Actifit Month One: Stats, App v0.3, Charity Support, ~50k SP and more

in #utopian-io2 years ago

Today Actifit celebrates one month! 30 days ago we announced our project Actifit, an SMT that rewards being active via Actifit tokens and Steem upvotes on the Steem blockchain.
We were amazed by the community's positive response, which has helped us grow every day and reach big milestones within such a short period of time.
Below you will find some more updates about the project, delegation status, as well as details about what to expect to find in the latest version of the app including charity support.

One Month in Numbers

We have been quite busy and crazy active during this month. We created our official website, we automated a lot of our processes, grew our discord to around 200 members with the help of 10 moderators. We onboarded 3 ambassadors, 3 athletes, and 2 social media managers.
All of this fantastic team is listed on actifit.io.
We also released 3 versions of our Android app, the most recent of which, v0.3 beta, has been released few hours ago. (Actifit is an open source project on github.)
Actifit has been constantly receiving an increasing number of contributions on a daily basis submitted via the app, with successful proof of activity as depicted via the app. Few days ago, those numbers have reached new milestones hitting around 100 activities per day. While we will prepare a more detailed report about the growth, yet the total number of actifit tokens that have been distributed so far, as shown on our official website - actifit.io, is around 380K Actifit tokens (number is actually larger as delegator payments are calculated weekly) to over 6k steemit accounts (including delegators, contributors, upvoters/resteemers...), and to over 1,300 contributions.

Also utilizing our growing delegated SP, which is approaching 50K SP ( today we reached over 47K SP), we were able to reward all those contributions via upvotes, but also provide rewards back to our delegators!
A big thank you to all our delegators for their support, who reached 94 delegators at this moment.
Delegators earn daily Actifit tokens with a 1:1 match to their delegated SP, as well as a 5% beneficiary reward from actifit posts. So if you delegate 500 SP, you earn daily 500 Actifit tokens (up to a max total cap of 100,000 Actifit tokens per day).
To delegate, you can use any of the following links below
10SP, 20SP, 50SP, 100SP, 250SP, 500SP, 1000SP, 5000SP, 10000SP, 50000SP, 100000SP, Custom Amount
Make sure you have at least 15 SP left on your account.

Android v0.3 beta

Earlier today, we released v0.3 beta to google playstore , whereby it should already be available for update/download. This included a set of new features that would make the lives of users much easier, and also some which were long awaited as well as bug fixes. We will announce some of the key features below

Wallet Support:

While within the month we added support to allow users to view their wallet balance from our website, we also decided for better usability to make this available from within the app. Hence the app now supports a "Wallet" screen that allows the display of your current total Actifit tokens balance, along with the detailed transaction that led to this balance.

Lock Screen Display & Aggressive Background Tracking:

For ease of access to your activity count, we added a continuous display notification available on your lock screen that allows automate tracking and display of your current activity count.
We also included a long awaited fix whereby on some phones models/Android versions the application was unable to capture movement when phone is closed. For this purpose, a new setting has been added under the name "Aggressive Background Tracking", which when turned on will resolve the issue for affected phone models.

Donate to Charity:

We implemented this feature to allow any charity to receive support from steemians who are willing to donate their rewards. This came to us as a suggestion from our acfitift ambassador @taskmaster4450, following some communication he had with the mannabase team, and we thought this is a fantastic idea!
So this feature is now part of the current release. At the moment we haven't added any particular charity to the list, so any active charity on steemit can benefit from this feature, whereby anyone interested to donate can do so via their daily activity.
If you are/know a charity you would like added to the list, please have them contact us to coordinate doing that, and the option will be available to all users.


image.png

Tracking Measurements:

We believe a part of any activity tracker is to allow tracking of your measurements progress, which is why we added a part for that while posting your daily activity.
While this is not a required part, especially if you're not too fond of taking measurements daily, yet this is available now in terms of tracking your weight, body fat,...


image.png

Abuse Prevention:

We have implemented few measures to also minimize the potential for abuse. This included a limitation of one single post per day. This is now built into the app, instead of relying on our rewarding bot, as there were few caveats before with this approach.
Along similar lines, we also implemented a min required word count when describing your daily activity/post content, so as everyone submitting their activity will be required to type useful information about their day, in at least 30 words or more.

