Bitwalking dollars: Digital Currency That Pays You Just For Walking

A digital crypto-currency generated by human movement has been launched!

Bitwalking dollars will be earned by walking, unlike other digital currencies such as Bitcoins that are "mined" by computers.

A phone application counts and verifies users' steps, with walkers approximately earning 1 BW$ for about 10,000 steps (about five miles).

Initially, users can trade what they earn for cash or spend them in online stores.

The founders of the project, Nissan Bahar and Franky Imbesi have attracted more than $10m (£6.6m) of initial funding from mainly Japanese investors in order to help launch the currency and create the bank that verifies steps and any transfers.
Japanese electronics giant Murata is working on a wearable wristband that will provide an alternative to carrying a smartphone and show how many BW$ the wearer has earned.
Shoe manufacturers are poised to accept the currency, and a UK high street bank is in talks to partner with the project at one of the UK's biggest music festivals next year.

The founders have a track record in disruptive technology that could help developing nations as much as richer ones.

This idea is also a fitness booster. As it help to maintain healthy body and they also have plans to partner with sportswear brands, health services, health insurance firms, environmental groups, and potentially advertisers who could be offered unique insights into the audiences they are targeting.
