A couple from Tamil Nadu is all set to host their wedding reception in the metaverse. Dinesh S P & Janaganandhini Ramaswamy will tie the knot in the month of February and then have a Hogwarts-themed reception in their digital avatars.
The couple’s friends and family from across the globe will also be a part of the event, and will be able to enter the digital venue using the login details that will be given to them, according to The Times Of India.
“I have been into crypto and blockchain technology, and have been mining ethereum, a form of cryptocurrency, for the last one year. Since blockchain is the basic technology of Metaverse, when my wedding was fixed, I thought of having a reception in Metaverse”, Dinesh told TOI.
Dinesh, a project associate with IIT Madras, also tweeted a video invite of the upcoming reception. “I feel so proud and blessed that I have seen and taken advantage of many great opportunities in this world before millions of people have seen them, Beginning of something big! India’s first #metaverse marriage in Polygon blockchain collaborated with TardiVerse Metaverse startup”, he wrote in his tweet.
