About Bitcoin Pizza Day: Celebrating the $80 Million Pizza Order
22 May 2019 is Bitcoin Pizza Day. The date marks the ninth anniversary of the first Bitcoin transaction in which a Florida man paid for two pizzas with the cryptocurrency. The day has become part of folklore, not because of the transaction, but more the price: the man in question paid 10,000 Bitcoins for the two pizzas which today is worth over $80 million.
On 22 May 2010, now known globally as Bitcoin Pizza Day, Laszlo Hanyecz agreed to pay 10,000 Bitcoins for two delivered Papa John’s pizzas. Organized on a bitcoin forum, the Florida man reached out for help. “I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas so I have some left over for the next day,” Hanyecz wrote.
A British man took up Hanyecz’s offer and bought the two pizzas for him in exchange for the 10,000 Bitcoins. Since the inception of Bitcoin, Hanyeczs’ pizzas have become more and more expensive. Nine months after the purchase Bitcoin reached parity with the US dollar making the two pizzas worth $10,000 and in 2015, the fifth anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day, the two pizzas were valued at $2.4 million. Today, the Bitcoin price is just over $8,000 making the pizzas worth $80 million.
