The first Bitcoin Pizza Day will be celebrated for the 12th time on May 22, 2022. The first Bitcoin trade took place on this day. By purchasing two pizzas for 10,000 BTC, Laszlo Hanyecz created history.

On this day in 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida citizen, offered $10,000 BTC in return for two huge pizzas. The transaction is well-known in the crypto community as the first documented trade of Bitcoin for actual goods.

Hanyecz rose to prominence as a pioneer of bitcoin transactions, but it's likely that he now regrets his decision. The two pizzas are currently valued at $395 million, making them the most expensive pizzas ever made.

Pizza Day of Bitcoin in 2022
Returning to the present, the well-known bitcoin pizza transaction has left its mark on the cryptocurrency industry. To commemorate the transaction, several exchanges run different discounts on the anniversary day (May 22). A beautiful residence and a variety of luxury goods can be purchased with the same transaction today.

Anothony Pompliano, a Bitcoin fan and promoter, started a seven-day pizza campaign to commemorate Bitcoin's eleventh anniversary last year. 10,000 pizzas were available for purchase across ten cities as part of the campaign. Every pizza sold went to the Human Rights Foundation's Bitcoin Development Fund.

The trip may have begun with pizza, but it has since evolved to include a variety of things that may be purchased using Bitcoins. Cryptocurrency can now be used to purchase anything from a pizza or a Subway sandwich to high-end clothing and watches, utilities, space travel, even automobiles and real estate. Crypto enthusiasts can also use bitcoin to donate to their favorite charity and complete their daily good acts.
