May 22 is a big day in Bitcoin history. In 2010, Florida programmer and BitcoinTalk user Laszlo Hanyecz offered to pay 10,000 Bitcoins for pizza. This transaction is famously known throughout the cryptocommunity as the first real world transaction/purchase used with Bitcoin. It is now known as Bitcoin Pizza Day.
So I decided to celebrate. I went to CoinMap.org to find any pizzerias accepting Bitcoin in my area. I found one, PJ’s Pizza, that only accepted Bitcoin through their site host, Menufy. I ordered, picked it up, and it was delicious.
