About SynchroLife

SynchroLife is a social restaurant discovery service that helps diners find good restaurants fast and reliably. The service is currently available for both iOS and Android smartphones in over 155 countries and four languages (Japanese, English, Korean, and Chinese). 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.

SynchroLife is the world’s first restaurant discovery service to include a token economy and solves both restaurant search problems for diners and marketing problems for restaurants by rewarding core users with token rewards for reviews and diners with cashback rewards for their meals. SynchroLife aims to move from an O2O business model to a fintech business model while introducing cryptocurrency to the average consumer through the daily activity of dining out.

By participating in the MUFG Digital Accelerator Program, SynchroLife aims to partner with MUFG and their partners, brush up their business plan, strengthen their marketing, and accelerate their growth.
