Today is a special day. Today is bitcoin pizza day! Imagine had you bought $100 worth of BTC for 2 pizzas in 2010.
In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz completed the first ever real-world transaction using bitcoin, when he traded 10,000 bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas!
What started as an idea back in 2010 on a Bitcoin Talk forum post has become the yearly celebration of worldwide cryptocurrency adoption. Every May 22nd, the whole world looks at Laszlo Hanyecz's vaunted 10,000 bitcoin purchase and imagines all of the pizza empires that could've been built with that very same bitcoin!
Bitcoin has come a long way since its 10 cents per bitcoin on May 22, 2010. That was the first recorded purchase for bitcoins with tangible items (2 pizzas) and it is famously referred to as Bitcoin Pizza Day. Celebrating this day, Crypto Crate Store will be running 15% off promotion from May 22-24, 2022.
