We love pizza, and we love bitcoin. Put the two together and what does it make? Our favourite day of the year, that’s what.
It’s kind of a funny story…
In case you’re wondering what Bitcoin Pizza Day is, here’s a little backstory on how it all started. Let’s go back to 2010…
On May 22 of that year, Florida man Laszlo Hanyecz was in the mood for some Papa John’s pizza. We’ve all been there.
Anyway, instead of simply ordering it in or going to his local Papa John’s, Hanyecz instead took a rather unusual approach to satisfy his pizza cravings.
Hanyecz took to the bitcointalk forum, stating that he’d pay 10,000 bitcoins for two large pizzas so that he’d have enough for the next day. His request was carried out by a man based in the UK, who ordered him two pizzas in exchange for the cryptocurrency. It may sound crazy now, as one bitcoin is now worth over $50,000. However, back then, 10,000 bitcoins were worth around $41, so it wasn’t really a crazy spend.
Since then, Bitcoin Pizza Day has been celebrated every May 22nd. Even if you don’t invest in BTC, you can always just use Hanyecz’s epic request as an excuse to treat yourself to pizza!
How are we going to celebrate?
We plan to celebrate with some pizza (obviously). But on top of that, we’re giving you 50% of your monthly subscription fee back in WXT when you upgrade to our Premium or Elite price plans! This deal won’t last for long though, so grab your slice before it gets cold.
Not sure what to go for? Here’s our choice of favourite toppings.
