Hi all, I'm a new Bitcoin user and I'm starting to generate some of my own coins.  I have a few friends who are also using it now.

I am a programmer by trade and have a fair amount of experience with different platforms like linux, Mac OS, iPhone, etc.

I am interested in running Bitcoin on other platforms like iPhone and I'm wondering if there is any interest in this or if anyone has a problem with this.  I'm also wondering if someone has already done this so I don't waste my time.  Thanks!

My Bitcoin address is 1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

Imagine in the future if btc would hit 100.000$, people are gonna start teaming up to hunt these lost address down and try to access them.

Actually, why haven't they already started?

I spent it all on pizza long ago:  https://blockchain.info/address/1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

3-4 years ago there were less than 100 people frequenting this forum, and I was pretty happy to trade 10,000 coins for pizza.  I mean people can say I'm stupid, but it was a great deal at the time.  I don't think anyone could have known it would take off like this. Smiley

At the time, Gavin had a bitcoin 'faucet' that gave out bitcoins for free, and a few people were trading them for less than a cent each, but nothing serious.  You can probably find all the old posts on this forum still.  I was learning OpenCL programming and mining bitcoins with a video card so the pizza was a good deal for me.  I couldn't have known that my pizza trade would end up being such a big deal, or that so many others would become interested in bitcoin and thus drive the value up.  The people I traded with didn't know it was going to explode either, they just took a risk - spending their 'real' money to buy some guy pizza in exchange for some internet Monopoly money.

Haha. I thought that's why you had bumped it.

Do you know what the guy you bought the pizza did with the coins? Haven't you had a load of messages or media requests? Why did you choose to stop by now after all this time?

Haha there are so many old posts to dig that are interesting, I often read them

You have found a good one + an update of the OP; @ laszlo : can you tell us more about how you lived the Bitcoin revolution? Did you quit your studies or your job to go have margarita.s on an island?

I heard from one person who bought a house with their pizza bitcoins, indirectly, by trading it for cash first.  Apparently it was a lot of hassle with the bank due to AML and just their general distaste for currencies they don't control.  I wish I could say I did the same, but the pizza didn't appreciate the same way as the bitcoins Smiley

If I was you I'd sell or make my own Pizza and try sell
I'd definitely eat at Laszlo's (though he should think about lowering the price…) Wink

I think any bank would become suspicious if you just suddenly dumped hundreds of thousands in there. I hope the Pizza tasted good. Was it just delivered from a Pizza Hut or something?

It was two boxes of Papa John's. There's a pic floating about on the Internet somewhere but I'm too lazy to search for it right now and you might find it in the original BTC10k pizza thread.

Pics are still in the same location for anyone interested.  I didn't trade bitcoins for the child - she's my daughter, Amy.  Only the pizza was traded.

I spent it all on pizza long ago:  https://blockchain.info/address/1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

3-4 years ago there were less than 100 people frequenting this forum, and I was pretty happy to trade 10,000 coins for pizza.  I mean people can say I'm stupid, but it was a great deal at the time.  I don't think anyone could have known it would take off like this. Smiley

You know you could actually sell pizzas based on your story. People sold burgers with less credentials than you based on their story..

Definitely not stupid. Part of a history and you could not have predicted that its going to gain such a value. Besides that such an amount would spoil you :-)
What is hilarious you just asked 4 years ago to get some BTC and someone throw at you 10 BTC :-) Now people would be killing for less

At the time, Gavin had a bitcoin 'faucet' that gave out bitcoins for free, and a few people were trading them for less than a cent each, but nothing serious.  You can probably find all the old posts on this forum still.  I was learning OpenCL programming and mining bitcoins with a video card so the pizza was a good deal for me.  I couldn't have known that my pizza trade would end up being such a big deal, or that so many others would become interested in bitcoin and thus drive the value up.  The people I traded with didn't know it was going to explode either, they just took a risk - spending their 'real' money to buy some guy pizza in exchange for some internet Monopoly money.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

The pizza thing was a lot more popular than I thought so I made good on as many trades as I could.  Other than a little bit of single digit change, I spent everything I mined.  As you all know, the difficulty rises to adjust to hashing power, so eventually the mining wasn't worth it for me.

