Dating and social interactions are a major case for blockchain! So basically all relationships, may it be friends/business or romantic, haven an underlying currency. And that is trust.Because current platforms dont support this value, they have one big issue, and that is the ratio from man to woman (always more men then women). Some platforms tried to favour women and their interest to solve this, but never really were able to solve this. Blockchain gives es not only the power to create an app that will be attractive to women, but also to built a dating app with longterm view ( the more companies/governments etc will use blockchain) We solve the ratio issue by addressing the current issues that all dating platforms have. We created an app infrastructure that focuses on the interests of female users. These are for example verified users, a safe dating experience (for example date deposits etc) through a consensus mechanism that kicks out people who behave in a bad matter.

We have all seem the attention and traction that apps like Tinder have received. The online dating industry is not going to slow down anytime soon. I look forward to watching the progress of Hicky.

No MVP, 36000 ETH hardcap is high in my opinion, 20% allocation to the team also seems high (even if it's vested/locked), I fail to see any significant advantages to of using blockchain technology for this product/service.

Interesting application for Blockchain. Excellent advisors complements young team.
One concern to me is that success will only come from user adoption. Convincing users to abandon Match, Tinder, etc for an unknown Blockchain startup will be difficult.
I find the facial recognition matching with National ID and the concept of getting paid in tokens if a date no shows quite compelling. I see less value in the DAD to settle disputes over poor behavior, etc.

Excellent branding. Background of the team members are linked to one of the most successful dating apps on the planet. "4" due to lack of understanding of 'dating on blockchain' concept- having said that - this has the potential to capture mass market.

Was brought here by aggressive and pointless marketing in messaging apps. Consequently took a look at the product.
Long story short: tons of pure common BS wording in the White Paper (yeah, a lot have been read, so reprints, "quotes" and rephrases were noticed in every second paragraph).
Also, I failed to locate any substantial projected financials in the whitepaper, which is a crucial flaw for the Dating App*, since that market is one of the most competitive out there. It really feels like a clear case of [ab]using Blockchain with little to no reason just to get that buzzword for ICO.
* With all due respect to the blockchain decentralized development Hicky claims, only their app and according user data has any foreseeable moneymaking potential, so let's call things for what they are.

The main problems in online dating stem from a general misalignment of incentives between platform owners and users, leading to a lack of authenticity in the user base as well as the lack of security and privacy inherent to centralised systems. With backgrounds in blockchain and online dating, the four core members decide to spec out a solution based on the architectural possibilities of the Ethereum blockchain. Hicky is born.
As they say, an idea is with nothing, it’s all about the execution. Three more team members join the project each bringing in expertise from a variety of fields including product development, software development, blockchain architecture, design and marketing to build an MVP, collect user feedback and test the waters.
The team completes an Alpha version of the Hicky application and opens it to close friends and business associates to gather initial feedback. The Alpha includes the following features: encrypted messaging, encrypted data storage and identity verification via face scan technology.
The conceptualisation of the underlying token economy for the Hicky network is finalised and the smart contract for the Hicky token (HKY) sale is developed. The cofounders from Blockmason.io (Michael and Tim) joins as advisors with experience in crypto finance and token architecture respectively.
The token sale event will start with a private sale on the 14. January and the public sale will start on Valentine’s Day, 14. February. Furthermore the alpha version of the Hicky Decentralised Application (DApp) will be released by the end of Q1. The team will be expanded in order to cater to the different projects.
Hicky will launch its DApp for both the iOS and Android platforms. We will initially launch the DApp in english, making it available to users in the European market. We will be focusing on building a strong brand within Europe before expanding to further countries.
From our European base we will be making Hicky available in countries beyond Europe, mainly Asia, as the adoption of dating apps is already strong in many of the countries. We will onboard more further team members to cater for the expansion and also provide valuable insights into the market specifics.
The idea behind Hicky is to create a fair, secure and trustworthy network. As the ecosystem expands and increasingly more DApps are being developed, the strength of the network depends its the interconnectivity. We will be focusing on forming strong relations with our partners. Furthermore, our monetization concepts will be implemented.
