Bitcoin Pizza Day: I have no regrets, says Laszlo Hanyecz
Bitcoiners everywhere are eating pizza today, and they’re not doing this because pizza is mouth-watering. They are doing it since it’s a custom that traces back to May 22, 2010.
Eleven years ago, a Floridian man named Laszlo Hanyecz settled that he needed a free lunch. He wrote on Bitcointalk (a Bitcoin-centered gathering):
I’ll pay 10,000 Bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe two large ones, so I have some leftover for the next day. I like things like onions, peppers, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni, etc.. just standard stuff, no weird fish topping or anything like that. If you’re interested, please let me know, and we can work out a deal.
