Announcing Actifit: innovative SMT for rewarding fitness activity!

in actifit •  last year 

What is Actifit ?

Activity and fitness are two key aspects that can determine the health and quality of life of an individual.
Today's technology, while improving and easing up communication, access to information, transportation, and so many other aspects of our lives,... yet unfortunately we are getting stuck behind screens and desks for hours and hours, with practically little or no movement.

This is where Actifit is changing the game!


Relying on the innovation of blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and particularly - with its impressive underlying social-based and social-oriented approach towards reward pool and rewarding good contributions via upvotes, we decided to leverage this technology in order to provide an incentive for people to get active and fit!

We've had the idea for Actifit for several months now, and now it's became a reality, especially that SMTs are becoming imminent.
Actifit aims to create an SMT on top of to allow proper reward based on "Proof of Activity" for its users. This would require the users to provide proof of their physical fitness activity, and reward them accordingly.
To avoid scammers, Proof of activity relies on automated capturing of said activity, and to get that accomplished, we will be kicking off such work relying on step count, while hopefully expanding this in the near future to allow more activity tracking to be able to better (and more accurately) reward active and fit individuals.

How does it work?

There is a wide variety of step count (and health) trackers available that can be easily installed on mobile phones, such as Google Fit, MyFitnessPal, Samsung Health,... and of course not to forget wearables such as Fit Bit, or hardware-based pedometers.
While some of those trackers allow you to edit your actual activity, which is something we do not allow as it could lead to manipulation, we have been working on building our own app which handles capturing the step count relying on existing open source work and Android support.

We have been planning this announcement for few weeks now, but decided to only make it happen after having our v0.1 of the Android app ready for use, and it is ! :)

So the tracking and reward process would be through those “easy yet active” 5 steps:

  • Download our free Android “Actifit Fitness Tracker” app from googleplay via this link here
  • Install and run the app.
  • Perform your activity / workout. Steps are auto recorded in background (visible through app)
  • Once you reach your target steps, click Post to Steemit. New posts will be created with the first tag as #actifit and auto-includes step count.
  • Get rewarded!
    You are eligible for a single post/reward per day. Only your last post will be taken into consideration when the voting round kicks off.

Please note that We DO NOT store your private posting key online anywhere, and it is sent via https to create your post. We do however store your user and posting keys privately on YOUR DEVICE to be accessible only via the app for ease of re-use to the user.
Also most importantly, our app is open source, and accessible on github here.

Auto Step Recording

Posting to Steemit

What is the Actifit token?

We will be introducing our ACTIFIT token. At the time being, and until SMTs are ready, ACTIFIT will be an ERC20 token to be swapped once SMTs are officially live.
ACTIFIT tokens will be airdropped in different ways to steemit users as detailed below, including as delegation incentive, proof of activity (posts) rewards, upvote and resteem incentive, as well as reward mechanism for continuously helpful members of actifit team.

How is the post reward calculated?

Posts that meet the requirements will be awarded via two approaches:
Steemit Upvotes: via @actifit steemit account, whose SP we aim to grow particularly via delegations (more on delegator rewards below).
ACTIFIT Tokens: tokens will be rewarded for quality posts. More details below
The reward mechanism will be based on two aspects:

  • Step Count: Many fitness, health coaches, and apps recommend a target daily step count of 10,000 steps. In order to qualify for a minimum reward,you will need to have attained at least a min of 5,000 steps as a base number. The number of steps will determine a portion of the relevant reward the post will receive. Below are the general rules affecting what we term as “activity valuation percentage” for every post, meaning how much percent of total recommended effort was the post creator active during the day:

    0 to 4,999 steps: 0%
    5,000 to 5,999 steps: 20%
    6,000 to 6,999 steps: 35%
    7,000 to 7,999 steps: 50%
    8,000 to 8,999 steps: 65%
    9,000 to 9,999 steps: 80%
    10,000 and above: 100%

  • Community Vote: The community will also be determining a portion of the post reward value utilizing Steemit’s upvote concept. The more upvotes a post receives, the higher valuation it gets and following a higher reward,provided the minimum step count condition is met and according to the score received via above valuation. So for instance,a user who has attained 7,500 steps per day, will be at 50% active, and hence this percentage will be multiplied by the pending SBD amount to calculate the ranking of the post according to which it will receive the upvote from the @actifit account

  • Actifit Voting Power consumption: On a daily basis and at a set time, Actifit will review the list of posts eligible for rewarding, and cast a Steem upvote to consume no more than 20% Voting Power of @actifit account, so as to successfully re-generate power for the following day upvote session.

  • ACTIFIT token reward: Each post will also receive ACTIFIT tokens relying solely on the activity valuation. Hence the percentages mentioned above will reflect as actual ACTIFIT tokens. For example, the post mentioned above with 7,500 steps will actually receive 50 ACTIFIT tokens, and so on and so forth.

