Couple From India Uses NFTs To Digitize Their Wedding Over Ethereum Blockchain

A couple from India used nonfungible tokens (NFTs) to digitize their wedding to create love for each other till eternity over the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain.

It has been reported that the recently married couple from Pune, India, Shruti Nair and Anil Narasipuram decided to take their court marriage to the next level by hosting a blockchain wedding.

Anil said:

"I read some articles on how people in other countries were doing blockchain marriages and it motivated me."

However, as a part of the Indian blockchain wedding, the couple was accompanied online by Anoop Pakki, who was responsible for minting the NFT, a.k.a. the digital priest.

Anil said:

"We read out the vows and after receiving the blessings of our digital priest, I confirmed the transaction to transfer the NFT to my wife's digital wallet. The transaction took a few minutes (and about $35 in ETH gas fees) after which we were pronounced husband and wife by our digital priest!"

The report said that the couple unanimously read the vow:

"We won’t make any big promises, but we will do everything we can to make this work. Through all our disagreement and conflict, we hope to grow our understanding of each other and ourselves. We don’t expect to be the whole village for each other, but we will be by each other’s side, hand in hand, walking through this adventure, together."

Likewise, the wedding vow, which was in the form of a digital image was then minted as an NFT by the digital priest on the OpenSea platform.

Thus, the description of the NFT read:

"This contract is between Shruti Sathian Nair, born March 17, 1988, and Anil Mohan Narasipuram, born October 11, 1986. The parties to this agreement are hereby declared husband and wife, on Nov 15 2021 and to have to hold, in sickness and in health, for now and in perpetuity."
