Matchpool is a platform that creates human connections.
Our vision is to build a platform for matchmakers by allowing anyone to create their own community ‘pool’ for free and invite their members to their pool. End users of our platform will be able to find connections on the app by joining the pools that best cater to their needs.
We are building the first platform for mainstream matchmaking powered by a cryptographic token economy. Tokens (Guppies) can be purchased or sold with real money. Matchpool’s trusted algorithm rewards users automatically across the platform.
Rules & Rewards
Anyone can open and manage their own ‘pool’ and become a community / pool owner. A pool owner can set their own ‘pool rules’ and terms. Pool owners are rewarded when they create matches inside of their pool.
Leisure / Lifestyle
To make the world more synchronistic and connected within communities by creating a fair, incentivised based community platform that will enable anyone to open their own community inside the network. An internal reward mechanism will help facilitate connections in a positive way.
First Use Case
THE DATING INDUSTRY
It’s very expensive to create and maintain a dating app today and therefore there are very few niche dating apps which survive.
Online dating apps use subscription based models that do not align with the interest of the user. A dating app wants to keep a user on the platform to optimize revenues. This conflict of interest creates an unbalanced and unfair system.
Managers of niche social communities do not have a way to monetize their network.
Matchpool is a decentralized matchmaking protocol which uses group dynamics to help participants match with each other. It can also be used as a more generic platform for any kind of paid membership community which can clearly define two sides of an interaction or market. This paper presents the elements of the platform: the Ethereum smart contracts which handle the trust-sensitive ownership and reward structures, as well as the core game logic which makes it work. Finally we lay out a two year roadmap for launching and scaling the network, including a detailed specification of the Guppy token (GUP), which will play an integral role in its development.
