It’s Bitcoin Pizza Day! The Day Someone Spent 10,000 Bitcoins On A Mediocre Pizza Dinner!

May 22, 2020 / by Crypto.IQ

Usually when someone buys pizza from Papa Johns they will be extremely happy and eat to their heart’s content, but by the morning the pizza is only a vague memory and all that remains is a parched feeling from overdosing on salt.

However one man in Florida named Laszlo Hanyecz will never forget a particular Papa John’s delivery order on May 22 2010, since he paid 10,000 Bitcoins (BTC) for a couple of pizzas. Now those 10,000 Bitcoins (BTC) are worth $90 million.

A picture of the actual Bitcoin Pizzas can be seen at this link, and also at the top of this article.

This is one of the most historic events in Bitcoin (BTC) history, since it was possibly the first time that a physical good was purchased with Bitcoin (BTC).

Also, it is astonishing how much the value of 10,000 Bitcoins (BTC) has skyrocketed, from roughly $41 on May 22 2010 to $90 million on May 22 2020.

It is quite possible that Hanyecz regrets handing over a fortune of Bitcoin (BTC) for pizza, although he may also be reveling in the fact that he is the central figure of one of the biggest crypto holidays.

On a final note, one person who certainly has no regrets over this crazy deal is Jeremy Sturdivant, who was the person who received the 10,000 Bitcoins (BTC) and only had to pay $41 in return.
