We were inspired by SportX, a crypto sports betting exchange. Since the weather is a conversational topic popular among almost all demographics, we recognized a large addressable market. We realized that the addition of crypto betting, combined with a simplistic UI, would interest existing wallet users, as well as provide an opportunity to attract new users to dApps.
