First marriage secured on the Bitcoin Blockchain
The Bitfury Group announced that team member Alex Shevchenko secured his marriage registration on the Bitcoin Blockchain. By using the Bitcoin Blockchain to secure their marriage registration, Alex and his wife, Daria, can ensure that proof of their marriage is stored in an immutable database that is accessible from anywhere in the world. By attaching the marriage certificate to a small amount of bitcoin and sending it as a transaction, the marriage certificate is now a matter of global public record and will maintain the highest level of security and perpetuity.
Bitfury’s main goal is to enable government registries to operate on the blockchain. In Georgia, Bitfury is successfully implementing blockchain to secure land titles with the intent of implementing the technology in other government departments.
