As if we didn’t already have enough holidays, today, May 22, is Bitcoin Pizza Day.
On this day in 2010, Florida programmer Laszlo Hanyecz made the first-ever purchase using bitcoin. He ordered two Papa John’s pizzas (worth about $25) and paid for them with 10,000 bitcoins.
They’ve long since become the most valuable pizzas in history. In today’s bitcoinage, Hanyecz paid approximately $83,000,000 for his dinner.
I hope he at least got extra pepperoni.
