Every couple tries to have a unique wedding and to be out of this world. But this american couple from California nailed it and did something that no one did before them.
Rebecca Rose and Peter Kacherginsky both are employees of Coinbase, an American cryptocurrency exchange platform. The couple decided to solemnise their ceremony with some advanced tech elements, and exchange “virtual rings” instead of the real ones.
Rebecca Rose tweeted: ” our digital rings now exist on the blockchain for all to see as proof of our dedication and love. While most people get married in a place of religious worship, on a beach, or in the mountains. Peter and I are NOT most people. We got married on the #blockchain”.
Rebecca continued: “In addition to a traditional Jewish ceremony, we wanted to solidify our vows in a more personal way”. She added that she and her husband wrote a smart contract for their marriage that issued digital artwork.
The couple named the token Tabaat, which means “rings” in Hebrew. The couple even shared a small animation to explain its significance, and said: “We stored an animation by artist Carl Johan Hasselrot inside the unique tokens, which illustrates two distinct things becoming one, like in marriage”.
They exchanged NFTs by sending them to each other from #cryptocurrency wallets at the venue where they had their first date, and was proposed. They even recorded their marraige that will be permanently stored on the blockchain, that truly captured the couple’s bond and their passion for cryptocurrency.
On social media, people were rather amused by this event and unique idea, while others thought that it would become a common thing in the future, and others thought it is pretty “crazy”.
