8 years ago a programmer paid 10,000 bitcoin for 2 Papa John's pizzas now it's the most celebrated day in crypto

In 2010, a programmer traded 10,000 bitcoin (http://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/btc-usd) for two Papa John's pizzas.
Today, those bitcoin would be worth more than $80 million.
In honor of that purchase, the crypto world celebrates Bitcoin Pizza Day on May 22.

Laszlo Hanyecz, a programmer, purchased the two pizzas from a fellow bitcoiner in Jacksonville Florida, according to the New York Times. In 2013, Hanyecz didn't sound too broken up about the deal in an interview with the Times (https://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/12/22/disruptions-betting-on-bitcoin/).

"It wasn't like bitcoins had any value back then, so the idea of trading them for a pizza was incredibly cool,"Hanyecz said.
