First commercial bitcoin transaction

Laszlo Hanyecz in 2010 spent exactly $41 for two pizzas from the famous pizza chain Papa John’s, but instead of paying in dollars, he decided to make the transaction in #Bitcoin, paying 10.000 BTC.

Well, Bitcoins’ value has grown exponentially in recent years, and with that same amount of bitcoin today it would be possible to buy around 22.5 million of those same pizzas.

In honor of that first bitcoin transaction, a dedicated day was instituted, the #bitcoinpizzaday. A temporary virtual pizzeria called “Bitcoin pizza” was also opened last year.
