This legendary post made by Laszlo Hanyecz on May 17, 2010 is widely regarded as a seminal moment in the history of ₿itcoin. What is so special about this, you say? Well, a few days later on May 22, 2010, a Bitcointalk user going by the handle Jercos took Laszlo up on his offer, and the first documented exchange of this natively digital "magic internet money" for a real world good was done. At the time, ₿itcoin was valued at around $0.003, so the offer was quite a good one for anyone willing to make it even then, as they would have received around $41 in BTC in exchange for two large pizzas. Today however, ₿itcoin "Pizza Day" is celebrated as a way of marking the tremendous growth of the network--both in utility and value--as ₿TC is used globally for trade every day, and that $41 worth of sats is now valued at over $500,000,000 as of this writing.
