Jackpot with Chatroulette Tokens

For those of you who haven’t been happy about the men to women ratio on Chatroulette, things just got a lot better.

Chatroulette is offering the ability to purchase tokens for access to their premium membership area. So what do you actually get for a token?

Paid memberships allow users to select the gender of their chat partners. Otherwise, free account users just get the random cornucopia of mixed genders.

Users can purchase a minimum of $10 worth of tokens. This purchase will allow users to engage in a conversation with 100 females or 100 males. Additionally, users can refine their chats to specific countries.

I’m wondering how this will affect the overall traffic on Chatroulette. If the software or algorithms are siphoning off all of the female participants to a select few paying members, this is eventually going to have a negative effect on traffic.

Could this decision eventually lead Chatroulette down the same road as ShufflePeople and Chathopper? We’ll see.
