Announcement of Change of Ownership
To our incredible community,

We wanted to let you know of some super exciting news, LeoList is now under new ownership.

LeoList has been connecting people in every Candian city for over 5 years and with your help and support has experienced incredible growth and health as a company. You all make LeoList what it is today and we're really thankful.

In light of the changing payment landscape and events beyond our control the sale of the business to a more experienced and commercially robust company was the best solution to ensure we can continue to deliver a world class service, to you.

Under new ownership, we'll continue to deliver innovation, continuity and be your No.1 choice in Canada. Some exciting new innovations are:

Substantial quarterly donations to bodies and organisations whose principles are in line with those of our users
A further-refined and improved customer service process including proactive moderation, live-chat and, as always, active support for law enforcement officers
Establishing a Community Board comprised of advertisers through which the voice of our customers can reach our owners
Relaunching LeoList and hosting our site on a brand-new domain
Releasing features centred around increased interaction for users and their audience, including an Instagram-like gallery, improved private chat and ad statistics
Switching to the use of third-party service providers who recognize the importance of privacy in today's world. Providers such as ProtonMail
Working with payment providers who are conscious of our user's needs and concerns

As a community and as a business we're excited to continue to serve you and provide your customers with only Canada's finest. Continue to watch this space for future announcements!

We look forward to the next chapter of our growth, together.
Thank you very much!

Only the best,
LeoList

I just saw that. I wonder if there will be any significant changes compared to now. I guess time will tell?

They need to buy out escortalligator too. Too many fake ads and nothing is being done about it.

This sounds like they made an announcement to "change owners" but it's the kind of change that just happens on paper. The reason is likely that they're feeling pressure from payment processors, because their business is so gray-area. They created a new corp, perhaps overseas, switched to cryptocurrencies only, and announced that they got bought out.

What implications will this have? That remains to be seen.

Yes the new crypto currency change seems to have an effect on the amount of girls advertising.
Don’t see as many girls posting anymore. Must be cause they aren’t familiar with the whole bitcoin thing yet...?

Sounds like an business opportunity for some enterprising young punter :)

I was talking to a provider the other day and he/she told me that leolist price has gone up by 10x in the past year. Not sure how much it was before and to how much it increased to. But thought that was interesting. I wonder how it's like now...
