Hi Product Hunters, this is Danil from Sweatcoin. We're so excited to get this out to you! Today we are launching our iOS app Sweatcoin in the US. Sweatcoin converts your steps into currency. Spend earned sweatcoins on goods, services and experiences with our partners, donate to charity or exchange them with your friends and family for whatever you fancy. The fitter and healthier you become the wealthier you get. Movement has value! Check it out! Apple will need some time to make Sweatcoin available via search. However right now It's available in the app store via this link: https://swc.app.link/producthunt Tell us what you think of app.

@perushev Any way users can download from the app store without giving their number? (personally dont like giving it out to any site)
Danil PerushevMaker@perushev · Co-founder, Sweatcoin
@bentossell hey! we use mobile number to identify the user inside the app to avoid gaming the system (we are a currency and you cannot cheat a currency unless…!)
Ben TossellPro@bentossell · newCo
@perushev maybe it would be worth explaining why you require a phone number then. Otherwise it just seems like extra friction while lots of other companies are trying to do the same thing (which puts me off)

@bentossell Hey, I need to be sure that I understand the issue. So, you don't like that we use your phone number in our app to identify you as a user? Or you don't like the fact that when you click on this link (https://swc.app.link/producthunt) we ask for you number?
Ben TossellPro@bentossell · newCo
@perushev Don't like entering my phone number before being able to download the app... haha maybe we both got confused!

I'm an early Sweatcoin user in the UK. The app runs in the background and it works amazingly well & does not drain the battery, unlike Moves. All you need to do is occasionally check your Sweatcoin balance and what is in the Sweatcoin store. Over the year I bought things like Shoes, Tea subscription, chocolate all using Sweatcoins💦💰

The app that will know where you are and when you are there. Don't commit a crime without turning off location services. Very interesting app though! :)

@joshenglish hey! I would even say: "Please don't commit a crime at all"! regardless the apps you use. Try it out and tell us what you think!

Okay, this might MAKE the app "You can also donate your Sweatcoins to some of our amazing partnering charities, making for an easy way to help others around the world." Walkathon 24/7.

Nice one guys, great to see the expansion. Played with it on one of your colleague's devices. Coming to ANdroid anytime soon? Spread love to the A-Team.

@tjmorganuk Thank you! Android app is in the roadmap. Will definitely roll it out by the end of the year.
