Looking for love this Valentine’s Day? Crypto can help, eToro study finds
It’s Valentine’s Day, and if you’re still looking for your valentine and want to spark some love, maybe you should try adding crypto in your dating profile.
A study from trading platform eToro, which surveyed 2,000 US residents, found that 33 per cent of respondents said they would be inclined to date someone who mentions crypto in their dating profile. Not only that, but more than 40 per cent of men and 25 per cent of women indicated that their interest in a potential date is stronger when crypto is mentioned.
If you’re looking to impress your date, the survey shows that spending your HODL’s might get you a second date. Nearly 74 per cent of respondents said they’d be interested in going on a second date with a person who paid the bill in Bitcoin.
So, just where to look for your Valentine? Tinder? Bumble? Well, over 68 per cent of survey respondents said they would be open to dating someone they met through a financial platform, so maybe it’s time to start trying those pickup lines in Binance’s Discord.
Men are more likely than women to be excited to find love on a finance app. Nearly 75 per cent of men said they’d be open to dating someone they met through a financial platform, while just over 60 per cent of women said the same.

If you already have a lover this V-Day and you still haven’t picked up a gift, don’t stress. The survey suggests that cash is a popular option, with 34 per cent saying they would be very happy to receive cash or a gift card, compared to the 12 per cent of respondents interested in jewellery.
Only eight per cent of responders said they were interested in getting an NFT or crypto as a gift. So, if you know your Valentine isn’t a crypto fan, it might pay to keep that NFT, in more than one way.
Close to 20 per cent of singles are more romantically interested in someone if they have an NFT set as their profile picture on a social platform or dating site, so maybe keep your NFT, and keep your options open.
