Bitcoin Pizza Day, observed on May 22, marks the historic 2010 event when Laszlo Hanyecz, a programmer and BTC early adopter, made the inaugural documented Bitcoin transaction.
Hanyecz exchanged 10,000 BTC, valued at approximately $41 at the time, for two Papa John’s pizzas. This transaction aimed to demonstrate Bitcoin’s potential as a viable everyday currency.
Over the years, Bitcoin Pizza Day has gained significance, symbolizing the remarkable growth and influence of the crypto community. Annual dedicated events honor this milestone while acknowledging the astonishing value these two pizzas have achieved. At the current BTC price of around $27,000, their worth has soared to an astonishing $270 million. Join us in celebrating Bitcoin Pizza Day and reflecting on the evolution of cryptocurrency.
