When it comes to weddings, most of us imagine it to be one of the best and most important days of our lives, and we want everything to be perfect. Many of us wish to capture the moments forever in our hearts and some physical form- like in videos and photographs.
But with non-fungible tokens, the concept of digital assets has shot high, and fortunately for many, weddings can be tokenized too, as a form of a digital asset.
But what is mind-blowing is the concept of holding weddings virtually! Imagine attending a wedding in a different world- an artificial space whose wedding theme, guests, decorations, and even food are all virtual. Imagine attending a wedding as “characters.”
This will happen on February 6, when a Tamil Nadu pair Dinesh Kshatriya and his fiancée Janaganandhini Ramaswamy will conduct their Hogwarts-themed virtual wedding. The grand celebration will be the first of its kind in the Metaverse.
Wedding in Metaverse? What more?
While a couple hosted their wedding in the Metaverse, this is the first in Asia and is also unique in many aspects. The couple is reportedly Harry Potter fans and has decided to include their love for the series by holding their Metaverse wedding in Hogwart’s theme.
Following the announcement, the first-ever metaverse wedding NFT collection was released on Beyondlife.Club by GuardianLink.io, an NFT Ecosystem Technology Framework. NFT platform GuardianLink will also help facilitate the wedding by ensuring that everything goes smoothly on their big day.
The NFT collection of this metaverse wedding will be sponsored by CoinSwitch Kuber. It will essentially be an artwork incorporating backgrounds and attires from the Harry Potter and cyberpunk eras, as well as traditional wedding apparel portraying the bride, groom, and bride’s late father.
In addition, CoinSwitch Kuber has designed an NFT based on the movie The Matrix, which has the bride and groom’s names in the Indian language.
As stated by GuardianLink, this limited-edition NFT collection includes 12 NFTs, including 11 distinct NFTs of the bride and groom’s virtual avatars projected in traditional and western clothes, with and without the bride’s late father. The last NFT will be of the wedding invitation and have 50 copies.
Within nanoseconds of the drop, the NFT containing the bride and groom’s virtual avatars was acquired and resold. Fifty copies of the same were sold for $10 apiece, and one of them was resold on Beyondlife’s secondary Club’s marketplace for $100 in less than a second. In addition, one of the invites, which was sold for $10, is now worth $4,450. Apparently, weddings are popular enough to sell NFTs like hotcakes!
More from weddings on blockchain technology.
Earlier, another Indian couple sealed the deal in quite a tech-savvy way.
Anil Narasipuram and Shruti Nair of Pimpri-Chinchwad immortalized their marriage on paper and the blockchain in what is possibly another first in India. Couples appear to be using NFTs and the Metaverse to construct a lasting digital homage to their union as NFTs and the Metaverse sweep the world by storm.
Anil Narasipuram and Shruti Nair immortalized their marriage by exchanging NFT (Non-Fungible Token) ‘rings’ in front of a ‘digital priest.’
These instances tell us one thing for sure. That NFTs have a strong presence in India, how everything will play out, however, depends on an unpredictable future.
