What it does
Everyone has a hard time finding motivation to get out and be active, especially during quarantine. Wouldn’t it be great to have an unbiased source of drive, that can motivate anyone to start working out. Introducing FitBloc, an intrinsically fueling, monetarily motivational social workout platform. The concept is simple: When you sign up for the service, your athletic ability gets evaluated with the elo ranking system and you get put into a league with similarly athletic competitors. Everyone will then have to run as much as possible, and at the end of the week, the ranking within the league will then determine how much of the winnings will be paid out to the participants of the league, and deposited into the users wallets.
How we built it
All of this happens with a blockchain. Users can register their public key and athletic abilities to a smart contract that keeps track of the people in a group and the wallet for the winning pot. Hedera HackGraph is then used to let people exchange their information and workout records to keep each other accountable. After the week is over, people report their performance and the smart contract unlocks the pot and sends the appropriate HBAR to the winners of the challenge! The cycle can begin again.
The app is easy to use. The only thing that users are required to have is a Hedera wallet to both provide a source of identity and to fund the entry into a group. You can see your own performance, as well as the performance of all others in your group.
