DELIGHT Corporation (Chiyoda, Tokyo), a sports business company, has announced that it had made the beta version of its DELIGHT.fit app - a health care smartphone application which allows users to earn points, known popularly as "Genki Royalty Points" ("Genki" means energy), through exercising - available for iOS and Android platforms as of December 12th (Monday). As one of the world's most prominent aging nations, Japan is confronting various social issues such as increases in medical care expenses. And with more and more people living into their 100s, many recognize the need and importance of maintaining healthy long lives. Meanwhile, although the effectiveness of exercise towards maintaining health and combating lifestyle-related diseases has come to be acknowledged, the numbers of people who exercise regularly are still limited. This app converts the energy spent playing sports or exercising into points, and is able to input them onto an Ethereum blockchain-based platform. Looking forward, through marathon races sponsored by our company, and through collaborative efforts with future prospective partners, etc., through the utilization of a "social infrastructure based on exercise," and through services which award prizes and money (including cryptocurrencies), we will help in the facilitation and promotion of exercise. Furthermore, if users choose to forfeit their winnings we will advance measures to allow donations to be made to charitable organizations on a global scale.
