Bitcoin Pizza Day


Bitcoin Pizza Day takes place on May 22nd of every year to commemorate Laszlo Hanyecz’s purchase of Two Papa John’s Pizzas for 10,000 Bitcoins. The holiday is a significant cultural origin story in the history of Bitcoin, and represents a real-world, commercial use of the cryptocurrency.

Beyond exemplifying a real-world use for bitcoin, the event has garnered mainstream media attention over the years as the price of Bitcoin has risen, making these pizzas the most expensive (somewhere in the 100s of Millions of dollars range) of all time.