GPU mining BTC in 2010!??

As far as I know I was the first to release a GPU miner.  I contributed the hash meter back then too, that's what the screen shot was all about.  I used to maintain the Mac OS builds but others have taken that up now.  It was a fun project and I learned all about OpenCL.  I can't find the thread on the forum anymore but you can find it in my web dir ( http://eclipse.heliacal.net/~solar/bitcoin/sha256.cl ).  That was back in May 2010.  Maybe there were other people who were doing it in private too, though.  For a long time I had been looking for a reason to learn how to write a shader, and this was a great project for it.  The way I looked at it, I was helping out with an open source project, and I was making pizza with my code.

You guys will laugh now but I mined everything with an nvidia 9800 GTX+ on Mac OS (hackintosh, another scene I used to help out in).  I ended up getting 2 AMD Radeon 5970s with the bitcoins I was mining, but at the time, the OpenCL libraries from AMD and nvidia both were really buggy and I never got it to work right on more than one GPU.  The same code that would work on the nvidia on linux wouldn't work on windows and vice versa.  I was trying to make a generic OpenCL miner that everyone could run on all 3 platforms, and I spent months tweaking different kernels for each GPU, but I was also working two jobs at the time and so I never finished it.  I ended up just leaving bitcoin on the back burner for a few years, then it exploded and people started asking me about the pizza trades.  Every time the value goes up on exchanges, people email me asking me to comment on it, but really there isn't much more to tell than what I explained here.

This is the old GPU mining release I made for Mac OS, probably won't work anymore though: http://eclipse.heliacal.net/~solar/bitcoin/Bitcoin-MacOSX-Intel-svn-75-opencl-2010-05-10.dmg

Your story was one of the first ones i head about when getting into BTC. As in you can buy pizza with this internet money.
Sucks to hear that you didn't leave few thousand BTC on some floppy somewhere.

You guys will laugh now but I mined everything with an nvidia 9800 GTX+ on Mac OS (hackintosh, another scene I used to help out in).  I ended up getting 2 AMD Radeon 5970s with the bitcoins I was mining, but at the time, the OpenCL libraries from AMD and nvidia both were really buggy and I never got it to work right on more than one GPU.  The same code that would work on the nvidia on linux wouldn't work on windows and vice versa.  I was trying to make a generic OpenCL miner that everyone could run on all 3 platforms, and I spent months tweaking different kernels for each GPU, but I was also working two jobs at the time and so I never finished it.  I ended up just leaving bitcoin on the back burner for a few years, then it exploded and people started asking me about the pizza trades.  Every time the value goes up on exchanges, people email me asking me to comment on it, but really there isn't much more to tell than what I explained here.

This is the old GPU mining release I made for Mac OS, probably won't work anymore though: http://eclipse.heliacal.net/~solar/bitcoin/Bitcoin-MacOSX-Intel-svn-75-opencl-2010-05-10.dmg


Wow!
I didn't know much more from you than the infamous pizza story. It all happened way before my time.
Well, in case you don't want to be seen as kind of a tragic bitcoin hero:
you already have more credibility than, lets say, MtGox and many of the other big bitcoin businesses. I don't know what your personal interests are these days, but whatever you do - a professional exchange, a meta-protocol, hardware, a foundation - you can be sure of a *lot* of attention.
With what I already knew of you, and the little I read now, I already stand behind you fully. In case you ever need a bunch of geeks standing behind you :-)
(I hope you don't understand this wrong. Financial success isn't the most important thing. But you sure deserve it)

Laszlo you legend! Just saw the pictures for the first time. Considering the pizzas were from Papa Johns, and you shared them with your daughter, I think you should call your pizza place Papa Laszlos.

This needs to be a project on bitcoinstarter.com

The pizza thing was a lot more popular than I thought so I made good on as many trades as I could.  Other than a little bit of single digit change, I spent everything I mined.
I've been there, done that when I first got into Bitcoin too.  Everything I made was sold or spent.  I didn't start actually saving anything long-term until 2013.

Of course, if I was a Bitcoin millionaire, I'd probably tell people the same thing (that I had very little left), so as to make myself a less interesting hack target.  KnightMB did that with his 371,000 BTC.

