Bitcoin themed wedding in Lebanon

In Lebanon, bitcoin (BTC) supporters have taken their love for cryptocurrency to the next level. Nassar, an engineer in international trade, said his wedding day was about Satoshi Nakamoto’s token of innovation, bitcoin.

Nassar told Cointelegraph that he set up a volcano stand at the wedding and “distributed gifts through the Lightning Network.” In fact, under each cover of the post-ceremony banquet there were instructions to download Bitcoin wallet Lightning Network in order to get 4,000 Satoshis. Today, due to weak prices, the gift was worth about $0.80, at the time of the wedding the gift was worth $1.60.

Nassar is an indomitable defender of Bitcoin. So naturally, her wedding day would be the perfect time to “give the orange pill” or educate more people about the importance of bitcoin. He is the leader of Lebanon’s first bitcoin-themed escape room and jokes that he has a half-hour limit on talking about non-bitcoin topics while socializing:

“I try to explain monetary policies and what fiat money is to everyone I meet for more than 30 minutes.”

Oddly enough, Twitter user Stackmore also sees weddings as the perfect time to start a family and start stacking bags. Stackmore has sent Satoshis as wedding gifts for the past five years:

In Lebanon, Nassar’s home country, the inflation rate exceeded the 200% threshold in January of this year. In comparison, Bitcoin has a fixed supply of 21 million tokens, and benefits from a scheduled issuance rate that avoids deflation of the currency.

Despite calls from senior leaders to avoid buying bitcoin in Lebanon, groups like AlJazeera report that bitcoin adoption is booming in the country. For Nassar, it is necessary to start with the family and friends, because “hyperbitcoinization starts at home. He has already introduced bitcoin to his relatives:

“All my close friends and family members have bought bitcoin, and my mom is a complete monitor.”
