Eight years ago, on this day, programmer Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 BTC, creating first real-world Bitcoin transaction! At that time, transaction was worth $40. Today, at the time of writing this article, it would be worth more than $85 million.
Crypto-enthusiasts around the world are celebrating the eighth anniversary of the first, documented real-world Bitcoin transaction, and it is just a marker of how far and how quickly the crypto asset space has developed. Since that transaction, digital currencies have become accepted across a wide variety of businesses. Some have increased substantially in value, and digital assets such as cryptocurrencies are now attracting the interest of major institutional investors.
On this special occasion, the Ledger team has assembled an exclusive Ledger Nano S with thematic design twists, which is now available on Etherbit! Go ahead and buy one limited edition Ledger Nano S - Pizza Day!
Pizza day is a reflection of how far our community has come, and how digital assets have moved from niche to mainstream. It is also a reminder that the world of crypto continues to move and that the most exciting and significant work may be ahead of us.
Wishing you a happy pizza day,
