Laszlo Hanyecz is a bitcoin miner who became well known for buying two pizzas with a home delivery for… 10,000 bitcoins in 2010. And he went down in history as the first person to pay for a real product using cryptocurrency. However, at that time, at the dawn of the crypto world development, such an impressive number of coins was equivalent to only a few dollars, which cannot be compared with the current exchange rate.
Journalists later found out that Laszlo Hanyecz sold the rest of his bitcoins at the rate of 1 USD and earned about 4 thousand, which was enough to upgrade the computer and buy several video cards.
This Bitcoin transaction is celebrated every year on May 22nd.
