Bitcoin Pizza Day: Changpeng Zhao “got a job” in a pizzeria, and PizzaDAO held 100 parties


Every year on May 22, the cryptocurrency community celebrates Bitcoin Pizza Day. The reason for the celebration was a landmark event for the industry, when in 2010 programmer Laszlo Heinitz purchased two Papa John’s pizzas for 10,000 BTC.

At the time of writing, they are worth more than $294 million. Now, for this money, you can buy Pablo Picasso’s Young Girl with a Flower Basket twice ($115 million) or six original copies US Constitution ($43.2 million).

PizzaDAO decided to host 100 parties in 75 countries, including the US, Argentina, South Korea, the UK and Japan. The decentralized autonomous organization also released a Rare Pizza NFT collection celebrating the big day.

On the eve of the holiday, the Binance cryptocurrency exchange held a themed event in Cannes. The head of the company, Changpeng Zhao, took part in the celebration – he personally prepared pizza for visitors to the Mister Pizza establishment.

Binance has also launched a contest to give five users a “year supply of free pizza” ($2,000 in BNB). Winners will be chosen on May 29th.

The KuCoin exchange is hosting a contest for $500 in USDT. Users were asked to describe their first purchase using cryptocurrencies.

The Huobi platform announced that it will distribute 1 BTC among 100 winners who buy pizza with Dogecoin (DOGE).

Recall that in May 2022, Laszlo Heinnitz said that he actually spent much more than 10,000 BTC on pizza.
