The fundraiser also saw participation from a number of prominent investors, including the NEAR Foundation, Electric Capital, Goodwater Capital, Spartan Capital, Blockdream Ventures, GSR Ventures, Jump, and OKX. Polkadot co-founder Bjorn Wagner, Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal, and founder of Civic Vinny Lingham, also backed the round.

Oleg Fomenko, the co-founder of Sweat Economy, commented on the capital and noted that it will provide the firm a significant boost in shaping the community, as its new coin will allow the 5 million users of the platform to earn crypto. He added:

"Our mission is to make the world more physically active. Anything we do with our project is there to bring in more motivation for people to put one foot in front of another."

Sweat Economy is aiming to inspire users to improve their health by exercising and earning money at the same time. Currently, the app is completely free-to-play.

The company also noted that SWEAT will be built on the NEAR blockchain and will be available as an ERC-20 (Ethereum) token and a NEP-141 (NEAR) token. To earn one SWEAT token, used for redeeming branded products, digital services, and donations, users will have to take only 1000 steps.
