As described in 3.2.4, we intend to make feedback polls available after dates.
Once users have rated their experience, Luna will then allow them to choose whether to leave a tip of their choice in the form of Stars.
So if you treat user attention as a resource you can trust the market to allocate it optimally – in this case, to the guy who’s just realized he’s your soulmate, rather than the guy who’s spamming everyone with five dick pics.

Luna intends to take a small fee for this transaction, but only if the recipient responds to the message within a window of a number of days yet to be determined.In this way Luna’s financial incentives will be aligned with users’ goals at Stage IV in the exchanging of messages. Possibility of tipping in case of successful offline dates.Another way to provide incentive for Luna to help achieve its users’ goals is to allow users to tip the platform after the achievement of Stage V in the completion of a successful date.Users who want to catch someone else’s attention can bid the local cryptocurrency, Stars, to get their message to the top of another user’s queue; all Stars spent in this way go to the user receiving the message.Stars can be bought with dollars and vice versa, so popular users can actually earn money reading all the messages sent to them. Market forces are the known solution to the problem of connecting resources to their highest-value use.
