Is this sentence feminine? If the speaker is a man, should he say "Bin ich der Erste"?

Yes, it is. Yes, he should.

Would it not have been "Bin ich der Ersten?" for a man?

I did not capitalize "Erste" and Duolingo considered my sentence correct. Does it matter if I capitalize "Erste" here?

The only correct spelling is 'die Erste'.
