Let Jaywalk turn your activity into credits you can
spend in your local community.
Earn credits for walking
Earn $1.00 of JayCoin credit for every mile you walk in a day. We convert your
activity data from the Health App, which includes walking in your neighborhood, at work,
on a treadmill – every little bit counts!
Spend at participating merchants
Redeem your credits at local merchants. They will give you a discount for the
amount of JayCoin you send to them. Merchants can set limits on how much they'll
accept as well as add multipliers so your JayCoin can be worth even more!
Healthy people. Healthy community.
Jaywalk's mission is two-fold: Motivate people to be more active, while increasing foot
traffic for local businesses. Your local businesses need you and want to support your
health! Get active and support your community at the same time!
More ways to earn
Earn when you post a photo of local "spot" – places to go and
things to do. You also earn whenever your post gets up-voted!
Up-vote or Down-vote posts to help sort the home feed. You
can also change your vote later if you change your mind.

What to expect
Frequently Asked Questions
Why did you start Jaywalk?
We founded Jaywalk to help solve two big problems: the obesity epidemic as
well as the decline of local independent retail stores. Both problems have the same core cause - our
sedentary lifestyles. The ease of online commerce as well as the rise of delivery apps has made it
easier and easier to stay at home and not engage with merchants in your local community. Jaywalk
aims to fix that.
How do you track my miles?
With your permission we connect to your Apple or Android health apps and read
your current miles walked for the day. We don’t track your location nor your movement when the app
is not in use.
Are you selling my health information?
No. We are only collecting miles walked per day and rewarding you for it with
JayCoin credits. We will not sell your personally identifiable data.
Do I earn money with Jaywalk?
With Jaywalk you earn credits for walking ($1/mile), posting content, voting
on other posts, and inviting new users to the platform. Those credits can be redeemed for real
discounts at local participating merchants.
Why do my Jaycoin expire every night at midnight?
Your pedometer resets to zero every night at midnight because we want you to
walk every day! Your local independent merchants also need you to come in, spend some money, and
have some fun. Walk a few miles and redeem your JayCoin before midnight. It’s easy!
Is JayCoin like Bitcoin?
JayCoin is not a cryptocurrency. It’s simply the credits earned for walking
and sharing. You can’t buy or sell JayCoin.
