Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT NFT holders get a dating app

Bored Ape Yacht Club is getting NFT dating app. In perhaps the most niche dating market of all time, the app will focus on finding love for NFT owners. Lonely Monkey Dating Club creates the first NFT-focused dating app. They will start with the NFT owners of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and plan to expand in the future.

Created by Year 4000 Labs, the Lonely Monkey Dating Club (LADC) aims to find ways to integrate cryptocurrencies and web3 into the dating scene.

How does the Lonely Ape Dating Club NFT app work?

Basically, Lonely Ape Dating Club works like any other dating app. Like Tinder, Hinge, and others, it is an online dating service that allows users to find love, friendship, and more. While dating apps were once a strange way to get to know someone, they are now widely used all over the world. In fact, 39% of couples now meet through apps. Moreover, by 2040 this figure could rise to 70%.

The popularity of these applications is explained by the fact that they simplify the dating process. They speed up the process of finding potential partners, communication, flirting and much more. The NFT dating app will apply the same approach to the NFT space.

The Lonely Ape Dating Club will help members of the NFT community find love using metrics that the community finds valuable.

Importantly, users can connect their crypto wallets and filter potential partners by net worth and NFTs they own. Users of the NFT dating app can also show metrics to their potential partners. The data includes duration of ownership of certain NFTs, personal net worth and total number of NFTs.

In addition, you earn tokens by meeting partners, and you can also tip potential partners to get their attention. The “Coin Digger” feature will allow non-BAYC holders to connect with the wealthy, in what LADC calls “mutual benefit.”

Twitter makes fun of the dating project

While it sounds like an interesting concept, many Twitter users were quick to ridicule the project. @smoovie420 wrote: “They did it. The worst thing they could do, they figured out how to do it.”

Currently, there are 6.4 thousand owners of the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection. This means that there is a fairly small circle of potential relationships when you consider how many people are already in a relationship, sexual preferences, and so on. However, it can be a great launching pad for the development and improvement of the NFT dating app platform.

Anonymity and security are huge factors in the NFT space. Because of this, it may discourage some people from using the app. Likewise, cryptocurrencies and NFTs are overwhelmingly male-targeted.

It will be interesting to see how the creators of the app make sure women are comfortable and safe while using the app. Apps like Bumble let women make the first move. This method spares them unwanted and sometimes inappropriate messages they receive through apps.
