Bumble serves catfish in New York to poke fun at online dating
Be alerted, be informed Bumble is backed by Badoo (80%, majority-owned by Badoo)
It is said Badoo is related to Russian mafia of white hat hackers in the spyware business.
Badoo is in big war with Tinder (Match Group)
When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (6+ years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission.
IAC / Match Group "acquired" HatchLabs to "develop" Tinder copycat of Badoo.
Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back and destroy Tinder (last December 2014).
TO BE MORE CLEAR, BUMBLE IS PUPPET FROM BADOO!
Bumble revenue in the range of USD 150 Million for 2018
Bumble currently has 52 employees - 42 of whom are women - mostly based at its USA Texas HQ.
