“Lympo’s mission is one that I can easily relate to. I ran my first marathon because of a challenge and have been a passionate runner ever since. I have seen many startups and know well that the key to success is to have a great team. Lympo’s team is one of the most inspiring, and I am certain that Lympo has huge potential.”

What Is Lympo?
Lympo is a startup that aims to improve the sports and health industry, which has a global market size of 83.15 billion US dollars, by incorporating Blockchain technology. Lympo analyzes an individual’s interests and health data and begins feeding you tailored information to help you jumpstart a healthy lifestyle.
One is required to own a digital Lympo wallet where you can earn LYM tokens for your activity and achievements. These tokens can be used on the Lympo marketplace which offers a wide variety of sports and health products to keep you going.
In the long run Lympo wants to connect millions of healthy lifestyle fans around the globe and for the LYM tokens to be used in the crowdfunding of future health startups which in turn will contribute to the growth of this new ecosystem.

Lympo built its LYM token on the Ethereum protocol but according to the CEO, the startup intends to move its token ecosystem to another blockchain and NEO is likely to be it.
