Cryptocurrency exchange Bitrefill has announced that Tinder users can pay for their premium membership using cryptocurrencies such as  Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, or Dogecoin, at the moment.

The exchange said on Twitter, “Need a date for Valentine’s Day? Did you know you can pay for #Tinder premium subscriptions with cryptocurrency using Bitrefill gift cards?”

Right on time for Valentine’s Day, the exchange said, “Bitrefill allows you to use Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, or Dogecoin to purchase Google Play or Apple iTunes (App Store) gift cards to credit your account, allowing you to pay for subscriptions to Tinder and hundreds of other popular apps.”

The exchange also reminded Tinder users that they can top-up their iTunes or Google Play gift cards by paying in the above mentioned cryptocurrencies.

The reactions from the users were quite interesting. However, Bitrefill clarified, “The prize can be used on any of the hundreds of apps available in Google Play or App Store, not just Tinder!”

Apart from this scintillating Twitter thread, Bitrefill also mentioned that they have activated Lightning Network withdrawals. While a lot of users complained that they have had various issues, the exchange asked them to “hold our beers please”. The exchange said, “In the meantime you can deposit onchain to a Bitrefill account and withdraw to a Lightning invoice.” Elaborating on that, the exchange further said, “Been available for a few weeks, 2FA is required to use it. Work will be out in to make it look a lot better, stay tuned!”

Well, there you have it! For all the singletons, you have hope this Valentine’s Day and users can kill two birds with one stone. You can land a date as well as help take forward crypto adoption. Doesn’t that sound exciting?
