Dating With Benefits ICO: What You Need to Know
Dating With Benefits is a new service which uses cutting edge blockchain technology to help wealthy bachelors and bachelorettes find love. The startup calls itself ‘the future of sugar dating’ and relies on a blockchain-based ecosystem to connect consenting adults with one another in a safe and secure environment.
‘BENEFIT’ tokens serve as the native currency for the innovative dating platform and, the more of these tokens a user purchases, the higher up he or she will appear in the search results. In other words, money talks. After all, Dating With benefits is a sugar dating app.
DWB’s ICO is currently in progress and, at time of writing, has about fifteen days left. The website describes the sale as ‘private’, but by clicking on ‘INVEST NOW’ and registering by providing your name and email address, you can donate to the DWB cause.
How does it work?
“Dating with Benefits is the first-ever sugar dating platform powered by blockchain technology. It’s a platform where people can be direct about their dating wants and needs, and instantly define the relationship they want. Our profiles allow members to easily state intentions and expectations, and agree to them through blockchain-enabled smart contracts. Finally, you can get the relationship you’ve always wanted.”
DWB solves a lot of the problems normally associated with online dating, specifically those that occur on ‘sugar dating’ sites. For example, fake profiles and a lack of reliable verification methods are common issues with online dating. Blockchain technology helps eradicate these sorts of annoyances. How so?
Well, first, users upload a picture of their face, and then DWB’s platform takes a video scan. It scans, matches, and verifies using facial recognition. The user’s data is then encrypted and saved with public and private keys. After additional security and social media checks, the system writes the hashed, signed data of real-id verification to the blockchain. Clever, huh?
Other cool features…
Other cool features include a reputation system which allows daters to leave pre-set feedback comments for other users, kind of like how you leave ratings and reviews on Uber, Airbnb, and Trip Advisor. The system only allows positive feedback to keep things upbeat so if a user has a negative experience they can simply opt-out of commenting.
Additionally, users have the option to both sign a sexual consent smart contract to avoid any unwanted advances or misunderstandings. The system also facilitates date deposits paid for in BENEFIT tokens, to help ensure people keep to their word and show up when they say they are going to. If real world plans get in the way, users must forgo the deposit to the affected party.
DWB has no hidden fees – all the charges are upfront. And, last but certainly not least, because DWB runs on blockchain technology, all users’ data is incredibly secure so there’s almost no chance of personal data being leaked. This has been a problem for other dating sites, such as Ashley Madison, in the past.
