Bitcoin Pizza day is celebrated to acknowledge the first payment ever made in Bitcoin. The advent of Bitcoin has paved the way for seamless cross-border payments. The demand for a third party intervention in financial transactions has become almost redundant as the crypto space poses an ecosystem of financial liberty. However, while we bask in the advantages of this unconventional financial innovation, we often disregard the origin of crypto transactions.

It all began when Laszlo Hanyecz bought two boxes of pizza on May 22, 2010, using 10,000 BTC. This was the first time anyone was reported to have exchanged Bitcoin for physical goods and we can trace the origin of crypto transactions and the famous “Bitcoin Pizza Day” to Laszlo’s purchase.

This first Bitcoin payment made over a decade ago has accelerated the blockchain industry leading to the establishment of several decentralised exchanges across the globe.

The event, Bitcoin Pizza Day is appropriately named. The event is notable in the crypto space as it commemorates early crypto adoption. 

As a community, the Crypto Bootcamp, in collaboration with Crypto Ladies League and other partners is hosting an event in this regard, in 20 cities across Nigeria, Kenya and other countries in Africa, to commemorate the first payment made with Bitcoin, and how it spearheaded several innovations from which altcoins and digital payments solutions stemmed. 

About Bitcoin Pizza Day Hangout…Who Started It?

Bitcoin Pizza Day Hangout was initiated in 2021 by Obinna Iwuno, Founder of Crypto Bootcamp Community and the Executive Secretary of SiBAN, to commemorate the first Crypto Adoption event on record in history, which was the first time Bitcoin was used in exchange for physical goods. 

This event in his opinion should be held every year, to advocate for crypto adoption within and beyond the borders of Africa. The event will connect Blockchain and Crypto Communities, brands and users while unveiling and promoting innovations and tech development in various ecosystems. 

The Continent-wide Bitcoin Pizza Day Event seeks to highlight the significance of the first BTC transaction, how far it has brought the industry, and what the future holds for this financial innovation.
