WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Peter Kacherginsky and Rebecca Rose, both employees of the cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase, got married in a traditional Jewish ceremony.
- But the couple also wanted to solidify their “vows in a more personal way.”
- Instead of traditional wedding bands, Peter and Rebecca exchanged vows with NFTs or non-fungible tokens as their wedding rings.
This couple has taken things off the norm and has surely made their wedding remarkable by having NFTs or non-fungible tokens as their wedding rings.
Rebecca Rose and Peter Kacherginsky, both employees of the cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase, exchanged virtual rings on their smartphones as they said their vows in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony.
In a Twitter post, Rebecca proudly said that, unlike most people, they “got married on the #blockchain.”
The couple named the virtual ring after the Hebrew word for ring, “Tabaat.” Online searches for Tabaat would show two minted tokens, with no provision to mint any more. The “rings” are shown in a digital art animation showcasing two distinct things becoming one.
Rebecca shared on Twitter that they wanted to solidify their “vows in a more personal way.”
She added that the wedding took place on March 14, 2021 at Gamble Garden which has herb and rose gardens, a historic home, a carriage house, and a tearoom. The venue, a non-profit organization, was also “the location of our first date and where Peter proposed,” tweeted Rebecca.
The bride also said that their virtual rings now existed on the blockchain “for all to see as proof of our commitment to each other,” and shared a screenshot of the Etherscan page.
In her latest tweets, she wrote that “the #blockchain, unlike physical objects, is forever. It is unstoppable, impossible to censor, and does not require anyone’s permission. Just as love should be.”
