10 years ago on May 22, 2010 something incredible happened to the cryptocurrency world. The first Bitcoin transaction for a consumer product was made. A Florida man bought two pizzas with 10,000 Bitcoins!
I know your jaw dropped a little… maybe a lot. As it stands today 10,000 bitcoins is worth around $145 million AUD! You can now see why this purchase is dubbed as the world’s most expensive pizza.
The man behind this famous purchase is Laszlo Hanyecz. His original post advertising his offer can still be viewed on bitcointalk.org. He wrote,
“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,Laszlo Hanyecz, May 22, 2010 Bitcointalk.org
Laszlo Hanyecz has since been interviewed numerous times to learn of his reasonings at the time of purchase and his feelings now about his history making pizza purchase. He has been quoted saying,
Back then it was not worth that much. I thought it would be cool thing to do, to buy something with this open source internet money.Laszlo Hanyecz
