Step App partners with Usain Bolt, now ready for closed beta testing
Move-to-earn metaverse Step App is set to undergo closed beta testing, where a number of stakers will be given access to the game sometime this week while Usain Bolt now becomes the official face of the app.
Step App, a move-to-earn game described by the team as the “first Health metaverse,” is now ready to undergo closed beta testing as they announce a partnership with Usain Bolt.
The beta testing info was revealed in the developers’ latest weekly update tweet, where they provided details on what the game dev studio has been doing over the past week. One of these new developments includes the preparation of beta testing, where a select few stakers will be given access to the game sometime this week. Alongside the closed beta, the weekly update post shows that the team has successfully managed to get the testnet for their native blockchain up and running, with the release date for the mainnet launch planned to be revealed during this week. The developers have also started integrating their blockchain with various major bridges, with everything set to be ready together with the mainnet.
The team has also unveiled that they have signed the “world’s biggest athlete as face of Step App” which was revealed today to actually be Usain Bolt, who will represent the app and participate in Step’s various physical and social media events. Step App’s team has also started work on forming a deal with 3 of the largest running challenges in the world, while also preparing the documentation for the blockchain ecosystem. These blockchain ecosystem docs will release once the release date for the mainnet is announced.
Step App’s NFT marketplace is set to launch in Q3 this year. The fitness app features a governance token called FITFI, as well as an in-game token called KCAL, earned by being physically active and staking your SNEAK NFT, with those same NFTs set to be purchasable using KCAL.
