Actifit Marching Forward At A Great PacesteemCreated with Sketch.

It is no secret that I love what @actifit is doing and the potential it brings to this blockchain.

My reason for this is twofold:

First, the development team is very consistent with their updates and following the path laid out. Secondly, I feel this is an enormous market that can be tapped into and eventually draw a ton of people to this blockchain.

In keeping with the first, the two month wait is over. @actifit for IOS is now released. The approval was granted yesterday meaning that almost all phones can now use this app to earn tokens. This is an enormous breakthrough.

For whatever reason, there are a lot of people on here, more than the usual percentage, who use Apple phones. I guess Steemians are a bit different than the norm. Either way, there is the app for all to use.

As @mcfarhat stated in the announcement post, the fact that they have 200 posts daily puts them as one of the more active application in the world of blockchain. Ethereum, which is known for having dapp development, has very few apps with over 300 users.

The introduction of the IOS application should help to push @actifit closer to 300 daily users. To me, for such a young application, it talks of the potential. For @actifit to be pushing into the territory of many of the Ethereum dapps is very exciting.

The post also laid out a great deal for the immediate future. There were two things that caught my attention.

  • They are in discussion with some world class athletes about joining the team. This would really help to provide visibility and push more users to STEEM.
  • One of the top priorities is integrating with other fitness applications. Fitbit and Samsung were the ones mentioned in the past. Fitbit really excites me because there are 25M users of them out there. This is another instance where the numbers could get absolutely ridiculous in a quick period of time.

One of the biggest statements from the blockchain/cryptocurrency naysayers is that this industry does not solve problems nor have mass appeal.

@actifit answers both of these. Basically this application pays people to move. This is something people do on a daily basis yet without reward. Talk about entering the Age of Abundance. Who ever thought of getting paid just to move around? @actifit did.

The other is that this does help solve part of the inequality problem, both outside and within the crypto world. Each person earns the same for levels achieved. The max right now is 100 tokens for 10K moves. This is the same regardless of where on the social scale one is, what age you are, or how much cypto you own.

I would expect this application, if they get a few things lined up in terms of timing, could really take off once HF20 takes place and the app, itself, can sign up users. This will make the marketing outside STEEM all that more effective.

It is crucial that we keep our focus upon the applications. It is my view that this is what will carry this blockchain higher. We are rapidly moving away from talk of the blockchain. Most of the newer users going forward are not going to care about the STEEM blockchain any more than they care about TCP/IP or SMTP.

It is all about the applications.

do you know when can @actifit start signing up people from their own app ?

·

After HF20 which is the 25th I believe.

·
·

Maybe @mcfarhat can do so paid adverts for it...after the sign up from app is enabled..

We can crowdsource the funds .

·
·
·

That would have to be taken up with @mcfarhat.

I do not know his plans on that end of things.

Yes , I know.. :)
that's why I tagged him in the original comment..

Thanks @itstime for always bringing in cool ideas!
Our initial plans for now are additional airdrops to bringing in the masses, as well as rewarding social media sharing, utopian for visibility contributions ... and crowd sourcing could be an additional path of course !

I have been using it but I think the app is still very crude. I am sure it will improve.

Indeed actifit is great, as I said in my anniversary post if it wasn't for apps like actifit and the likes to pull and keep people in, i'd probably be visiting steemit way less than now.

It's a boon for the platform.

when you gonna handpick my posts ?

I'm a big fan of actifit myself and post with it everyday. For a person who loves STEEM but works full time and isn't able to spent a massive amount of time posting and blogging, actifit provides a great opportunity to earn while not writing. It opens up a whole new set of opportunities to the people on here and hopefully to the people not on here yet.

It's great to see it developing and giving an example to any other prospective apps on how to do it. Surely we will see a few more inventive apps coming on steam before the launch of SMT's and giving us more to look forward to.

Totaly agree. This project is doing a great job. I'm using it and it works excelent. I'm folowing my activities in a nice way and it keeps me motivated to move even more :)

You won't regret it, it's super simple and honestly, has gotten me off the couch more than once. Suddenly yardwork has a slight blockchain appeal.

I am starting to get excited about being an Actifit Orca. This project is really on to something. Integrating AFIT with existing apps? That would be so smart and make this be pretty valuable.

As you mentioned, @actifit has a lot of potential, because of the trend they focus... fitness is increasingly winning fans, and this app goes towards that trend.

I didn´t know that IOS was so used by Steemians, but if that´s correct, then we will be breaking the 300 users very easily.
