Qredo Teams Up with Sweat Economy on Crypto Custody

Qredo will provide cryptoasset custody services for the Sweat Economy ecosystem and SWEAT wallet backed by industry leading decentralized Multi-Party Computation encryption.

London, September 27, 2022 – Qredo is delighted to announce its custody partnership with Sweat Economy on Sweat Wallet, the fastest growing DApp of all time.

With 120 million users across Web2 (Sweatcoin app) and Web3 (Sweat Wallet), Sweat Economy is the original ‘Move-2-Earn’ and one of the largest active communities in crypto.  On September 13th Sweat Economy distributed over 4.7 Billion of its new SWEAT token to 13.5M of its Sweatcoin users who opted to enter into Web3 and immediately jumped to the top of the DApp charts with its new Sweat Wallet app. 

Users mint SWEAT with their physical movement and access it via the Sweat Wallet app, seamlessly incentivising increased rates of movement with financial reward, with 1000 steps equivalent to one SWEAT initially.  Each SWEAT will be more difficult to mint than the last - designed as such to preserve token utility and control the rate of token release.

Qredo will provide custody services for SWEAT assets, secured by our innovative decentralized Multi-Party Computation encryption and institutional-grade governance controls.

“This partnership demonstrates the value of Qredo’s custodial network and the game-changing security it can provide to all types of stakeholders active in Web3,” said Josh Goodbody, COO, Qredo.

“Sweat Wallet app users can now get moving with confidence that their assets are backed by one of the most robust security infrastructures currently available in the crypto market.”

“For a mass market crypto product such as SWEAT, wallet and key security can throw up huge adoption barriers.  After testing a number of multisig custodial solutions we are excited to partner with Qredo given their innovative approach to decentralized custody and the cross platform liquidity that they offer for our millions of new crypto users” said Oleg Fomenko, Co-Founder, Sweat Economy.
