Yesterday, the surging price wasn’t the only reason for a party, we also celebrated Bitcoin Pizza Day. Yesterday, it was exactly 7 years ago that the American software developer Laszlo Hanyecz ordered two pizza’s for a whopping 10.000 bitcoins! Hanyecz posted a message on bitcointalk.org asking if someone could deliver him two large pizza’s in exchange for 10.000 bitcoimost to treat all Satoshi upgrade requests as soon as possible.
It took two days before anyone responded to his message but eventually a user named Jercos was prepared to accept the offer and that led to the first real bitcoin transaction! At that time, the bitcoins had a value of about 25 dollars
