We at SweatCo are creating a digital currency backed by physical movement. We have started with a fitness app that converts steps into a virtually currency ("sweatcoins") and has an internal marketplace that allows user to buy real goods and services with their sweatcoins.
Currently we have around 10M downloads of our app with around 3M logging into the app weekly and more than 300k sweatcoin transactions processed monthly with peak loads achieving 300 trx/sec.
The vision for Sweatcoin is to become a global, nation-state independent cryptocurrency to facilitate value exchange between users (including user-to-user) and vendors. We have raised around 6M USD from VC investors like Greylock Capital, Goodwater Capital, etc. to execute that vision.
