Today, May 22th, is Bitcoin Pizza day. But what is Bitcoin Pizza day actually?
Back in 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz, more famously known as the ''Bitcoin pizza guy'', bought two Papa John's pizzas for 10,000 BTC. It seemed like a really good deal as one BTC wasn't even valued at one U.S penny. However, one BTC today is worth about $8000. 800 million dollars for two pizzas...
The pizza story is the most well known initial real-world Bitcoin transaction.
Despite trying to avoid thinking about just how rich he could be now, he says he is proud to have been a backer of the currency in its early days and that buying the pizza serves as a reminder that the cryptocurrency was originally invented to be used just like that
As you problably already noticed, a lot of exchanges are celebrating the Bitcoin pizza day with Give Aways. BitForex for example is giving away 1 BTC + BF tokens.
