Paces to Pennies

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 , this is MaCie' one of the facilitators here! Thank you for participating in the challenge! This is an interesting concept and would motivate people to live healthier lives. Who do you think you could get to financially back this type of program? How long would it last, til money is gone? a couple of years?

Hi,
Sorry for the late delay. Nice that you like this idea. :) People, personally, should live healthier lives. Well, I am still thinking further into how this can help and benefit others with regards to financially getting back since everyone deserves a helping hand.
