LYKA is a digital community where you get hundreds of Gems as a reward for posting photos and videos. Later you can use these gems in partnered stores.

For every photo, you earn 0.05 Gems. If someone likes your content and gives you an MR you again earn the same amount. On the contrary, if you give MR to others you get 0.02 gems. 

Here 1 GEM is equivalent to 1 PESO.

Sometimes you get money for doing nothing. Yes, you heard it right. When you sign up you get 15000 free gems.

How to get verified in lyka app

Verification is very easy and is not limited to well-known brands or celebrities only.

After verification your chances of more gems increase.

You just have to give additional details like mobile number and more to get verified.


It is a great platform to earn a few bucks. You can easily manage your little expenses through this. 

But if you see the Lyka app as major money earning source, then you should expect less. It can’t replace a full-time job.  

Make sure to post authentic and high-quality photos. Images that are not clear, beg for ratings, or deliver bad things can get banned. Be regular in posting!
