Some tech-savvy wedding enthusiasts are offering the digital currency to new couples as its value reaches new heights. You get the best and the worst. “It`s unfathomable to me that people still organize weddings,” wrote another. A new report about a newlywed couple who continue to pursue their wedding plans despite the fact that the groom tested positive for COVID-19 the day before sparked outrage on Twitter. The first marriage was registered in the blockchain`s public ledger on October 5, 2014. David Mondrus and Joyce Bayo`s wedding took place during a private Bitcoin conference at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. To legalize the marriage, the couple had to scan and confirm the QR code, which was then written directly into the Bitcoin blockchain.
