While you may not know Laszlo Hanyecz’ name, you might have heard his story: he’s the man who paid 10,000 Bitcoin for two Papa John’s pizzas in 2010.
The transaction was the first recorded instance of exchanging Bitcoin for a physical item (in this case, two cheesy ones), and as Bitcoin’s price skyrocketed in the years following the purchase, even mainstream media became obsessed with the man who bought two pizzas for $500, $5,000…and now today, over $90,000,000.
“Actually, I did order a pizza a couple times. But I generally don’t pay Bitcoin for this, because it’s still difficult. I know there’s people who will broker it, there’s websites, but Papa John’s actually gave me a whole bunch of store credit. I was getting pizza for free for a while. That was kind of cool.“
“People always ask. Yes, I wish I still had 10,000 Bitcoin, but that was a long time ago, and I still was glad to be part of it. I mean, I’m talking to you about it now. Bitcoin is still around. It’s popular. I get to be one of the pioneer guys. That’s worth something.“
