Monday marks the seven-year anniversary of the first Bitcoin transaction, in which a Florida man paid for two pizzas with the cryptocurrency. The day has become part of folklore, not because of the transaction, but more the price: the man in question paid 10,000 Bitcoins, which today is worth $20 million, for the two pizzas.

On May 22, 2010, now known as Bitcoin Pizza Day, Laszlo Hanyecz agreed to pay 10,000 Bitcoins for two delivered Papa John's pizzas. Organized on bitcointalk forum, the Florida man reached out for help. "I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day," Hanyecz wrote.

"I like having left over pizza to nibble on later.  You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I'm aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don't have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a 'breakfast platter' at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you're happy!"

A British man took up Hanyecz's offer and bought the two pizzas for him in exchange for the 10,000 Bitcoins. Even then the recipient of the Bitcoins got himself a bargain, paying $25 for the pizzas, while 10,000 Bitcoins were worth around $41 at the time.

Since the inception of Bitcoin, Hanyeczs' pizzas have got more and more expensive. Nine months after the purchase, Bitcoin reached parity with the U.S. dollar, making the two pizzas worth $10,000 and in 2015 -- the fifth anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day -- the two pizzas were valued at $2.4 million. Today, Bitcoin has surged to an all-time high, trading above $2170, making the pizzas worth...you get it. (See also: The 6 Most Important Cryptocurrencies Other Than Bitcoin)

Despite the astronomical rise in the price of Bitcoin it seems Hanyecz is not phased about his deal. "It wasn’t like Bitcoins had any value back then, so the idea of trading them for a pizza was incredibly cool," Hanyecz told the NY Times.

We weren’t able to get much our of Laszlo, as he rushed out of the back of Pizza Hut after finishing his 10 hour shift, quickly changing into plain clothes.

When asked why he did it, he questioned why anyone in their right mind wouldn’t do it.

“Have you ever been so stoned that you completely disregarded any and all logic in the name of curbing your insatiable hunger? No? Then shut the f*ck up” he exclaimed.

These are the ACTUAL two pizzas that were paid for with 10,000 BTC.

Now, we can sit here and pretend like we feel sorry for him, but a lot of good has actually come out of this transaction. Not only was it the first transaction made by a holder of Bitcoin, in exchange for a GOOD, it paved the way for millions and millions of more transactions to come in the future.

Who knows, had he not made the decision to spend so much on two pieces of dough with cheese and meat on them, would the course of Bitcoin be one immensely different to that of today’s? That’s a question for the flat-earthers and pinapple-on-pizza’rers to discuss.

World Bitcoin Pizza Day

If spending, what is now worth over $245 million, on Pizza isn’t regrettable enough, our beloved crypto-community has made it a day to celebrate, every single year, to serve as a reminder to Laszlo just how good of an investment he made.

Ever wondered what the 10 000 Bitcoin pizza bought in 2010 .

Monday marked the 7th anniversary of what is widely believed to be the first real-world transaction involving Bitcoin, when one web user swapped 10,000 units of the virtual currency (then worth $0.003 apiece) for two pizzas.

“I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day,” a Bitcointalk.org user known as “laszlo” wrote at the forum on May 18, 2010. “I like having left over pizza to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I’m aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don’t have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a ‘breakfast platter’ at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you’re happy!”

Four days later, “laszlo” reported he’d successfully completed the transaction, after another participant in the forum (username “jercos”) agreed to provide two pizzas for 10,000 Bitcoins.

It’s pretty clear who got the better end of the bargain. Today, 10,000 Bitcoins are worth $21.7 million. The value of the cryptocurrency has surged in recent months, and on Monday hit a new record high of $2,172.

Put differently, according to CNBC, if you’d bought $100 worth of Bitcoin seven years ago and held onto it, you’d now have about $73 million.

Prices have doubled just in the past month and a half, driven mostly by increased interest among traders and investors.

“In the last month, exchanges – namely Kraken and Poloniex – have announced that they were experiencing a sharp increase in transactions,” said Charles Bovaird, lead markets writer for the Bitcoin-tracking site CoinDesk. “The entire cryptocurrency space has been attracting significant investor interest, with the value of these assets nearing $80 billion today. This represents a roughly 200% increase over the last month.”

Coindesk also reports that there has been a surge in Japanese transactions.

“The Japanese yen is the single largest currency being exchanged for bitcoin, accounting for more than 45% of the money flow into bitcoin at the time of report, according to CryptoCompare data,” the site reported.

As they say, even God favor the rich.

I always wonder how Laszlo Hanyecz would feel while looking at this crazy run. Smashing head against the wall.?

I hope not.

In an interview with New York Times, Laszlo said;

No one knew it was going to get so big.

10,000 Bitcoins were worth $41 back then and now? Don't even ask.

Laszlo even posted a thread on Bitcointalk.org before buying a PIZZA. He was looking for a peer-to-peer PIZZA deal but then it didn't work out and he head over to Papa Johns.

I tried to dig a little deaper on twhat the Papa John did with those 10K Bitcoins, did they hold onto it or not? But no luck.

But the good thing about all this is that Laszlo still love a slice of pepperoni, even if he get's burned by it on the first bite.