  • Posts upvoted by bid bots will NOT be eligible for reward as this could improperly influence their valuation.

Is there an incentive to delegate SP?

Of course! We are hoping to be able to grow the actifit account to seriously reward physical activity and fitness via Steemit upvotes. In order to do that, we will be rewarding delegators as follows:

  • Posts eligible for upvote by @actifit account will already have a 5% beneficiary amount, the rewards of which will go to delegators pro-rata to their delegation percentage. I.e. the more SP delegated the higher your reward portion will be. Another 5% beneficiary amount will also be reserved for rewarding continuous help and effort done by the Actifit team.
  • Delegators will also receive weekly ACTIFIT tokens which are also calculated on a pro-rata basis according to delegated SP. The weekly reward pool for delegators is capped at 700,000 ACTIFIT tokens, with a max cap of 1 ACTIFIT to be awarded per 1 SP per day. So an account delegating 50 SP will receive weekly up to 350 ACTIFIT tokens.
    You can easily delegate via one of the links below
    50SP, 100SP, 250SP, 500SP, 1000SP, 5000SP, 10000SP, 50000SP, 100000SP,
    Custom Amount
    Make sure you have at least 15 SP left on your account.

Did you say Airdrop?

So in addition to the award mechanism above, and the delegators airdrop, we would like to also further award fitness upvoters/resteemers via airdrops, as follows:
We will assign a weekly reward pool for upvoters and resteemers capped at 700,000 ACTIFIT tokens, with a max cap of 1 ACTIFIT to be awarded per each upvote/resteem per day. So for example if you upvote 2 #actifit posts, you will receive 2 ACTIFIT tokens. If you also resteem those 2 posts, you will benefit from additional 2 ACTIFIT tokens.

What’s to come?

  • So as we highlighted above, our Actifit Fitness Tracker Android app is now available to automate the step tracking and allow for instantaneous post creation from within the app. We will look into having an iOS version of the app.
  • Our official website is a work in progress, which will be a goto place to check on actifit posts and relevant activity, but also ACTIFIT tokens awarded to each account.
  • We have further plans on growing the platform to capture and track much more useful data, including cals burned, heart rate, weight, height, age, but also more innovative ways to capture fitness activity including workouts, exercises,...
  • We are looking into integrating with other APIs which could enhance and expand the experience of tracking fitness data, particularly via other wearables.
  • Please note that while we made our best to ensure the best start of the project, yet we might have missed something or made a decision that could have been enhanced, and hence will constantly make updates to the project and aim to enhance all aspects to ensure it satisfies its purpose of rewarding the community’s fitness activity.

wow This is very promising and may end up giving steemians cheaper healthcare, wow

imagine when teh whales can gfive all steemian with a certain amount of steem some INSURANCE
omg imagine steempower giving you Health insurance and other benefits and perks... we are more than just a crypto currency or a blockchain or a social media network, we are all of those things and paypal and we are our own google our own amazon and we will become our own travel agency our own law group our own global government for us living on the internet!

Thank you!
We appreciate also you being the first delegator to our project, thanks again!

@actifit @mcfarhat yes youre cloning an existing working business model and I am proud of you for picking something that we knw will work and ha such promise and such expand-ability to mix in steem monster type games to allow people to do excersize while pout capturing steem monsters in a sort of pokemon go or steem monsters go gps type geocaching game like takara app where you can win btc finding it hidden throughout the map :D this remind some of the EOS San Diego guy Kent who is making his Challenge Token for EOS top challenge people to do pushups or excersize, this seems very similar and you dont need eos 6to do that sort of project, steem can do SO MUCH we just need to get a massive amount of well marketed projects created to show people that just like EOS, we to have projects being built on Steem... SMT will finally allow for that and I cannot wait!

Thank you for the nice words, we certainly are looking forward to SMTs and for our project to bring a boost and more user base to Steem as well, while rewarding people !

And the first delegators name is:
dr.frankenstein... :)
That says it all.. lmao
Yall should call it "Frankenfit"
Promoting technical enslavery for humanity ;)
Plus, forget all my "hatin"
I do patent research since 20 years.
Please explain to me how fine the sensors
of the smartphones can be, to measure
precise ?
And isn't it the easiest to manipulate?
You can put it on something that moves
whole day...

this tracker able to tack my BMI and also my pulse rate with calories burned

So , If I strap my phone on my dog and let him run around in guys wouldn't know ?...asking for a friend

Just kidding...great project guys !!

haha thank you !
The benefit is two-fold using actifit, health-wise and steem/actifit tokens. While we try to minimize the abuse and prevent it, there will always be ways to just do that, and we will always think of ways to combat it.
Still we are presenting the community with a double-sided benefit, so why only take one portion of it?
Thanks again!

