Don’t Hate the Player, Hate the Game: Solving the Dating Industry’s Biggest Problem

Reputation is the oldest currency known to man, which is why a rose by any other name will always remain a rose.

But how much is yours worth?

Reputation as a currency is dogged by two missing critical elements; the absence of any quantifiable mechanism for measuring it, and a safe, immutable protocol for exchanging values. Blockchain technology is set to address the later, but what about the former?

Can I trust you to keep a secret?

A decentralized platform is currently the only way to secure information. This is due to the fact that the information is not in the possession of a single entity and therefore not vulnerable to the single point of failure attacks. But that’s not all there is to the revolutionary potential of the blockchain.

Blockchain records are not only distributed across geographically dispersed systems known as nodes, they also exist in a constant state of self-governance and consensus that constantly checks on information stored within itself, the nodes, and the Blockchain for homogeneity. This means that even if a node is compromised, the hundreds of thousands of uncompromised copies spread across the globe will be used by the blockchain to resolve the conflict, repairing the node. Overlaying all these mechanisms are cryptographic protocols, securing identities and enabling P2P exchange of values with no third-party influences.

This is the foundation on which’s disruptive blockchain-based dating is being built on.

What is Love?

Love is the ultimate expression. It’s the eternal bond that connects two souls together, keeping them together. It also remains one of those rare qualities that cannot be bought, rather it is freely given and gotten. However, whilst it cannot be brought or exchanged through conventional currencies, love can be had for the low, low price of a simple reputation.

But how can you guarantee reputation? How can you qualify and quantify reputation? How do you leverage it for love? is how.

Hicky is a dating platform that uses the power of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies to create an open, better and transparent platform for online dating. The platform tokenizes all that love requires – trust, reputation, privacy, and confidence – through its innovative HKY token and presents it as a competitive alternative to traditional and closed-network dating platforms. The token offers a complete tokenized economy that enables users to:

  • Pay for P2P interactions
  • Get incentivized for votings
  • Get rewards for referrals
  • Get rewards for good behaviors
  • Get incentivized for higher verification rankings

Simply, HKY creates a dating platform that incentivizes good behavior and ensures that people are verified and personal data is safe. The modular utility token powers all interactions on the platform enabling users to securely interact with each other backed by smart contracts.’s enterprising solution facilitates the secure exchange of encrypted communication between users, ensuring the privacy of exchanges. And the platform’s forward-thinking visual and auditory identity verification system eliminates dubious reputation and that game those players love to blame.

  • Social dating is vaporware. The Online Dating Industry needs innovations: it is all about strict personality similarity between prospective daters!

    “Mr Right or Ms Right” or “the one” or “your soulmate” or “the perfect match” does not exist!
    It will only exist a pool of compatible persons, not more than that.
    No online dating site can promise you to find “the one” or “your soulmate” or a “perfect match”.
    Moreover the person you are looking for does not exist or if it exist, he/she does not want to meet you because your are not compatible.

    Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.

    Breaking “the online dating sound barrier” is to achieve at least:
    3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
    12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
    48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
    100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!

    High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
    Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.
