The very much anticipated move-to-earn nonfungible token (NFT) game powered by Solana, started private beta testing on Nov. 3 and will be available to play on iOS and Android before Christmas.
STEPN is the world's first move2earn NFT mobile game, with the team planning to release their public beta in late December 2021. STEPN's objective is to nudge millions into healthier lifestyles, bringing them into the Web 3.0 world while contributing positively to carbon neutrality.
"It is such a simple design. People equip an NFT sneaker, then earn tokens through walking or running. The game has a built-in wallet with a swap, cross-chain convert function and a comprehensive anti-cheating mechanism to prevent exploitation. I cannot wait to play this game."
Mike Dudas - partner, 6th Man Venture, Ex-Google Wallet executive
The first season of the NFT Sneakers collection will be airdropped to community contributors. Limited NFT sneakers will be given to bug catchers in private beta and the most engaged community members.
"StepN is the first game of its kind, supercharged with gamification and move-to-earn mechanics. Soon, every runner will be earning and collecting as they track their progress. This intersection of crypto incentives, NFT collections and real-world utility offers us a hint towards the future merger of our physical and digital worlds."
Dan Patterson - general partner, Sfermion