The mystery always remains... Wink

Thanks for the kind words guys.

The pizza thing was a lot more popular than I thought so I made good on as many trades as I could.  Other than a little bit of single digit change, I spent everything I mined.  As you all know, the difficulty rises to adjust to hashing power, so eventually the mining wasn't worth it for me.

Pics are still in the same location for anyone interested.  I didn't trade bitcoins for the child - she's my daughter, Amy.  Only the pizza was traded.

Thanks for getting the ball rolling, Laszlo, history was made that day.

It makes you wonder what will happen in a few years to the price.  Will bitcoin become mainstream or will it fade away as a interesting footnote in history?

If you can recall, about how many of the trades did you end up doing?  I remember reading you posted that you were about done doing the trade and no longer honoring it later in the thread.

I live right off Gate Pkwy / Baymeadows East, so if you are still in J'ville, would love to buy you a beer sometime and thank you for your contribution.

I only have one criticism...did you have to order them from Papa John's? Wasn't there a better pizza place in your location? I don't want to impugn your taste or anything, but Papa John's makes terrible pizza in my experience.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

Hehe, didn't know that u made the first gpu miner, that is pretty amazing!

If any of you could go back in time and had the mining power to mine as much btc as you wanted to, when would you stop mining, knowing the price will end up at 1250 in 4 years? When would you have enough btc to not give a fuck anymore?Smiley

kind of an ethical question.

I heard from one person who bought a house with their pizza bitcoins, indirectly, by trading it for cash first.  Apparently it was a lot of hassle with the bank due to AML and just their general distaste for currencies they don't control.  I wish I could say I did the same, but the pizza didn't appreciate the same way as the bitcoins Smiley

Is there any Bitcoin'er that haven't heard the pizza story? As others mentioned what he did was really important to Bitcoin in terms of PR. If it's true that lazslo really is left with nothing, then I vote for making a casual bitcoin collection to give back a little for what he's done.

If marketing ever meant a huge deal for the adoption of Bitcoin (no doubt about that),  surely the pizza story is competing for the 1st prize.

kind of an ethical question.

Now the juicy part: He developed a GPU miner as (one of) the first. Having a hundredfold advantage over everyone else, and over the difficulty. He didn't mine the heck out of it, he made it open source, available for everybody!

Today people are laughing about the trade and how you could be a millionaire if you would have just held the BTC.

The point is: without the people that spended the money, BTC wouldn´t have established as payment system and the price would probably be less than in "the old times"

I really think you should do the AMA on reddit, laszlo. Not to earn money (although that would happen) - I think there are more people who would like to interview you.

Oh...and yes, please open a Pizza place Wink

First thing i'll say is you acquire a " Celebrity Status " in this forum.
No one is saying you stupid, Even if i was on your place @ that point of time , i wouldn't have cared that much about bitcoins, because i njoy pizza too.  if bitcoin  goes up again and touches the mark many expecting it to touch  i hope you won't get pissed off on yourself, but in the history of bitcoins your name will be there forever. Just wanna ask is there is anyone yet who interviewed you.. ?

Nice to see you're back laszlo! You're a true pioneer making that first or second bitcoin deal (I think I read somewhere that sirius did actually the first one). Anyways, it was a necessary step that sparked all this movement... Hope to see you here more frequently!

Thanks for coming back and sharing your thoughts, this is an amazing story

Hi Laszlo

I first learned of bitcoin in March 2013 and it has changed my life.  The pizza deal has become legendary and it was a turning point in bitcoin history.  Thanks for doing it.  I would like to order you some pizza as a 'thank you' for helping make the bitcoin idea a reality.

At the time, Gavin had a bitcoin 'faucet' that gave out bitcoins for free, and a few people were trading them for less than a cent each, but nothing serious.  You can probably find all the old posts on this forum still.  I was learning OpenCL programming and mining bitcoins with a video card so the pizza was a good deal for me.  I couldn't have known that my pizza trade would end up being such a big deal, or that so many others would become interested in bitcoin and thus drive the value up.  The people I traded with didn't know it was going to explode either, they just took a risk - spending their 'real' money to buy some guy pizza in exchange for some internet Monopoly money. 

