THE MERKLE - Mar 21 - Hicky, a Tinder-like mobile app launched on top of the Ethereum blockchain, has been conducting an ICO to distribute its token HKY, which is compatible with the Ethereum network's native cryptocurrency Ether. ~ 24.1M HKYs have been raised, surpassing its soft cap. Given that 1 Ether = 7,500 HKYs, the blockchain project has already secured ~$2M in funding. Hicky is advised by former executives of Tinder. Hermione Way, the former Head of European Communications for Tinder, has officially joined the Hicky team to oversee its growth and branding in the long-term. Hicky is similar to Tinder, wherein sensitive personal and financial information of users on the app are not shared or monetized. The ICO is still ongoing, and it is expected to end on March 26.