Upcoming Plans

We are looking forward to grow this project further, we have lot of plans piled, including but not limited to the following:

  • Creating an iOS version
  • Integrating with wearables
  • Adding image upload functionality from the app
  • Adding calories, distance, GPS, and time tracking
  • Adding goal tracking
  • Adding music playing functionality
  • Adding a forget credentials option
  • Graphics based and look and feel enhancements
  • Website updates
  • Increasing exposure to Steemians
  • Bringing in fresh audience to Steemit/Actifit
  • More updates on the financial plans, the white paper,...
    That's it for now. Stay tuned!

that is my own opinion and tell me your opinion.

I am very glad to be delegating to this worthwhile project , also if you ever wondered how much AFIT token ( SMT ) would be priced at , here is my prediction :

hi,
I APPRECIATE YOUR PROJECT AND EXPECT GREAT FROM THIS PROJECT .

I like your initiative !

I just installed the app, but it behaves very strange... it's vibrating every time I do a single step. Funny, it's like walking with a vibrator in my pocket!

hey @steemmillionaire,

This is a known issue with Android 8, you just need to go to settings and put actifit notifications on mute, and it would basically stop those beeps :)
This fixed has been already done and will be pushed on our next version update of the app.
Enjoy getting fit with Actifit :)

Hi,

the app and the project behind it looks really promising and I like what you do. But why do you need so many bid bots. It seems all the attention comes from those bots. Don't you think your project would gain attention without the massive use of bots?
I'm looking forward to your next posts about the app and actifit in general.

Kind regards,

The Secret Service

hey @secret.service,
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and enthusiasm about the project, and for inquiring about why would we use bid bots.
Bid bots, when used properly, are actually a great marketing tool. They are quite similar to you placing an ad on facebook, google,... or other services.
While we rely on organic marketing and word of mouth, yet promotional tools help reach out a much wider audience, and hence ensures your idea reaches a great amount of people.
While this can be abused by low content paying for bid bots, this is definitely very helpful for showcasing great projects and great ideas, which we hope many share our thoughts of Actifit falling into the latter category.
Thanks again!

Hi @mcfarhat,

Thank you for your honest reply. I never thought of bid bots as a marketing tool. I understand the need for it. So you actually use them not to get a high payout. You use them to get on trending page and get attention. It is really like ads would work.
Unter this circumstate I fully support the use of bots. Keep up the good work! I expect great things from this project 🙂

Kind regards,

The Secret Service

@secret.service, I think that the use of bots here is to get more exposure and push this message in this community. Using bots isn't wrong secondly this is a more sort of announcement so it is better to resteem it and give it more exposure. The projects will remain unsung if nobody says about it. So, they have done the awesome job and will continue.

Hi,

I agree with you that the project is awesome and deserves the attention. However it looks weird if the attention is bought using bid bots.

Kind regards,

The Secret Service

Looks like someone read my mind.well said!!!

Seems like you are new to this platform. You will get it why people use massive bots and bids. However this one is for good cause.

Upvote for me please, i am new in this site

Oh, I gotta download this. What exchange deals with your tokens?

Actifit tokens are planned as SMTs, so they will be available once Steemit inc officially launches SMT.
For now, anyone can track their balance on the wallet within the app, or on https://actifit.io

Can anyone join your project? Or just for those who have fitness activities?

Anyone with steemit account can join. I guess you walk in your office ,home, for domestic purposes,then you can use this app for tracking your steps. That is a kind of activity you know haha...😀😀

Ha ha... thank you,@kpreddy yes I will try this App.

Please let us know how you felt with our app....Hope you will enjoy it to the core😀

What an amazing month! Congratulations, I really wanna try this, but I just wait for the iOS to get it in my phone. BTW I'm a graphic designer, in case you need something like banners or logos, or whatever, I won't charge you anything, just want to help you with what I can :) cheers and keep it up!

Wow... That's a very kind gesture @fivefiveeleven.

Once we need any graphics, we would definitely call on you. And for sure, just count from 1 to 100 and backwards repeatedly and the ios version will be dropped in no time. Kidding!!

We can't wait to see you onboard so we are already fast tracking the development of the iOS app. It would be available pretty soon. Thank you for your kind gestures.

