Coronavirus has compelled many couples to have small wedding ceremonies and have friends and relatives attend them virtually, but Anil Narasipuram and Shruti Nair from Pune seem to have truly redefined celebrations during the pandemic.
“Shruti and I made our marriage 'blockchain official' with an Ethereum smart contract that consecrated our commitment to each other in the form of an NFT (non-fungible token) minted on OpenSea,” Narasipuram, a design professor, said in a LinkedIn post.
NFTs are units of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore, not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files. It uses a digital ledger to provide a public certificate of authenticity or proof of ownership.
