STEPN is a move2earn app where users earn tokens for the steps they take. Its vision is to nudge millions to healthier lifestyles, connect them to the Web3 world and contribute positively to Carbon Neutrality.
Users equip themselves with NFTs in the form of Sneakers. Each NFT Sneaker comes with different type, quality, series number, base attributes, and socket types. Users earn game currency by walking, jogging, or running outdoors, which can either be used in-game or cashed out for profit. There are in-app gamification features such as sneaker levelling, shoe-minting, mystery boxes, NFT customization and social interactions. Users need to strategize their in-app assets in various modes to achieve the best result.
STEPN has a dual-token system, a game token - Green Satoshi Token (GST) and a governance token - Green Metaverse Token (GMT), users stake GMT to participate in governance.
STEPN’s mission is to inspire millions to a healthier lifestyle, connect them to Web3 and combat climate change. In order to set up these millions of users for success, STEPN includes both social and game elements in the app. So rather than exclusively designing STEPN for gamers, its app’s design enables people across the board - from gamers to non-gamers, crypto users to non-crypto users, and across all ages and all fitness levels to be able to take part.

UNDERSTAND THE SNEAKERS
Each sneaker consists of different attributes and features. There are 4 types, and 5 qualities. There are four Sneaker types, each designed to suit a different exercise intensity and/or fitness level:
There are five Sneaker qualities. When a Sneaker is minted, the value of each Attribute will be chosen at random within the min. and max. values according to Sneaker quality. As such, even Sneakers of the same quality may have vastly different Attribute distributions.
Users can level up their Sneakers by burning GST. Each level-up takes a fixed time to complete, which increases along with the amount of GST required according to the Sneaker level. This process can be sped up by burning even more GST.
Additionally, GMT will also be required to level a Sneaker to Level 29 and 30.
Additional perks can be unlocked upon reaching certain level milestones:
Shoe-Minting Event (SME) is when users use 2 Sneakers they own as a blueprint to “breed”, producing a Shoebox in the process. Users can select a Sneaker, by heading to the Mint tab, and then choosing the Sneaker to “breed” with, and pressing Mint to proceed. The user will instantly receive a Shoebox that can be opened immediately. Read more details regarding shoe minting here
