About SynchroLife

SynchroLife is a restaurant search and recommendation platform where food lovers are rewarded for sharing accurate information and high-quality reviews of restaurants. SynchroLife aims to create a global platform of trustworthy, accurate, up-to-date, and helpful restaurant information, as well as a personalized search and recommendation engine.

SynchroLife

The SynchroLife app was first released for beta-testing in Japan, at which point  users were rewarded not with tokens or any kind of monetary incentive, but with in-app gamification mechanisms (“experience points”, “titles”, “emblems”, etc.). Even so, and with limited personalized recommendation capabilities, over 32,000 participants joined and over 35,000 restaurants were added to the database during this period. In June 2017 SynchroLife released the first international beta version of its app for iOS and Android in four languages (English, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Japanese) and in over 155 countries – this version is currently available on the App Store and Google Play. The company is also developing a website (set to launch first in Japan).

SynchroLife analyzes the restaurant ratings, view history, likes, pins, search history, follows, followers and other user actions within the app to provide users with personalized restaurant recommendations and search results that match their individual preferences and tastes. Recommendations and results are curated in accordance with the actions other users with similar preferences, based on a similarity score. SynchroLife restaurant reviews are based on individual ratings of 1-5 stars or a 5+ Special rating, and users can view individual ratings and read other users’ reviews. Users are also provided with a daily recommendation on the app’s home screen.

SynchroLife

SynchroLife will soon be launching a token crowdsale for its Ethereum-based SynchroCoin to fund the continued development of its platform. SynchroCoin tokens will be used within the platform to reward users who provide accurate information, high-quality reviews, good photos, and other content about restaurants from all over the world. Users will then be able to use the tokens to buy restaurant coupons and gift cards, tip other users or even make payments at participating restaurants.

SynchroLife plans to focus its development efforts first on growing the active user base, increasing the amount and improving the accuracy of information on the platform, and developing the personalized search and recommendation engine. Once the platform has grown, SynchroLife will also focus on developing an Online-to-Offline (O2O) marketing platform for restaurants so as to include user rewards, coupons, advertisements, and payment options. This will include CRM features that enable restaurants to attract and reward target audiences. Since the plan is to build a token-based economy that allows users to pay their restaurant bill with SynchroCoin tokens, restaurants will only be charged a small percentage of these transactions as results-based compensation. Users who submitted high-quality reviews or information about the restaurant will also receive a small portion of that percentage as a reward.

SynchroLife

SynchroLife’s revenue model is based on $3 monthly subscriptions for premium user membership (giving access to special features, discounts, and rewards), $1-$5 micropayments for coupons and gift cards sold on the platform, results-based compensation from advertising restaurants, $30-$50 monthly subscription for use of CRM tools by restaurants, general advertising revenue, and commissions from cryptocurrency payments.
