It has been eleven years since the whole cryptocurrency world celebrates Bitcoin Pizza Day including this year. But do you really know what and why we have been celebrating for?

On May 22, 2010, a computer programmer and also one of the excellent Bitcoin network contributors, Laszlo Hanyecz, paid 10,000 BTC to a fellow Bitcoin Talk forum user for two Papa John’s pizzas. By then, the Bitcoin network was barely one year old and 10,000 Bitcoin valued 30 US dollars just enough for a couple of pizzas while those Bitcoin are worth around 98 million US dollars by today’s exchange rate.

People seem to celebrate more for the Bitcoin price and the world’s most expensive pizzas bought for 10,000 Bitcoin. However, this Bitcoin transaction was the first and remarkable cryptocurrency transaction for a consumer product which made it more worthy to be celebrated.

“It wasn’t like Bitcoins had any value back then, so the idea of trading them for a pizza was incredibly cool,” Laszlo Hanyecz told some media in public. As one of the first-class Bitcoin network contributors, he had been working on Bitcoin network for a while and his contributions include building and deploying the first macOS Bitcoin Core release. Because of his great contributions, he got Bitcoin payment. Holding bitcoin, he was thinking there was no one spent Bitcoin before so he decided to take this big move.

To celebrate this historic first Bitcoin transaction, Cocos-BCX is going to launch two airdrops for you.
