In 2009 some person or a group of people under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin. We are living in the digital age, so there is no surprise that cryptocurrencies are slowly taking all over the world. Throughout its history Bitcoin has been jumping in value from $0.30 to $20,000. Although in 2018 it has fallen from $19,500 to $6,000, Bitcoin remains a hot topic. Cryptocurrencies can be exchanged for other currencies, products and services. While no one can say for sure whether Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies would replace standard currencies, more and more online services start accepting them. So, it didn’t come as a surprise that certain online dating services started accepting cryptocurrencies.
