It began 11 years ago on the 18th May 2010 with these words "I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.." and in the following days Florida man Laszlo Hanyecz paid for two Pizzas with the 10,000 Bitcoin!
At that time 10,000 BTC was worth ~$41, today (24th May 2021) they are worth around 376 million USD.
The event has been marked in the calendar ever since and is celebrated around the world, at our Pizzeria we celebrate Bitcoin Pizza Day each year (Best we can with COVID!)
For 2021 although not the big event we planned (Due to restrictions!) Pepperoni Pizza was enjoyed, MtSocks Bitcoin Pizza Day socks were given away and FastBitcoin £10 vouchers were gifted to a few attendees.
