Today, May 22nd, is Bitcoin Pizza Day. What does that mean, you may ask? Well, back in 2010, one of the earliest Bitcoin (BTC) purchases was completed. The purchase was for two Papa John’s pizzas. The price back then? 10,000 BTC.
Since that fateful day, Bitcoin’s price has skyrocketed and many other cryptocurrencies have sprung forth from Bitcoin’s success.
Back in the day, 10,000 BTC may have only gotten you two pizzas. But what can that much Bitcoin get you now?
Bitcoin (BTC) Price
Although Bitcoin is currently down for the day by 1.94%, at $8,260.43 for one BTC, that still puts the price of 10,000 BTC at a whopping $82,604,300.
$82 million is a lot of money. How much exactly? Let’s put that a little more into perspective by seeing what you can buy for $82 million.
Bitcoin Pizza Day: You Can Buy…
We’ll start things off where they began – with pizza. One large pepperoni pizza from Papa John’s costs $19.74 today. For $82,604,300, you’d be able to buy 4,184,614 large pepperoni pizzas from Papa John’s today. That’s a lot of pizza! Hope you like pepperoni.
With $82,604,300*, you can also buy:
78,223 plane tickets from Vancouver, Canada to Tokyo, Japan.
706,019 one-day passes to Disneyland in California.
121,234 ETH at the current price ($681.36).
3,304,172 bottles of wine (assuming an average price of about $25).
82,686 12.9-inch iPad Pros with 128 GB of storage.
And so, so much more.
Now, the question is, how many of these things would actually accept Bitcoin as payment? That’s a whole other issue. But for right now, let’s just revel in the amount.
So, happy Bitcoin Pizza Day everyone. I hope it’s extra cheesy.
