Well, it matters what sort of gift and if these people actually like bitcoin. Cause if they don't this is something that's just dumb, now they're going to have to figure out how to sell this thing cause they're going to have no use for it in the least. Though if they do support Bitcoin or something that's going to be different, though I will have to say I highly doubt many people that you know are going to be supporting this but if you do find them and think this is the best gift for them while they're going to be trying to build a family them so be it.

In some circumstances, yes.

It is a good idea to present bitcoin as a weeding gift but provided that the receiver is knowledgeable in the activities of bitcoin. because there is no sense in sending bitcoin to someone who has nothing to do with bitcoin. If  I have the opportunity of presenting it as a wedding gift I would honorably do so.

It is not practical. In my hometown, very few people know about Bitcoin. So even if I give BTC as a gift, the couple is not likely to use it. Either they will give it to someone for free, or they will throw it away.

If my friend gets married, I will not give a bit of bitcoin I have because a little bit for me is very useful and maybe I will give some money to give a honeymoon gift to them and if my friend ask how I can give such a gift and I will reply This. From where I get my answer from bitcoin if you are interested, I will know how it works

Nah. Most people are too blinkered to value it so they'd probably use the paper wallet to light the wedding cake candles. I'm not into completely squandering money.

For me if you will give them bitcoin as a gift I do not think that they will throw it from away because nowadays many people has know about bitcoin .I think they accept bitcoin with very pleasure, and so then if they don't accept it ,you need to tell them about the power of bitcoin now and then they know its power I hope they will accept it.

No sorry for that but my bitcoin is precious to me.  I will give a good amount of money or maybe getting them a trip for honeymoon.  And when they asked where I got my money there I would say about the bitcoin.  Maybe I could encourage them to try it.  If I would give bitcoin as a gift and they do not know anything about bitcoin, perhaps they will not much appreciate it.

Right? To Hell with all that sharing bullshit, I bled for these coins. Angry

They are getting a toaster like everyone else, LOL. Cheesy

But seriously, let's face it people: bitcoin is money. If you give someone money at a wedding, like many people do everyday, the newlywed couple will most likely spend it on important stuff like good, bills, and drugs. If this was gold bars, it would get sold. If it was a stack of fiat, it would be spent. What I'm trying to say is, if you give people value, since most of us are behind a bit it gets spent. The fact that it's bitcoin is just an inconvenience at this point; now they have to find an ATM or register on an exchange. And take a loss. Sad

Give toasters, not bitcoin.

It was still worth it. Even if you managed to get that 7% interested in Bitcoin it was a great achievement. I'm sure those holders are now happy and telling people how you gave them an opportunity to earn a lot of money, by essentially doing nothing, just not selling.

I am sure that some people around here would have an upset girlfriend/fiance/wife if she was given Bitcoin as a gift...She would then see the price of it then get all happy..

Bitcoin is more a gift for ppl who don't use it and you want to motivate to participate.
I would not give it as a gift for that reason, however If it's a couple that prefers money and which I know well.
I would see myself giving them some Bitcoin.

Some tech-savvy wedding-goers are gifting the digital currency to new couples. Honeyfund, a honeymoon registry that allows guests to give cash rather than gifts, has seen more than a dozen customers donate in bitcoin, said chief executive officer and co-founder Sara Margulis. In recent years, more than a dozen customers have chosen to route donations to the site from bitcoin wallets. Zola, a wedding registry website, has had just two cash funds created for bitcoins since 2013, a spokeswoman said. "I would expect it to pop more as millennials come into the wedding age,” Honeyfund’s Margulis said. “It’s something you will do if your friends and family are already into bitcoin.

Bitcoin as an retirement plan, bitcoin to secure the future of your kids, and now bitcoin as a wedding gift. Whether or not bitcoin replaces cash in future, it looks like the trend of gifting bitcoin instead of cash at weddings is definitely going to catch up and more wedding registeries would be adding bitcoin as a gifting option.

Quote
Avoid using a wedding gift "as an opportunity to proselytize a technology you personally believe in, but the recipient could not care less about."

People who are not into bitcoin might not appreciate getting a volatile currency as a gift, and might never use it, thus adding it to the list of lost coins, but I think people who are already using bitcoin or would most probably use it in future then bitcoin instead of cash is the apt wedding gift for them.

It was really easy to give bitcoin to the people who also doing or investors ofinvest bitcoin butis i guess the bitcoin value is value too much so if i dont hav enough bitcoin it will be hard go give a bitcoin because it is so precious to everyone because its really cause a lot.

I would rather accept them in my wedding and not give them away Cheesy though I have already got more than a few coins as a pre-wedding gift.

Bitcoin is very expensive now so not willing to give such an expensive gift to anyone as bitcoin is also an investment for me so won't just give away my investment to someone else and will prefer to gift something else which is less expensive.

I am thinking about giving physical Bitcoins as a wedding gift to my cousin, who is going to get married in December 2017. He used to be a Bitcoiner until a few years back, although he is no longer interested in them. Perhaps this gift will rekindle his interest in BTC.

Some tech-savvy wedding-goers are gifting the digital currency to new couples. Honeyfund, a honeymoon registry that allows guests to give cash rather than gifts, has seen more than a dozen customers donate in bitcoin, said chief executive officer and co-founder Sara Margulis. In recent years, more than a dozen customers have chosen to route donations to the site from bitcoin wallets. Zola, a wedding registry website, has had just two cash funds created for bitcoins since 2013, a spokeswoman said. "I would expect it to pop more as millennials come into the wedding age,” Honeyfund’s Margulis said. “It’s something you will do if your friends and family are already into bitcoin.

Bitcoin as an retirement plan, bitcoin to secure the future of your kids, and now bitcoin as a wedding gift. Whether or not bitcoin replaces cash in future, it looks like the trend of gifting bitcoin instead of cash at weddings is definitely going to catch up and more wedding registeries would be adding bitcoin as a gifting option.

Quote
Avoid using a wedding gift "as an opportunity to proselytize a technology you personally believe in, but the recipient could not care less about."

People who are not into bitcoin might not appreciate getting a volatile currency as a gift, and might never use it, thus adding it to the list of lost coins, but I think people who are already using bitcoin or would most probably use it in future then bitcoin instead of cash is the apt wedding gift for them.

When gifting you must always think of the other person first, so don’t gift bitcoins just because you like them, if the couple likes it and they have an interest in bitcoin, then you can gift some bitcoin to them, many will not know what that strange gift is but the couple will be grateful for it, just don’t give to them out of your personal stash or you may regret giving those coins.
