Bitcoin Pizza Day: Celebrating the $80 Million Pizza Order

Bitcoin Pizza Day: Celebrating the $80 Million Pizza Order

The day has become part of folklore, not because of the transaction, but more the price: the man in question paid 10,000 Bitcoins, which today is worth over $80 million, for the two pizzas. On May 22, 2010, now known as Bitcoin Pizza Day, Laszlo Hanyecz agreed to pay 10,000 Bitcoins for two delivered Papa John's pizzas. Organized on bitcointalk forum, the Florida man reached out for help. A British man took up Hanyecz's offer and bought the two pizzas for him in exchange for the 10,000 Bitcoins.
