This Saturday marks the eleven-year anniversary of the first documented crypto purchase. Yes, it's that time again, Bitcoin pizza day is upon us! But what’s all the fuss about?
On the 22nd of May 2010, the now-famous Laszlo Hanyecz paid 10,000 BTC for two Papa John’s pizzas, marking it the first known commercial transaction using Bitcoin. Back then, the takeaway only cost him around $40. Today the same transaction would set you back a pretty penny of around $383,000,000. For any die-hard HODLer out there, this sounds like a bad fever-dream, but for Hanyecz the exchange wasn’t about money but instead about the beginning of the mainstream adoption of BTC.
“Somebody had to start it off”. - Laszlo Hanyecz in 2019 interview with CBS.
For many, the story sounds like a poor practical joke, for many others, it marks the beginning of cryptocurrency adoption by the masses. Here at StormX, we pride ourselves on being able to offer our members the sweetest Crypto Cashback offers when they shop online (and in-person with upcoming debit card 😉).
