According to the announcement, the mini-app, dubbed ‘TON Dating,’ is the first such dating application on the messaging platform. It claimed that the app offers “a safe and exclusive environment for real people to connect on Telegram.”

TON Dating: ‘Real girls meet interesting boys’

TON Dating leverages web apps that run atop Telegram messenger, which are known as “mini-apps.” Businesses have utilized these mini-apps to sell physical products on Telegram for many years, according to company CEO Pavel Durov. More than 400 million people interact with the apps every month.

Per the announcement, TON Dating is a membership-based dating community. To become a member, you will need to create a profile on the website or join using an existing cryptocurrency wallet that supports The Open Network, or TON. You can do all this inside your Telegram account.

Cryptopolitan attempted to create a profile on Telegram’s new dating app. This writer joined using MyTonWallet and was asked to provide a brief biography and personal details, including date of birth, location, and link to my Instagram profile. I found the requirements too intrusive and didn’t go through with it.

The developers claim that “all profiles are carefully reviewed and verified, ensuring you meet only real people and make meaningful connections.”

“Multi-step identity verification ensures no anonymous users or bots, only real people,” the company said.

As bots run riot on rival sites like X, formerly Twitter, TON Dating says its app comes with “high-quality connections where real girls meet interesting boys.” It added that the most active members will get rewards in Ton cryptocurrency, “especially girls.”

Cryptopolitan has been informed TON Dating is not affiliated with Telegram. TON Dating was created and is operated by an independent third party using Telegram’s open bot platform. Telegram does not control the service.
