It's Been 12 Years Since the $300 Million Pizza Order!


Celebrate Bitcoin Pizza Day with 2X bitcoin rewards at Papa John's, Domino's, & Pizza Hut on Lolli!


May 22, 2022 marks 12 years since Laszlo Hanyecz purchased 2 pizzas from Papa John’s for a grand total of 10,000 bitcoin – a purchase that was, at the time, worth just $25.

Today, with bitcoin’s price at roughly $30,096, Laszlo’s pizza order is worth about $300 million in bitcoin.

Here's the story of how it all happened.

In 2010, Laszlo, an early bitcoin developer, posted his call to buy 2 pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins on Bitcointalk Forum, a popular forum for early bitcoiners. At the time, one bitcoin was worth just a few cents.

In just over a decade, bitcoin has risen from a niche currency with meager value championed by a grassroots movement of developers to soaring in value, recognized as a global digital currency by a growing number of companies, countries, and public figures.

Bitcoin Pizza Day marks a momentous one in the bitcoin community, when we celebrate the meteoric rise in bitcoin’s value since it came on the scene in 2008.

Here at Lolli, we’re celebrating this historic day by doing what we do best – giving you free bitcoin! Read on for some of the ways we're celebrating.


Get 2X Back at Papa John's, Pizza Hut, Domino's, & More!
