Bitcoin Pizza

The "Bitcoin Pizza" is famous early Bitcoin transaction. On May 22nd, 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz bought two large pizzas for 10,000 BTC, worth $41 USD. Seven years later, that same quantity of BTC would be worth approximately $200 million USD. The incident exemplifies one of the challenges in designing a new currency suitable both as a medium of exchange and store of value, as such volatility greatly incentivizes adapters to hold vs use a cryptocurrency.