Laszlo




Without things like this, bitcoins would still be worthless...trade = spreading coins to more users; the broader the user base, the more valuable bitcoins become.

Thank you for pioneering Laszlo! And for protecting our nascent network so that it had a chance to grow up!

Welcome back Lazslo!


a hat tip to you sir.


Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

I think that laszlo should get free pizza once per week for lifetime either from a pizzeria as a promotion or from wealthy bitcoiners (me not included, i sold it all in 2011 Smiley

Good idea, I'm all up for supporting this. Smiley

Welcome back Bitcoin Hall of Famer! I hope we can see you more around here. Opening a pizzeria is a good idea you should consider. It could be a meeting place for Bitcoiners. Smiley

Maybe we could approach the Papa John's where it was ordered from and make the deal of "free pizza for life" with them? That should be some pretty good PR for them (even if the transaction was actually in fiat).

The pizzeria that sold the first Bitcoin pizza ever!


It would probably at least attract people locally who are into Bitcoin...

What would be also really interesting if have a message from the person that bought the pizza, know what he was thinking about bitcoin, the trade and the price upward potential.

10,000 bitcoins could have been exchanged against 41$ at the time apparently

I spent it all on pizza long ago:  https://blockchain.info/address/1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

3-4 years ago there were less than 100 people frequenting this forum, and I was pretty happy to trade 10,000 coins for pizza.  I mean people can say I'm stupid, but it was a great deal at the time.  I don't think anyone could have known it would take off like this. Smiley

Wow, laszlo is back.

I bought my first coin in March 2013 and I was extremely lucky and successful trader. Even if you could easily say that you don't have BTC anymore to keep low profile, I don't care, it would be shame that I have more BTC than you do despite you contributing much more to thing that looks like my life changer.

Hi all, I'm a new Bitcoin user and I'm starting to generate some of my own coins.  I have a few friends who are also using it now.

I am a programmer by trade and have a fair amount of experience with different platforms like linux, Mac OS, iPhone, etc.

I am interested in running Bitcoin on other platforms like iPhone and I'm wondering if there is any interest in this or if anyone has a problem with this.  I'm also wondering if someone has already done this so I don't waste my time.  Thanks!

My Bitcoin address is 1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

-Laszlo


Good luck getting anything bitcoin-related on the iPhone, Apple are notoriously against it. They recently removed the Blockchain app from the appstore with no reason.

Wow.

I have to say that, from one small hobbyist miner to the pioneer of GPU mining: You, sir, are my hero, (well, right up there with Satoshi anyways)

If bitcoin succeeds, I predict there will be a statue of you built someday.

Hehe, didn't know that u made the first gpu miner, that is pretty amazing!

If any of you could go back in time and had the mining power to mine as much btc as you wanted to, when would you stop mining, knowing the price will end up at 1250 in 4 years? When would you have enough btc to not give a fuck anymore?Smiley

kind of an ethical question.

an answer to your *kind-of* ethical question.

I was mining back then too, (not quite as far back) I haven't stopped mining since, and I don't expect I ever will.

Welcome back Bitcoin Hall of Famer! I hope we can see you more around here. Opening a pizzeria is a good idea you should consider. It could be a meeting place for Bitcoiners. Smiley

This is such an incredibly good idea. Just make sure it's pizza and beer Cheesy -- family style during the day, more pub style later on??

 I am still trying to get my head around the whole "decentralized autonomous whatever" thing, but this thread so far makes me wonder if I'm not witnessing the first crowd-sourced launch of what could be the first attempt at one?

If so, I'm in.

1 BTC sent your way you Bitcoin legend  Grin

Wow thanks, I do still have access to it.  You should never delete a wallet, even if you've spent what was 'in' it.
I appreciate the donations, but nobody owes me anything.. I generated my share and I spent it, it was just at a time when the value was lower, but so was the generation difficulty, and the block reward was 50.

I heard from one person who bought a house with their pizza bitcoins, indirectly, by trading it for cash first.  Apparently it was a lot of hassle with the bank due to AML and just their general distaste for currencies they don't control.  I wish I could say I did the same, but the pizza didn't appreciate the same way as the bitcoins Smiley

I think pizza always appreciates. @Laszlo your pizza sorry was the first story I read about bitcoins and my first knowledge of cryptocurrencies, your a legend.

