In May 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made what is believed to be the first real-world transaction using bitcoin. He bought two pizzas for 10,000 BTC.
At the time, Hanyecz believed that bitcoin would eventually be worth more than $1 million per coin. If his prediction comes true, those pizzas would be worth over $10 billion today.
Hanyecz has become known as the “Bitcoin Pizza Guy” and his story is often cited as an example of how early adopters of Bitcoin could have made a fortune if they had just held on to their coins.
So who got the 10,000 BTC for the pizzas? Hanyecz says he paid someone on Bitcointalk forum for the pizzas. The user’s name was jercos and Hanyecz has not been able to find him since.
If jercos still has those 10,000 BTC, he is now a multi-millionaire. Whoever he is, we hope he enjoyed those pizzas!.
