Win a year of free pizza and celebrate 15 years of Bitcoin


By Bitpanda

In the world of crypto, many dates stand out. However, two in particular shine brighter: On January 3, 2009, when the first block of the Bitcoin blockchain, known as the genesis block, was mined, and May 22, 2010, when a programmer famously paid for two pizzas using 10,000 Bitcoins. While the pizza transaction might seem like a simple footnote, it symbolises for many the first tangible Bitcoin transaction in history.

January 3rd: A Date to Remember

With the mining of the first block of the Bitcoin blockchain, known as the genesis block, the foundation for the most iconic and revolutionary cryptocurrency to date was laid. This digital currency didn't just introduce a novel way to perceive value and transactions without middlemen; it also challenged many conventional financial paradigms. And there’s nothing more fitting than pizza to mark the start of the revolution.

And that’s why we've teamed up with Grosso Napoletano to offer you a unique opportunity: a chance to win a year's supply of Neapolitan pizza!. We're also giving away 10 pizzas to 10 lucky users.

Taking part is as easy as saying "Mamma Mia"
