Bitcoin Pizza Day
Laszo Hanyecz's 10,000 BTC pizza buy 10 years ago has a special place in bitcoin folklore, highlighting, however expensively, that participation is necessary for network success.

Ten years ago today someone spent 10,000 bitcoin on about $30 worth of pizza. Today, nations are redrafting crypto regulation and crypto firms report millions in revenues.

CoinDesk has rounded up today's Bitcoin Pizza Day's celebrations from across the world.
