Fair Decentralized Blockchain Dating

Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Interaction and communication have substantially
shifted online. It is inevitable, that this trend will only increase in the future to come. While this
enables us to meet more people online, it also makes relationships superficial, unfair and
unsecure. We believe that when it comes to relationships, we should be picky. This is why we
have created the first fair, transparent and truly decentralized dating app.

About Hicky (PreICO)

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.


You can find every useful feature in our Whitepaper. One example is our Decentralized Autonomous Dating (DAD) Network which runs on an incentivization model that works within the new paradigm of decentralized crypto economics. Positive behavior is economically incentivized while community building is encouraged through the stakeholder (decentral) governance model. The Picky token, like money in the real world, forms the backbone of this network. It must be emphasized that the DAD is fundamentally a democratic, human driven entity.

Hicky (PreICO) Roadmap

  • The Picky Vision is Founded (2017 Q1)

  • Realizing that the problems associated with online dating stem from lack of authenticity, lack of security, and misaligned incentives between platform users and owners, the core team members come together to discuss a solution. The utility of blockchain applications rapidly becomes apparent as an increasingly wide variety of Ethereum-based projects are being proposed around the world. A blockchain based dating platform emerges as the solution to the frankly dangerous state of online dating. The foundation of Picky becomes a reality and the core team gets ready to disrupt the status quo.
  • Phase 1

  • Start of our CompanyFoundation of Picky - First thoughts about crating a fair dating app based on blockchain technology.
  • 2017 Q1 - Founding of Hicky

  • 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.
  • Team Building (2017 Q2)

  • Seven blockchain enthusiasts come together. They are differentiated by their diversified experience in wide ranging industries. Combining 15 years of online dating experience (Marketing / Lead Generation / Product Development) with 8 years of blockchain industry insights and business development, the necessary ingredients to Picky a success come together. First goal: Build an MVP to collect feedback from early adopters.

  • 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 First Version of Picky is Developed and Tested (2017 Q3)

  • The team builds a closed beta first version of the Picky application to give it out to close friends and business associates for the purposes of gathering feedback. This early MVP has some of the core features of the app, including: 1.) Private Messaging 2.) Encrypted data 3.) Verified Customer Data with facial recognition (beta-version).
  • Phase 3

  • First MVPBeta-Application is built and only given out to friends, business partners and other chosen people. Implementations made in this MVP: 1) Private Messaging 2) Encrypted data 3) Verified Customer Data including face recognition (beta-version).
  • 2017 Q3 - Development and Testing

  • 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.
  • Picky Decides to Conduct a Token Generation Event (2017 Q4)

  • The token utility and structure is carefully set to up align incentives in the Picky DApp economy. In order to bring Picky to the masses the decision is made to conduct a token generation event. The crowd-sale is designed in the most democratic, transparent, and fair way possible in order to ensure a wide and even distribution of tokens.
  • Phase 4

  • ICO
  • 2017 Q4 - Hicky Token Sale

  • 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.
  • Massive Team Expansion (2018 Q1)

  • In order to bring the Picky DApp to the mainstream as quickly as possible, we plan to hire and onboard highly qualified people to complete the Picky team. We expect to onboard professionals from the areas of development, project management, online marketing and customer support.
  • Phase 5

  • Development & extension of our teamThe First priority after our Initial Coin Offering is to further develop our DApp. Therefore we want to make the Dapp available on devices other than the Iphone. We are also planning a blockchain based ranking of the users based on their behaviour. For that we will assemble the most competent team possible.
  • 2018 Q1 - Token Sale and Alpha Launch

  • 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.
  • Europe Market Introduction (2018 Q2)

  • Picky will be introduced to the European market with a live and functioning version of Picky on both IOS and Android. Our team will focus on marketing with the aim of gaining the biggest market share among dating apps in Europe.
  • 2018 Q2 - Hicky DApp Launch

  • 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.
  • Further Country Expansion (2018 Q3)

  • Since Picky will be already available in the European zone, it is now time to bring Picky to different Markets around the world. We will be focussing on markets that already have a massive adoption of dating apps. We therefore, will have to onboard and open offices in strategic locations to support and manage the expansion.
  • 2018 Q3 - Country Expansion

  • 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.
  • Introduction of Monetizing Schemes (2018 Q4)

  • We first and foremost keep our promise to ensure that Picky will never be an annoying dating application. However, we have identified several ways to introduce a monetization option in order to further enhance the Picky experience. The priority however remains to keep Picky a pleasurable dating experience for our users.
  • 2018 Q4 - Partnerships & Monetisation

  • 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.
