The pizza delivery man will cash out the tips in bitcoin, lying since 2013


The delivery service driver, who had kept a tip in the first cryptocurrency since 2013, decided to exchange the coins for dollars. This was reported by a Reddit user.

7 years ago, I gave a pizza guy a $ 5 tip in BTC (.05 BTC at the time). That $ 5 tip is now worth over $ 2850. Today, I received this. from CryptoCurrency

According to the first publication, on December 28, 2013, the customer offered the pizza delivery man a tip between $ 5 in cash and 0.0069 BTC (~ $ 5 at the exchange rate at the time) in a paper wallet.

Just gave the pizza guy a paper wallet as a tip (0.0069BTC ~ $ 5) with instructions and email address if he needs help – went better than expected! from Bitcoin

He chose the second option and received the public and private keys along with instructions and the user’s Reddit mail. Seven years later, the delivery man contacted btcbible to help exchange bitcoins for US dollars.

The story refers to a landmark event for the cryptocurrency industry. In 2010, programmer Laszlo Heinitz purchased two pizzas for 10,000 BTC, which at the time of writing are worth about $ 480 million.

Since then, the community has celebrated Bitcoin Pizza Day every year on May 22.

Recall that in 2018 Laszlo Heinitz repeated the experiment using the Lightning Network protocol, ordering two pizzas for 0.0069 BTC.
