I had the same question, I was wondering if maybe you saw something I missed, and apparently not. But this seems contradicted by Vinay Gupta being apparently one of the main concept guys and also a long-time crypto person. That seems like a pretty uncharitable reading. In a better world, the people with the money would find the concept itself valuable and not need the blockchain window dressing to be interested. This is a scam on the investors , not on the users.
So they are manipulating the investors to make them put their money into something they would not otherwise have invested in, and the manipulation itself adds no value to the asset, and in fact likely subtracts it, due to all the costs and risks of having to implement a new blockchain and hope that it is adopted. This sounds like more or less the same type of thing. It strikes me as quite like a book editor insisting a writer insert a love triangle into an already-fine story.
Have made a long comment, explaining my involvement and perspective, but it seems to be stuck in a moderation queue? Oh, perhaps then Scott just almost never looks at it, unless he wants to dig out a specific post by someone who got his attention. Although I would argue that for most users, that is functionally identical to not having a moderation queue. Yes, this blog does have an Akismet -powered moderation queue, so your original comment could be stuck in it. Thankfully, it looks like you successfully posted your long comment later, further down in the comments.
Yes, I came up with the mechanism a couple of years ago, then chanced upon a team that looked like they had the rest of the pieces necessary to make it go. It was a very fortuitous meeting! Intermediate position between scam and not-scam: It uses the blockchain to build hype now, but once the bitcoin bubble bursts, they will switch back to more conventional technology. Remember, the only function of a blockchain is to avoid double-spend attacks without trusted authorities.
If a trusted authority exists, then she can always verify transactions with much less technical overhead. Though a transferrable claim that can be double spent probably has little intrinsic value, rendering the need to avoid mis-spends moot. This is really important for money-like digital assets, i. Even very trustworthy people or organizations may not be trustworthy when millions in value a day is being spent. Or alternatively the people may be trustworthy, but their computer systems may not.
Even though the trusted authority may fail, the smart contract can limit the space of outcomes to a specific hyper-plane. The sports score publisher can declare that the Jaguars won, even if the Patriots actually did. Hence this lowers the incentive to cheat. Scalable and reliable internet infrastructure is really expensive and painful to maintain. You spend millions a year paying DBAs boatloads of money so they wake up at 3 AM when your servers crash.
Operating a public facing internet service is like defending a fortress in a zombie apocalypse. In fact way way more problems, because blockchain consensus comes with an order of magnitude complexity than even very scalable centralized databases. The cost is certainly less visible, because the miners are paid either in the form of seigniorage or transaction fees by the users.
That does not seem right to me. Both physical money and the banking system already have perfectly good ways to prevent double spending. There was no reason to invent a new technology to prevent that. Preventing double-spending attacks is just a necessary precondition for a blockchain to be usable.
When applied to a currency: His point is that although blockchains are the most prominent distributed databases at the moment, there are other choices that are often better. Both physical money and the banking system are, in their current forms, dependent on large centralized institutions that are ultimately backed by the power of the state.
Because the whole point is to create a new currency. Not in selling mate advertising. The daters are supposed to be the critical mass that gets the bubble started. If you look at the issues with OkCupid right now you see the problems with a centralized ledger. I laughed around After that click, a checkbox appears to add a timecode. Stars can be bought with dollars and vice versa, so popular users can actually earn money reading all the messages sent to them.
Meanwhile, I agree that the blockchain aspect seems pointless albeit very on-trend. Stars seem like a pretty much centralised fiat? So is there a good reason for it to be a cryptocurrency?
I guess it was at least a year ago, maybe more. Was it this thread with a comment by Andrew Hunter? The last time I actually did it, a hot friend of mine and I played Trading Places: But I generally propose a one-sample test: I can provide you with a couple old profiles of mine for baseline copy. I give you a list of, say, profiles to message. Again, you have to say true things about me. It might be this one where they discuss that adultery dating website scandal, which operated off of a similar principle?:.
