The Bitcoin community has shown me that nothing can stop a group of people who are passionate in their beliefs. In our case, we believe everyone in the world deserves the right to financial freedom. My goal is to make sure everyone can see that this Bitcoin movement has the power to change the world for the better through every story we publish. Before working with Bitcoin Magazine I was involved in freelance writing, illustration, renders, making electronic music, and 3d print designs (http://www.behance.net/urbenz). I'm also a married dude and a father of 2 who loves to have fun with his family, cook, and travel. Contact me by shooting a message to: ruben [at] bitcoinmagazine.com

In a step to decentralize the state’s authority to give a stamp of approval on love, David and Joyce Mondrous have gotten married on the blockchain.

How did David get married on the blockchain? Those who attended the wedding were shown a QR code that linked to the transaction where the data associated with the wedding was stored.

Any bitcoin transaction can store information.  In David’s case, he stored information related to his wedding, which I am actively looking into.

Jeffrey Tucker officiated (he would probably say unofficiated) the wedding ceremony which had a few attendies watching via Skype including David’s mother.

Jeffrey said something which made everyone in the room teary eyed:

“Love is the one thing that makes you create something that hasn’t existed.”