bwahahaha...good one!


lol 😂

Is this tracker able to tack my BMI and also my pulse rate with calories burned? I am a sport lover and very much careful about my health so please suggest me should i go for it or should i keep an eye on it?

i am a very fittness lover too...i need these gadgets to moniter my calorie burn....very good information and nice question by you @bibekchandra

you can have multiple trackers working at the same time. At the moment it only tracks step count, but you get rewarded for that :)

i will be buying one please provide me the link...

thank you @mcfarhat

Are these fitness trackers really moniter our health status..? If yes then I will be using one of it and will follow daily routine of exercise...Thanks @bibekchandra

Seems to me that Lympo is already doing this?

Nevertheless, thanks for the solid post.

Namaste, JaiChai

Lympo have a somewhat similar concept for sport reward, but AFAIK their plans is to allow trainers to reward ppl, which is different than our system here. They also still don't have any product in place yet.

thanks for clarifying.

Namaste, JaiChai

Good Initiative with blockchain technology!

This is amazing. Great job bringing this to market. I love to see more applications added to the STEEM blockchain.

One question, any idea on the time frame for Apple version...I know a number of IPhone people.

I will test the android out tomorrow.

@actifit It doesn't work properly. When I downloaded it, it gave me just over 100 steps to leave my house and walk down my alley.

We hiked the trails for 45 minutes and it showed a total of 509 steps. We took the exact same route home and it shows a total of 623 steps. It isn't counting steps properly.

So then I rocked it back and forth a few times and it quickly jumped to over 1,000, but...


We were just discussing this matter with @mcfarhat in the discord channel. Feel free to join if you are not yet in it link. They are aware of this and it is done quite on purpose because some devices are still not that sensitive hence lack in detecting some steps... So for now you get some extra rewards 😁

One step closer to the microchip. Terrible. Warning, people!
Do your sports, mos definitely!
But do it without microchips on your body.
Wanna become a Robot, MindBodySoul!?
And all that tracked Data, what will they do
with that.. of course, just reward you...tsss
I am a sportsman & prob. fitter than most of yall,
but forget about this!
Keep that smartphone distant to your body.
1 Love

Luca prefers these rings!


For those who know & tried Olympic Rings:
Only for strong people.
You know where the type of smile comes from, that you gave me?
It's showing teeth & it's a sign of fear.
Don't be scared 12345...what a great name!


May your battery live long!

Wonderful initiative! Will definitely target for the daily 10k steps!

By the way, just checked the, unfortunate it looks to be done:

This is fantastic guys. I’ve been hoping to see something like this to come along for a while.

Will you be releasing the app for iPhone users as well? I’d love to get involved but only just bought this phone lol...

Thank you, we have plans for an iOS version, hopefully soon !

wow... I will try this ..

can't wait to see your first post :)

More SMT projects? Yes please!

Hell yesss!! And i like it!! When getting my vacation i will always do more than 10k steps hahahaha

  ·  last year (edited)

Amazing Concept... Hope so... It can make fit to people... Thanks for this valuable information.
STAY FIT with #actifit @actifit

I tried to post ut i got an eero posting trough the app on the steemblockchain. I had 1300 steps and wanted to try if this works. Also it seem to count more steps then I accually take.

Thank you for giving it a try !
That is odd, we hadn't faced issues sending out posts to the steem blockchain. Are you certain of the credentials you used?
Feel free to chat to us on discord to try and help troubleshooting

do we have to have a minimum of 5000 steps before we are able to post?

no you can post with a min of 1,000 steps, yet the min to get rewarded would be at 5,000 steps.

I walked 4.5 km but the counter counted only 300 steps give or take. meaby because my coinwallet was right nexto it....

Can I bother you to try and keep an eye on the counter for a bit of some time as you walk? Also sharing your phone info would be helpful too
On discord if you prefer :)

I will keep an eye on it :).

@actifit, I gave you an upvote on your post! Please give me a follow and I will give you a follow in return and possible future votes!

Thank you in advance!

i am impressed, finally some reward for the people who are working out. i love the idea and will download the app straight after this. thanks actifit

Absolutely love this, @actifit. I'm a national step count champion (hey, I have a trophy ) and have tried many reward schemes (UK Steemians may remember Bounts that started off so well). Good luck with this. I'll download and test it out before doing a review. I'm an adviser to the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine and if this takes off, I would love to see it adopted beyond active crypto enthusiasts

this is pure fire. truly amazing. great future a head for steemians.

What a great idea is this, will really blockchain technology give fitness tips, it's really awesome.

Is this tracker able to tack my BMI and also my pulse rate with calories burned?

not at the moment, but those are on our upcoming list
