We just released an iPhone App called Burningman (http://burningmanapp.co/) that gives you free Bitcoins based on the number of steps you walk every calendar month.

No ads, no gimmicks, no fees. You walk and get Bitcoins. Details on why we built this Ad and how we plan to support it etc are provided in the FAQs (http://burningmanapp.co/).

Hope folks will like it and burn to earn Bitcoins. Any feedback and suggestions are most welcome.

Hehe. @Bloomie - we have started with 2 BTC for december. in Todays value it is close to $900 USD. You can earn as much as you walk compared to others

You should have released your app sooner! I walked from 8th ave to Lex and back probably 50+ times in the past 3 weeks.

@zanglebert - we get step count data directly from the device HealthKit storage and only steps recorded by the device, not manually entered by the user

Any plans to make an Android version? I walk a lot and would love to use this app, but I'm an Android user.

My walking earned me $4 last month, this morning's jump in exchange rates hurt payouts. It's all uphill from here. :D

Yes we do aim to motivate people to walk more. See FAQs here - http://burningmanapp.co
[doublepost=1452214628][/doublepost]Since our launch on Dec 17, 2015 we are now having users walk more than 3 million steps a day.
We hope we can get enough people that we can burn calories equal to mining one bitcoin - (see math here http://bit.ly/BITMATH

I'm having problems with the app.. When I try to convert it doesn't do anything.. I'm using an iphone. I tried to turn on and off my device, tried to uninstall and reinstall the app but it is still showing me 0 on my dashboard eventhough I'm hitting the convert button. There was only one time it showed me the monthly stats but after that it again went to 0. What should I do?
