The Brief History Lesson

It was May 18, 2010 12:35:20 am and Laszlo sent the following message:

Pizza for Bitcoins

I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day. I like having pizza to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it over to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I'm aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don't have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a 'breakfast platter' at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you're happy.

I like things like onions, peppers, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni, etc.. just standard stuff no weird fish topping or anything like that. I also like regular cheese pizzas which may be cheaper to prepare or otherwise.

If you are interested please let me know and we can work out a deal.




It is interesting to note that the message was read 327851 times. Thats a lot of pizza lovers.

Fast Forward To The Future


LocalCryptos tweeted that

Today is #BitcoinPizzaDay!  🍕🍕🍕

 10 years ago today, the first ever real-world #Bitcoin transaction was made to buy two pizzas.

For your convenience, today LocalCryptos is displaying the pizza exchange rate on every Bitcoin offer.


Note:  2010 was pre UberEats, hence the 4 day delay from Lazio's message to the pizza being delivered and paid for.

So How Did You Celebrate #BitcoinPizzaDay?

I am a sun sea and sand person, makes chocolate, grows organic vegetables, rides a Vespa and collects crypto.


Bought our 1st pieces of BTC, July 2017. The process was daunting and confusing. Could easily given up & put it in the too hard basket or have fallen victim to one of the many scams or pitfalls. Grateful to a friend of my son's, who had been in this space for awhile, giving me some good advice & steering me in the right direction. That experience has helped shape my desire to share what I learn. Also always had a morbid fascination with Snake Oil Salesman & their sales pitch; Bitconnect, USI Tech..
