Running is one of the best and easiest physical activities you can get into to get fit and healthy because of its many health benefits. But what if I tell you that there’s now an app for running that besides helping you keep fit, you can also earn from. You read that right! This is exactly what the up-and-coming play-to-earn Web3/blockchain-based lifestyle app STEPN offers. It leverages the power of blockchain technology to let players earn while they run or move.

STEPNLaunched last December 2021, STEPN incorporates blockchain technology for the decentralized transfer of information and assets. It makes it possible for the game to use non-fungible tokens or NFTs, which are unique tokens that cannot be replicated. For many blockchain-based play-to-earn games such as STEPN, NFTs act as tokens that can later be traded for cryptocurrencies.

But what if I tell you that there’s now an app for running that besides helping you keep fit, you can also earn from. You read that right! This is exactly what the up-and-coming play-to-earn Web3/blockchain-based lifestyle app STEPN offers. Among the others were Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Graeme McDowell, Phil Mickelson, Ian Poulter, and Lee Westwood. It leverages the power of blockchain technology to let players earn while they run or move. “So, the first protection is really the protection of the individual. STEPN Launched last December 2021, STEPN incorporates blockchain technology for the decentralized transfer of information and assets. The answer to the first question is found in the letter of PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan, quoted by senior writer Dylan Dethier of Golf. It makes it possible for the game to use non-fungible tokens or NFTs, which are unique tokens that cannot be replicated. “Throughout the years, SB Capital’s engagements have strengthened its strategic alliances with leading local and international financial institutions, carving out a niche for the company in major growth sectors such as power, energy, healthcare, property, manufacturing, microfinance, and services,” the firm said.

For many blockchain-based play-to-earn games such as STEPN, NFTs act as tokens that can later be traded for cryptocurrencies. The duration of their suspensions was not immediately clear, ‘These players have made their own choice for their own financial-based reasons. “Pero hindi ako lumabas dun sa military na hindi mo na papakialaman ang external factors, pay attention to it. How it works To begin playing, you need to download the STEPN app available on the Apple App Store or Google Play. Players will need to sign up, create a wallet for the application and buy an NFT sneaker from the in-app marketplace.’” The PGA Tour is the organizer of the main men’s professional golf tour in the United States and North America. The sneaker will depend on the player’s type of activity – Walk, Run, Jog, or Train. "10,000 times na ako na-interview tungkol diyan and I’ve declared already so many, many, many times imbestigahan ninyo iyang extrajudicial killings on the basis of which mag-iimbestiga ang ICC,” she said. The NFT sneaker is paid using SOL, the native cryptocurrency token of the increasingly popular Solana blockchain. The PGA Tour recognizes wins and records from back to April 1916 when the Professional Golfers Association of America was formed.

STEPN is also built on the Solana blockchain. Once a player’s sneakers are set, all they have to do is begin moving. It also organizes tours in Canada, Latin America, and interestingly, China, whose own human rights records will later be compared with Saudi Arabia, the backer of the LIV Invitational Series. As a matter of fact, I said, ‘you invite them here. The app’s GPS will track a player’s movement and reward him/her for successfully maintaining the required pace of the type of sneaker they’re wearing. The NFT sneakers are what the STEPN app uses to disburse the player’s earnings. It billed itself, according to writers Tarig Panja and Andrew Das, as “an opportunity to reinvigorate golf” through rich paydays, star players, and slick marketing. Different sneakers will require different levels of activity, and have different stats for efficiency which determines the rate of earnings. Then, let them have their conclusions, whatever it is,” she added.

Owning a sneaker NFT will allot a player with 2 Energy points per day, and more energy points can be added once a player owns more than three sneakers, allowing for more run time and consequently, more earnings. For the generally genteel, and, at times, staid world of professional golf, the remarks were almost immediately met with some raised eyebrows, especially from the golf establishment. Depending on the type of sneaker the player gets, one unit of Energy can earn the player varying levels of GST. GST is STEPN’s in-game token and as of writing, one GST is worth approximately P30. LIV hopes to position itself as a “player-power focused alternative” to the PGA Tour, which has been the highest level of pro golf for nearly a century, according to Pamja and Das. But two months later, in November, the ICC suspended the probe on the request of the Philippine government as the Department of Justice conducts its own investigation of several cases. A Walk-type sneaker that requires movement of just 1-6 kilometers an hour can earn you up to 4 GST tokens per Energy, while a Runner-type sneaker that requires movement of 8-20 kilometers an hour can earn you up to 6 GST tokens per Energy. It’s easy for Filipinos to begin playing STEPN. One thing is sure, however, the Saudis and other Gulf countries have found sport and tourism to be tools to show the rest of the world that one can live “normally” in these places despite strict dress codes, rules on public displays of affection, and other restrictions, and most specially their — as Phil Mickelson himself called it — “horrible human rights records.

Since SOL is already available on PDAX, the leading homegrown crypto exchange in the Philippines; through PDAX, Filipino STEPN players can easily convert their pesos to SOL and purchase an NFT sneaker. —Mel Matthew Doctor/LDF, GMA News Tags:. After creating an account, users would just have to cash-in to begin buying, selling, and trading crypto. In the case of Qatar, human rights and labor groups have decried abusive labor practices, especially in the construction of facilities for and related to the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They can cash-in through 7-Eleven/CLiQQ machines, DragonPay, ECPay, GCash, PayMaya, or through online bank transfers. Cash-outs from PDAX are also done through popular outlets such as InstaPay, PayMaya, PESONet, and more. The LIV has not attracted the crème de la crème of golf at this time. You can download the PDAX app through the Apple App Store and Google Play to purchase the SOL you need.

In future updates, another token called GMT can be collected. Tiger Woods, despite tempting offers that reportedly approximate a billion US dollars, has refused to take the bait and reminded everyone that he owes his success to the PGA Tour and will not forget that. GMT is the game’s governance token which may be eventually earned by leveling up your NFT sneaker, halving events, and/or random daily distribution. Both GST and GMT can then be traded for other cryptocurrencies such as SOL or even fiat currencies—enabling players to literally earn as they run. Rory McIlroy has shunned the offers too. Indeed, since its launch, STEPN has gained a large amount of attention as it presented a new way for people to get fit while combining the best the worlds of blockchain and NFTs have to offer. Just last April, STEPN collaborated with global running shoe brand Asics where they released a collection of limited edition STEPN Asics sneaker NFTs. That 48-man field which teed off in shotgun fashion (players tee off simultaneously from different holes and tour the course in normal sequential fashion for the rest of the game) at Club Centurion included a 15-year-old Thai golfer.

The collection gained more than 95,000 participants and subscribed tickets from the STEPN community. The collection’s trading volume even exceeded USD$10 million and maintained a floor price of USD$3,000.25 billion), with $20 million for the individual event and $5 million more to split in the team competition. .
