Launched after a successful sale
of the ‘Genesis Block’ coins, the
‘Bitcoin Pizza’ coin memorializes
another day in Bitcoin history.
On May 22nd, 2010 (16th month
of BTC existence), the first ever
purchase using bitcoin was made.
Laszlo Hanyecz traded 10,000 BTC
which he had mined for two pizzas,
which the ‘buyer’ of the BTC
placed an order to have delivered
to his door. This transaction was
incredibly significant, because it
was the first time that BTC was
demonstrated to have real-world
value. The bitcoin address on the
back is that into which the BTC
was sent.
