WIRED DE - Dec 23 - Frustrated with online dating, a young American Andre Ornish is developing his own dating app - Luna. Ornish believes that one of Tinder's biggest issues is the uneven distribution of attention: "Either you're overrun or ignored." The Luna developers want to prevent it by charging a fee on sending messages using the app's own currency. Luna's startup capital comes from the Ethereum Project, the platform behind the digital currency ether. The blockchain technology of Luna is therefore not directly based on Bitcoin, but on the alternative Ethereum. The app is expecting to launch at the end of January 2018.
