It all started when a native Floridian named Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizza using Bitcoin instead of fiat currency!
Some might assumed that Laszlo Hanyecz was actually out of his conscience for getting pizzas using 10,000 BTC but believe it or not, it was one of the contributing factor for cryptocurrency’s establishment right now.
Hanyecz has also said that, he bought more things with bitcoin after the first pizza purchase during an interview with 60 Minutes, an American Magazine.
He was one of the contributing factor for all of us to celebrate Bitcoin’s Pizza Day today. This historic event took place not only because of his purchase using Bitcoin, but for being the first person to utilise cryptocurrency when everyone else stays away from it cause of the consequences that follows.
According to a tweet by Bitcoin Pizza, the value of Bitcoin that was invested by Laszlo Hanyecz on pizza is $79,253,225 as of on 21 May 2019.
According to a bullish crypto trader, CryptoBull stated that the value of 10,000 bitcoin that was spend by Laszlo will be $80,000,000 on twitter account dated 22 May 2019.
This proves that, one will never know till they haven’t tried it out. Bitcoin was approximately less than two years old when Laszlo decided to invest his 10,000 Bitcoin on two pizzas that can be bought by fiat currencies. It is amusing to encounter the growth that Bitcoin has obtained as of today since then.
In order to celebrate Bitcoin Pizza Day, world’s famous cryptocurrency company, Huobi Global has come forward by selling their cryptocurrency at a discounted rate for their traders.
This day is not remembered for the amount spent on pizza but, for the real time transaction that was ever made in history. Undeniable that cryptocurrency being used widely and glorified for its fast and easier transaction process, although it may seem riskier to certain group of people across the world.
We need more people like Laszlo Hanyecz to prove the existence and benefits that can be derived from cryptocurrency.
