The “Danske Bank Vilnius Marathon “, which took place in Vilnius, Lithuania, on September 9, is the first sports event where participants were rewarded with Lympo (LYM) cryptocurrency tokens.

The more you run, the more you get

Ada Jonuse, leader and co-founder of the Lympo , explains that the platform will compensate runners for each kilometer they run during the marathon. Later, after runners will collect tokens, users will be able to purchase sports goods within Lympo app. User-friendly platform will also help the footwear and sports accessories manufacturers directly reach users on the same Lympo app.

ANTANAS GUOGA, also known as TonyG, is one of LYMPO advisors.

Attendees who completed full-range marathon earned cryptocurrency tokens worth of €9.20. Those who completed a shorter, 10 km distance called “Lympo” run, earned 160 LYM tokens (€ 3.60). Of course the value of the tokens changes all the time so the worth may rise or fall a little every day.