For a conversation between two members, one of the members — almost always the man — must pay five credits to initiate the conversation. Any follow-up messages between the two members are free after the communication has been initiated. Ashley Madison also has a real-time chat feature that is metered. Credits are utilised to pay for a certain time allotment of chat. Women can send messages to men for free, but the men must pay to read them.
Men must always pay to send messages to women. The system is mentioned, but discussion only lasts for two comments. Is there a keyword you can remember that might not have been used in the post above? The discussion was about a hypothetical model of spending credits to send messages and receiving credits by reading them. I just read that post where everyone gave Andrew comments on how to get more dates and all the advice is answering the wrong question, assuming you are looking for a relationship.
Try to appeal to the kind of girl you would actually be interested in dating. If you like sporty outdoorsy types then pics of you hiking and whatnot. If you like theater geeks pics of that. When I look at profile pictures obviously overall attractiveness is factored in, but then I usually try to imagine what dating the person would be like; do we have enough in common, want the same things, what could I learn from them, would they like my friends, are they gonna judge me for xyz?
If you are just generically trying to maximise your responses you are bound to be getting responses from the wrong type of people. You should be judging your success based on the quality of the respondents not quantity of the responses. I very strongly disagree with your entire premise. I feel like for most of human history this was not the case. In most societies, people solved for one variable status and occasionally maybe also a second physical attractiveness.
Finding a successful enough, attractive enough, person you can stand to be around who can also stand to be around you is hard enough, in and of itself. It gets a hell of a lot harder when you add 10 more variables. Now, everyone wants a successful enough, attractive enough person who also likes the same TV shows, shares the same political beliefs, works in a similar career field, has the same appetite for travel, etc. They met through some combination of random chance and general interest.
And then we wonder why these people are so miserable and alone? As soon as you get someone who can stand you, go for it. I know plenty of serial monogamists who have been single for less than a year from age ; I have no problem with that and they are generally not the type on dating websites or at least not until they get divorced.
My perception is that most people interact with dating profiles looking for reasons to rule someone out, not reasons to like them. I deleted pictures and removed sentences talking about what made me unique — to be replaced by nothing , and started getting more responses. IF you legitimately do have deal-breakers that you think are reasonable then fine, feel free to include stuff that will rule those people out i.
What pictures make me look xyz? That makes dating dynamics for you very very different than for straight dudes. The typical dynamic on these sites is that women looking for men get deluged with messages expressing interest.
We can throw those out right away. Which incentivizes reading profiles as a way of filtering potential partners, not as a way of finding potential partners. That changes the optimal approach on the other end. You might try googling site: Definite upfront payments and intermittent rewards! I mean, I see the point. I do get it. People seem to prefer the economics to be cleanly polarized: The middle ground seems to be acutely uncomfortable.
Not a reaction I had expected, but understandable enough. A lot of folks seem to doubt my motives in designing this. But, at the end of the day, this thing was not designed as an engine of exploitation for anybody, and I very much doubt it will be such an engine in practice. I hope that faith is not misplaced! Well, you presented it as a way to redistribute money to women, to make women profit significantly from the bitcoin bubble economy. You also presented it as a way for really rich men to display their wealth.
Both of these goals can only be achieved if men make significant payments, not just small payments to get more attention. Some people, not illogically, assume that men will only do that if they get something significant in return, preferably guaranteed. Furthermore, they assume that these men will weigh your offer against the other options and choose the best bang for the buck perhaps literally.
You seem to believe that there are large numbers of very desirable women that are extremely desperate for rich men, so they will flock to Luna, to date men with poor social skills, but with lots of money. In other words, the western equivalent of Eastern European mail order brides. The problem with this belief is that it is fairly obvious that very desirable western women are way better off than very desirable Eastern European women, in just about every way including the quality of men they can attract without going the Luna route.