The pizza was one of the first times I really took notice of bitcoin. It really was a historic milestone for bitcoin.

I don't remember if I had heard of the white paper before hearing of the pizza, but the pizza is the news bite that really sticks out in my mind.

The pizzia story is epic.

It really puts into perspective the power of bitcoin.

You can ignore the fact as to how expensive the pizza was, but remember the fact as to how quickly funds were able to be transferred across the atlantic for a specific product.

I spent it all on pizza long ago:  https://blockchain.info/address/1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

3-4 years ago there were less than 100 people frequenting this forum, and I was pretty happy to trade 10,000 coins for pizza.  I mean people can say I'm stupid, but it was a great deal at the time.  I don't think anyone could have known it would take off like this. Smiley

IIRC the guy who bought pizza for 10k coins said in his OP (or maybe in the thread where he made his offer) that he had mining hardware that could easily generate 10k+ coins per month and he actually did it a couple of times. Assuming he did not completely cash out, he likely has a good amount of coins in his possession. It may not be millions of dollars worth, but certainly a good amount by most people's standards.

Don't know if you're still coming here, just thought I'd let you know i was explaining bitcoin pizza day to someone who has no idea about bitcoin the other day, in other words.... you are as much a part of the bitcoin story as, dare I say it, Satoshi. Thanks for giving BTC a value.

It's kind of funny to read these old posts and see how people threw bitcoins at eachother. lol Smiley

If you google OP's address there are several addresses with 100btc that have remained untouched since 2011.

most likely lost

Ouch. This was like one of the first old posts address I followed and already so much btc lost. I wonder how much of the 12 mil that are out there now are still in circulation and accessible.

As Satoshi said it himself..... lost coins are like donated coins..... to EVERYONE. So i dont mind lost coins at all.... i wish half of that 12 millions are lost.... Cheesy


Imagine in the future if btc would hit 100.000$, people are gonna start teaming up to hunt these lost address down and try to access them.

Actually, why haven't they already started?

But bitcoin so far was 3200$ almost, its too far in reality to 100K$ before it happens I think it will take decades before it reach that amount.
I guess there's a miracle happen were bitcoin becomes 100,000$ so that many of the bitcoin enthusiast instantly become a millionaires for sures.

this post was on 2010, this show that how people in the past tackled about the price of coin but it is not only 100$ we want it to 100000$ and wait the time for it.

Bitcoin is now $4000+. We all agree with this point that the prices are going to boost up in future but what will be the highest price that Bitcoins will be able to touch, is something that I think is unknown to everyone at the moment. Let’s wait and watch. I do not want to give the wrong idea but bitcoin holders will be the rich people of future also.

From here on out the "price" of bitcoin as measured in central banker confetti is kind of meaningless. 

They can create ANY amount of fiat currency.

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

Bitcoin is not exactly $4000 at the moment but it is predicted it will reach this amount by the end of this year. Do correct me if I am wrong! I will highly appreciate it. I agree with this point that no person can predict the highest target it is going to achieve. Also, you are not pushing false ideas into anyone about the new generation of rich people. We all are aware of this fact already.

I ended up getting 2 AMD Radeon 5970s with the bitcoins I was exploiting, but at the time, the OpenCL libraries from AMD and nvidia were all really buggy and I could never work properly with Many GPUs. I also did work at the time and so I never finished it. I ended up leaving only a bitcoin on the record drive for a few years, then it exploded and people started asking me about the merchandise trades. I am a Bitcoin millionaire, I can tell everyone the same thing, to make myself a little interesting hacking target

Yes, I think that Laszlo will receive donations on that wallet for the rest of the life of Bitcoin, just like people do donations in the memory of the saints. Don't get me wrong: Laszlo has absolutely no merits. Nor guilt for having spent all his Bitcoins when they had no value. Merit and guilt are all just in our imagination. But Laszlo happened to be the focus of one of the first narratives in Bitcoin's history, and this made him an archetype, a mythological character everybody in the community will keep talking about generation after generation.
Not too bad anyway - huh?

