Bitcoin Pizza Day: P2P Digital Cash Actualized 12 Years Ago Today


Bitcoin Pizza Day is likely the famous remembrance day of Bitcoin’s history. It alludes to the day when BTC was first used to purchase a real-world product, on May 22, 2010.

The transaction took place after Laszlo Hanyecz posted to the most active medium of communication about Bitcoin at the time – the Bitcoin Talk forum:

“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!”
