There have been many viral events in the history of Bitcoin. However, none of them attracted as much attention as Laszlo Hanyecz’s story of buying pizza with Bitcoin.
Exactly 11 years ago, the event is celebrated as Bitcoin pizza day, as it was the first purchase made with Bitcoin.
Laszlo Hanyecz from Florida paid 10,000 BTC on May 22, 2010 to buy two pizzas. It was the first time a real business had accepted payments with Bitcoin.
At that time, 10,000 BTC was worth about $ 40. Today, about 380 million dollars. Hanyecz, who bought the most expensive pizza in history, was happy to be able to pay with Bitcoin, unaware of this.
When you look at the event from today’s conditions, you may not be able to make much sense. However, it was not possible to predict that Bitcoin would reach these levels in 2010. Because at that time, Hanyecz’s friends who responded to his post congratulated him on this shopping and expressed that it was an important milestone in the history of Bitcoin.
