How do community challenges work? Who can join?
Community challenges are crowdfunding campaigns that get users to walk towards a collective step goal. Funds are unlocked for the campaign when users contribute enough to reach the step goal.
Do I earn sweatcoins for joining a community challenge?
You earn sweatcoins from your steps, as usual. There are no additional sweatcoins awarded to users for joining a community challenge.
Will my Sweatcoins from walking be donated to the the community challenge I've joined?
No. When you're part of a community challenge, we don't take the sweatcoins you've earned from your steps. Instead, we count your steps towards the collective step goal.
If you'd like to donate your sweatcoins to a good cause, you may check for active Sweatcoin for Good campaigns in our marketplace.
Can I join a race and challenge at the same time?
Yes. You can join a race and a community challenge at the same time. You can also join as many active, ongoing races and community challenges as you want.
Who funds these challenges?
Sweatcoin funds community challenges. We believe it's important to motivate people to move more by causes they care about.