So the quality of women that Luna can attract will presumably be way below that of mail order brides. Furthermore, it seems likely that Luna will have more scammers than mail order services, decreasing the value proposition to men even more. However, on this forum we are not known for assuming that other people know what they are doing. I think this is a good point. In the West, a man has to be pretty well off before he can pull girls based on his money.
At that point, the man may as well just go to a sugar daddy dating web site. You seem to believe that there are large numbers of very desirable women that are extremely desperate for rich men. Yeah, as I pointed out up-thread, most women with a bona fide interest in math or science already have far more male attention than they know what to do with.
I have a female family member like this. She is 20 years old, not overweight, and studying science at an Ivy League college. She is about a 4. Every boy in her Dungeons and Dragons club wants to date her; boys in her science classes want to study with her; boys offer to walk her home from the lab; etc. Why would someone like that bother with internet dating? Meanwhile, after reading this thread, out of curiousity I started reading the blog at seekingarrangement.
Apparently there is a huge problem there with phony sugar-babies who ask men for advances, air-fare, etc. These are the types of girls who would be attracted to Luna. Low quality people of one sex tend to drive out high-quality people of the other, which in turn drives out high-quality people of the first sex, and so on. In fact, one can think of the Ivy Leagues as a very expensive dating and networking club.
Or I suppose, it subverts some regulatory hurdle, e. Lots of places let pay money for various forms of tokens. The only places that let you win tokens that you can turn back into cash are Casinos. Obviously, you should pay for dating sites that charge for success, not services. Much like the Chinese doctors of oldie times whom patients paid regularly when they were healthy and not paid when they were ill.
Of course the problem would be people succesfully finding a partner but lying about it. An offline dating agency I know chose an intermediate method. They organize a lot of dinners and dance events and what not all included. When you find your SO, you stop coming. So the faster they help you find one the higher the margin is on that initial fee.
In that sort of setup people who find an SO will just not really lie about just to get some more free dinners it is really unlikely. You can use the site for free for a month, then you have to pay only once per account, forever to keep using the site. So while people would game the system, overall the incentives would be roughly right.
Enough money upfront that I was vaguely terrified of the idea. One with a nice gal who was too scatter-brained to be able to make effective plans for a second date and I suspected was high at that point. The other who showed up 15 minutes late, drank like a fish, and drove home intoxicated despite my offer to pay for a cab. Do the free online dating sites work on ad revenue? If the point is to keep the number of messages to women or very popular men at a manageable level by making senders pay for messages and receivers get paid to read messages, why do cryptocurrencies need to get involved at all?
Or if not Paypal, then just regular cheques or direct deposit or whatever. If you make it into a token economy, it becomes harder for prosecutors to claim that your website is just an online brothel. In a libertarian society, yes, such a buisiness could probably operate through the normal means. However, there is a chance that the government could interpret the service as prostitution — or Paypal or the banks could just reject your service out of a fear of that happening.
They may feel more secure from the government, but in exchange they make the rewards intrinsically volatile…. I dunno, it makes some sense to me. This was never a thing. They claimed it was a thing; it is not replicable in the data. I am glad they are no longer lying to you and claiming you can get attention that way.
My personal experience only, but a well-written message was in fact able to get me people slightly to moderately above my actual level of attractiveness and I was able to convert them into dates.
Problem was, then my lack of game as the PUAs say did me in and I never got a second date with any of them. This may be why Tinder was so useful; it deals with the physical-attraction aspect right upfront.
Of course they also looked at my profile and questioned whether I was attractive enough! I turned out to be a 3 on a scale of She was a 6 I think. Meant my message writing skills were probably a bit better than the norm, and my photos probably a bit better too. Presumably, people who merely want a one-night stand are more likely to want to travel further, so that first change ought to reduce the impact on the site of men who are merely looking for sex. Why did no one else ever think of that in the history of the ever?!
But then she can just close the profile and create a new one. Why change her profile? Set up a dozen of your own user accounts, send a message to her from each and each week mark an account has having had a successful date with her. Her metrics show that she dates at least one different guy per week. Still hilarious to me. If this is already a problem on other sites where AFAIK you have to actively persuade the suckers to pay you, I dread to think what it will be like on a site where the money rolls in simultaneously with the initial messages.
