Matchpool: Fall In Love with the Blockchain

Was your valentine’s day a bit of a disappointment?

Well lucky for you it’s 2017 and the time has come to introduce the immutability of the blockchain to matchmaking and dating apps.

There is a new blockchain startup for decentralized dating and matchmaking called Matchpool.
I think this is such a cool way to bring blockchain tech and crypto currency to the masses.

The ICO for Matchpool begins on March 25 and will last for 28 days. Mark your calendar so you have the chance to be a bit of a venture capitalist on this one.

Here’s the low down from bitcointalk
Matchpool uses group dynamics in order to help as many participants as possible to find love. It can also be used as a more generic platform for any kind of paid membership community, which can clearly define two sides of a desired interaction or market.
Matchpool users will divide into two catagories – joiners and hosts. Joiners who wish to enter a pool of their choice, will have to pay the pool's requisite entry fee, which will be defined at the creation of that Pool by the Pool's Host.

In addition to this one-time registration fee, a monthly membership fee will be paid to the Pool.
All payments will be held in an Ether based smart contract and will be processed using Matchpool's network own tokens, Guppies (GUP).
Users can also play the role of hosts and matchmakers. The host is the one who opens a custom Pool and gets dividends from its revenues. Matchmakers can propose matches between two other joiners who they believe would be good partners. Those two joiners are then notified and if they both accept, the event is added to their public notebook, and the matchmaker get rewarded.

Both the host of the pool and its matchmakers are entitled to shares of the pools subscription and monthly fees, paid with the guppies token
Also, the first 200,000 Users will get rewarded with GUPs

They’ve also opened up the possibilities for dapplets. These are basically add-ons created by developers who want add to the Matchpool protocol. One example would be a dapplet that implements “Tinder” functionality, so users can swipe through other users. If one of their apps creates a match, then the dapplet developers are rewarded similarly to Matchmakers.

the ICO looks so incredibly non-rewarding and not worth it in my opinion.

I would have to echo the comment @thecryptofiend left up on top of the list though, but the video is indeed very well done. Thanks for sharing @heiditravels and please let me know if there is an advantage over what is actually available on the net or otherwise. Not that I am looking for anyone personally, but it would still be interesting to know... Are you underlining the idea that everyone as a matchmaker potential could make money for introducing successful relationship building?

Thanks a bunch, as always, keep your smile and namaste :)

Why hasn't @steemit hired you (or any other woman) as their full time spokesperson?

Dash has Amanda, Waves has Grace and Steemit has been billed as the cryptocurrency with the largest female userbase.

Afaik, Steem has yet to have a female representative on an official basis speak for them. If that is not factual, please correct me.

I'm not making some political statement about hiring women, I simply think it's common sense marketing wise, for a platform claiming to have (my perception) the largest female userbase, to actually hire a female to market their product; at least a little. ;)

Because they're clueless about marketing.

Interesting. I don't see the advantage of matchmaking on a blockchain though. Seems a bit pointless. Great video though:)

There is no advantage to doing it on a blockchain though.

I think it's cool that it gives more people the opportunity to make money in an alternative way (matchmakers) And if you're successful you can prove it and vice versa if you're single and wanted to verify the validity or skills of other matchmakers.

I understand but I don't think there is any advantage that this would have over regular dating apps. I will be interested to see if it succeeds.

ICOs are often scams... I dont have time to investigate another new shitcoin...

But heidi... dating + blockchain is a good idea!! Have always been... blockchain can disrupt and improve any market.

I think I got too old to benefit from a dating group app on the blockchain even if this ICO are legit...

And please think about it... there was no ICO on bitcoin and on steemit.