@curtwriter (Actifit Moderator)

We are dying to have you on board.Here is the link:https://bit.ly/actifit-app

Give me a follow and a upvote because I gave you a upvote and follow you

Steemit doesn't work this way lol😀😀

I think you will enjoy more of this project if you get onboard. I have been using this app since last 2 weeks and you can't imagine the experience and reward it is giving. It's a great opportunity to be the early users of this wonderful platform. Imagine what would have happened if you were on steemit 2 years before.

ya you right bro

what is it?...please help me......

To explain in layman terms:
Actifit is an fitness rewarding app. You simply have to install the app ,open it, then start your fitness activity . You can see in the app that your activity will get recorded while you are doing your activity. Activity doesn't necessarily have to be any exercise or something. You just go for a evening walk,you walk in home,office or anywhere- everything will be regarded as activity. At the end of the day you have to post your activity to steemit. This option Is provided with in the app. You will get one upvote from @actifit everyday in your actifit post based on your activity and simultaneously you will aslo receive some AFIT(actifit) Tokens.

How are actifit token rewards spread for actifit post authors?
Count Actifit Reward
5,000 to 5,999 20 tokens
6,000 to 6,999 35 tokens
7,000 to 7,999 50 tokens
8,000 to 8,999 65 tokens
9,000 to 9,999 80 tokens
10,000 and above 100 tokens

What will the tokens be used for?
Our plans are to have Actifit tokens available for purchasing fitness related equipment, tools, gadgets, sports wear,... and enable transactions between providers and actifiters. Add to that, we plan on creating gym partnerships for the use of Actifit tokens for paying gym memberships and similar concepts.
And most importantly, once SMTs are launched, Actifit tokens will have their own valuation against STEEM as well as FIAT currencies, and hence can be cashed out for actual FIAT currency.

So what are you waiting for ?? Download the app right away from here https://bit.ly/actifit-app and start getting healthier and wealthier.

Hope this gave you a rough idea on how this app works. Pls don't hesitate to ask if you need further assistance.

Wow nice one. the purpose of actifit is awesome and easy to apply. i'm looking forward to get the app and start working on it.

Really like it, especially the charity feature.
Looking forward for the wearables integration 😊

Hi Actifit
I most say that i am exited, you guys are doing great job and have achieved allot already. I will like you to include music functionality to the app as you already stated in your plan because in my own opinion music can do the magic along with the app
Keep up the good job

Haha...Thanks for the suggestion!! That is there in our plans as mentioned above.

And I have one question is it possible in next release to include scan QR code instead writing private posting key when I want to login and post my day activities?

If possible please upvote or promote my steemit posts...

Waiting of iOS version badly :|
Hope it will be out soon

Great work, can't wait to update the app. I hope my report card got through without any problems because it was under 30 words. Also, could maybe make it possible to upload a photo with the Steemit post?

Um, I still do not grasp what this project is all about. Actually, I'm just coming in contact with it for the first time. If you don't mind, help me with more details please.

Hi @winningman,

Actifit is a fitness and activity app that rewards you for keeping fit by carrying out activities on a daily basis. These activities include but are not limited to walking, jogging, running, football, etc.

You are rewarded with an upvote from the actifit official account, and also actifit tokens when you post your daily activities for the day or delegate to the actifit account.

We hope to see you join the community pretty soon.

Any eta on ios? I would like to use this, but I have no android phone. In the mean time I have delegated to you guys. This seems like a good project. :)

Congratulations to You.

Two concerns with the 3.0 upgrade:

  1. In the upgrade process you lost my posting key. This is really annoying to have to have my Steemit login with me and then retype it on my phone. I don't want to copy it onto my phone otherwise for obvious reasons. So if I'm away from my computer I wouldn't be able to participate until I got back. Hopefully you will remember it through future upgrades.

  2. I would strongly dislike the new 30-word requirement even if it counted properly, which it doesn't. All I'm doing is walking, it's not very interesting, and if it were I wouldn't want to write about it in a tiny window on my phone. If you want to combat the perception of shitposts maybe switch to comments like Musing did. Their service works much better that way and yours is even-lower-content.

I am from Indonesia follow me, I have the best news for you all and other interesting conten

Nice post
