Everyone on your team gets a pedometer so you can hang out together during your lunch break.

The world is struggling with a large number of obese patients, with the United States leading the way in this unhealthy trend. They blatantly burn a record number of calories and a few years later suffer from health problems barely covered by their health insurance. It seems obvious that we are going to live healthier, but certainly a pandemic has not stimulated us to exercise more. And the gym? With high inflation, this is not feasible for many people. Fortunately, there are many alternatives. Now you no longer pay to live healthy, they pay you for this. Good Life!
Standing aimlessly on a treadmill hoping to burn off all that excess fat? Bored. And the manufacturers of various game consoles know this too. The use of gamification stimulates the process. Therefore, it is used in almost all daily tasks. Do you have an iWatch and therefore move a little more every day to achieve your fitness goals?

Or were you one of those who preferred to imitate all kinds of dances to score as many points as possible? No useless TikTok dances to get as many views as possible, but earn points to dominate the leaderboard! Now, these forms of sport are of course minimal and will not solve the obesity problem, but it is better than sitting on the couch with a bag of chips. But still, by earning points and completing levels, you are more motivated as a player to continue† You need to find out what happens when you get paid for it.
Are you from a later generation? Then you certainly know Pokémon GO. Literally the entire world was on fire and everywhere you looked young and old obsessively looking at their phones for rare Pokémon. The chance of a Pokémon suddenly sitting next to you was small, so you had to go outside. Shoes for walking or running and an hour on the streets. Go catch Pokemon. The more the better. For what purpose? Just be the best.
But while you were so busy with the game, you are working on your health. And we did it en masse. With millions of users and a turnover of no less than 3,000 million dollars in 2020, we all go hunting together. And while everyone finds sports boring, we fight for better health in a fun way with millions at the same time. For many it was so addictive that the physical was no longer a problem, half an hour more. Okay, another half hour, okay? Win win. Thank goodness for Augmented Reality (AR).
The South African company AIA Vitality also saw the future of this technology. As a health institution, physical health is central to them and they provide various tools for everyone to be healthy. How? On their own health program where members receive points for their physical activity. These points can be exchanged for purchase vouchers, among other things. And the real fighters can even get their reduce the insurance premium when they have enough points† The benefit to AIA Vitality itself? Healthier users, in turn, lead to fewer insurance claims. smart thinking!
Blockchain games seem to be popping up like mushrooms. From the popular DeFi Kingdoms to the new Evoverses game. It just shows how big the gaming industry is and how much money is involved in it. Move-to-earn is the next development where it rewards users for getting enough exercise. And these are successfully received. Let’s briefly discuss some protocols in this blog.
STEPN is a web3.0 fitness app built on the Solana blockchain that pays you to walk or run† Yes, that’s right, there are no expensive fitness subscriptions, but you do get money to work out. They themselves speak of a combination of SocialFi and GameFi. And it is not just any game, the creators have a clear objective:
- They hope to help millions of people in this way. motivate you to live a healthier life† Investing in your health is not a goal for many, but money, on the other hand, is a motivation for many people to do things.
- This is an ideal way to introduce people to the developments and possibilities of web3.0
- also good for climate change: As users are encouraged to walk and/or run, they will use the car less, which is better for the environment.
Before you can hit the road unsafely, you need some good running shoes. STEPN has its own NFT marketplace with numerous slippers. Each sneaker is a non-fungible token that you need in the game. Each NFT shoe is unique and has different characteristics. You can choose walking shoes, running shoes or sports shoes. Each of these also has a different uniqueness: going from common to legendary. The advantage? The more unique your shoe is, the more rewards you will receive. At the time of writing, you have the cheapest sneakers for, wait, around $1,200.
You will receive enough instructions with each shoe. For example, in the example below, you must walk/walk between 4 and 10 km per hour to get rewards. With a simple interface like other running apps like Runkeeper, everyone is out of the box.
Genopets is said to be the first move-to-win NFT game. Like Stepn, it is based on the Solana blockchain. Are these beastly NFTs familiar to you? Not by chance. The team was inspired by the success of the popular game Pokémon Go. This in combination with the Tamagotchi’s from the 90s. Match made in heaven. Each Geopet is unique and is yours”spirit animal nft coded with your personality†
At the beginning you will receive a short questionnaire in which you can choose between 2 options. Based on these results, you get a unique Genopet. It’s not just any game but you NFT evolves with you. Based on in-game decisions, it changes as you like your NFT. How does it work? Connect your app to Strava or Fitbit or other popular tracking apps and start Enter fitness challenges and earn free crypto†
This can be a number of steps per day, but also walking in a certain area near you. he he Genopet also gets stronger, funnier, and more unique as you get more points.† In the future, there may also be a connection to Apple Watch. In addition to these challenges, you can challenge other Genopets owners to a mini duel. The winner of this duel will once again receive free crypto.
this game therefore, it very clearly combines the principle of playing to win with that of moving to win. One reinforces the other. If you don’t participate in your daily fitness challenges, your Genopets won’t progress or get stronger in the game. Consequence? You will find it more difficult to compete against other Genopets in the game. In this way, each user is motivated to be physically active.
Connection physical world and NFTs
Blockchain and crypto remain an abstraction for many. Complicated codes and blockchain layers? It is often difficult to understand something when we do not see its uses. With the development of playing to win, the world of cryptocurrencies has welcomed many new users, especially players who see a new revenue model in these blockchain games. With the With the arrival of Move-to-Earn, we hope that people are now greatly motivated to move and work on their health.† If money can’t motivate you, what can?
This also makes the boundary between the NFT world and the physical world very tangible. Where previously NFTs were worthless digital images that sometimes trade for millions of dollars, these shoes are now a valuable NFT with very obvious utility in the physical world. This can also remove a barrier to the unknown world of cryptocurrencies for novice investors. We are seeing more and more interfaces between the physical world and the world of NFTs† The best of both worlds.
Video games often have negative connotations. Young people who waste their days, are not very productive and, above all, have few ambitions. But to what extent is this image correct? With the advent and development of games to win, this negative image has already changed. Blockchain game players have one goal, which is make as much money as possible† What about players from low-wage countries? They see their future change in days when they earn a monthly salary playing these games.
But more needs to be done. Global warming continues and more and more people suffer from health problems and obesity. We now know that cryptocurrencies and blockchain are the future, so why not join forces? Thanks to the integration of play-to-earn and the use of gamification, the development of move-to-earn is another important step in the adoption of cryptocurrencies.† Move actively, work on your health and be richly rewarded for it. What a wonderful life!
