What is STEPN (GMT)?

STEPN is the first move-to-earn NFT game, which is powered by the Solana Blockchain. It combines the aspects of a play-to-earn game with that of a fitness app and coined a new category called “move-to-earn.” Its users buy NFT sneakers, which can also be used to earn in-game currency while walking, running, or jogging. 

STEPN (GMT) has efficiently garnered success in upgrading an old concept of exercising within the blockchain industry! This GameFi elements-induced application is currently fully functional and vastly popular within the space. 

Who are the Founders of STEPN?

STEPN was founded in August 2021 by Yawn Rong, an Australian blockchain entrepreneur with his neighbor and partner Jerry Huang. Mr. Rong has previously founded Crypto SA, an Australian crypto fund and pro-regulation auditor along with serving as an ambassador for Algorand. His partner, Mr. Huang is also a game developer and former founder of Falafel Games.

How does GMT work?

Similar to how an application works, users have to download STEPN into their devices. After successfully downloading the app, users have to add their wallets and transfer Solana (SOL) tokens to buy themselves NFT sneakers. Once done, they can start their journey with STEPN. 

The two main necessities of STEPN are having SOL in their wallet as it is the blockchain on which the app runs itself. The other factor is having the NFT sneakers. Users need to connect their app with sneakers and walk around or jog anywhere in the world. All the while earning points as they do so. The points collected are classified as game currency and can be used for various rewards like upgrading sneakers or NFTs and leveling up. The points can also be used for cashing out the money in the real world.

Key attributes of STEPN (GMT)

  • Burn Mechanism: The GMT token is made available in a limited supply so as to create a necessity for a burn mechanism, thus, facilitating more and more users to lead a healthy life. This process is used to reduce the circulation of both the GMT and GST tokens through various in-app activities.
  • Dual Token Model: Mainly due to the need for fundraising and utility, the STEPN ecosystem runs on a dual-token model. Both the tokens are available for users to earn, using different methods. The GMT token can be minted or earned via Token Generation Event (TGE) and the GST token is an in-app utility token that can be used to purchase in-app goods.
