The $80MM Bitcoin Pizza Story

So today I have an interesting story.
This one is pretty CRAZY, and could in affect get more crazy in the future as I'll explain at the end...
The story revolves around a dude by the name of Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida-based programmer.
And it begins on May 18th 2010.

The setting? The BitcoinTalk forums.
These are OG forums for the early adopters of Bitcoin, and there are some legendary discussions from the early days like this one.
At the time, 1 Bitcoin was less than a cent, and Laszlo offered to pay 10,000 bitcoins (around $41 at the time) for a couple of pizzas.

Three days after his offer didn't have any suitors, Laszlo proclaimed:
"So nobody wants to buy me pizza? Is the bitcoin amount I'm offering too low?"
He goes on:
"I just think it would be interesting if I could say that I paid for a pizza in bitcoins"

Well, the next day, his wish was answered as a user by the name of jercos traded two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins.
Here is proof of that transaction by the way. Very cool.
Also check out the value when transacted!
1 Bitcoin was less than a cent.
The real name of jercos?
Jeremy Sturdivant.
He was just 18 years old at the time of the transaction in 2010.
Now, 10,000 Bitcoin is the equivalent of $72MM today!
Or at the time of this interview, $80MM.
When asked if he regretted paying 10,000 Bitcoin for two pizzas, Laszlo emphasised the fact that he got to play a crucial role in the early adoption of Bitcoin and be part of history.
Of course, he also started the tradition of Bitcoin Pizza Day, held on the 22nd May annually to celebrate the first ever use of Bitcoin to buy pizza.

It gets worse though:
After that first pizza purchase in 2010, Laszlo continued to spend his Bitcoin - in fact he told Cooper Anderson that he had spent around 100,000 Bitcoin, much of it on pizza.
Today, that is the equivalent of around $720,000,000!
This story could get even crazier in the coming years.
The next Bitcoin Halving occurs in May 2020, check out the Bitcoin Halving video for more on that.

One of the unique aspects of Bitcoin as an asset is the fact that there is a finite total supply (21 MILLION BITCOIN) and pre-programmed supply SCHEDULE provided by these halving events.
Disclaimer: this is not investment advice and is for entertainment purposes only.
Let's have a look at how much those two pizzas (10,000 Bitcoin) could be worth at different (HYPOTHETICAL) prices for Bitcoin:
IF Bitcoin hit $10,000, THEN that would be $100MM
IF Bitcoin hit $100,000, THEN that would be $1B
IF Bitcoin hit $1,000,000, THEN that would be $10BN
Now of course these are hypothetical price points, but how amazing would it be if those two pizzas ended up being worth billions of dollars?

More than Pizza: 3 Awesome Stories From the History of Bitcoin

Behind every marvelous invention from steam machine to Pizza Hut there are always a bunch of hidden facts and historical gems that everyone needs to know in order to escape the mistakes of the past. Bitcoin is not an exception, and its history dates back to 2009 when the first cryptocurrency was launched after a couple of hopeless attempts to introduce never developed currencies B-Money and Bit Gold. It is of high interest to dive deeper into Bitcoin's history and unravel much more than just the Pizza story: https://blog.coinloan.io/more-than-pizza-3-awesome-stories-from-the-history-of-bitcoin/ What do you think it is that makes Bitcoin G.O.A.T?
3 Great Stories From The History of Bitcoin

Over 1,500 Danish Restaurants Accept BTC For Online Orders

https://myeos.press/over-1500-danish-restaurants-accept-btc-for-online-orders/

Denmark, named one of the happiest places on earth and known for their award-winning cuisine, is also a Bitcoin-friendly nation when it comes to getting the munchies.
Danish website Hungry.dk now accepts payment in Bitcoin for online food orders from over 1,500 restaurants in Denmark. While the restaurants don’t accept Bitcoin on location, hungry Danes can pay with BTC and fulfill their cravings by ordering online and having their food delivered.
There are few places in the world that allow customers to buy food with Bitcoin as it’s not a desired payment method due to its volatile nature. In most cases, people would rather not spend their Bitcoin on food for the fear of missing out if the market goes up.
Take, for instance, the famous Bitcoin pizza story, wherein 2010 a programmer bought two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins (worth $30 at the time). Today, even despite the drastic bear market we’re in, the value of those two pizzas is $38 million.
But while it may not be desirable to spend your Bitcoin on food, it’s nice to know there are companies out there empowering users to spend their Bitcoin like cash, just as it’s intended for.

Paying With BTC

The idea and act of accepting Bitcoin payments aren’t new.
Big name merchants such as Overstock, Microsoft, Gyft, Etsy, Expedia and many more currently accept Bitcoin.
Even Hungry.dk’s acceptance of Bitcoin is not new. Hungry.dk has been accepting Bitcoin as payment since 2014, which is a long time in terms of the cryptocurrency revolution.
However, last year during the parabolic price rise of the cryptocurrency market, Bitcoin’s blocks became full and transactions were utterly slow and very expensive. Some BTC transactions took hours or even days to validate and cost around $30 per transaction.
For this reason, Hungry.dk had suspended their acceptance of Bitcoin for payments… until now.
As shared with Bitcoinist, a representative at Hungry.dk explained their reasons for suspending Bitcoin payments and why they are now accepting BTC again:
We have accepted Bitcoins as a payment method for quite some time. We decided to remove the feature temporarily last year though because the average transaction time took too long, and the experience wasn’t the best. The problems have since been solved, and we have added the option again… Hungry.dk handle the payment, so you will always be able to use Bitcoins with all the restaurants currently found on Hungry.dk.

The Future of Payments with Bitcoin

Bitcoin’s problems that led to Hungry.dk suspending its use have since subsided, but what if the cryptocurrency market goes parabolic again?
Well, there has already been various improvements not in place during the height of Bitcoin in 2017.
For one, SegWit vastly increases the speed and decreases fees of transactions. Another development showing substantial signs of growth and adoption is the Lightning Network.
The Lightning Network has seen a surge in usage and capacity, and recently surpassed $2 million in capacity. The network is still in its very early stages but development is at an all-time high and continues to grow.
If Bitcoin’s Lightning Network turns out to be a success, we might see BTC being adopted across many more merchants. We have yet to see the giant merchants of Apple and Amazon accept Bitcoin, but perhaps they will if Lightning Network proves capable.

Is the Irish media irresponsible when it comes to cryptocurrency coverage?

The media covers the booms, the busts, and the celebrity/expert opinions. But whether the news is positive or negative, it is feeding the hysterics behind the crypto market, and therefore seems to be a tacit endorsement of cryptocurrency trading.
For example, you'll see many articles invoking the original whitepaper behind bitcoin, the noble ideal of decentralised currency, and countless iterations of the bitcoin pizza story. However, you'll rarely (if ever) see an article saying that cryptocurrency is only worth what a gobshite is willing to pay for it, that crypto mining is literally pissing energy away for some neckbeard's invisible gambling tokens, that traditional banks already do what 99% of us will ever need from crypto anyway etc.
Again, I don't feel that mere reporting on Warren Buffett saying "crypto is a scam" is a true indictment of crypto, or that reporting the latest hack claiming millions of dollars worth of crypto is a true indictment either, since these are mingled so tightly with the rest of the hype articles the very same rag will put out a couple of days later.
So: Do you think the Irish media irresponsible when it comes to cryptocurrency coverage?
