Former Barcelona footballer Kevin Prince Boateng, commonly known as Prince, married Italian model Valentina Fradegrada in Moon in the metaverse.
“I wanted to do something special for Valentina, something that no one had ever done before. Thanks to OVER, we can celebrate our love like no one has done before, in a space location,” Prince had previously said.
An animated video was shown, including an invitation card and a statue of the couple. The 35-year-old played for various stations in Italy during his career. For Boateng, it would be the third marriage.
Imagine putting together a slightly crazy wedding planner who loves challenges and Over The Reality (the decentralized platform for the AR Metaverse) and the love that unites two people such as soccer star Kevin-Prince Boateng and Valentina Fradegrada – famous influencer, entrepreneur, DJ, and five-time Wushu Kung Fu champion.
The occasion was also available as limited edition NFTs on the NFT marketplace Opensea for a short period of time. The former Ghana international stated:
“I wanted to do something special for Valentina, something that nobody had ever done. And thanks to Over, we can celebrate our love like no one has done before, in a space location.” The couple, however, also wanted their fans to participate in their wedding. And so it will be. In fact, all participants will be able to access it through an exclusive NFT. In the location, in addition to the newlyweds and their inseparable four-legged friends, I will also be present who will celebrate the first wedding in the metaverse.
A metaverse is a world where physical reality merges with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in a cyber world. Important components in this world are also digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, with which, among other things, digital art can be purchased. In the US, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, in particular, trusts the Metaverse.
According to Pulse Sports, the former AC Milan player married his new partner on Saturday, June 11. The wedding ceremony took place over the metaverse.
