CoinDCX exchange is running a new trading giveaway on Bitcoin Pizza Day, May 22. But before that, a little history lesson
What is Bitcoin Pizza Day
On May 22, 2010, when Bitcoin value was merely in cents, a programmer named Laszlo Hanyecz offered 10,000 Bitcoins – about $40 at that time – for two Papa John’s pizzas (in the picture above)
In the original thread, he said
I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day. I like having left over pizza to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I’m aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don’t have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a ‘breakfast platter’ at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you’re happy!If you’re interested please let me know and we can work out a deal
Someone from UK ordered him the pizza from Papa Jones. The Pizza cost about $25 at the time.
While this day triggered a chain of events that would bring us to today with over 1500 cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin still sitting in the top at $7900.
On Bitcoin Pizza Day, CoinDCX has announced a giveaway of Rs. 500/- worth of Dominos Pizza Gift Vouchers.
CoinDCX will randomly pick 10 winners from the list of traders that complete atleast 0.02 BTC worth of trading on CoinDCX.
The offer is valid between 4 PM and 7 PM today.
