Intriguing but huh?
Update December 2018
Finally reached 25 fitcoin plateau and cashed in for a gift card. The gift card Order didn’t zero out my balance which I thought was odd. I then cashed in my calories and it took everything to zero so I don’t know if I’m getting a gift card or bitshares or what. I am unable to login to my bitshares account using any browser now. Very odd behavior but will keep trying. There simply isn’t enough information in the app on how it’s all supposed to work. Wish there was more but will be spending a little less time in it in favor of simpler pay to exercise apps like Carrot and Achievement.

The idea behind the app and the ease of setup show a lot of promise. Since it’s crypto-currency, there needs to be more how-to and reference information but the rewards seem to come at slightly better rates than other pay for fitness apps. I exchanged help emails and the tutorials appear to be on their way soon. Stay tuned on this one but I recommend setting it up, linking your fitness app/device and seeing what transpires.
I have used Fitcoin for a couple of months right now. At first, I made the mistake that I linked wrongly to another account when redeeming my coins, so I lost around 10 Fitcoins. Then, I have been reaching about 20 Fitcoins that until now I haven’t received either a response from support via email or the coins reflected in my bitshares account.
Needs some improvements in terms of customer service and replying messages.
Update-The developer reached out and let me know there was an issue with updating from Apple health. The have since fixed it and it is reflecting my calories burned. Optimistic about this app now due to them working on resolving issues.
I have tried to use this app but it does not update calories burned. When I click on update calories I get a message that I should have at lest 5 Fitcoin a to redeem. The whole propose of the app was to earn fitcoin. It fails at what it is suppose to do. Do not try this app.
