Bitcoin Pizza Day : Marking a Milestone in Digital Currency Adoption!

HoneyBadger blog

Today marks National Bitcoin Pizza Day, a significant event in cryptocurrency history! 

On May 22, 2010, Florida resident Laszlo Hanyecz made what is considered the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin by purchasing two Papa Johns pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins (BTC).

 At the time, these bitcoins were valued at approximately $41 USD, making each bitcoin worth just under $0.10. Fast forward to today, and those same coins would be worth around $700 million, given the current Bitcoin price of about $70,300 USD. This transaction not only represents the most expensive pizza purchase in history but also marks a pivotal moment for the adoption of digital currencies.

This day highlights the humble beginnings of crypto commerce and its evolution into a revolutionary force in the global financial landscape. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies continue to demonstrate their potential to transform how we conduct transactions, promising a more diverse and innovative financial future.

In celebration of this groundbreaking event, HoneyBadger invites you to explore the world of cryptocurrencies. You can make purchases through our kiosks across Canada, our online platform, or our Over-The-Counter (OTC) service for larger transactions.

Join us in commemorating a key milestone in the world of Cryptocurrency!
