Exactly 10 years ago, on May 22, 2010, a user under the nickname Laszlo bought 2 pizzas for 10 thousand BTC. This event sparked a lot of discussion and jokes in the crypto communities, and the pizza itself became the most expensive in the world. How the price of bitcoin has changed since that time and what can be bought today for 10 thousand BTC, BeInCrypto figured out.
Could be a millionaire
Late in the evening, a Florida resident was sitting at a computer and decided to conduct a small experiment. He posted an advertisement on social networks that he is ready to donate 10 thousand BTC to those who deliver pizza to his home. He had no particular preferences for food. Laszlo just added that he didn’t want to see fish in pizza. Some time later, one of the local pizzerias responded to his message and delivered 2 pizzas for 10,000 BTC. Translated into dollars, this amount did not exceed $ 40. But the very fact of the bitcoin transaction went down in the history of the crypto sector and was called Pizza-Day.
By the middle of the year, the cost of military-technical cooperation increased sharply, and 10,000 military-technical cooperation was already worth $ 600. Laszlo himself wrote that he did not expect such a rise in value and will now be careful about his spending. By the end of 2010, the coin had risen to $ 2,600.
Over the next 8 years, the value of bitcoin reached the $ 20 thousand mark.At this time, a whole class of new crypto-millionaires appeared in society, who purchased their bitcoins at a price not higher than $ 50.
In 2019, the value of bitcoin dropped to $ 7,000 and then dropped below $ 6,000. Bitcoin is currently trading at around $ 10,000.
If we talk about what you can buy today for 10,000 BTC, then this list can include:
– 19 million pizzas. Enough to feed several countries in the world;
– about 10 elite apartments in Moscow;
– several houses in California;
– more than a hundred cars from Ferrari;
– private plane;
– about 10 yachts;
– 316 space flights from Virgin.
