The blockchain startup behind Sweatcoin boasts of a 5 million users database with over 2 million active users.

There’s a free and a paid version for the app. In the free version, you’re limited at the number of Sweatcoins you can earn each day to just five. In the paid version, you can aim to workout for a Fitbit.

In a series of venture financing, the blockchain startup has raised about $5.7 million and intends to use these funds to expand the company to other countries of the world. Sweatcoin founders have an ambitious dream where you could one day pay for tax with your (literally) hard-earned Sweatcoin and of course, trade it as any other crypto.
