Happy ‘Bitcoin Pizza Day’! Binance dish out free pizza for a year
Binance is celebrating the 12th anniversary of ‘Bitcoin Pizza Day’ by giving away free pizza for a year to five lucky winners who share images of their own culinary creations.
May 22 marks the day programmer and Bitcoin miner Laszlo Hanyecz used the fledgling cryptocurrency to buy two pizzas from Papa John’s in 2010. It is recognised as the first physical item ever to be purchased using crypto.
At the time, he transferred around 10,000 BTC – then worth $41 – for a brace of doughy delights. Today, 10,000 Bitcoin would be worth $294 million.
