The Technology Behind StepChain
StepChain has developed its own technological platform using blockchain technology enabling the use of such features and welcoming different applications, to empower their users with fitness rewards. StepChain’s fitness initiative from all around the world is shared by like-minded people to increase blockchain adaptation through social gamification to motivate people into action.
But how exactly do StepChain works?
Using the blockchain technology application, users are being rewarded with STEP (StepChain’s local cryptocurrency token) coins instantly through a digital smart contract that is EASY, RELIABLE and SECURE.
StepChain counts your steps but most importantly, rewards users based on the data extracted from the pedometer and phone accelerometer that matches your steps. Thanks to our technology, steps can be exchanged for goods and services from the fitness and sports industry with specific discounts and can also be used to make charitable donations among other features and important uses.
To understand clearly, let’s discuss the StepChain app features, but first, you need to install the StepChain Fitness App to your mobile. Don’t forget to link the app with either Google fit or Apple Health.
