We all like to make personal goals. Lose weight. Eat healthy. Save money. The problem is that most of us don't have anyone to keep us accountable.
BetterBet is peer-to-peer accountability system that gamifies the goal achievement process. Wanna prove to others that you can achieve your goal? Simply bet money against your accountability buddy. If you don't meet your goal, then your money goes to your friend. If you do meet your goal, and your accountability buddy confirms this, then the money is yours to keep.
Create an account at BetterBet. You can either use your email or Facebook account. Note that you will need to provide your credit card information. To become an accountability buddy, you will also need to provide your bank account information in your user profile.
BetterBet requires a one-time charge of 50 cents to get started. BetterBet will not make any other charges until you fail to meet your goal.
BetterBet uses the Stripe API for handling payments. We never store your credit card or bank account information on our system.
