What Exactly Is Bitcoin Pizza Day?

Bitcoin Pizza Day is celebrated on May 22 to commemorate the first real-world commercial BTC transaction. In 2010, a programmer named Laszlo Hanyecz famously purchased two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins from another user on the Bitcointalk forum. To this day, the Bitcoin community still celebrates the cryptocurrency’s first real-life purchase.

At Binance, we like to mark the occasion in our own special way. From trading promotions in 2020 to CZ slinging slices in 2022, we’ve gone from strength to strength. You’ll soon see that 2023 will be our biggest celebration yet, with more events to join than ever.
