign up for crypto rewards on your Sweatcoin app, but in case it doesn’t, here’s the download link for you:

When it’s ready to go, simply log in to the app. A message will pop up asking you to log in.

Here, make sure you choose the “Log in with Sweatcoin” option. This will take you to the Sweatcoin app from which you can authorize access to the wallet, linking your Sweatcoin step counter with the wallet automatically.

As a result, your wallet will link to your Sweatcoin app, allowing you to receive your SWEAT tokens directly in the wallet and ready to use.

Start walking!

That’s it, you’re good to go! Just put your phone in your pocket, go outside, and start walking. The Sweatcoin app will count every step you make and, at the end of the day, will pay you 1 SWEAT for every 1,000 steps you take.

Bear in mind that you will only earn SWEAT for the first 5,000 steps of each day. For all further steps, you’ll be rewarded with sweatcoins, which can only be spent in-app and cannot be traded.

In another article, I explored and analyzed SWEAT’s tokenomics and overall fundamentals. If you’re interested, you can read it here:


Sweatcoin takes another shot at the Move2Earn concept, but with a different approach.

It involves zero starting costs, unlike many of its competitors, and has a long term plan for sustainability and functionality.

That said, only time will tell if it works, or if it inflation ends up killing it just like it did everything else. The good news is, if it does, you won’t have lost anything.
