Laszlo and the Bitcoin pizzas

On May 18, 2010 another message appeared in the online forum bitcointalk.org, which was supposed to make similarly high waves:

I pay 10,000 bitcoins for a few pizzas. Maybe two big ones, that I still have something left the next day. I like pizzas to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it home to me or order it from a delivery service. What I want is to get food delivered in exchange for Bitcoins without having to prepare it myself. Like a breakfast plate in a hotel or something – they just bring you something to eat and you’re happy! I like onions, peppers, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, salami etc.. But only the standard stuff, nothing funny with fish or anything. I also like very simple cheese pizzas, which may be cheaper to prepare or get. If someone is interested, let me know and we can negotiate a deal. Thank you, Laszlo.

Excerpt from the Bitcoin news at the end

After four days Laszlo announced that he got pizza for his 10.000 Bitcoins. What he didn’t know was Bitcoin news that the 10,000 Bitcoins would already be worth over 2,000 euros in November of the same year, almost 40,000 euros two years later and over 160 million euros in December 2017. However, by introducing Bitcoin news into the goods cycle, he has done important pioneering work. This was the only way the digital coins could get a countervalue.

The party continues
Much has happened at Bitcoin since Satoshi published his white paper and Laszlo pioneered Bitcoin as a barter object. The economic climax of Bitcoin’s history probably came in December last year: the often quoted bubble swelled so much that more speculation than utility was involved – simply too much air had been pumped into Bitcoin. But also the current events around Mt.Gox, Dread Pirate Roberts and the mysterious Wallet 1933p show: With its tender ten years the good Bitcoin must still grow properly.

Bitcoin formula: Unknown

Who wrote this Bitcoin formula has not yet been clarified. Again and again curious people tried to find the person or group of people behind the Bitcoin formula pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Initially, he worked with an open source team. He attached great importance to not divulging any personal data.

In 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto released the first Bitcoin client and communicated with the Bitcoin community until the end of 2010. He then disappeared from the scene without a trace. Analysis methods of the white paper from criminalistics, research on forums or inquiries in his sphere of influence ultimately did not lead to exact results.

Nevertheless we wish: Happy financial crisis and Happy Bitcoin Birthday!
