Some little bit of the basic info and background about Matchpool.
About Matchpool (GUP)
Matchpool was launched in early of 2017. It aims to create a matchmaking app that based on the decentralized blockchain. It uses the token called Guppy token or Guppies (GUP) build on Ethereum ERC20 smart contract protocol for payment process within the platform.
Matchpool targets at solving dehumanizing profiling strategies and demographic imbalances in dating app. The app will hope to create a sharing economy and helps in the matchmaking process.
Individuals will be able to create their own matchmaking pools via the Matchpool mobile app,
– Matchpool will focus on “pools” in its platform. Pools are essential groups that people would gather in and ‘meet’ each other.
– The pools will be themed in groups based on demographics, geography, and interests, There will be fees (regular and entry) in the GUP tokens.
– Members have profiles, but they are useless outside pools.
– There will be two types of participants, namely joiners and hosts.
– The joiners can be normal users or helpers. Helpers can function as helping any users to match each other.
– Hosts are responsible for creating pools and deciding on rewards distribution to helpers and fees for users.
The Mobile Dating App Market
– The mobile dating app, revenue has increased ten folds from 2009 to 2017, however, the margin of growth is decreasing. That shows the market is reaching near maturity stage. Matchpool seeks to rejuvenate more growth stream through decentralization and sharing economy model.
Online Dating Market Share
Currently, the market is dominated by few big players. They are roughly 9 apps that dominate the market share. But new entries still have to chance to gain market share if they have new and unique features in their app.

The current GUP price was about 70% off the June peak. The continuous sell-off throughout since then is aligned with the general altcoin bearish trend. Furthermore, the project team showing little progress since the company ICO ended in April.
In August, the Guppy (GUP) price against Bitcoin had been recovered steadily. The upward move now in mild correction leeway. That five-day losing streak now formed a symmetrical triangle that could force the price make a decision. The burst through the downside could drag the price further down to 3515 satoshi.
However, I am positive on GUP making a pull back from the current level. The current triangle could stage a positive move upward as part of the continuous upswing pattern. The price touched around 5400 and immediately rebounded indicating market interest. The previous price surge confirmed the reversal trend.
Resistance level to watch,
The recent Alpha release is paving for the official launching of the app in coming months,
I am in generally bullish about GUP, the project is not a phony money grabbing scam, The mobile dating market is huge. Being the first in the market, Matchpool is in pole position to rip the benefits.
Trading idea: Hodl for immediate to medium term.
