Today is May 22nd, which means it's Pizza Day for the Bitcoin/Crypto community!

On May 22nd 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz bought two Pizzas for 10,000 BTC, which was worth around €33.00 back in 2010. This payment now acts as a milestone for the digital currency, and is acknowledge to be one of the first purchases of a product with Bitcoin.

What is Bitcoin? - A bitFlyer Academy Guide for Beginners
Launched in 2009, Bitcoin is the world’s first cryptocurrency, also known as “Digital Gold”. Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous founder, introduced Bitcoin as ‘Open Source Peer-2-Peer Money’ for secured, verifiable digital transactions without involving intermediaries like banks.

As of today, and for the 11th birthday of Pizza Day, 1 Bitcoin is worth around €30,000, which means Laszlo bought two Papa John's Pizzas, for €300 Millions if it happened today. Just wow.
