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

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

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

Surely you have a few hundred bitcoins tucked away somewhere...you didn't really spend ALL of it on pizza, did you?

In honour of Laszlo I will make my first Bitcoin purchase a pizza thought takeaway.com (they accept Bitcoins). I wonder how much that pizza will be worth in a few years time? lol

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

You could be like the Buffalo Bill of Bitcoin, on tours, etc...

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

OP is a legend.  Bitcoin wouldn't be where it is today, without people supporting it 3/4 years ago (via mining, buying things, etc.).

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.
