Viola.AI leverages on blockchain technology to change the dating and relationships landscape in the world.
One of the questions the team at Viola.AI gets asked frequently — why does the dating and relationships industry need blockchain?
One of the key problems that blockchain help to solve is trust.
There’s a huge trust problem in the dating industry — online love scammers are making billions of dollars a year preying on unsuspecting singles. Their usual modus operandi — grab a photo of a random decent looking person online, masquerade as the person, use a fake name, and start chatting with singles who think that this persona actually exists. Once an emotional connection is created, they will start coming up with sad sob stories to ask for money transfers.
One of the dirty secrets of this industry is — many online sites and mobile apps actually use bots to lure their users into subscribing for their services. With the short customer lifetime value and quick churn rates, many industry players succumbed to such unethical practices, breaking the trust between service provider and user.
Firstly, with Viola.AI’s Real ID verification built on blockchain, singles’ identity is verified through visual recognition and singles now can be assured that they are really chatting with authentic and verified users. No more faceless characters, no more fake profiles containing pictures of models or actors/actresses. Also, by hashing the results of the REAL-ID onto the blockchain and by decentralizing the key personal information onto the mobile devices, this will ensure that even if there is a security breach, all the private data is still protected.
