Crypto and Online dating

Online dating apps revolutionized the entire world. With more than 7 million people in the US alone using dating apps, crypto being a part of it is certainly something to look out for. A recent survey by eToro revealed that mentioning or talking about crypto on these dating platforms was considered attractive.

eToro carried out a survey labeled Crypto & Culture where 2,000 US citizens were interviewed. Among them, 33% of respondents were reportedly inclined to go out on a date with someone who mentions cryptocurrencies in their profile. However, 20% of them suggested that they would be appalled by someone who mentioned crypto.


About 40% of men in the survey suggested that their connection or interest in the date was stronger following the mention of crypto. Yet, only 25% of women mirrored this sentiment.

Anna Stone, eToro’s Director of Corporate Social Responsibility commented about the results from the latest survey and said,

“From online dating to investing in traditional and crypto assets, app-based interactions have become a central part of some of the biggest life projects we can embark upon. At a time when we can make our most inherently personal choices with the click of a button, our latest survey findings help illuminate the connections between how we navigate two seemingly unrelated topics.”

Pay in crypto and land a second date!

Furthermore, 74% of the participants, would most likely go on a second date if their date paid the bill in crypto. Here, men seemed to be more inclined towards women who did so.
