The World’s Most Expensive Pizza Bitcoin

On January 11, 2009, a transfer of 10 Bitcoins took place between Hal Finney and Satoshi Nakamoto. This event was
passed as Bitcoin When Came Out
 and Bitcoin transfer. On May 20, 2010, a message was left on the bitcointalk.org website by Laszlo Hanyecz. The message said he could pay with 10,000 Bitcoins for 2 oversized pizzas. 2 days after his message, a return to Hanyecz was made by the user “Jercos”. This exchange, which took place on May 22, 2010, went down in history as the first exchange made with Bitcoin.
 
Today, May 22 is celebrated as “Bitcoin Pizza Day” and this first exchange continues to be remembered as one of the cornerstones of an innovation that will change the financial system all over the world. Considering that at the time of this writing, the equivalent of 10,000 Bitcoins is about $175,000,000 ($175 million), the amount paid may sound like a craze. However, Laszlo Hanyecz told the media in many interviews that he did not regret it.
 
Since the first exchange with Bitcoin, all crypto coins, especially Bitcoin, have come a long way in terms of awareness and reliability. It is possible to see this distance from May 22 in the value of Bitcoin. Bitcoin, which was priced at $ 0.5 in August 2010, reached a value of $ 1 on February 9, 2011, reaching a value equal to the dollar. Then, in December 2017, 1 Bitcoin reached its historical peak by reaching $ 20,000. Today, 1 Bitcoin is over $ 18,000. This change in Bitcoin’s price since 2010 tells us how much its place in the financial world has grown.
 
In the world of the future, we see that the growing cryptocurrencies led by Bitcoin will exist at the center of the financial ecosystem in the world. We can easily say that all the world’s central banks see this future. Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) studies conducted by central banks on blockchain technology are the clearest proof of this.
 
From the first transfer with Bitcoin to the first exchange, and today we have witnessed a process in which the whole world is working on its technology. Let’s see how the future time will change us.
