The relation between Bitcoin and online dating has always seemed a bit off to people. Butt hat isn’t keeping companies from trying to explore the cryptocurrency payment option. HePays is a new social platform which seems to target singles who want to go out on a date. They also accept Bitcoin payment for this service, which is rather interesting.
The service offered by HePays is targeting a very specific crowd. A lot of people will compare it to Tinder, although that is not exactly the end goal for this service. HePays wants to bring people with money together and make it a more elite form if dating platform. Users can also remain anonymous, or be as open as they want to be.
HePays Is Not Your Average Bitcoin Service
Some people may be wondering why this service was created in the first place. Interesting women, according to the site, are “hit on” too often. This forces most of them to delete their dating profile, which creates a disappointing experience. Most other offering sin the dating world are only superficial or focuses on the intimate aspect instead of finding a partner.
The service is completely free to use, albeit it will have its limitations. Free users will only be able to contact other free users, whereas the rest will be off-limits. A paid account structure is possible, which can be paid for in Bitcoin. This seems like an interesting concept, albeit its chances of success are yet to be determined.
The company also claims they have slightly more registered female users compared to the number of men. Nearly 56% of users are female, and they seem to be happy with the service so far. Users on the platform can search for a match based on location, distance, or other criteria they want to distillate.
As is always the case with dating platforms, users need to be careful and use common sense. It is easy to pay for the HePays membership and create a fake profile to defraud potential matches. Moreover, users will provide all of the information themselves, which will always make things look nicer than they are in reality.
That being said, HePays uses some form of a reputation system. Users can upvote or downvote profiles, which should help users customize the search results. Users’ voting power is determined based on how long they have been a member. The elite dating world is entering the Bitcoin market; that much is certain.
