The blockchain technology has been used for many things since it was invented but one aspect in which this technology is rarely applied is the social connecting of people using the blockchain. Today we will review Matcheos, a platform which wants to do just that.
What Is Matcheos?
Matcheos is a matching platform built on EOS blockchain. This is not (only) a dating a dating platform, mind you, as you can do much more by using the platform provided by this company to meet different types of people who match your preferences.
Obviously, you can use Matcheos for dating. You can browse through the profiles of people you like and then submit bids for them if you would like to date them or at least to get to know them better. Employers or employees can also browse people who are of their interest and submit bids. This has a great potential for HR recruiters.
Finally, you will also be able to make friends on the platform and use it for any activity that you want that requires you to find people, really.
Matcheos is an open source project and you can find it on Github if you want.
How Matcheos Connecting Human Community Works
Matcheos works using the blockchain technology provided by the EOS platform to mix a bidding process and smart contracts for the creation of a network in which people using the EOS blockchain will be able to meet by optimizing their preferences via bids and by using smart contracts to enforce good behavior on the platform.
As it was stated above, you can use this platform for many reasons. You have to set up your profile after you have made your account and then you will be able to set your preferences and to state if you are using the platform for dating, work or any other activity. Algorithms help you to find the right people for you to meet.
To find people, you have to browse and bid. When you find a profile that you want, you can bid a certain quantity of EOS tokens. If the person accepts the match, the tokens are handled via a smart contract, if the person ignores you, they come back to the bidder. Higher bidders can indicate a higher preference.
If both people accept a bid, they send their bids via smart contracts to each other. After the meetings occur, the smart contracts release the EOS back to the people who bid. This is when the system designed to keep people behaving enters. If one person does not behave well, it will lose its tokens.
This platform is only in its initial development and it still has a long way to go. As it is being made via an open source project, it can be hard to state how much time will be needed until Matcheos is finally ready for a final launch.
How To Invest In Matcheos?
You cannot actually invest in Matcheos as if this was a private company because Matcheos is an open source project. To use this platform, you will need EOS tokens, which you can easily get in the market.
After that, all that you have to do is to create your profile and have EOS tokens on your wallet to use the services of the company.
Should you use Matcheos? To answer that, we have to look at this platform carefully and evaluate its pros and cons with patience. Matcheos can be an interesting way to meet people. The project still has a long way to go, but it can be a good option for the people who are tired of Tinder and LinkedIn and want to use another platform for these kinds of activities.
On the other hand, Matcheos will make you spend your money to meet people and you will lose it if things go wrong. That might work as an incentive to behave yourself but it can be easily misused. Because of this, if look at this angle, this company is somewhat less interesting.
The choice is yours if you want to invest in Matcheos or not. The platform might not be perfect, but it seems to be very functional, so it is up to you to be sure about how you are going to proceed.
