But the decision was apparently reversed as the app was available to some i Phone users as of Thursday.
Eng told CNBC the software would be "released into the wild" for the entire Apple and Google mobile ecosystems as early as next week.
On Friday, Eng said multiple times that the app is "not racist," downplaying the discriminatory post as "a bit of mischief on my part." He said that the administrators of the app "will not filter maids, banglas or uglies." Instead, he added, existing users will vote on whether a newcomer can join High Blood — if newcomers don't get enough votes, they can pay an initial to join.
Eng has also been touting High Blood as the world's first accountant-verified dating app with an income filter.
Despite the dismal public opinion of the app, Eng said High Blood has received 547 sign-ups.
Investors however, have steered clear, and the platform is so-far funded entirely by Eng and his co-founder. In his presentation last Friday, he also told the crowd that he expected High Blood to break even in about 22 months.
Tinder wore the crown as the top money-making app at the App Store, according to rankings posted online by market data firm App Annie on Friday.
Tinder, which made its debut five years ago, lets people swipe left or right on profiles to indicate those that they like as possible date partners.
Tinder Gold was described in a blog post as a "members-only service, offering our most exclusive features: Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day" and more.
The self-professed Trump supporter, who tweeted in June that he had been banned from dating site Ok Cupid, is fond of courting controversy.
He solicited nude photos for an art exhibition, which he called an "intellectual event" about the "unfiltered forms of humanity." That came to a halt, he told CNBC, because "there were not enough submissions to justify holding the expo." Eng has also taken to social media to comment on Google's firing of James Damore, an employee who wrote a controversial memo arguing that differences in pay between men and women in tech aren't entirely related to bias, but are partly attributable to biology.
"Think of it as your personal Swipe Right concierge—available 24/7—bringing all of your pending matches to you," Tinder said.
The Apple Store has gone offline ahead of tonight’s launch of the i Phone X.

Eng, a Nanyang Technological University graduate, justified those filters based on a market survey he said he conducted.