People being kind to people, even in such inhuman settings, would be more beautiful. Not successful at getting people paired up with dates. This is a system that optimizes for repeat online-interaction rather than for people actually finding partners. The people making the most money on such a system are the ones who get a steady stream of people willing to keep paying to exchange messages with them.
Why would someone keep spending a dollar a pop long term? To exchange for nude pictures and video requests of course. The system is perfect for prostitution and camming. Indeed camsites already use the model , people buy tokens from the site, tip the performers and the performers cash in the tokens. Many places have laws on earning money as a third party from prostitution or sexual services, nominally as anti-pimp measures. Most X-coins never move from early-adopters wallets.
At that point anyone with significant holdings in stars ie, the founders are suddenly in a good place. They seem to be getting away just fine with clearly advertising themselves as a sexual services kind of thing and taking a significant part of the profits. In the reverse, you could view it as a penalty for incompatibility.
The effects are super psychological — more use means the value goes up, and it really emphasizes the sense of community.
If we used something like ETH, the value created by the platform would bleed out into the rest of the market. A token means that increased value gets captured, which incentivizes everyone to use it more. Also thanks for the review!
Totally a photo of me, not some random image found on Google in two seconds. Do I get verified now? Now find a picture with you holding a quarter with thumb and forefinger, with tails facing the camera. Probably possible to find one, but will it be the same person as the first picture? But even in the example you linked, the catfisher claimed it was a one-time thing.
Lads, if ye have spare cash to throw at a dating site, let me recommend Willie Daly to find ye a woman or indeed, a man and the Lisdoonvarna Festival. Yeah I know I look different here. You can also probably get a program to do some of the obvious searches and compare the submitted image against the results.
Yes, maybe the person in the picture just happened to want to find a date and was lucky enough to have a picture matching the request, but that should be rare enough that you cut down on your manpower needs by only handling those situations manually.
The price is decided by a bidding system, and discounts happen off that price — at least is the plan right now. BS detector, I was pretty skeptical at first too.
Because the owners take a fee on every Luna transaction on their service, they want there to be lots of Luna transaction. So the owners are rewarded when lots of people to desperately bid higher and higher for a small pool of highly desirable people. The least compatible the better, actually, so long as you can be convinced to message anyway. Low-compatibility messages are penalized, so more Luna must be spent to make them reach the top of the pile.
On the bright side, this does tend to increase the supply of highly desirable people, since they get most of that money. Though like RicardoCruz said, this encourages such people to pretend to be open to a relationship when really they just want to part desperate users with their Luna. Which can be mitigated by publicizing reply rate, confirmed dates etc.
For example, you can pay tokens to boost your profile, and everyone who views them gets a fraction. The point of second-price auctions is to incentivize participants to signal their true willingness to pay, but how does this work when there is a variable quantity of goods read messages, user interactions, whatevs? Apparently the whitepaper specifies that there is a limited number of messages that go through to a user every day, and that the price paid is according to the most expensive message that was not yet relayed.
Then the legitimate users will be paying just to talk to bots or people who are just there to make quick cash. I read it as you bid on the currency, but messaging is a fixed rate. So message price can fluctuate, but every message costs the same…. Ok, yeah you pay to boost. It is only the processing fee that is returned if there is no response. How full does your inbox need to be where you do not have time to read all your messages?
And if you have genuine interest in dating and not in income , is your selection criteria going to be based on star boost? So then it seems perfectly believable that some subset of women and a far smaller subset of men is getting more messages than they want to deal with. Yeah, I believe it. But for the users that get to that point have a large pool of dates to select from , is their selection criteria going to be stars?
The app could hide compatibility scores from the recipient, but that would be the misaligned incentives speaking. I think the reasoning is that the AI will not be that good. Because online dating offers men the opportunity to hit on girls in such a way that the uncomfortable feeling of rejection is softened.
