Exactly ten years ago, on May 22, 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made the first-ever purchase for bitcoin by buying two pizzas for 10,000 BTC.
On May 18, Laszlo posted a post on BitcoinTalk stating that he was ready to give 10,000 BTC for two large pizzas from Papa John’s. Of course, Papa John’s did not accept Bitcoin at that time. Laszlo sent 10,000 BTC, whose rate was then $ 0.0045 to another BitcoinTalk user from England. He, in turn, ordered the delivery of pizza to the address in the most usual way, paying it with a card through the site, which Hanich reported on May 22.
And here's how famous crypto-related persons are celebrating on Twitter:
On this day 5 years ago, we at @Bitstamp celebrated #BitcoinPizzaDay day with this one giant pizza. Price of 1 BTC was $250, today is at $9000. Looking forward to repost this tweet in 2025. https://t.co/vkQQ15ttq1— Nejc Kodrič (@nejc_kodric) May 22, 2020
