BENGALURU, India, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- In its maiden fundraising round, Bengaluru-based Move-to-Earn startup Fitmint (web3 app where users can earn rewards in cryptocurrency just by walking, running or working out) has announced raising seed funding of US$ 1.6 Million from multiple VCs and institutional investors.
