“Since1910.com, which is where I picked out my wife’s engagement ring and our wedding bands," he writes. "I paid straight-cash-homie for the rock last year (pre-bitcoin), but when it came time to make the second half of the purchase for the wedding bands, I bitched about the headache of doing a bank wire through BofA to co-founder Brad Gross, and directed him to Coinbase, where he took just a couple of days to make up his mind and sign up.”