At the same time, the more desirable girls have no need for online dating since they get hit on all the time in real life. Yeah, this was my thought exactly. Not make it easier for them to think that success is likely in this particular arena…. Reminds me of a friend of a friend who joined a dating site strictly for atheists and agnostics.
The ratio of real, non-bot women to men on such a site must be Vanishing. In the end I only started dating to improve my interviewing skills for the workforce. The reason it uses the blockchain is probably so they can fund it using an ICO, which lets them get millions of dollars of funding without giving up any stake in their company or even developing a prototype.
I figured this out about halfway through the second paragraph, but yeah, it definitely started like one. Bitcoin solves the problem of not being able to trust peers via proof of work. In many of those schemes peers would have a crowdsourced reputation. A Sybil attack is simply the creation of large numbers of peers all created by the same user that then dominate reputation voting. Proof of work essentially transforms the voting weight from per peer very cheap to create to per unit processing power more expensive.
But if a nefarious user can flood the system with fake users then he can game the reputation system for profit. To be fair, the white paper acknowledges this. But the blockchain is not at all part of the proposed solutions, and indeed it is hard to see how it possibly could be.
Instead the mooted solutions are ID and other image uploads to try to verify that real people are behind each account with machine learning to try to catch fraud and cell phone to cell phone NFC transactions to verify physical dates. My two problems with these answers are: The first problem, perhaps surprisingly, not as big a deal.
Yes, it is true that not having it work sours the whole apple cart but on the other hand every other dating site has to deal with that too. And I expect there to be some sort of emerging solution that gradually gets better and better. It probably would have emerged already but the for the strong internet norm in favor of pseudo-anonymity. If the model absolutely requires trust in a third party i. If you are trusting them anyway, they might as well buy and sell fiat tokens.
I do wish them the best of luck though. Probably sociological problems having to do with adverse selection for people that would be attracted to being paid to read messages is bigger. The operators were creating fake female accounts in order to encourage men to spend spend spend for upgrading accounts and so on?
Any dating website has the potential problem of the website owner being nefarious. That was what happened there. That too also exists in other dating websites, but in those cases the payoff is advertising i.
So the incentives to cheat would be that much higher. But I think it is unreasonable to want that. What is somewhat reasonable to want is that there is a real, concrete person behind a profile that is at least open to the idea of going on dates and is at least very roughly honest about his or her characteristics age, gender, location, appearance, sexuality, marital status, income, etc.
I thought this is roughly how traditional matchmakers worked. So with your scheme there is a big incentive to just wait to marry until 5 years and 1 day have passed. This idea horrifies me. Due to the plain facts of biology, the amount of sex that men want exceeds the supply that women are willing to freely give, creating a natural price gradient. Indeed this is not even an analogy, since performing sex is itself is a form of labour. Insisting that sex is not a commodity is a socially imposed denial of base reality, one which i would contend causes more harm than good.
What struck me as odd about this, for an article by a law professor, is that in our legal system speech is more strongly protected, harder to justify regulation of, than economic transactions, not less. I was just being pedantic really. But I think you could argue that viewing sex as to some extent fungible i. By the narrowest definitions commodities are goods rather than services, and since sex is a service, sex is not a commodity.
Additionally there is some fungibility to sex in a roughly similar way there is fungibility to restaurants. Nor do people necessarily feel obligated to have a favourite at all.
Though the ratio seems to reset once you stop controlling for employment. I went to a college with a lopsided female-male ratio, and this probably benefited men for example, it was more common to see a couple where the woman was noticeably more attractive than the man than vice versa.
I seriously doubt this. Sexuality is a continuum. When women express flexibility on this scale it improves their chances in the hetero dating market.
It is also generally easier for non hetero girls to pass as hetero. Also, with men generally as the pursuers bi women have to actively seek out lesbian relationships. Bi men are generally seen as less desirable to women, are much more likely to have a harder time passing as hetero, and will have a MUCH higher success rate when they pursue or are pursued by other men.
