The STEEM blockchain will be a token factory once the SMT protocol is introduced. While that is still a bit down the road, there are some initiatives that are already tacking action.
As anyone who follows my blog know, @actifit is one of those projects. Today, I want to spell out all the different ways there are to get paid with this project.
This is the first way that one can earn. By delegating SP to their cause, you will receive a 1:1 payout on a daily basis. Hence, 100SP delegation earns you 100 Tokens per day. This will continue until they reach 100K SP delegation at which time the payout diminishes. There are 700K AFIT sent aside per week for this cause (100K per day). Early adopters are the ones who benefit the most.
In addition to the AFIT that are paid for delegation, one will also receive a percentage of the payouts that the @actifit account generates. 5% of the total upvote payout each week on posts made by @actifit are given to those who delegate. It is based upon amount of SP delegated and total rewards, hence changes each week. Nevertheless, it is STEEM on top of getting AFIT.
Delegation can start with as little as 20SP (be sure to maintain about 15SP in your account for bandwidth).
If you do not have SP to delegate, have no fear, there are other ways.
Use the application
Downloading and using the application can earn you up to 100 tokens per day. The minimum is 5K which will net 20 AFIT. From there, the amount of tokens increase for every 1,000 "steps". Please bear in mind that the application tracks movements on the phone or wearable, hence any activity is rewarded.
At present, this is only available on Android products. The IOS version is being developed.
To get paid, one needs to post the activity. This can be done directly from the application by entering one's Steemit username and posting key. Once the @actifit bot comes by, you will be credited for the activity.
Posting your activity
Posting the activity actually earns more than just AFIT tokens. The @actifit account upvotes all posts that reach the minimum 5K "steps". It is a sliding scale up to the 10K mark.
For example, yesterday's upvote for a 10K post was worth $.36.
Actifit Curation Trail
This is a must for everyone in my opinion.
Actifit established a curation trail which allows people to generate tokens by upvoting what @actifit does. This helps one in two ways:
A) normal curation rewards that apply to any curated upvote on the STEEM blockchain.
B) One AFIT token for each upvote (yesterday there were 93 posts upvoted by the @actifit bot)
The advantage to joining the curation trail is that one gets both the STEEM curation and AFIT payouts without doing anything. The upvotes are automatically cast and the tokens paid out in their assigned time periods (ACTI pays out usually within 12 hours on the upvotes).
Steemauto.com is used to join the curation trail.
This provides 6 different ways to gain tokens between STEEM and AFIT.
Personally, for smaller accounts, this is a great way to start building more power on the STEEM blockchain. Do not forget, any token that uses the SMT protocol will be paired with STEEM. AFIT might be one of those tokens to hang onto but, if someone prefers this blockchains main token, it will be an easy conversion to SP.
Also, while many missed the very early stages of STEEM, entering a project like ACTI at this time means one is an early adopter.
Here is where the project stands now.
At present, only there are less than 6,500 accounts holding these tokens. That number will grow as more people start using the application. The payouts were intentionally designed to reward the early adopters more favorably. Therefore, getting involved early in any of the ways I just mentioned is only to one's advantage.
As this project grows and becomes more widespread, AFIT tokens might appreciate greatly over time.
And besides, what good is all that wealth if you do not have your health. Getting some exercise probably would do most Steemians some good.
