Moonwalk: The Crypto-Based Fitness App That Makes Getting Fit More Fun and Competitive

An innovative new app called Moonwalk is changing the game when it comes to fitness goals and accountability. This early-stage app allows users to boost the stakes for their fitness goals by contributing cryptocurrencies to join a challenge. If users fail to meet their daily step goal, they must surrender money to a prize pool shared by the other participants.

Based in Salt Lake City, Moonwalk is a crypto-based fitness game that combines financial incentives with accountability to help users stay on track with their fitness goals. The app was recently tested by a group of participants at a coworking space in Salt Lake City, where they were among the first outside testers of the platform.

Participants in the Moonwalk challenge were required to walk a certain number of steps each day and contribute a buy-in of the USDC stablecoin. If they failed to meet their daily step goal, they would surrender their contribution to the prize pool. At the end of the challenge, those who met their daily goal would split the prize pool.

The app works by linking on-chain accounts with health profiles that source step-counting data from iPhones and Androids. Every few minutes, the app pulls step data from Google Fit to update the game’s leaderboard. Participants have full control of their original deposits as long as they meet their daily step goal.

Moonwalk’s founder, KW, has ambitious plans to expand the app beyond step-counting and into other areas of fitness. For now, the app is focused on incentivizing positive behavior change through step goals. Participants in the Moonwalk challenge logged tens of thousands of steps over the course of three days, with one participant winning a prize of $100.

Overall, participants found the Moonwalk app to be a fun and engaging way to stay motivated and competitive with their fitness goals. The app’s unique combination of financial incentives and accountability has proven to be effective in helping users stay on track with their fitness goals. With plans to expand into other areas of fitness, Moonwalk is poised to revolutionize the way people approach their health and wellness goals.
