I am willing to give a wedding gift of bitcoin to my friend who is married nature. Unfortunately, in my country no one has implemented a bitcoin barcode scan for a wedding gift. If that happens in my area it will look really cool.

I think there is really no need for any barcode whatsoever, you just make a notice on a piece of letter with the username and password of a bitcoin wallet and finally with a P.S. that they will need to create a new bitcoin wallet and send it here so that it will be more secure with their own password.

just give the amount of bitcoin equivalent to your local currency in which you expect to give to them. it's not too small if the value is high, but frankly, giving 0.001 will just be eaten up by the transaction fee lol.
an alternative is that you can give them an altcoins which popular enough such as eth or such but still bitcoin is number 1 in priority

Yes sure why not. Unless you're giving the gift to the tech savvy couple be prepared to answer all the questions like "what is this?" and "how do i convert this to real money?" Paper wallet or hardware wallet would be the way to go.

it is a brilliant idea. we just need to give us a username and password wallet. The wallet was previously filled with some bitcoin as we wish. and do not forget to give way how to withdraw bitcoin to local currency. honestly this is a way that can make bitcoin more known. other than that this is very easy and they will say that what we do is a cool action. I really think to do it and in early October my friend will celebrate the wedding, it is worth a try and applied.  Cheesy

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.

I think that Bitcoin is a great wedding gift idea. Since nobody is that good a gift giver. Than a person who shares your interests and aspirations in life. If you and the couple are into Bitcoins.  Why not.

I think it would still need a few more years to be able to do just that. I sincerely think yhat there can be an openig or a possibility for bitcoins to be accepted as a wedding gift but I also think that it needs to earn more or to be priced higher to be recognized.

Now this looks little weird, but when days pass people starts gifting bitcoin when the popularity increases, one of my friend already has got bitcoin as a gift during the days of Christmas. But with that both were aware of the digital currency and it's value, but the same makes people think what's this gift with the unknown person. So same as we providing giftcard in future people use bitcoin for gifting purpose.

The idea is also good if you want hassle free gift to a dear one getting married instead of spending a day finding a more appropriate gift for the couple. When we give gifts we make sure the gift we are giving will be used or liked/loved by the person we are  giving to. We don't just give something we know will not be of any benefit  to them, so i think if the person getting married is known to us to be someone who is fond of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies or in short into the business of crypto, we can give them bitcoin and it would be something he may love.

when the value of each bitcoin is already at least $10,000, then that is the time that there will be a lot of people that will go in and dive to the bitcoin party. Some are still hesitant now because of  some news about China and all that but when they realized that the price is going stable and will go up and up, they will sure join in.

Not that I know of but Bitcoin in itself is somewhat a gift card because it carries a variable fiat equivalent of its value and can be redeemed into cash anytime you want. I will not give it as a wedding gift yet because a lot of the people in my sphere of contact don't know what it is yet but I will lady accept it as a gift for my wedding.

of course not, I never give such a valuable thing as a gift to any wedding ceremony. today a bitcoin price is almost above $3700, so this is huge for me, I would like to invest my whole Bitcoin rather than presenting as a gift. but if any of my first blood demands for this type of gift from me at their wedding then I would change my decision.

bitcoin as wedding gift is ridiculous but creative. It is quite funny to give bitcoin as wedding gift.But I am sure your gift will be exceptional and awesome if the bridegroom and  knows the value of bitcoin.I will try to use this idea on my friends' wedding.

If the wedding couple accepts Bitcoin as a payment method for gifts then people will start donating Bitcoins. I think still, many people don't have awareness about the Bitcoin and many people afraid accepting those.

Why not , I will willingly give out bitcoin as a wedding gift if conditions that can make the couples exchange it to fiat is achievable I will do so, after all bitcoin has become a globally acceptable virtual currency and if a reasonable amount is gifted to the couple that will go a long way in solving their financial inadequacy.

Giving bitcoin as a wedding gift, why not! I would willingly give it as a gift because I know it can help them to their starting up as a couple. It can be make as an investment to them, maybe it can be their start in business.

Why not? I mean, if you can give to the newly wed then why not? As long as they can have a bitcoin wallet, maybe this will be the best gift. But if I will give bitcoin as a wedding gift, I will not give 1btc, I will just give around .02 btc. lol. That is enough to give. That is also a good amount when converted in fiat.  Grin
