One advantage of the blockchain is the ability to have important events stored on it for immutable posterity, safe in the knowledge that such moments become a record of history which can’t be changed.
One of life’s most memorable is the act of marriage and, as Nevada residents have discovered, tying the knot is now a tamper-free digital reality, as both births and marriages are now stored on blockchain.
Washoe County in northern Nevada has been responsible for the latest program of digitally recording marriage on the blockchain. Its digital marriage certificate program has chosen the Ethereum blockchain for the task for the sake of security and simplicity, according to Phil Dhingra of San Fransisco-based Titan Seal.
Dhingra claims that newlyweds seem happier with the services, given that they are no longer forced to wait up to ten business days for the paper certificate. The new digital version arrives in the post 24 hours after the ceremony having been written to the blockchain as “Proof of Marriage”.
As much as they would like to be, the Washoe County registrars can’t claim to be pioneers of the service in the US as, although still quite rare, marriages on the blockchain have been turning up since 2014. At a DisneyWorld Bitcoin conference at Coins of the Kingdom, David Mondrus and Joyce Bayo were the first to have their marriage recorded on a blockchain, vowing, “For better or worse, ’til death do us part, because the blockchain is forever.”
the first marriage information is linked to the original chain. Historically, the first blockchain marriage was American couple David Mondrus and Joyce Bayo on October 5, 2014. Register at the Blockchain Public Registry and hold a wedding at a private Bitcoin conference inFlorida
