On this day in history, eight years ago, Laszlo Hanyecz from Florida bought 2 pizzas from a local Papa John's restaurant for 10,000 bitcoins.
It is believed that this was the first time that bitcoin was used to purchase a product in real life. Today, with bitcoin hovering around $8200.00, those pizzas cost around $82 million.
As the saying goes hindsight is everything.
Laszlo is giving all of us a reason to HODL.
Moral of this story - Don't buy pizzas with bitcoin.
Will you be celebrating Bitcoin Pizza Day? If so, what sort of pizza will you be having?
