It’s a big week for bitcoin — and for pizza.
Monday marked Bitcoin Pizza Day — the date seven years ago when Laszlo Hanyecz completed the first ever purchase with bitcoin. Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoin, a quantity of the cryptocurrency that is now worth more than $21 million.
Bitcoin aficionados use that milestone every year to track the growth of the cryptocurrency.
