Health Hero’s seed round was raised by several crypto-focused VC firms including Animoca Brands, Polygon, Sequoia Capital Scouts, Blockchain Founders Fund, One Planet VC, IoTex, etc.
Managing Partner at the Blockchain Founders Fund Aly Madhavji spoke on the investment into Health Hero’s blockchain initiative, claiming that the app will educate people on Web3 technologies, and, at the same time, help them stay in shape.
Likewise, CEO of Health Hero Anthony Diaz chimed in with insight into the future of the project, stating:
"With our blockchain game API, we seek to involve the game and developer community around the world to launch twenty other Health Hero companies over the next year where any country around the world can have their own ‘Play-to-earn health’ service. We plan to incubate and accelerate these businesses as well."
The way the P2E wellness app will work is it will allow users to connect their accounts to some of the best known fitness applications like Apple Health, Google Fit, and Fit Bit. Health Hero’s app will offer rewards for completed challenges, and, for every 100K steps, the app will provide users with reimbursments for food.
