Blockchain App Store Aptoide Offers Crypto Rewards For Dowloading Games And Apps

Announcements, Blockchain, News | April 22, 2019 By:

Aptoide, a blockchain-based alternative to Google’s app store, is now allowing its users to earn cryptocurrency.

Aptoide, which is powered by blockchain-based apps distribution protocol AppCoins, announced last week that its users will now be able to receive APPC Credits, a virtual currency created by AppCoins to promote and enforce the circular economy, by installing APPC-enabled apps and games. APPC Credits will allow users to make online transactions, including in-app purchases (IAP).

“As fellow Aptoiders, who strive to be on top of the gaming charts, we know how important purchasing a special item can be – it can truly skyrocket you to the top of the leaderboard,” said Sonia Sarha, Community Manager at Aptoide. “That’s when having APPC Credits can really make a difference.”

Here’s how to collect your credits:

  • Update to the latest version of Aptoide (
  • Go to the Aptoide app store and choose one of the games or apps that are APPC enabled. You can find these games in the following bundles: “AppCoins Featured Apps”, “Spend Your AppCoins” and “Get Rewarded with AppCoins.”
  • Once you have selected a game, you will automatically see the promotion banner which allows you to get APPC Credits by installing the app. If you don’t have an AppCoins BDS Wallet, install it and proceed with the next steps.
  • Install the game or app you have chosen and claim your APPC-C! Please note that each user can only enjoy this promotion once.
  • You’re ready to play!

According to AppCoins, credits cannot be cashed out or converted into fiat, which means they never leave the ecosystem. AppCoins said this creates a win-win scenario for both users and developers.

“AppCoins’ mission is to give more flexibility and access to its users, especially to users that do not own a bank card or have access to online payment methods,” AppCoins said.
