Case Study: Sweat Economy

Sweat Economy's Trek To Web3 Security with Qredo

In an ever-expanding digital world where physical activity starts to intersect with digital finance, Sweat Economy is pioneering a change in thinking.  

Their Web2 ecosystem, launched in 2015, boasts an impressive 140M+ registered users, over 7 million Web2 users were onboarded to Web3 with Sweat Wallet. The project has taken a unique approach converting physical activity of steps per day into tangible value through their token, $SWEAT. 

Sweat Economy not only promises healthier lifestyles but also facilitates one of the most substantial onboardings in Web3 history with their decentralized application (dApp), Sweat Wallet, becoming a top five global dApp. 

🚀 Journey and Challenges

Sweat Economy's mission has unfolded in two pivotal parts: 

  • Tokenize physical activities, thereby creating a movement economy. 

  • Advocating for a more physically active world. 

Despite the overwhelming success, the platform has encountered challenges like managing their increasing volume of transactions as well as simplifying multi-sig solutions.  

Although Sweat Economy utilizes multiple solutions to disperse risk, the need for a robust system that could effortlessly handle transactions, offer flexibility, and assure safety is of paramount importance to them. This crucial need brought Sweat Economy to explore fresh solutions, leading them to Qredo.

🛠️ Discovering Qredo

Discovered through the crypto grapevine and then carefully vetted by the founders, Qredo secured Sweat's interest due to its notable flexibility, competitive pricing, and smooth interoperability.  

What significantly distinguished Qredo from its competitors was its exceptional flexibility and its capacity to bring more agility and security to Sweat Economy's transaction processes. 

Qredo's implementation allowed Sweat Economy a degree of automation, notably curtailing manual work, reducing the margin for human error, and speeding up processes, thereby enabling more strategic allocation of resources and focus on core activities.

🔐 Qredo's Adaptability and Usage

Sweat Economy employs Qredo primarily through Wallets with multiple approvers, resonating with the needs of their founders and Finance / Treasury departments, who use Qredo on a daily basis.  

Particularly instrumental for smaller, regular transactions, Qredo transactions can be approved via mobile app, rendering the process more seamless and efficient. Qredo has been indispensable in managing Sweat Economy's growing number of transactions.

📈 Fruits of Collaboration: Outcomes and Forward Paths
