The 10,000 Bitcoin Pizza

Launched after a successful sale of the ‘Genesis Block’ coins, the ‘Bitcoin Pizza’ coin memorializes another day in Bitcoin history. On May 22nd, 2010 (16th month of BTC existence), the first ever purchase using bitcoin was made. Laszlo Hanyecz traded 10,000 BTC which he had mined for two pizzas, which the ‘buyer’ of the BTC placed an order to have delivered to his door. This transaction was incredibly significant, because it was the first time that BTC was demonstrated to have real-world value. The bitcoin address on the back is that into which the BTC was sent.
