Tony G will head up the Blockchain for Sports Foundation, having previously advised on several successful Blockchain projects.
Lympo has also enlisted fitness trainer and crypto millionaire Jordan Travers as an ambassador for the Sports Foundation.
Speaking about his new partnership with Lympo, Mr Gudžius said he was excited about getting involved in a platform that allows users to monetise their health and wellness data.
“Lympo is leading the way for innovation in sports and health. The Lympo platform is going to be important for athletes as well as their coaches who are going to be able to use crypto rewards for reaching fitness goals,” Mr Gudžius said.
Ms Jonuse said getting Mr Gudžius on board was part of Lympo’s strategy to increase its user base by building a network of famous athletes, sporting leaders and crypto enthusiasts.
“The overall goal of Lympo is to improve the health of people around the globe by incentivising them to reach fitness milestones,” Ms Jonuse said.
