It’s Bitcoin Pizza Day!

Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day!

Wondering what on earth that is? Allow us to explain…

On May 22nd 2010, Florida man Laszlo Hanyecz was in the mood for some Papa John’s pizza. But instead of simply ordering it or picking it up, he took a rather unusual approach to satisfy his cravings. Hanyecz took to the bitcointalk forum, stating that he’d pay 10,000 bitcoins for two large pizzas.

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, but back then 10,000 bitcoins were only worth around $41.

Fast forward to today and BTC is known all around the world - and not just by the crypto savvy!
