Pizza day | Important step for bitcoin by Laszlo Hanyecz

By shadowofsatoshi | shadowofsatoshi | 22 May 2019

Todey its exactly nine years from the historical moment of bitcoin, when a programmer Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for a total of 10,000 bitcoins.

Fool! Madman! He could be a billionaire nowadays!!!!

Yes, at the ATH of bitcoin price of $ 20,000, the value of 10,000 bitcoins was somewhere over $ 200 billion.

However, when thinking about the mental health of Laszlo, we forget those very important facts:

1. Laszlo probably mined more than 10,000 bitcoins.

2. If there were no other or other transactions in which this bitcoin was exchanged for something "tangible", not made up of ones and zeros, it would never have become such a phenomenon, and perhaps would have been forgotten.

To whom do you say something like Digital cash, Bit gold, Hashcash, E-gold or B-money? If someone bought 2 Pizzas for Digital Cash, they might not even need to create bitcoin! Keep on mind this fact when thinking of Laszlo.

So, happy birthday Pizza Day, and let crypto be used more and more to pay for anything. Even more pizzas!
