Thursday marked the four year anniversary of the initial Bitcoin Pizza Day. You can read about it here at our article which was featured by Business Insider and Tech Crunch.

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.

My colleagues Caleb Chen and Drew Cordell also enjoyed their Bitcoin Pizza Day.
