October 21st, 2022 - Health Hero is a web3 health engagement platform that rewards users with free healthcare and healthy food for staying healthy. Tapping into an emerging $1 trillion+ web3 healthcare market, they are providing an electronic wellness record as a decentralized way for users to own their own full and complete well-being information.
Backed by top investors such as Animoca Brands, Polygon, Blockchain Founders Fund, Sequioa Capital Scouts, IoTex, among other world class investors, Health Hero is introducing health-to-earn which is the next iteration of the emerging play-to-earn and move-to-earn markets. Project such as STEPN, Genopets, and Sweatcoin started the move-to-earn market and that sets up an entry point to the web3 healthcare space.
Now, Health Hero expands those capabilities by including 1 billion+ data points into the earning potential. “Health has always been wealth, now its an asset. We also know that if health insurance did not exist, we would not invent it. We believe tying reward and recognition to holistic is better for global health and psysiological and spiritual information should have been the foundation to health data records since day 1. Your life data belongs in your pocket securly, not scattered across a dozen entities” - Anthony Diaz, Founder & CEO of Health Hero.
Finally, a Bitcoin for healthcare
Health Hero has multiple tokens within the ecosystem; Go!Bots (NFTs), W-NFT (NFTs), Go!Loot (NFTs) and $HLTHY, a native utility token. Users must purchase a Go!Bot NFT to get started. Go!Bots are a collection of 8,888 parcels of land within the metaverse called, Health Hero City. Owning a Go!Bot allows users to start earning $HLTHY as well as additional branding, ecommerce, and game playing within the metaverse.
A user will start earning $HLTHY via a variety of ways within the platform. Steps, social actions, activities, and uploading grocery receipts are just a few ways a user will earn $HLTHY. The token also enables users to then use it for in-game mechanics. These in-game mechanics allows the user to boost their Go!Bot character and parcel of land to compete at other levels and raise the chance of greater rewards.
Additionally, loot provides the user with the ability to purchase loot items that will boost their character as well, but also earn power-ups for the platform’s mini-games.
Mini-games are yet another way for users to earn extra $HLTHY. Health Hero’s mini-games are driven by a decentralized gaming console where developers around the world use their Game API to build health games using wellness and well-being data. For example, the Go!Rocket game can be powered by steps, sleep, or mindfulness. Based on milestones, users are able to fill up the fuel tank and start navigating the rocket all the way to the moon.
As users earn $HLTHY, they are able to unlock access to free healthcare and healthy food via health-to-earn. Health Hero also has three staking programs; conventional, telehealth, and cash-back - all serving a loyalty tiers.
Conventional staking awards a 19% APY. When a user stakes for telehealth, and based on tiers, they can earn up to 2 years of free telehealth services that provide them with 24/7 board-certified doctor online primary care visits, access to 60+ no-cost prescription medications for most common ailments, and add up to 5 family members to their plan at no additional cost. Note: this option is only available for US residents.
Users can also stake for cash back. One simply uploads their grocery receipt picture. Health Hero uses artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms to parse out healthy items. The user then receives a percentage of $HLTHY in cash back for purchasing healthy food items. As they stake into the program, they can earn up to 75% cashback, depending on staking tiers.
The future roadmap brings even more value to the users. Access to international telehealth, more creator economics, builders program, metaverse, mental health via telehealth, art/coding contests, giveaways, and expansion of earnings economics, are just a few examples of opportunities Health Hero users will have available for them within the next upcoming months.