Women have significantly higher standards than men pretty sure there is data to support this 2. Women are more interested in monogamy than men men with girlfriends are likely to keep going on dating sites, women with boyfriends are not 3. Men are more interested in technology than women likely to be early adopters of dating sites while women still rely on more traditional methods 4.
Conversely, my wife once tried to start a relatively inexpensive but human-mediated matchmaking service, and got something like a I can see two general explanations of the opposite pattern. One is that some social contexts are defined by characteristics heavily biased towards one gender. Perhaps there is some reason why libertarian ideas appeal to many more men than women.
Suppose, for instance, that everyone knows that Tinder is used primarily for hookups—short term sex. Further suppose that many more women than men strongly prefer long term relationships. You could then get an equilibrium with Tinder mostly male and staying that way. I think what you are missing is that it is qualitative imbalance you want, not quantitative. There was a common saying at the 2: It is a cruel way of stating the obvious, unwanted attention is unwanted, and it is very hard to get away from in heavily imbalanced situations.
The situation is bad for both sides, if 1 girl shows up looking a date and there are 10 single guys there is intense pressure to compete right then and there which brings out some of the worst traits that guys have.
There are extraordinarily few straight men who put fic on AO3, for example, in spite of the fact that surveys suggest upwards of ninety percent of users are female. I have often wondered whether writing really good porn in a popular fandom would be a successful tactic for men to get laid. I am not sure about the logistics of translating that to something in-person, but somehow girls also seemed attracted to me via IRC, so figured that fan fiction community was an untapped resource. I met my wife soon after, so never really put that idea to practice…but I have the same curiosity you do.
I recommend The Machinery of Freedom a lot! On the matter in hand, the Ski Town Dating Aphorism applies: The gender balance of UK students is more like 4: It has a nursing program and shares a campus with an art college and music college and had humanities majors. Most authors get no significant readership. I agree with Matt M on this. So internet dating sites will inevitably attract lots and lots of men.
For desirable women, internet dating is mainly a way to get validation when they are feeling down. Inevitably the women in those thinkpieces are some combination of over, overweight, and deluded , i. For one thing, there are actually more men than women. If you are an 80 year old man who wants an 80 year old woman, you are in great shape. But if you are young, the odds are against you. For another thing, the most desirable men engage in various forms of polygyny.
This can be a matter of dating 2 or more girls at once, but it could also take the form of a man starting a new relationship immediately after a breakup while the woman sits on the sidelines for a few months. The upshot of this is that a man in his 20s who wants a girl in her 20s is competing with men in their 30s, 40s, and sometimes even 50s.
Another assyemtrical factor is children. So that a man who is childless wants a woman who is childless, he is nonetheless competing with men who already have children. Another factor is the obesity epidemic, which is hitting women harder than men even with a biased definition of obesity which attempts to conceal the discrepancy. The upshot of all this is that if you are a man who is young, single, childless, and fit, and all you want is a woman who is young, single, childless, and fit, you face a ton of competition both online and off.
The effective ratio is more like 10 to 1 than 1 to 1. All of these things are pretty obvious and non-controversial; all of them contribute to the woman shortage.
For the record I think your conclusion is broadly correct, but your arguments seem very ad hoc. I would predict that if you did a genetic study, you would discover that the percentage of women who have had children is significantly higher than the percentage of men who have had children.
I would also predict that social meetup type events which are open to the general public and aimed at young single people generally are attended by a lot more men than women; that as the age range increases, the ratio evens out and then flips. I would also predict that as time goes on, couples where the woman is overweight and the man is fit will become more and more common compared to the reverse.
Your first prediction is in fact completely correct, though i suspect you already knew that. It seems that the global average for most of history is roughly four or five women reproducing for every man. Though there was a period in mid-to-late Neolithic during which 17 women reproduced for every man who did.
