Bound By Blockchain; Couple Exchanged NFTs Instead Of Rings
Yes, NFTs > Rings…
Gone may be the days of the good old fashioned wedding band exchange. You know the deal, usually, couples exchange vows and rings (the jewelry kind) before sealing the deal with and kiss, making it officially, official.
The ring overall, is a pretty solid tradition, it seems. Traditionally speaking, the wedding band is known as a symbol of love and devotion. It’s circular shape signifies eternity, as it goes on forever.
Rebecca Rose and Peter Kacherginsky celebrated their eternal union with a beautiful traditionally Jewish ceremony and a “small” modification to the usual exchange of rings. Instead of something shiny, a physical object that can be worn as a symbol of their union, Rebecca and Peter chose to give each other something that could never be lost, misplaced, stolen, or broken; one of a kind, non-fungible token. (NFT)
Non-fungible tokens or NFTs have been all over internet headlines and newsfeeds ( Nyan Cat anyone?), but some readers still not totally grasp what the heck they are. Hey, that’s ok, this stuff get’s confusing.
A non-fungible token, or NFT can technically contain anything digital. This can be an image, a gif, video, games, drawings, songs, you name it! The cool thing about NFTs is that just like other forms of art, say a photograph, the NFT can be one-of-a-kind or one of many reproduced digital copies of the original, but no matter what the blockchain keeps track of who has the original file.
Kind of cute, right? Sure, Rebecca and Peter are total geeks for cryptocurrency (LOVE IT!), and maybe that’s what inspired this techy take on the ring exchange but it turns out, there’s a much deeper meaning to these NFT cuties!
