In a strange bit a news, it appears that the upcoming nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be a very modern affair, with an entirely new cryptocurrency established to celebrate the happy event.

The coin is called the Royal Coin, naturally, and had its initial coin offerng this week. The virtual currency is backed by the British Monarchist Society and Foundation, and proceeds from the token sale will be given away to charity.

“The Royal Coin is a decentralized wedding gift to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry and Miss Meghan Markle,” Shahar Namer, CEO of ICO Rocket, told Digital Trends. “Participants in the ICO have access to a unique offering, by celebrating the Royal wedding as well as contributing funds to three charitable organizations officially approved by Kensington Palace.

“It is not only a commemorative investment, but also a gift to the couple and [their selected] charities… It is a 2018 way to celebrate great British pageantry.”