1 BTC sent your way you Bitcoin legend  Grin

Wow thanks, I do still have access to it.  You should never delete a wallet, even if you've spent what was 'in' it.
I appreciate the donations, but nobody owes me anything.. I generated my share and I spent it, it was just at a time when the value was lower, but so was the generation difficulty, and the block reward was 50.

Laszlo


If only more people here from your time were as humble with their opinion as you are lol About that pizza thing.. have you still got the number of the guy you paid those 10k coins to?? lol

Do not forget that he contributed to the project in other tangible ways.

We would be. perhaps a bit more late and maybe would have thanked another Laszlo.

I spent it all on pizza long ago:  https://blockchain.info/address/1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

3-4 years ago there were less than 100 people frequenting this forum, and I was pretty happy to trade 10,000 coins for pizza.  I mean people can say I'm stupid, but it was a great deal at the time.  I don't think anyone could have known it would take off like this. Smiley

Laszlo

So you are the crazy guy. By the way, are you having some change in your pockets? Meaning, a few millions? If you heard of Bitcoin of that long, you should still be doing great with money now. Tongue

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

As soon as Bitcoin appeared, very many were able to earn on time to buy it for a smaller amount.

Hi all, I'm a new Bitcoin user and I'm starting to generate some of my own coins.  I have a few friends who are also using it now.

I am a programmer by trade and have a fair amount of experience with different platforms like linux, Mac OS, iPhone, etc.

I am interested in running Bitcoin on other platforms like iPhone and I'm wondering if there is any interest in this or if anyone has a problem with this.  I'm also wondering if someone has already done this so I don't waste my time.  Thanks!

Are you still alive, Sir? I want to meet you and shake hand with you. I guess what are you feeling now after knew about bitcoin price. Do you still have a little bit of bitcoin? Maybe you forget you still have some in your other wallet?
When you make this post I knew nothing about bitcoin. But if I were you, I will save some bitcoin in another wallet like if I have money I will save some in my slight wallet  Grin

I really think you should do the AMA on reddit, laszlo. Not to earn money (although that would happen) - I think there are more people who would like to interview you.

I was learning OpenCL programming and mining bitcoins with a video card so the pizza was a good deal for me.  I couldn't have known that my pizza trade would end up being such a big deal, or that so many others would become interested in bitcoin and thus drive the value up

great concept and can produce Bitcoin coffers with the platform you create.

if you are consistent with your statement like that, then I am sure you will be a competitor of bounty.portals.com, bountyhive and also bountyplatform. these three flatporms are very popular in this forum.

That was indeed something. This is a very interesting story for me. Going back, reading this legendary threads just fills my imagination. What if I was jercos. Who is jercos? What would I do for that kind of money, etc. this is indeed a legendary milestone in the history of bitcoin.

Btw, this is not the very first transaction using btc. this is the publicly known transaction but not the very first. the very first happened in the dark web.

A few people were trading them for less than a cent each, but nothing serious.  You can probably find all the old posts on this forum still.  I was learning OpenCL programming and mining bitcoins with a video card so the pizza was a good deal for me.  I couldn't have known that my pizza trade would end up being such a big deal, or that so many others would become interested in bitcoin and thus drive the value up.

So legends are showing up now to prove that the system is really good and healthy. First i saw posting on this thread is the owner of the system whom i know for his name Satoshi Nakamoto followed by one of the reason bitcoin has nowadays is Al Finney where he gave an update that he is working on a digital wallet and now we had this another legend. Well who could be the next in line?

For beginners it's always important to know the real information. But it's hard to find relevant information, so you should look for friends and communicate with them about it. People are different and may not provide valid information.

If you can understand the application then you must write the link on your thread.
So everyone knows where to find the application.

Thank you very much for your initiative but unfortunately I am not interested in growing with you.

Hello,

I am contacting you from Fulwell73, an Emmy award winning production company.

We are making a documentary about the emergence of blockchain technology and the evolving conversation between regulators, traders and evangelists.

We are interested in using the famous photo of the pizzas you ordered for 10,000 as it was an important moment in the history of bitcoin. Would you be willing to let us use them?

If you could please get back to me as soon as possible by dm.

Many thanks,
Simon
