Today, May 22, 2020 marks the next day of bitcoin pizza, as It was on this day 10 years ago - in 2010, the first transaction for bitcoins was completed. Using the Bitcointalk.org forum, a user with the nickname Laszlo (Laszlo Hanyecz) sent another user Jeremy Sturdivant 10.000 BTC, in response, he ordered two Papa John's pizzas and paid for the order and delivery, which cost 40-50 USD at 2010. Now in 2020, this transaction is valued at 90,000,000 USD at a price of 9,000 USD for 1 BTC. Interviews with participants in this transaction can be found on the Cointelegraph. With the popularity of Bitcoin, the popularity of Bitcoin Pizza Day is also growing. It was on this day that the tradition of meetings of crypto enthusiasts developed, when you could hear interesting stories about how a person found out about Bitcoin and what things he spent his cryptocurrency on. The author of this article, for example, in 2015 spent 4 BTC on the purchase of kitchen appliances (refrigerator, gas panel, range hood, washing machine) when Bitcoin cost 350-400 USD. The next major purchases were made in the fall of 2017 in Tokyo (BTC = 6,000 USD), where even then you could buy audio-video equipment in large stores (Yodobashi Camera) by paying bitcoins.
