Move over Play-to-Earn (P2E) as we now have Move-to-Earn (M2E) tokens and apps geared towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As cryptocurrency grows more popular, various blockchain-based projects relating to health and fitness lifestyles have been developed. Here are some of the early leaders in the Proof of Workout space.
Digital Fitness (DEFIT)
Digital Fitness (DEFIT) is a multi-chain cryptocurrency operating on the Ethereum and Polygon networks. DEFIT applies gamification to reward its community for staying fit and healthy by completing challenges, and receiving rewards by achieving its goals. DEFIT was first created by its parent company 360Wellness to become its native token. It offers exclusive benefits and rewards to stay fit and healthy and a credible alternative to fiat currency payments.
STEPN is built around an essential daily activity for most people – moving around. The project brings to life a functioning M2E concept. Users equip themselves with NFTs in the form of Sneakers. By walking, jogging, or running outdoors, users will earn game currency, which can either be used in-game, or cashed out for profit. There are two tokens: The GST (Green Satoshi Token) and the GMT (Stepn, a governance token). The two tokens have several utility functions, such as creating a new sneaker, unlocking certain gems to improve your shoe or simply for resale via traditional cryptocurrency channels.
Genopets is a Free-to-Play, Move-to-Earn NFT mobile game on Solana that makes it fun and rewarding to live an active lifestyle. Genopets’ Move-to-Earn NFT economy rewards your physical activity by translating the step data tracked by your smartphone or fitness wearable into in-game function. So every step you take in real life is a step in the Genoverse.
HLTH Token (HLTH)
The HTLH Token is a project created to reward (HLTH Run-To-Earn Crypto) active citizens in the crypto community. People can download the HTLH Run app, connect to Fit and earn the HTLH coin. Run, share, set goals and compete against friends to make your HLTH wallet grow. Earnings grow in real-time, and can cash out at cryptocurrency exchanges whenever.
Vitamin Coin (VITC)
Vitamin Coin (VITC) is focused on living healthily, both mentally and physically. VITC seeks to build and cultivate something that gives personal value. This is the central guiding principle of our project and community development.
Shift Token (SHIFT)
