OkCupid, one of the most important dating websites online decided to accept bitcoins as a payment method. You might think that people staying in front of their computers, worrying about finding the best configurations to mine bitcoins are not so interested about dating, but because of some unknown reason, many dating websites accepted bitcoin as a payment method, especially because the bitcoin transactions are anonymous, and the majority of people that are on dating websites care about their privacy.
Bottom line, OKCupid now accepts bitcoins as a payment method. This way, you can pay the 10$ A-List service from this speed dating website in bitcoins.
Bitcoin at OKCupid? What is the use?
After WordPress, Reddit and Expensify, OKCupid is another major name that wrote its name on the list of websites accepting bitcoins.
Some users on the dating websites want to post as many details about them as possible and those would probably prefer other payment methods, but there are also the users that want to keep their identity anonymous, and this can be made with bitcoins.
Sam Yagan talks about Bitcoin and OkCupid
Sam Yagan, the founder of OKCupid believes that this currency will be mainstream soon, and this is why he wants to be one of the first companies accepting the bitcoin. This would probably give them a competitive advantage, especially for the times when the bitcoin would not be a niche concept, and it will be used as a standard currency for online payments.
