Eating pizza does not seem like any complex business. It is a simple and perhaps one of the most natural things to do. The love for pizza is super primal and innate. Salt, heat, cheese, fat, toppings and acidic base sauce, ohhh i can not help the need.
I like my pizza extra hot, how do you?
In fact, i like my pizza everyday, non stop, keep it rolling. It is one thing to enjoy pizza, it is another to select the best toppings, best crust and to customize the heat levels. But, it is a whole new level if all your tech, emotional and self worth needs are met with the first bite of the pizza. Or even better, just by ordering it.
Who could possibly make pizza better? Well, i don’t think pizza had room for improvements, until i figured that pizza does have a lot more to offer. It can be eaten at a fancy bar, it can be munched at home, it can be delivered, take out is an option, pizza is found at every place where there is convenience, comfort and self love.
We have heard of stuffed crust pizza, s’mores pizza, thin crust pizza, deep pan, new york style, but we bring you the tech styled pizza.
Almost 9 years ago, a user paid for two pizzas using Bitcoin, in what is hailed as the first ever instance that the cryptocurrency was used to pay for goods. The first time something was bought, it had to be pizza, Bitcoin! here is all the validation that you ever needed. We love you!
Hanyecz had initially solicited users in the forum to deliver two pizzas for 10,000 BTC, with a number of users offering to buy the pizzas online for him. Eventually a teenager named Jeremy Sturdivant, nicknamed Jercos, accepted the Bitcoin and sent Hanyecz two pizzas from Papa John’s.
Lucky, lucky Jeremy, you must have an empire now, that is a lot of bitcoins man!!
Today we can buy groceries, go to Las Vegas for chill, go to IKEA, we can party with bitcoins, but that, was a hell of a party! One got to have two amazing i am sure yummy drool worthy pizzas, the other got a 10,000 BTC!! That day is still celebrated in the crypto community as the Bitcoin Pizza Day.
Now we have a little bit of advancement around, people seeking to use BTC to satisfy their appetites for some cheese goodness, there is PizzaForCoins.
Final take on this, Yes, there is such a thing called the Bitcoin Pizza Day. And, for me it is everyday!
