About SynchroLife

SynchroLife is a social restaurant review service designed around the concept of building a food guide with user reviews and artificial intelligence. The social media-style app interface encourages reviews of the best restaurants and experiences, creating a database of quality recommendations. SynchroLife then guides each individual user to the best restaurants as quickly as possible by learning their dining preferences and analyzing them with the preferences of other users.

Starting in August 2018, the SynchroCoin (SYC) cryptocurrency was added to SynchroLife as a reward for users who contribute quality restaurant reviews and dine at participating restaurants. SynchroLife is the first restaurant review service in the world to offer cryptocurrency rewards like this and hopes to build a blockchain based token economy in the platform connecting diners and restaurants. You can learn more about the SynchroLife mobile app and token rewards in our August press release here:

Proof-of-Concept Campaign for SynchroLife

SynchroLife is the world’s first social restaurant review platform that offers token (cryptocurrency) rewards for users who post quality restaurant reviews. This campaign between SynchroLife and Tokyu Plaza Ginza is a proof-of-concept test for a new kind of marketing for restaurants that utilizing social media and token (cryptocurrency) cashback rewards.

In the restaurant industry, results based compensation models for customer acquisition marketing have been rare. Most advertising and marketing platforms for restaurants require monthly fees or the purchase of a special payment system upfront. SynchroLife has designed a system for restaurants usable from any mobile phone, tablet, or PC and even allows for QR code based payments and diner approvals. This means there are 0 upfront costs to restaurants.

Other SynchroLife marketing features for restaurants are results based compensation, meaning restaurants only pay when they get paying customers. Users can earn SynchroCoin (cryptocurrency) as cashback when dining at restaurants, and SynchroLife has developed a system where both users and restaurants approve the bill total at checkout for users to earn the cashback rewards. Thanks to this system SynchroLife knows when users actually visited a restaurant an how much they spent, so calculates results based compensation from this information. This means restaurants can sign up to the platform with 0 costs and 0 risks! To make things even better for restaurants, SynchroLife’s social media aspect means that when diners have a good experience at the restaurant their review might just go viral and spread through influencer marketing.

The 3% of SynchroCoin users will be receiving cashback is taken from the restaurants as payment for SynchroLife’s advertising and marketing services. The amount of SynchroCoin tokens received will be calculated based on the rate of SynchroCoin on the cryptocurrency exchange “LATOKEN” (https://latoken.com/) at the time of reward. SynchroLife will purchase the SynchroCoin from the market to pay the users, which means the more users visit participating restaurants the higher the demand for SynchroCoin will become in the market, creating a token economy business model.
