Relaxing after a long week in the alternative digital currency world? If so, it's time to kick back, count your coins and remember that we're all here to have fun.California offers much weddings for dogecoin
While the list of places where you can spend your bitcoin is steadily growing, there aren't nearly as many locations that will accept the less than one-year-old digital currency dogecoin.
However, dogecoin lovers have gained a new service that will take their dogecoins as payment -- a marriage service based out of Los Angeles County in California. Long2Wed has been accepting both bitcoin and dogecoin for just over a month, offering confidential marriage licenses and marriage ceremony facilitation.
CoinDesk spoke with officiant Anthony Matthews, who said that he uses the Android mobile app to accept payments in digital currency. He voiced excitement over the prospect of being the first marriage officiant to accept dogecoin, saying:"[Dogecoin] is an interesting social experiment, and integral part of the whole cryptocurrency theme."
He explained that the type of marriage licensure and officiation he offers is similar to traditional marriage licenses without some of the bureaucratic hassles involved. In a way, Long2Wed is a decentralized wedding solution that appropriately integrates digital currency.
Matthews added that he believes his wedding services would cost about 500,000 dogecoins, and that he has not had a bitcoin or dogecoin customer.
Those in the dogecoin community looking for a destination wedding might want to factor this interesting service into their plans. Given the high costs of actually holding a wedding, this could be a fun and innovative way to pay for the event.Unique asset backs new altcoin uro
