Is that like bitburger or bitpoop? Where every burger you eat you get a coin and respectively every poop you take you get a coin? Just don't get the two confused or one might think that every time you eat your poop you get a coin.

Guess the success of adoption will depend on what exchange rate is used for the BW$ vs US$.

Would have to be worth it for people to peak their interest.

There was already a coin that tried this, called Mangocoinz I think, but it's not really a coin in any sense of the word, just like a database on some guys computer that the app on your phone communicates with, afaik.

 Cheesy Not going to work, works based on GPS location as well so you actually have to move around.

Best to tie your phone to the underside of a public bus or something, preferably one that does inner city routes where the speed traveled is sometimes hardly above a fast walking pace and with frequent stops.

I'll start coding a GPS signal emulator that will fire off data to the coin servers LOL
But wait !
Who says the dev's didn't do that before launch ?
AKA: the private miner on launch scam.

They will have to make sure it only runs on iOS and Android users can join in 6 months later hahaah
Sorry MS guys you don't get to join in at all.

If there's a coin you can mine based on jerking off, most of you wankers would be millionaires.   Grin

But for realz, I very much like the idea behind walking being the driving force behind a coin but methinks it's perhaps a tad too gimicky and I don't think anything like that would be successful.  But who knows?

Bitwalking hasn't officially released the algorithm used to verify steps but says it uses the handsets' GPS position and wi-fi connections to calculate the distance travelled.

So you're letting some company track you all the time for pennies. I guess we're in a race to the bottom of the worth of privacy, with the dumbest of us out in front.
