Posted on Friday, September 1, 2023

Mission and Vision for Sweat Economy:

Since 2015, Sweatcoin and now Sweat Economy have been dedicated to making the world more physically active. With over 140 million registered users, thousands of partners, and an impressive 20% increase in physical activity, Sweatcoin has become the fastest-growing health and fitness app ever. The introduction of the $SWEAT token has revolutionized our ecosystem, making it the largest onramp in web3 history with over 15 million token holders in under six months. Our Sweat Wallet app, with more than 6 million users, is a contender to become the largest non-custodial mobile wallet application. Our ultimate goal is to create an economy of movement, similar to the attention economy valued at over 7 trillion US dollars, with $SWEAT - our token - serving as the principal unit of physical activity value exchanged.

Your mission:

Sweat Economy is searching for a Marketing Director to help us build our web3 community to a hundred million users and position $SWEAT token as the primary unit of physical activity value. We need a visionary leader who can deliver both a compelling strategy and a marketing plan while focusing on the promotion of the Sweat Wallet app and SWEAT token, as well as hands-on management of internal and external resources to execute this plan’s delivery. Your role will be to develop and maintain a strong brand presence and grow our community while creating a seamless connection with our sister business, the Sweatcoin app, which is our user acquisition channel. Ultimately, we would like to be known as the most community-centric project and to get press coverage akin to “Physical activity value has grown xx% yesterday on the news of yyy.”

  3. Develop a community engagement strategy across all relevant channels to deliver on MOAU goals (document review).

  4. Develop a strategy, plan and success metrics of how we can build our token into a “primary unit of physical activity value” (document review).

  5. Develop recommendations for future organizational structure, processes and the budget for the next 12 to 18 months period (document review).

Twelve to eighteen months:

  1. Exceed 1.1M MOAU by the middle of July, 2.5M MOAU by December 2023 and 5M by September 2024 (current is 760k)
