A Bitcoiner gave 4,000 Satoshis to each guest and incorporated a volcanic motif into his wedding. In order to show his affection for his preferred virtual currency, Bitcoin.
An ardent supporter of Bitcoin (BTC) in Lebanon went even further in their devotion.
According to Nassar, an international business engineer, he planned his wedding around Satoshi Nakamoto’s invention, Bitcoin.
The theme of the wedding was volcanoes—a homage to El Salvador’s Bitcoin bonds. Commonly known as the Volcano bonds—and every wedding guest received Satoshis (the smallest denomination of a Bitcoin). As a wedding present for attending the Nassar family’s big day.
Bitcoin’s volcano erupted after the celebration
Nassar informed Cointelegraph that he used a volcanic stand and “gave gifts via the Lightning Network” at the ceremony.
The post-ceremony banquet’s silverware was really marked with instructions to download a Bitcoin Lightning Network wallet. And receive 4,000 Satoshis.
The gift was originally worth $1.60. But due to bearish price action. It is currently only worth about $0.80.
The wedding guest followed the link to a lengthy YouTube video. That not only explains how to set up a wallet. It also explains the benefits of purchasing Bitcoin.
75 of the 250 people who were to receive wedding Satoshi gifts downloaded wallets. They asked Nassar to send the 4,000 Satoshis their way.
This was the first time these folks had ever received Bitcoin.
Given that global Bitcoin usage may only reach 10% by 2030. His strategy for encouraging adoption has a 30% success rate.
Additionally, “all of them” (the wedding attendees) observed it and gave it some thought, according to Nassar.
Nassar is a fervent supporter of Bitcoin. Naturally, his wedding day would be the ideal occasion to “orange pill”. Or inform more people of the significance of Bitcoin.
He created the first escape room in Lebanon with a bitcoin theme.Quirkily stating that he can only talk about non-Bitcoin topics for a half-hour when he meets new people.
“I try to explain monetary policies and the concept of fiat money to everyone. I meet for more than 30 minutes.”
Curiously, Twitter user Stackmore believes that starting a family and stacking SATs are best done at the same time. For the previous five years, Stackmore has sent Satoshis as wedding presents.
In Nassar’s home nation of Lebanon, the inflation rate surpassed 200% in January of this year. Comparatively, Bitcoin benefits from a programmed issuance rate. That renders the currency deflationary and has a fixed supply of 21 million coins.
Top executives have urged people to steer clear of purchasing Bitcoin in Lebanon. Yet organizations like AlJazeera claim that usage of the currency is surging there.
As “Hyperbitcoinzation starts at home,” Nassar argues. That it is crucial, to begin with family and friends. He has already introduced Bitcoin to his loved ones:
“All my close friends and my family members have bought bitcoin, and my mother is a whole coiner.”
