Bitwalking, Ltd. (“Bitwalking”) announced today nationwide availability in Malawi. With Bitwalking, Malawians can now generate money by walking. Steps convert into digital currency called Walking Dollars (W$), and each step is worth the same value for everyone – no matter who you are, or where you are.
Bitwalking has selected Malawi as one of the first countries to launch its currency. W$ will be used in the same way as Kwacha for goods and services throughout the country – boosting both personal incomes and local economies. 1 W$ is worth 1 USD, which is about 700 Kwacha.
To start Bitwalking, download the app for free from Google Play.
To accept Walking Dollars at your business, register here.
The first Bitwalking meetup event will be held in June at the College of Medicine Sports Complex in Blantyre.
