This is more of an elaborative post someone else posted, but I am expanded on it through my perspective on seeing the app through my perspective despite I thought about the idea way before posting it on here. But, this would encourage more people who aren't as active to be more active and people who ride buses can get some assistance (financially) to even barefooters, runners, and joggers to get paid for doing something they are common and fine with doing.

This would help encourage more people who aren't as active to be more active and people who ride buses can get some assistance (financially) to even barefooters, runners, and joggers to get paid for doing something they are common and fine with doing. The app's title, "Paces to Pennies", implements that people would be earning a penny a step. The average number of daily steps people take (in a day) can be around 5000 to 7000 steps, which means the average person can earn $50-70 just by walking. From there, the steps can be generated into PayPal cash every 6 pm (ET) since PayPal rules (for those who have a PayPal) states that any amount past 7 pm (ET) will be transferred to their bank account the day after tomorrow instead of tomorrow. For those who do not have a bank account and/or PayPal, then you can allow the money they earned and turn it into e-gift cards for them to print and use in stores, which saves money from mailing a gift card to the rightful person.

Hey Lew Sterling , I'm Jasmine another facilitator for this year's challenge. I truly am intrigued by the idea presented. It seems like an easy way to make easy money, are there other apps similar to this out already? Would it be limited just to steps or would entire workouts be calculated into the count?
