The Lonely Ape Dating Club was made to connect blockchain and cryptocurrency with dating. The club, created by ‘Year 4000 Labs’, has a whitelist for launching the app. As the company’s name indicates, the app was built for NFT enthusiasts, and specifically for Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT holders.
The Lonely Ape Dating Club has a list of features detailing the ways in which it differs from other dating apps. On the app, users will be able to show off their crypto and NFT stacks by connecting their cryptocurrency wallets to the app. They can also choose who they match with based on their crypto net worth and which NFTs they own. If a user likes someone, they can send them a tip in crypto to attract their attention.
The match-to-earn feature will allow users to earn tokens by swiping and engaging with others, while the ‘coin digger’ feature will enable non-BAYC owners to match with higher net worth users for mutual benefits.
On the Flipside
- The app will likely cater to less than 10,000 people, as that’s how many Bored Ape NFTs exist. Naturally, not all of the holders are single or even interested in finding dates through an app.
