2x Boxes 0f Pizza
This is the story of the programmer, who on May 22, 2010, paid 10,000 BTC (worth $ 25 back then) for just two boxes of pizza.
Today this amount in BTC is worth over $ 7 million. And if he had kept the bitcoin until the boom on the crypto market in December 2017, he could have somewhere around $ 70 million.
The first block was added to Bitcoin in early January 2009. January 12, 2009, the same year, the first BTC deal was held. This happened at the 170th block and took place between the late Hal Fini (one of the leading developers of the project) and Satoshi Nakamoto (the mysterious Creator of Bitcoin). The deal included Nakamoto, who sent 10 BTC to Finney.
The mysterious transaction worth $ 149 million
Transaction of 194,993 BTC took place in the autumn of 2013, making it the largest deal to date. At that time, the transaction value was over $ 149 million dollars after 1 BTC was around $ 729.
