Sweat Economy, the innovative Web3 ecosystem that incentivizes physical activity, has expanded its reach into the United States and eight additional countries, including the Bahamas, Barbados, Botswana, Ghana, Jamaica, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, and Uganda.
This expansion opens the doors for millions of users to start tokenizing their physical activity, contributing to the growing global movement economy.
The Power of Community Support
Sweat Economy’s entry into these new markets is a result of the overwhelming support from its dedicated community.
In a historic vote, over 380,000 users actively participated by choosing to burn and reallocate idle tokens to support the launch effort.
This strong community backing is a testament to the platform’s mission of encouraging physical activity through innovative incentives.
Building on Sweatcoin’s Success
Sweat Economy is building on the success of the wildly popular Sweatcoin app, which made its debut in 2015.
Known for pioneering the “move-to-earn” concept, the Sweatcoin app has attracted over 140 million registered users and earned the distinction of being the most downloaded health app in more than 60 countries.
Now, Sweat Economy represents the next evolution of this success story, aiming to accelerate the mainstream adoption of Web3 technologies at the intersection of tokenization, health, and cryptocurrency.

A Unique Approach to Movement
What sets Sweat Economy apart is its innovative approach to reward physical activity through a unique passive reward system.
By harnessing the Sweatcoin application, users can validate their movements, effectively tokenizing their physical activity.
As a reward, users can mint $SWEAT, a token built on the NEAR Protocol. This places Sweat Economy as one of the largest Web3 on-ramps, with millions of existing Sweatcoin users transitioning to the Sweat Wallet.
The choice of the NEAR Protocol is strategic, given its secure and scalable sharding infrastructure, poised to onboard millions into the burgeoning Web3 movement economy.
Multi-Faceted Use of $SWEAT
Once within the Sweat Wallet ecosystem, users can mint $SWEAT through various physical activities.
Accumulated $SWEAT tokens can be used in several ways, from depositing them into “Growth Jars” for savings and multiplication to unlocking exclusive rewards within the ecosystem.
Users can also engage in the free-to-play Sweat Hero NFT game, providing additional opportunities to earn $SWEAT.
For added convenience, users have the option to purchase $SWEAT in-app using the MoonPay fiat on-ramp.
The platform’s adoption of $SWEAT has already made it the 9th most held and the 13th most actively used token in the world before this expansion, establishing its deflationary status.
Oleg Fomenko, co-founder of Sweat Economy, expressed his excitement about expanding into the United States and other markets.
He stated, “We aim to inspire a new wave of physical activity and incentivize individuals to lead healthier lives while paving the way for the next billion users looking to participate in the movement economy.”
