As you probably already know, today is the 10th Pizza Day. What is going on? Of course, about the 10th anniversary of the purchase of two pizza pies for 10,000 Bitcoins.
10. Pizza Day
Why remember and celebrate Pizza Day? First of all, pizza is one of the tastiest dishes that man invented. The second thing is to remind everyone about the main function BTC – about paying kryptowalutami for products and services.
Today, BTC is already seen as an asset, a store of value. Many say openly that in their eyes it is digital gold. And we don’t pay with gold for bread, cheese, newspapers or, indeed, pizza. The same applies already kryptowaluty. It is worth recalling, however, that BTC was ultimately intended to be used to pay for … everything.
It is worth remembering that in the first period of operation, cryptocurrency was associated with a strict alternative to the fiat currencies.
Unfortunately, also in the first months of operation blockchaina, BTC Coins were not worth much. They were actually worth nothing. Only a madman could think that after 10 years for one digital coin someone will be able to pay up to 10,000 USD.
Everyone who laughs today at the main character of this text, namely Laszlo Hanyecz, who on May 22, 2010 purchased 2 Papa John`s pizzas for the equivalent of 10,000 Bitcoins, must remember that BTC was just a Geek toy at the time. Probably Laszlo thought that buying two pancakes for 10,000 BTC, he does the business of life!
“It wasn’t like that Bitcoiny they had any value then, so the idea of trading them for pizzas seemed incredibly attractive. No one knew it would become so great.“
– he said in 2013 in an interview for “The New York Times. “
Today, you pay 9100 USD for 1 BTC on the exchanges. This means that 10,000 BTC is worth USD 91 million. In other words, Laszlo has eaten the two most expensive pizzas in the history of the world! However, we are convinced that both were so tasty that it was all worth it!
And we encourage you to eat a similar meal today as part of dinner. You will pay around 0.0015 BTC for two pizzas.
