Bitcoin Pizza Day 10 Year Anniversary!

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 He wrote,
