Hosts and helpers are incentivized to propose matches between members of the dating pool through a rewards system.
When successful matches are made, the person who proposed the match earns a portion of fees from the pool.
In the first incarnation, Matchpool will use a collection of Ethereum smart contracts to manage collection and distribution of funds.
However, a significant portion of the user-facing mobile application, including functionality such as messaging, data storage and user profile and pool creation, will be hosted on centralized servers.
Here it is worth noting that controls will be in place to ensure only high-quality users receive newcomer credits.
