The Tenth Year Anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day : Celebrating with Molecular Future
The 10th year anniversary of Pizza Day, what does this mean for you?
On May 22, 2020, people around the world celebrate the 10th anniversary of the historic first Bitcoin transaction. This historic anniversary comes only 10 days after the Bitcoin halving.
Bitcoin’s relationship with pizza started on May 22, 2010 when the cryptocurrency had not yet been used as a form of payment, until a programmer offered 10,000 coins for 2 pizzas.
It may seem absurd today, but at the time you could get several bitcoins easily just by mining the computer.
Who is the “Bitcoin Pizza Guy”?
On May 22, 2010, programmer Laszlo Hanyecz paid a fellow Bitcoin Talk forum — the main gathering place for bitcoiners at the time — user 10,000 BTC in exchange for two Papa John’s pizzas. At the time, when Bitcoin was a little over a year old, the amount paid equated to approximately $40.
Hanyecz posted posted:
I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day. I like having left over pizza to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I’m aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don’t have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a ‘breakfast platter’ at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you’re happy!
Another user, known as “jercos” accepted Hanyecz’a offer.
To complete the transaction, Hanyecz sent the Bitcoin to Jercos, who then ordered the pizza.
Hanyeczs’ pizzas have gotten more and more expensive since Bitcoin first burst on the scene. Some nine months after the pizza purchase, Bitcoin hit parity with the US dollar, making the two pizzas worth $10,000.
Today, on the tenth anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day, the two pizzas are valued at a mouthwatering $ 90 million.
