Alright, let's hear this out. What will be your cut/the whore's cut? What about cleanliness standards and such? What will you do to ensure that the whores aren't going to get Jeffrey Daumer'd or Josef Fritzel'd or whatever?
I am interested how heavily you intend to profiteer, as any overhanded technique will just drive them to prostitute through some cheaper knockoff.
As for the murder stuff, Not his issue. Same as how craigslist isn't responsible for people not dying. He's an app purveyor, not a pimp.
I assume 5% or so
Same transition as with Uber is to be expected - Regular taxi drivers have no option but to become an Uber driver. There simply won't be any work for them outside the app, with the exception of very high class ones
He is providing a marketplace for them that doesn't involve walking up and down a street in a bad neighborhood at night. His cut is probably lower than a pimp's would be as well. It's a simple business model.
You should probably have a feature wherein the prostitute and john can anonymously rate each other after the experience. This provides additional confidence for both parties.
Countless people became a taxi driver due to Uber. I expect girls to react similarly (not as extreme evidently) towards becoming an escort
+ Established prostitutes will be left with no demand so they are compelled to join as well.
With blockchain applications operative in the near future, i.e. anonymity, transparency and cooperation with governments will be mutually beneficial since it will be unavoidable so at least safety measures etc. can be taken
What you don't understand OP is unlike Uber which provides a service to both consumers and workers (and this is why they took over the market), your app wouldnt be different from any adult classified website. Why hookers would pay you a fee if she can find hundreds of clients on craiglist for free ?
I'm a dev and been thinking about making such a similar app but haven't had the motivation.
The way I would want it is to have a free platform with payed for premium service for the escorts which would list them above non premium in addition you could have ads that are tailored to your users based on location and sexual tastes
The app( I would make it a mobile friendly website) would need search options so that one can search by preferred hair colour, nationality ect as well as distance from the user and ability to list by price or distance ect which backpages and craiglist lack.
inb4 you don't have any programing or design skills and are just an ideas guy
