Walken Introduction

Walken combines crypto rewards with physical activity such as walking, running, improving their in-game characters through continuous movement or winning competitions. It encourages players to build healthier habits through competing in the game and monetizing their steps. Players can get started in Walken for free, with the game providing each player an entry-level Cathlete and a wallet to start earning after signing up. It’s possible to begin with zero investment. Steps walked or ran in real life are converted into the in-game soft currency called Gems, with one Gem given for every 1,000 in validated steps. Gems fill the level progress bar of the Cathlete in-game characters; each Cathlete is generated from six randomly selected genes, and their stamina, speed and strength increase with each level-up. The rarity of a Cathlete — common, uncommon, rare, epic and legendary — affects their stats and energy pools. WLKN is the game’s native token users receive for winning competitions. There are six competition leagues with a minimum-Cathlete entrance level and three running disciplines where Cathletes compete for WLKN tokens. The more a player moves, the faster they can upgrade their Cathlete, win competitions and earn WLKN tokens. Players can use the tokens to upgrade their Cathlete’s performance and purchase valuable nonfungible token (NFT) items on the in-game marketplace to boost their stats and crush their rivals.
