Nine years have passed on one of the funniest stories of the world’s most expensive pizza.
The details of the story go back to the programmer, Mr. Laszlo Hanyecz, who was using his computer for the Bitcoin mining .
The value of one BTC was then less than one cent, so was the reward mining is not worth a lot of dollars and can not do anything for them.
But Hanyecz had an idea in his head that he wanted to apply. According to his statement to the correspondent of the channel “60 Minutes” stated:
Honestly I thought it would be nice if I could say:
I’ve done it I’ve traded open-source Internet currency to buy something real on the ground.
“Hanyecz” used the forums to show him what he had in his possession of Petequin for pizza and he actually got those who would like to exchange it and got pizza twice for 10,000 BTC.
Based on the value of Bitcoin at the moment, Hanyecz paid $ 76 million for the pizza.
Since then, May 22 has been Bitcoin Pizza Day as it was the first day of the real world to be compared to a real product.
To become Laszlo Hanyecz, one of the Internet’s most famous celebrities, the Crypto community celebrates the day of its first exchange of bitcoin.
