Blockchain-based health platform that links people with health and wellness specialists to enhance their health is no longer a far-fetched reality. An ever-increasing number of health tech and wellness startups are joining the bandwagon of crypto and NFT rewards for their users. Joining the likes of Lithuanian startup Lympo and London-based Sweatcoin, Romanian health tech platform SanoPass has now developed a digital portal to explore Web3.0 and the Metaverse for access to health services in Romania and neighbouring Moldavia.
The new sanopass.io platform marks the launch of a collection of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT), SanoCubs, on the blockchain of the Romanian platform Elrond.
Each of the 10,000 SanoCubs NFTs in the collection will be unique and, in addition to the digital art component, comes bundled with a full subscription to medical and fitness services, exclusive content and rewards for the users who lead a healthy lifestyle and prioritise prevention.
The collection announced by the startup will be launched on 1 April with a mint price of 2 EGLD (eGOLD). The NFT owners will receive a full subscription to medical and fitness services, as well as exclusive access to a premium platform based on content developed directly by doctors, fitness coaches, nutritionists, and other health experts.
In the second half of 2023, NFT holders will receive health tokens to pay for wellness services directly with this cryptocurrency.
Andrei Vasile, managing partner, SanoPass said: “Implementing NFT-based technology will allow us to introduce the concept of smart contracting to the conservative medical market, provide a real-life utility for cryptocurrencies and create a community that prioritises wellbeing, whose members will get rewards for their healthy lifestyle and preventative medicine habits. Elrond's technology now makes it possible for the wellbeing industry to move to the next level. People can now choose to look after their health and now be rewarded with the same type of services - health and wellbeing.”
Felix Crișan, co-founder and CTO, Netopia and consultant in the SanoPass Metaverse project said: “The blockchain technology is sought after by businesses from essential industries and we can actively help our community, and also lay the groundwork for a project that will eliminate the barriers between technology and the conservative medical market.”
