In a booming industry, with the market value of 5 billions US dollars, projected to grow to approximately 7 billions by 2020, Dating is one of the most extensive and still-growing online industries, but user experience remains poor due to two main deficiencies in currently available platforms.
The first deficiency lies in the current game theoretic tactics, the rules to which users must adhere in order to achieve dating success: bad incentives have left the dating game with a severe attention imbalance and have resulted in issues such as poor messaging behavior, fake accounts, and misuse of personal data. The second deficiency lies in poor user-matching algorithms, which result in low levels of success in finding and connecting with a potential partner.
Understand these issues, DatEat came up with an unique concept of combining the best of Dating and other entertaining industries to create a blockchain powered platform that help people to find their perfect dates through great places with great appetties. Our tokens verifications help validate user credentials, to help solve the often first awkward moments of meet up, to help dates find the best places on an affordable prices.
DatEat employs a queueing system built upon distributed ledger technology and includes novel features to maximize user trust. This document sets out in detail both the current issues faced by online dating platforms and DatEat’s solution, which includes its innovative system of incentives, its use of machine learning algorithms, and its use of blockchain to deliver a high level of user satisfaction.

PLEASE DO NOT INVEST IN THIS PROJECT
This is not the first "blockchain" dating platform... there have been many who have tried previously, unfortunately to the same end as the cost to gain a user base through marketing is tremendous (more than they can expect to raise). Without a suffucient user population on the platform there is very little chance of success, and as the platform seems to have an immediate regional focus, i do not see how they intend to or can create organic growth.
the target market quoted in the whitepaper starts at 14 years old, which i find quite disturbing actually. why would a 14yr old need a dating app?
the project claims to be based in singapore yet the founders and directors profiles all indicate Vietnam. Vietnam is not a very crypto friendly country given the previous scams in the country. and because the team appears to be all regionally based, i do not see how they will attract investment outside of the area.
the market analysis numbers quoted are generic and for the most part meaningless as there is no comparison made with another blockchain viable product, so it is quite simply congecture and hinges on mention of "user trust" as the entire basis of use case.
the hardcap is way out of line given the cost associated to build this type of platform and the 23mil usd cannot be qualified.
there does not seem to be a tangible business plan that includes revenue stream against adoption or other solid financial information.
I cannot find anything within the content of the information provided that would indicate any viable return to investors in either the short or the long term.
I do not believe this to be a good investment.

Well, for example, why is Block Chain and AI necessary?
There are too many opaque elements.
This project seems to be dangerous from all sides.

I am sorry to say but this is one of the most worse projects I have seen, and believe me, I have seen enough. Their product, first of all is not unique and secondly, does not justify the need of blockchain. The team in inexperienced and localized.
Their roadmap looks like a joke. Instead of talking about product development, it talks about ICO Rounds and exchange listings.
I would advise to stay away from it.

The website looks good, the whitepaper is very long and documented, however I cannot see any real reason why this project needs to be on blockchain. In the whitepaper they say competition apps, such as Tinder, have hidden fees?!? I's sorry to say it, but this doesn't make much sense to me.

One of the worst projects ever seen. I hope it is a scam, because if it is true it is disgusting.
In the whitepaper and on the website is indicated the minimum age of only 14 years... absurd!
Furthermore, Blockchain would not be required to build this platform.
Do not invest, red flag!

Just glanced through the white paper makes me uneasy. The website is a bit broken "Error 404 - Page Not Found" and 14 year old dating... umm nope. I just don't see the purpose of a dating website doing an ICO or need of it. Just never sold me on the idea.
