One of the world’s most popular gay dating apps is now controlled by a little-known company from a conservative country.
Grindr sold a 60% stake (paywall) to Beijing Kunlun Tech Company, a Chinese gaming firm, the New York Times reports. Given Grindr’s global presence (it has users in nearly 200 countries) and name recognition, its low-key buyer might seem puzzling.
Kunlun is not household name in China, or even in its tech industry, but the company has made enough money in games to pivot towards global venture capital.
The company started exporting titles to games portals in Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia in 2009, according to an interview Zhou gave Sina Tech (link in Chinese) and now partners with Rovio, makers of the Angry Birds series, and Supercell, best known for Clash of the Clans.
Zhou has a wife (link in Chinese), so those wondering whether he’s the next gay Chinese tech mogul (after Blued founder Geng Le) will probably be disappointed.Will Tao, an analyst who follows on China’s internet, says that Grindr’s business model could help Kunlun learn how to attract more users.Gay people spend more time engaged with apps than “other user groups,” Tao said, and they have “closer relationships” to other people.The New York Times is ranked 18th in the world by circulation.
