Can't set state in js react-native

Getting error while trying to setState in React Native.

Code

import React from "react";
import { TextInput, Text, View, Button, Alert } from "react-native";

const UselessTextInput = () => {
  state = { currentDate: "" };

  const setCurentDate = (val) => {
    this.setState({currentDate : val});
  };

  const [value, onChangeText] = React.useState("");

  return (
    <View>
      <Text
        style={{
          alignSelf: "center",
          marginTop: 60,
          fontWeight: "bold",
          fontSize: "25",
        }}
      >
        BirthReminder
      </Text>
      <Text style={{ alignSelf: "center", marginTop: 15, fontSize: 15 }}>
        Enter your friend's birthdate, please
      </Text>
      <TextInput
        clearTextOnFocus={true}
        style={{
          height: 40,
          borderColor: "gray",
          borderWidth: 1,
          marginTop: 20,
          width: 250,
          alignSelf: "center",
        }}
        onChangeText={(value) => setCurentDate(value)}
        value={value}
      />
      <Button title="Add to list"></Button>
    </View>
  );
};

export default UselessTextInput;

Error
