If the couple really is into it, why not.

But surely I will get a nice physical coin then load the right amount to it myself.

In my perspective bitcoin would be the best gift for our kids as their wedding gift because they will get benefit of it in future and can make their lives much better using it. I will do so if i would have that much funds until my kids become young.

I once thought If I had more, I would give it.
I will give it, but I see who gets married if he knows about bitcoin I will give it.

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.

That is a brilliant idea. I would totally do it. Instead of spending a bomb on my childrens' weddings, I would anyday give them a nice gift. And this would be a sensible gift. They'll be able to use it in the future.

I still prefer the traditional way of giving gifts to wedding celebrants instead of bitcoins unless the groom and bride wishes for it. One of the reason I still prefer the conventional way was because the gift we were giving on newly wed couple can have sentimental value to them and can be stored or use as they were living together.

Same with you I think bitcoin is a perfect gift for couples. It is like they have a starting money for everything they can buy their stuffs and all that. I guess it is a good start for the newly wed. If they don't prefer bitcoin they can convert it to physical money.

It is indeed a cool gift and an unusual gift to the newly wed couple. People who have no any idea about Bitcoin will definitely puzzled and think that it is just an ordinary gift but when they will going to know the real value of it, they will surely want to get some as well Smiley

Not really, i mean giving weeding gifts should always be giving somthing that the couple will need and if you give them bitcoin they won't understand the value of it, and i don't want to be that uncle that gives wierd gifts at a wedding, it would be probbaly the best form and for them to not give them bitcoin, but instead use that bitcoin to buy them somthing good.

It is a unique gift. Bitcoin as a wedding gift was very done. Maybe we can give the gift to those who use bitcoin. So they can use the gift in the future but if they do not know bitcoin you should not give in bitcoin form but something you get from bitcoin result .. you can buy another.

If the couple really is into it, why not.


This will be my only reason to give it. I hate giving gifts that receivers won't appreciate. What is the essence of giving to someone what he or she doesn't understand? Other than this, I won't give. For instance, In 2016 I wouldn't have appreciated a gift of Bitcoin as I virtually didn't know anything about it then. Now, I will greatly.

There is still a chance for you to enlight the life of your would be kids. Our grandparent's had the pension but in next 20 years, crypto payments will dominate the financial industry so saving some Bitcoins for your kids in cold storage and giving them this gift on their 20th birthday would definitely a good idea. Even small amount of Bitcoin of today would be valuable at that time IMO. However, please do your own research before taking any decision.

Bitcoin in a form of a private key put on a nicely made poster or a gift card can also be stored and have sentimental value long after they've spent their coins. There are physical bitcoins that can be stored as a reminder. I think it's a perfect gift, because its value grows over time.
In my country people usually give cash as wedding gifts and this is a lot more plain and boring than bitcoin.

I would give bitcoin as a wedding gift, because bitcoin is a big help with their lives especially when they started a couple, I think they so much appreciate and accept bitcoin as a wedding gift. After this i believe they also begin to invest in bitcoin. It can be use bitcoin in their needs and for savings. I think this idea is good as a gift with a value, because bitcoin gives bright future of the family.
