Crypto News: PizzaDAO Celebrating Bitcoin Pizza Day With 100 Parties Worldwide

Pizza DAO, the decentralized blockchain project that aims to bring together the global community of pizza lovers with the technological possibilities of Web3. Is celebrating Bitcoin Pizza Day in style on Sunday.

iexclusivenews reports that on Sunday, commemorative activities will be held in 100 pizzerias in over 75 countries.

Including the United States, Argentina, South Korea, Ethiopia, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, among others.

This online news outlet understands that the events will draw a variety of supporters. Including 13-time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani, Seth Green, Steve Aoki, the Dogecoin team. And comedians Cheech and Chong, among others, in addition to a nonfungible token (NFT) drop and charitable drive.

What People Are Saying 

iexclusivenews Nigeria reports that since the 2017 bull market resurrected and glorified the tale of hardship from the blockchain archives.

Bitcoin Pizza Day has become a permanent fixture and cultural highlight in the crypto calendar.

Laszlo Hanyecz posted a 153-word comment on the Bitcoin Talk message board on May 22, 2010.

Asking for someone to either home cook and bring two large pizzas, or simply pick up two large pizzas from a nearby takeout, stating:

“I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day […] If you’re interested please let me know and we can work out a deal.”

The Jacksonville, Florida native was very particular about his topping requirements, writing:

“I like things like onions, peppers, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni, etc., just standard stuff no weird fish topping or anything like that.I also like regular cheese pizzas which may be cheaper to prepare or otherwise acquire.”

User ender_x tried to persuade Hanyecz that his money could be better spent elsewhere, stating:

“10,000… That’s quite a bit.. you could sell those on https://www.bitcoinmarket.com/ for $41USD right now..”

But Hanyecz was persistent in his endeavor and finally — seven hours later — successfully traded 10,000 Bitcoin (BTC) for the pizzas. A “great milestone reached” one user replied.

That pizza purchase is worth $298 million at the time of writing, almost twelve years later.

Apart from its entertainment and comedic value, Hanyecz’s story exemplifies the parabolic growth of Bitcoin and the entire sector over the past decade.

For many market participants, it represents the need for humility and appreciation, as well as conviction in early adoption.
