As crypto remains the hottest topic of the year, we can see it advancing towards various new industries. It continues exploring its adventures and has successfully made into the health industry. No more fancy gadgets that cost YOU, it is time to make some Franklins for all the calories you burn!
We had previously seen how it has helped the health trials by collecting patient data and picking out best test samples. It appears like its progressing towards recording activity and performance of its users. It’s a FitBit version of a blockchain – but only better!
The cryptocurrencies and blockchains which have crossed our paths till now are:
It has re-defined the sports industry by building the first blockchain that is a marketplace for sports driven and metabolic data. It started with its own analytical devices and will further open its gates for third party tracking and fitness devices.
It’s a fitness ecosystem that motivates its users with tokens. The built-in rewards mechanism engages people in such a way that it creates an incentive for its users through the use of PT tokens. Its powered by smart contracts – and your sweat!
Have you always been demotivated by working out because the results didn’t show up soon? Are you one of those that eat salad and start checking for abs? Well, it is not really our fault. People do get restless and demotivated but what if… WHAT IF, I tell you that now you can get paid for working out. Even if you don’t see your body getting leaner at least you are sweating for Fiftys, which is an internal currency of this through which you can purchase various offers.
This blockchain aspires to build a healthy society by monetization of user generated data via blockchain. It then uses this data to reward its users by offering incentives and enhancing health insurance to inspire a healthy society.
Although this one’s a little different; its neither a crypto or a blockchain but it is worth mentioning; Sweatcoin. It converts physical activity in form of steps into their own currency, which can again be used for various rewards that the start-up offers.
Hopefully, after reading this, you’d get your lazy ass off the couch and get out more. Blockchain and cryptos are trying their best to motivate you and if this isn’t enough then I don’t think anything ever will be. This is your chance to go for a run that you had been planning to do for so long but keep delaying it. However, make sure you join these start-ups so you can benefit from it while you are busy sweating your a** off. In the meanwhile, I’d go grab myself a pizza. Just kidding. I’m gonna RUN to the nearest pizza place so at least get a reward for it; sure sounds like best of both worlds!
