But no matter how good your idea is if the right team is not behind it to make it happen, then most likely the entire project will fail.
This reasoning led to the managing team to seek experts in different areas to develop the best possible product. With a deep understanding of blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency market, the Atlas Group of Companies has developed StepChain: a revolutionary and responsible fitness app that offers rewards in exchange for your steps count. Based on the data extracted from the pedometer and phone accelerometer, users obtain great rewards that can be exchanged for goods and services from the fitness and sports industry, with specific discounts or even allowing users to make charitable donations with the rewards earned.
