sMiles app rewards you with Bitcoin if you perform physical activities

With sMiles, a new app from the founder of cross-platform messenger IM+, anyone can earn Bitcoin for simple everyday activities such as walking, biking, and playing games.

sMiles by a healthcare startup called StandApp runs on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network and aims to promote the mass adoption of Bitcoin while making people healthier, wealthier, and happier.

sMiles, which stands for sats (Satoshis) & miles, accumulates crypto based on the activities performed by the user. The crypto may then be transferred to any external Lightning-wallet.

sMiles will use the users’ device’s GPS to measure distances they have traveled and, in this way, calculate their earnings.

“Besides the end-user app, we also have a powerful scalable Lightning backend that we want to offer to app partners who are interested in micro-incentives for their users,” told Igor Berezovsky, the project’s lead and co-founder as well as the CEO of Shape—the company behind one of the earlier instant messaging apps IM+.
According to Berezovsky, users will earn sats for driving, too, although not as much since the creators want to promote a healthy lifestyle. Besides, upon downloading the app, users will get Bitcoin for simply allowing the app to access location, notifications, and other functions.

Berezovsky also said there will be no need to register, except when a user wants to make a withdrawal of more than 10,000 Satoshis, as the firm is particularly committed to the privacy of its users.

sMiles is funded by family and friends, with no institutional funding, but the startup already plans to work with various partners and is currently in talks with several game providers who are interested in sMiles backend.

The app is currently in public beta and will be available for both iOS and Android operating systems as well as Apple Watch in near future.
