It was the day of 22nd May 2010, a man named Laszlo Hanyecz purchased 2 pizzas for the first time with 10000 bitcoins. The day celebrated with the name bitcoin pizza day since 2010. He was a programmer and he made the first-ever purchase of Papa John’s with 10000 bitcoins.

However, he didn’t know that when he spent 10,000 bitcoins on two Papa John’s pies, it also earned him a place in the Cryptocurrency Hall of Fame.

Little did he know that, 11 years later, a coin that was worth around £30 at the time is now worth over £306 million.

However, his life changed completely when he posted on the Bitcoin chat forum on May 22, 2010.

In Bitcointalk, he wrote:

 “I’ll spend 10,000 bitcoins for a few Pizzas. It can be two large ones so I have some leftovers for the next day. I love onions, peppers, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni, etc. Just the standard stuff, no weird fish fillings or anything like that.”

Fortune was able to buy him a private island, a mansion, and several private jets.

Surprisingly, Laszlo claims he had no sleepless nights during his lunchtime impulse purchases in 2010.

“I do not regret it. I think it’s great to be a part of the early history of Bitcoin in this way.

“People know about pizza. Everyone can understand that, [like] ‘Oh my God, you spent all your money!’

The Florida resident was an early contributor to Bitcoin Software less than a year ago.

He even wrote a program that allows fans to mine the currency using their computer’s graphics card (GPU).
