Every 22 May, the global crypto community celebrates a momentous moment: the first real-world Bitcoin transaction in 2010.

The order that started a revolution 

History has produced countless incredible and important quotes over the years. And we think this one from programmer, Laszlo Hanyecz, written in a Bitcoin forum back in 2010, should be on that list: “I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas… like maybe 2 large ones, so I have some leftovers for the next day…” 

With these 23 words, Hanyecz helped to begin validating Bitcoin and the nascent cryptocurrency industry in the eyes of the wider world. TL;DR, it proved crypto worked. 

Giving the world a slice of the action 

Since Hanyecz placed his famous order, things have changed in the world of crypto and Bitcoin is now worth considerably more. But haters who talk about how much 10,000 Bitcoin would be today (about $57,000 at the time of writing) miss the bigger points: 

  • From theory to takeout: Bitcoin Pizza Day signifies the first time someone used Bitcoin for an actual purchase, not just trading. This proved Bitcoin's potential as a real-world currency, not just a speculative asset.

  • A slice of progress: Bitcoin Pizza Day serves as a delicious reminder of how far crypto has come. We've gone from buying pizzas to facilitating a wide range of transactions, from travel bookings to charitable donations.

  • A community feast: The crypto community has embraced Bitcoin Pizza Day as a tradition, and we can’t think of two better things to celebrate than crypto and pizza!
