Bitcoin Pizza Day: 10 years ago, the most expensive pizza in BTC history
On this day, May 22, the famous is celebrated Bitcoin Pizza day commemorating the purchase of two pizzas for 10 thousand BTC.
Today is the tenth anniversary of this historic event for the blockchain world.
It was actually the distant May 22, 2010 when Laszlo Hanyecz he ordered 2 pizzas from Domino’s, located in Jacksonville, Florida (to commemorate the event, there is a plaque in a pizzeria), making a payment in BTC.
Since then, Laszlo has been known as one of the first people to make a payment for an asset using BTC.
Over time, this event went down in history because the amount of BTC used and its dollar counterpart were frightening.
In 2010, in fact, 10,000 BTC was around $ 43, but over the years their value has increased considerably:
- 2011, less than 100 thousand dollars;
- 2012, more than 100 thousand dollars;
- 2013, approximately $ 1.2 million;
- 2014, approximately $ 5.1 million;
- 2015, approximately $ 2.3 million;
- 2016, approximately $ 4.4 million;
- 2017, about $ 22 million;
- 2018, about $ 78 million;
- 2019, about $ 60 million.
We also remember that Laszlo himself commemorated the 2018 event with the purchase of 2 other pizzas by paying via Lightning Network and spend a total of around 0.00649 bitcoins (BTC).
