Guy Who Exchanged 10,000 Bitcoins For Two $20 Pizzas In 2010 Regrets

12 years ago, a Floridian programmer named Laszlo Hanyecz was craving pizza. So, he bought two. But the catch here is, that he paid in Bitcoin in the first-ever recorded real-world transaction using crypto.

Hanyecz announced on the forum on May 18, 2010, that he planned to use Bitcoin to buy pizza, preferably two large pies. He was willing to pay 10,000 Bitcoin to anyone who could place an order, collect the cryptocurrency, and bring it to him.

Days passed and Hanyecz was still unable to find anyone who was willing to take up his offer. He was losing hope.

But then, on May 22, Jeremy Sturdivant, a 19-year-old at the time, started turning heads on the forum. He accepted the offer of 10,000 Bitcoin for two pizzas, valued at around $41 back then.

Sturdivant purchased the two pizzas and delivered them to Hanyecz’s place in Florida.

Laszlo Hanyecz posted on the forum that he had received the pizzas and shared the following photograph with his family.

Everyone has that one fvcken mistake, that you don’t like to remember

hio maneno ya bitcoins was just hype and gambling it had no economic sense

What happened to the seller who received the 10k bitcoins?


yeye ndio alitengeneza gpu mining kwa bitcoin
lazima ako na pesa, ni kucheza chini ndio anacheza

Why is he regretting? He got the value for his bitcoin at that time. Probably in 20 years time, 1 BTC will be worth more than a 1 billion Kenya shillings plus. So should we regret when that time comes?
