Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day
« on: May 22, 2020, 02:52:04 PM »
This story might have been posted here before, but today's make another year.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of BitcoinPizzaDay.

On this day ten years ago Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 $BTC.

Here's a thread of Bitcoin Pizza Day facts you might not know:
The fee paid for this famous transaction was huge by today's standards: 0.99 BTC! Today that's worth $9050.

A common misconception is that 10,000 BTC bought one pizza. It actually bought two! ????????

The two pizzas were bought from @PapaJohns.

The transaction wasn't direct. Laszlo sent the 10,000 $BTC to a fellow Bitcointalk forum user who then paid for the pizza to be sent to Laszlo with fiat.

At that time 10,000 BTC was worth ~$41. Bitcoin has increased in price by around 23,000x since then.

You can still see pictures of the famous pizzas here:

Laszlo didn’t just complete this deal once. It was an open offer and seemingly occurred many times.
