Walkybit is an app that rewards your daily physical activity. Find out how it works today in our review.
What is Walkybit?
Walkybit, found online at Walkybit.com, is an app available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone in the near future. The app will reward you for your daily physical activity. The goal of the app is to make you healthier while helping build your daily habits.
Walkybit has not yet been released. When launched, however, Walkybit will have a cryptocurrency-based reward system that involves the use of Walking Power Energy Steps, or WPES. WPES can be converted into cryptocurrency (specifically, it can be converted into Centurion, or CNT).
Walkybit was made by a multilevel marketing company called Starbit International, which launched back in May. The company announced Walkybit in early September. They claim to have already released the app to hundreds of users, although we can’t find any download link available online – even at the official website.
How Does Walkybit Work?
Walkybit tracks your movement using your smartphone. You install it on your phone, and the app begins tracking your daily activity.
As you walk, you’ll accumulate reward tokens. Those reward tokens are called WPES. It’s a little confusing how WPES works, and how you make money here: there’s a legitimate, market-listed cryptocurrency called Centurion, or CNT. However, you can’t convert WPES into CNT. You convert WPES into “CNT Future” tokens, described as “the new version of Centurion coin.”
We can’t find any additional information online about CNT Future, how it works, or where it will be available for use. It’s unclear if it’s just an improvement on CNT tokens, or if it’s a totally new currency.
In any case, you’ll accumulate WPES for every 10 minutes of walking you perform.
The creators of Walkybit make a big deal out of the fact that their app is “ecological”. They claim their app will help save the world. Here’s how one sentence on the official website explains it:
“One step after the other together we can save energy and improve the environment: the legacy for generattions to come.”
Yes, they really misspell “generations” like that (not to mention the horrible use of grammar).
Walkybit promises to offer all of the following features:
Make Money by Walking:
You can earn tokens in exchange for every 10 minutes of walking you do.
Get Rewarded for Being Healthier:
You receive rewards based on Walking Power Energy Steps (WPES), which are associated with calorie burning and physical activity.
Walkybit uses a cryptocurrency called “CNT Future”. You can convert WPES into CNT Future, although it’s not totally clear how this currency works or where it’s available.
“Meet New Friends”:
The app includes geolocation and internal chat features “to socialize anywhere in the world, and meet new friends.” It’s not totally clear how this will work. However, some people may have issues with an app capable of tracking you while you’re walking or running alone in parks or around the city.
Overall, the makers of Walkybit describe their platform as “the most amazing app” and “a great incentive to improve [your] life.”
Who’s Behind Walkybit?
Walkybit was created by a multilevel marketing company called Starbit International. That company launched in May 2017. At the beginning of September, the company announced it was launching Walkybit along with “a new ecological crypto currency” called CNT Future.
CNT Future is not currently available on any exchange. However, Centurion (CNT) is listed on Coin Market Cap, where it currently has an average 24 hour trading volume of around 5 BTC, with a market cap of $2.5 million (630 BTC).
It’s unclear how CNT Future is connected to Centurion – whether it will be a hard fork, a soft fork, or just a totally new currency. However, at this point, CNT Future doesn’t appear to have any value (even Centurion doesn’t appear to be usable outside of the Starbit International ecosystem).
Ultimately, Starbit International seems to operate like most multilevel marketing companies: the company offers a small range of average-quality products while encouraging users to sign up for membership plans. You get rewarded for referring other users to the platform. When you look for Starbit International reviews online, you’ll find plenty of people spamming good reviews for the company and then encouraging you to sign up through their affiliate link. This makes it difficult to find an unbiased opinion of the company.
Ultimately, nobody is going to pay you real money in exchange for walking 10 minutes. Even if someone did create a system like this, it would be easy to “hack” to earn unlimited money. Walkybit claims to pay users for their walking activity. You don’t receive payment in the form of any usable form of currency. Instead, you receive payment in the form of Walking Power Energy Steps, or WPES. WPES can be converted into an unknown, un-launched currency called CNT Futures – which appears to be connected to CNT in some way or another.
Ultimately, Walkybit has not yet launched. The app was announced at the beginning of September, and the website features download links for iOS, Android, and the Windows Store. Based on the information we see online – including the poorly-worded website and the fact the app was developed by a multilevel marketing company – it’s hard to see much potential in Walkybit.
