Move to earn fitness apps can be described as the digitization of physical activity to advance health and wellbeing. The novel use of a technology called "move-to-earn," or M2E, encourages individuals to get up and move around.

Token owners can exchange their NFTs for cryptocurrencies or sell them for fiat money through third-party exchanges.
