The most epic financial transaction of this century ( at least until now ), took place on May 22, 2010. Wall Street or the City of London was not the location where it happened. It was carried out in the city of Jacksonville, Florida and had nothing to do with secured debt obligations or stocks.
Every year, on the 22nd of May, bitcoiners from around the world celebrate the anniversary of the most expensive pizzas in history.
Bought on 22nd May 2010 by Laszlo Hanyecz, the programmer paid a fellow Bitcoin Talk forum user 10,000 BTC for two Papa John’s pizzas. Back then – when the technology was just over a year old – that equated to roughly $25, but is $5.12m by today’s exchange rate.
However, the most surprising part of this transaction was that the 18 y.o. pizza salesman Jeremy Sterdivant received compensation – 10 thousand units of newborn money, without any taxes or fees. Buying these pizzas “Pepperoni” was the first bitcoin transaction.
How will you celebrate Bitcoin Pizza Day? Why not head to your local joint and raise a slice to Laszlo Hanyecz, whose late-night escapade changed bitcoin forever or just start early and order your ticket(s) for Prague Gaming Summit and pay using your favorite Bitcoin wallet.
Who knows, maybe one day your ticket(s) could be worth $5.12m too.
