STEPN GO and STEPN OG Comparison

Let’s take a look of what we know about STEPN GO and how it will compare with STEPN OG (Original)

What will happened to STEPN OG?

FSL assured that they are not abandoning STEPN. As you can see from the table, you cannot earn GMT with STEPN Go and STEPN Go is clearly a social app which they have incorporate social, interactive map and PvP.


From the comparison table, STEPN Go is clearly different from STEPN OG with the social, avatar features.

Learning from STEPN OG, they have fix a few things which would stabilize the marketplace:-

  • All level of Mystery Boxes give level 1 stone. Unlike OG which higher MB gives higher level of stones and player can flood the market
  • Get more energy cap by burning shoes. Unlike OG which you hoard more shoes to get more energy, GO reduce the number of shoes in the market and hence making shoes more valuable

If you are not a regular jogger and want consistent earning, you probably want to stick with STEP OG since it does not ‘punish’ you if you pause in between. However, if you exercise regularly and if the GGT token price is great, it is probably more profitable to use STEPN Go.
