Everyday seems to be National Something Day, so the fact that such a thing as Bitcoin Pizza Day exists isn’t such a surprise. Bitcoin Pizza day is today, May 22, and marks the anniversary of the first Bitcoin transaction. At the time, two Papa John’s pizzas went for 10,000 BTC.
The folks at CryptocurrencyNews.com pickup the story from there:
Since that fateful day, Bitcoin’s price has skyrocketed and many other cryptocurrencies have sprung forth from Bitcoin’s success.
Back in the day, 10,000 BTC may have only gotten you two pizzas. But what can that much Bitcoin get you now?
Although Bitcoin is currently down for the day by 1.94%, at $8,260.43 for one BTC, that still puts the price of 10,000 BTC at a whopping $82,604,300.
$82 million is a lot of money. How much exactly? Let’s put that a little more into perspective by seeing what you can buy for $82 million.
