Play-to-Earn vs. Move-to-Earn explained
Examples of move-to-earn games are STEPN, Sweatcoin and MetaGym.
As the move-to-earn industry is getting bigger and hotter, it’s time to make you familiar with some of the M2E games. The most well-known example of M2E is probably the Solana-based move-to-earn project STEPN (GMT).
STEPN is a Web3 lifestyle app with integrated SocialFi and GameFi functions. The project is born to make users healthier and wealthier by putting each foot in front of the other. Founders are really aiming to be the number one M2E project in the Metaverse space and even won the Solana Ignition Hackathon in 2021.
If users want to start using STEPN, they need to invest in a pair of STEPN sneakers by buying an NFT. When you accomplish the first step, it’s important to move and track your steps with GPS. The earned in-game valuta can be exchanged for crypto later on.
The second project is kinda similar to the first one: Sweatcoin. Users earn their coins by running, walking and most of all: sweating. Every 1000 steps you take will get you a reward in SWEAT, the platform’s native currency.
With their slogan, “It pays to walk,” they want to decrease the billions of dollars of cost in healthcare by making people healthier. Users can exchange the rewards they earned for products, make a donation or convert them into a currency of their choice.
The last example of the M2E projects is MetaGym. MetaGym is easy to join with the possibility to earn money while moving your body through an app and even a smart-watch application. Users get to utilize GameFi, FitFi and SleepFi functions while making themselves sweat to earn MetaGym Coin (MGCN), the platform’s own token.
MetaGym wants to help the world become a healthier place, but they’re not afraid to give you the chance to earn some money while doing it. Users earn cryptocurrencies while completing tasks like finishing cardio or strength training or getting some satisfying sleep.
