The tenth anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day is approaching and in our central news this issue we will summarize a little what this event is about.
The Bitcoin Pizza Day is coming
This event is very important within the crypto community. The “Bitcoin Pizza Day” is celebrated on May 22nd. This event occurred 10 years ago when Laszlo Hanyecz posted in a forum that he would pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.
The offer was viewed as a joke by forum users, as Bitcoin was at a minimum at the time and was not considered a real currency. This made the exchange in the forum felt unfair since Hanyecz would get two pizzas practically free of charge.
It wasn’t that bitcoins were worth anything at the time, so the idea of trading them for pizza was incredibly cool.
The following comment appears in the current post::
“I’m willing to pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas. Maybe they’re two big ones so they have leftovers for the next day. I like having pizza left over to eat later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my home or order from a delivery, but I’m really looking for a food exchange in exchange for bitcoins that I don’t have to order or prepare myself, something like ordering a plate of breakfast in a hotel either way, they just bring you something to eat and you’re happy! “
Years later, Hanyecz has become an important figure in the history of the blockchain ecosystem and also a promoter of Bitcoin as a payment currency.
Hanyecz has been looking for new technologies to improve the exchange of cryptocurrencies for products and to be used more and more in different locations.
