Today marks the 7th anniversary of #bitcoinpizzaday. Sooo… What is Bitcoin Pizza Day? It is the day on May 22nd, 2010 when the 1st transaction using Bitcoin for goods was completed.
Laszlo (a developer) paid 10,000 bitcoin for two Papa Johns Pizzas.
$20 million dollars!
That’s a lot of sauce!
See link HERE for the conversations on bitcointalk.org that actually got the transaction rolling.
It’s great comedy looking at it from today.
What better way to celebrate Lazlo's milestone than to order your very own pizza with bitcoin? Turns out there are much better ways of doing this in 2017 than just asking some random internet person to take your bitcoin and call in an order for you....
