Two Coinbase employees managed to find a heartwarming use for NFTs by incorporating them into their wedding, exchanging the digital tokens as part of the ceremony.
Rebecca Rose et Peter Kacherginsky say that alongside their traditional Jewish ceremony, the couple also sent each other digital tokens as “virtual rings”. In a Twitter thread Regarding the wedding, Rose said their virtual rings now exist on the blockchain “for all to see as proof of our commitment to each other.”
Normally, a wedding photo with the couple at the altar using their phones would be, to say the least, a little depressing. But with the context where they basically swap rings, albeit in a non-traditional way, that makes him kinda cute. It also helps that you can actually see the exchange for yourself – obviously, it’s on the blockchain.
I know we strive a lot for NFT here at The edge, but honestly, the more I dig into the nerdy details, the cuter it got. For example, they named the token Tabaat, the Hebrew word meaning “ring.” If you search for the Tabaat token on Etherscan it shows that two tokens have been minted and nothing can ever be crafted again. How romantic.
There’s also the animation the couple commissioned to add to the NFT, which in itself is a pretty decent representation of the wedding.
The name of the token is Tabaat, the Hebrew word for ring. We have stored an animation by artist Carl Johan Hasselrot (@cjhasselrot) inside unique tokens, which illustrates two distinct things becoming one, as in marriage. #NFTArt 3/7 pic.twitter.com/5s8hLGbRdG

The charm of this story isn’t really in the technical details – most people probably wouldn’t find blockchain so romantic. It’s that two nerdy people found one nerdy thing that they both were passionate about and turned it into an important moment in their relationship. It’s something quite easy to like.
