Distributed database that is used to maintain a continuously growing list of records, called blocks.

Israeli startup Matchpool announced the release of an alpha version of its blockchain platform.

The startup has attracted the attention of blockchain community at the end of last year. Developers announced that they want to create a social platform based on a blockchain technology. Main feature of the project is ability for monetization. 

The platform is often described as a "mix of Tinder and Slack", as it involves the creation of channels that are actually separate websites. The owner of such a channel will have excellent opportunities for earning some amount in the domestic currency of the platform, called Guppies.

Ethereum

Open-source blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract functionality, which facilitates online contractual agreements.

Community liked the idea. Otherwise, it is difficult to explain how Matchpool managed to gain 125,000 ETH in two days, which was $ 6 million at that time.

The alpha version of the platform implies the ability to create your own pools based on some common interests, visit other people's pools, create group or personal chats, and post your own content in a general newsfeed.

In addition, the creator of the pool has the ability to specify a specific geographical targeting for potential participants, as well as make membership in the pool paid or free.

Matchpool platform, built on Ethereum smart contracts, was created to help you find a partner based on common interests.

According to the representatives of the project, after collecting feedback and public testing of the alpha version, work will begin on a beta version, which is expected to be submitted in six months. In addition, Jonathan Ben Shimon said that he was approached by "some influential entertainment industry players" who plan to use Matchpool to work with their communities.
