Melbourne, 10 January 2018: Blockchain health and wellness ecosystem Lympo has announced poker player, politician, and philanthropist Antanas Guoga (aka Tony G) as the head of its Blockchain for Sports Foundation.
Mr. Guoga has advised on successful Blockchain projects including the world’s largest digital bank, Bankera, and digital poker platform CoinPoker.
Lympo CEO and founder Ada Jonuse said:
Tony G is a well-known philanthropist and social entrepreneur in the crypto community. He has been instrumental in advancing Blockchain technology across the world and we are delighted to have him join the Lympo project.
Lympo is a game-changing sports and wellness ecosystem that will track workout data via smartphones and wearables, rewarding users with Lympo tokens for hitting fitness and mindfulness targets. Tokens can then be used to pay for health products and services.
As an extension of the app, the Lympo for Sports Foundation will be a mechanism to provide funding for sporting events, and initiatives to promote healthy living.
Ms. Jonuse said:
As the head of the foundation, Tony G will bring a wealth of experience in sports promotion. He’s a huge sports fan and has been a major sponsor of the Lithuanian basketball team as well as the national rowing team.
The appointment of Tony G follows the announcement last month of fitness trainer and crypto millionaire Jordan Travers as an ambassador for the foundation.
Ms. Jonuse said:
We are building a network of famous athletes, sporting leaders and crypto enthusiasts to help drive this concept forward. We have a vision for Lympo which is to improve the health and well-being of people around the world by providing tangible incentives via the Blockchain platform.
The Lympo digital health and wellbeing wallet will reward users on the ecosystem with LYM tokens for their healthy lifestyle achievements, in exchange for their health data from their smartphones and wearable devises.
Ms. Jonuse said:
The Lympo Blockchain platform will be able to encrypt individual data, which is of value to a raft of health-related companies. It’s the next evolution in the lucrative market for digital fitness devices.
The Lympo token pre-sale begins on January 23. More information can be found at https://lympo.io/
Lympo is a health and wellness ecosystem, with a wallet that rewards users with Lympo tokens (LYM) for sharing and achieving their health goals. It is part of a Lympo ecosystem for health and wellness data sharing including all industry players: personal trainers, gyms, sports and wellness businesses, and health insurances.
By tracking health-related data on smartphones and wearables, Lympo aims to build healthy lifestyles and grow the Lympo community. Tokens earned can be used to pay for fitness, wellness and other health-enhancing products and services.
When users sign up to the system, they will be able to aggregate and later monetize their health and sports data, allowing them to interact with health insurances, sports and wellness businesses, and employers who want to encourage their staff to remain healthy.
The aim of the Lympo Blockchain for Sports Foundation is to support sporting events and initiatives around the world while promoting the Lympo app and encouraging healthy lifestyles.
Some of the Lympo tokens will be reserved for the Sports Foundation, which will be overseen by a board made up of famous athletes, Lympo partners, and leaders in sports communities from various countries.
Lympo token holders owning a considerable amount of tokens will be invited to vote on funding proposals.
