is a decentralized dating and matchmaking protocol, which 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.
will consist user generated Pools of individuals. These Pools can be
visualized as a cross between Slack channels and Meetup groups,
invite-only groups owned and run by devoted users who act as
matchmakers. Upon joining the platform, the user will be asked to
provide a number of describing factors. This data is encrypted, and will
be used for the user profile and for the purpose of offering the user
with preferable custom pools.
using our Matchlock feature, which keeps a 50:50 ratio between X and Y,
every Pool in the platform remains attractive. If a certain number of X
users enters the pool, then the matchlock will stop more X from
entering until the same number of Yâs arrive. These Matchlock rules can
also be parameterized to any use case where any arbitrary market
polarity is required. Also there is no restriction for the X and Y side
of the matchlock to be opposites in order to serve any community
whatsoever. It is up to the Pool's founder to configure the matchlock
parameters according to the kind of community they wish to create.
will implement a front-end interface, which will allow users to search
for favorable pools in different areas, matched with different
interests. Users can search various factors to see if something fits. In
the on-boarding process, they will also be shown a list of pools in
their area, which fits their particular demographics and interests.
GUP Tokens & Matchpool Rewards
Matchpool users will divide into two catagories â Joiners & Hosts.
who wishes 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 token Guppies (GUP). While in the Pool, nature
will take its course and all members would be able to interact publicly
on private channels in a way resembling Slack's interface.
On the other side, users can also play the role of Hosts and Matchmakers.
The host will be the one who opens a custom Pool and gets dividends from its revenues.
or Helpers as they are defined in the system can propose matches
between two other joiners who they believe would be good partners. Those
two joiners are then notified and in case 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 for shares of the Pools subscription and monthly fees, paid with GUP.
first 200,000 Users will get rewarded with GUPs upon registration
enabling them to make their first steps in the platform.
are another way Matchpool users can get rewarded. These are basically
add-ons created by developers who want add to the Matchpool protocol. In
practice, Dapplets work similar to Slack plugins but can enhance the
experience in a number of ways. One example would be a Dapplet, which
implements âTinderâ functionality: users can swipe through other users.
If one of their apps creates a match of some kind for example: if a
"Blind Date" game creates a real match, then the Dapplet developers are
rewarded similarly to Matchmakers.
ICO*Matchpool ICO will take place in late March 2017 and last for 6 weeks (Exact date will be soon announced)*
ICO terms and bonuses
We believe our first and early supporters should be rewarded for their support
With that notion in mind, we decided on the following ratios of GUP to be rewarded in each time frame for every 1 ETH pledged:
the number of GUP tokens distributed is limited to 60M (60% of total
100M in circulation), the total ETH expected to be raised assuming all
tokens will be sold, will range from approximately 462K to 600K,
depending on the time of funds being pledged and the relative bonus that
applies to that stage. If and when all 60M GUP will be sold, the smart
contract will cease accepting ETH and the ICO will be officially over
case that by the end of the ICO duration not all GUP tokens will be
sold, the remaining unsold tokens will be distributed pro-rata between
In case a minimum cap of 30K ETH is not reached, all pledged ETH will be sent back to Participants sending addresses
Issuance & Distribution
Guppies tokens created in Matchpool ICO will be allocated as follows:
