What We're Building

Taffy is an online dating application that connects users to people around them, with one major twist: Profile pics are blurry until you start a conversation.

Our chat-first app lets you thumb through personal ads with blurry pics and catchy headlines. Images slowly reveal through active chat - i.e., the more you say, the more you see. We also provide hilarious ice breakers to get the convo going. The result is an authentic and engaging chat-first experience that puts personality on a level playing field with physical attraction.

Taffy is now moving to the blockchain. Stay tuned!
