Celebrate Bitcoin Pizza Day: Everything to Know About the $700M Pizza Order

May 22 marks the anniversary of the first bitcoin transaction, when a Florida man paid 10,000 BTC for two pizzas, worth roughly $700M today.

On May 22, 2010, Laslo Hanyecz paid 10,000 bitcoin for 2 Papa John’s pizza (worth roughly $40 at the time).

The purchase is considered to be the first ever transaction made with bitcoin. The pizza order, worth over $700M by Bitcoin’s current value, paved the way for bitcoin to start a financial revolution that has brought sound money to millions of people around the world.

The holiday emphasizes bitcoin’s massive rise in price since its creation in 2008 and its humble beginnings on BitcoinTalk Forum, where Laszlo posted his call for ‘a couple of pizzas’.

Bitcoin’s price has risen to over $70,000 for one bitcoin since Laszlo ordered his pizza, and doubled in less than 6 months alone - showing bitcoin’s ongoing upward price action. 

Today, Lolli is commemorating the legendary bitcoin milestone by giving away free bitcoin.
