Consent Tracker Set to Transform Online Dating with Blockchain Technology
In a bid to foster transparency in the online dating industry and curb the incidence of sexual assault, a team of technologists is set to launch Consent Tracker, a blockchain-powered solution to revolutionize the online dating “game,” according to a Trijo report on June 2, 2019.
Making Dating Safer with DLT
The team has made it clear that user identities in the app will be fully verified and stored on the blockchain to ensure that each user can see the real identity of the person they may be interested in dating.
Users with verified identities will be able able to connect with other users who have done the same.
According to Jason Maskell, the founder of Consent Tracker, the primary objective of the platform is to deter people only interested in short-term encounters from signing up on the platform, since their real IDs will be visible to those they may be looking to take advantage of.
“We aim to remove those people who are not looking to build a serious relationship and felt if a party is looking to take advantage of the other they would not want to sign up on Consent Tracker because their full identity is logged and we have a record of the date and could show the interaction within the date.”
In other words, the Consent Tracker dating platform is leveraging the capabilities of blockchain technology to provide the safest online dating experience for users.
Bringing Back the Fun
While online dating and social media platforms such as Tinder and even Facebook may have helped many people to find their real soulmates, there have also been cases of sexual assaults and even deaths orchestrated by bad actors on a vast array of these sites.
Against that backdrop, Maskell and his team decided to create the DLT-based Consent Tracker solution to change the online dating system.
At current, the app is in its beta phase, with the full version slated to go live by the end of 2019, if the team get the funds it needs to push the app.
