Stack Sats With sMiles

I am always looking out for ways to earn a few extra satoshis on the side; Bitcoin bought is sweet, but Bitcoin earned is always a lot sweeter. I’ve tried using several fitness apps that pay you in crypto, and so far, I don’t really see a clear leader. They all pretty gimmicky, and to be honest, their tokenomics aren’t that great many of their coins aren’t worth much, nor have a deep enough market for you to sell or get anything from it.

I think trying to tokenise everything and maintain your own token was a novel idea, but in practice, it’s a pretty poor experience for the end-user, and we can see that by the fact that very few of these apps have really taken off.

The entire point of these apps is to reward you with value, and while some of this value can be seen on paper, very little of it can be accessed.

This is why I was pretty stoked to discover sMiles, an app that pays you directly in Bitcoin and makes use of the lightning network.

We all know how much Bitcoin is worth; it’s the deepest, most liquid crypto, so why wouldn’t I want to earn it? I can exchange it with a range of exchanges or use it in different wallets. That means setting up is far easier, and I don’t have to create a new account with a certain exchange; Bitcoin is Bitcoin.

My experience with sMiles

The app validates your steps each day and provides you with some sats depending on your performance.

You can also earn sats with their daily wheel spin game, and there’s also a chess game you can play to earn some sats. The app still looks like it’s in its formative stages and looks to be releasing an in-app store and more features to come.
