Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok power the social media market. However, it does not mean that new ones aren’t worth your attention, especially if they reward users in some way. Yes, you read that correctly. With Lyka, you can interact with other users and get rewarded for using the service. If you’ve never heard of it before, keep reading to find out more.
Lyka: What is It?
The Lyka community allows users to upload photos or videos of their interests. Both Android and iOS devices are supported. When it comes to uploading an image or video on this platform, users are rewarded with GEMS (Gift cards in electronic form). Additionally, Lyka users will earn GEMS every time they engage with others’ posts.
So basically, it’s like the Facebook community, but the difference is that you are rewarded for your participation, consistency, and interactions with everyone.
How Does This Virtual Community Work?
You can earn 0.05 GEMS by posting or sharing a photo on the platform. When someone gives your image an MR (Max Rate), you make the same amount. The amount of GEMS you earn each time you MR another user’s photo equals 0.02 GEMS. One GEM equals one PESO. Now that’s one of the reasons why you can see tons of people sharing this application recently.
You will be given 5 GEMS upon signing up with Lyka. In addition, users are also welcome to send you gems as gifts on Lyka. If you get verified on Lyka, you will receive 15,000 gems as a welcome gift. One of the advantages of this app is that the verification process isn’t limited to popular users or people. Signing up and getting verified is free, which is a good thing, especially during this pandemic, and you have plenty of time to burn at home.
Who Uses Lyka?
At present, this app is being used by thousands of Filipinos. Many social media influencers and celebrities are also trying out this app to increase their community or fanbase. Many of these online stars are sending away GEMS to their followers. So you might as well try and check your luck.
You can earn money on Lyka when you post and interact with other users, so this app is for everyone. Lyka is a great tool, but it should be used responsibly. Don’t share any personal information if you use it to protect your privacy.
Where Can You Use Your GEMS?
A GEM is equivalent to one PESO, so the GEMS you receive through this app are worth just as much as real cash. Lyka GEMS is accepted by several merchants, such as Adidas, Guess, Aeropostale, and PlainsandPrints, to name a few. We hope this increases moving forward!
Lyka Gems can also be used to buy furniture and appliances at select Abenson stores or to have leisure time with your family and friends at participating hotels and restaurants. The GEMS you earn can also be used to purchase a car at select Ford dealerships if you make enough. Additionally, there are shops on Instagram that accept Lyka GEMS, such as GadgetsManila.
So there are plenty of benefits served under your plate here.
Is Lyka A Good Source Of Income?
Currently, you cannot directly withdraw Lyka GEMS into cash or buy cash and convert it into Lyka GEMS. The money you’ll be getting from Lyka will not be enough to sustain your needs compared to a full-time job. It’s still possible to earn some small cash in your spare time to satisfy your basic Luho needs.
Apart from that, many people on this platform send GEMS to people who follow them. It is not uncommon for people to give away up to 3,000 GEMS at a time, especially if they have plenty to give their fanbase or followers.
However, one known setback about this tool is the app in some respects because it has many bugs that require updates and fixes. You’ll encounter this every time you post or share a photo. At times, your account gets logged out, or the Lyka app crashes too.
In addition to the above, there are several unfinished features for Lyka, such as getting your notification when someone follows you, MRs your photo, and purchases GEMS. However, if you have the patience, the pros outweigh the cons!
So, what are your thoughts? Have you been part of this growing community? Did you manage to use your GEMS for something else? You are welcome to share your experience if you have used this app before.
