Bitcoin Pizza Day

Do you know what is Bitcoin Pizza Day?

On May 18, 2010 Laszlo Hanyecz went to a Bitcoin forum and asked the community if someone would go and buy him two pizzas in exchange for 10,000 Bitcoins. The US dollar value of 10,000 Bitcoins at that time was about US$25.

Laszlo got himself a deal on May 22 and he is now infamously known as the million dollar pizza guy. And May 22 is now recognised as the Bitcoin Pizza Day!
