"Upstart Bitcoiner-Only Dating Site RabbitHole Under Fire For "Don't Trust, Verify" User Sex Policy"

Article written by Moccomo Zucco

RabbitHole, the Bitcoiner-only dating site founded by American Hodl, Brad Mills, and BitcoinTINA, is in the hot seat over its decison to require would-be users to complete a genital/birth certificate correspondence verification to access the site.

"Bitcoiners understand better than most the ways in which systems that require trust can enable many forms of fraud and abuse. While losing money to shitcoin casinos and ordinal/JPEG scams is certainly less than ideal, the betrayal of being lied to by a romantic partner can be far more damaging. To ensure that our users get exactly who they are being advertized to be chatting and going out with, we require users to provide the same standard of genital verification that they have come to expect and value in Bitcoin: "Don't trust, Verify," said RabbitHole spokesperson Catoshi Nakameow.

RabbitHole was famously founded at 4am on the 17th day of a 21 day Clubhouse Marathon to support Bitcoin Core Devs. John Fakhoury mentioned the idea as a joke, which American Hodl immediately and ironically pledged a million dollars to fund. Brad Mills, joining the call just in time to hear Hodl's pledge, assumed the idea was an actual start-up and offered $5 million of his own. BitcoinTINA, desperate to recoup funds at expense of Bitcoiners who mocked the lettucehands he demonstrated in selling most of his Bitcoin after building his reputation as a Bitcoin permabull, sold $103,000 worth of RobinHood-custodied Bitcoin to close the seed round.

The controversy came to a head during a series of in-person RabbitHole speed dating events when attendees were required to drop trou to gain entry. While the vast majority complied enthusiastically in the hopes of finding a mate and doing their part to raise the Bitcoiner birth rate to the fabled 6.15 children per family, a small, vocal, blue-haired contingent rebuffed at the door stayed to protest, chanting "Trustless coins and chosen groins!"

Representatives from Hodl, Mills, and BitcoinTINA could not be reached for comment because they were laughing too hard.
