In recent news, according to Bloomberg's online article, a new day for celebration has been created for cryptocurrency fanatics, what's new America? May 22nd is now the official day to celebrate an astounding day in history where bitcoins when first introduced, only worth pennies, was used to buy pizza exactly 8 years ago from May 22, 2018! Guess the amount? -10,000 bitcoins! If we were to compare that amount to how much bitcoins are worth now, we would be looking at a staggering $8,200 for each bitcoin x 10,000! That would be $82 MILLION dollars worth of bitcoins that was used exactly 8 years ago for only 2 pizzas! Yes folks, 10,000 bitcoins were used to buy only two lovely pizzas from Papa John's! Maybe just for future reference, this is just a great reminder not to use those bitcoins just yet. Let them be just a collector's item, allow time to grow its value, and achieve being a millionaire by this time, of course in cryptocurrency exchanges. Imagine how that person, Laszlo Hanyecz to be exact, felt having used the 10,000 bitcoins. Hanyecz is actually the reason for celebrating how that one particular day, 8 years ago, May 22, 2010, he gave up 10,000 bitcoins for just two pizzas. Hats off to you Hanyecz, looking back, that was a bold move.
