The dating app promised to bring together fans of crypto and NFTs who belonged to the “Bored Ape” community.

A particular dating application launched in February of this year to meet the love needs of fans of crypto and “NFTs” was forced to end its services just months later because it failed to attract women to its platform. Could it be that crypto is a thing for men?

The app is called “The Lonely Ape Dating Club” and his promise was to “link like-minded degens”.

As advertised when its launch was announced, “Lonely Ape Dating Club” had a list of features that set it apart from other dating apps. In it, users could display their crypto stacks and NFTs by connecting their cryptocurrency wallets to the app.

It was also said that they could choose who to match based on their crypto heritage and collection of the NFT. Also, if a user liked someone, they could send them some crypto tips to get their attention.

In this tweet, the creators of the app stated that they were canceling it because there were too many men on the platform.

The promising app claimed that it would have a feature to earn tokens by swiping and interacting with others, while a feature called “coin hunter” would allow users outside of the “Bored Ape Yacht Club” to match up with higher net worth users for mutual benefit.

But such an approach did not come to be and a few days ago the creators of the initiative announced that it was cancelled.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, this project has been put on hold indefinitely,” reads a statement on the service’s website. However, its creators, “Y4K”, a “motley crew of NFT hackers and collectors”gave more details in a May 14 tweet.

“Unfortunately, due to a very uneven ratio of men and women who signed up for our waiting list, we have decided to suspend the BAYC dating app indefinitely.”says the collective. “Too many brothers! We sincerely appreciate your interest and support.”

Despite the best efforts of artists like Grimes, Pussy Riot and Yam Karkai (the illustrator of the women’s world), the cryptocurrency sector is still disproportionately male.

At the end of last year, the work of women artists represented barely 16% of NFT sales. In addition, many women who inhabit the crypto space have denounced mistreatment, bullying and a culture of misogyny.
