From OP's following post, it is clear that someone called "jercos" sold him the "World's Most Expensive Pizza"

I just want to report that I successfully traded 10,000 bitcoins for pizza.

Pictures: http://heliacal.net/~solar/bitcoin/pizza/

Thanks jercos!

But when I searched the forum for the member "jercos", there seems to be no one with that username.


When the forums changed to the current forum software, some old & abandoned usernames ceased to exist. You can't find my old username either, and that's a good thing, because I was unwise enough to use my real name.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I would love for Laszlo to come back to this thread and let us know what he's up to these days.

After all, he's only been away from the forum for around 7 months or so  Grin

He might of committed suicide. He paid $12m for two LARGE pizzas. I know I would.

No, he didn't. He's still around the bitcoin economy, just not this forum. I offered to send him another pair of pizzas about a year later for half price, he declined.  I'd wager that he's far from bitcoin broke, though. At the time, 10K bitcoins literally had no known value. It's this historic transaction, and his willingness to engage in it, that established the price.  Granted, the value of a bitcoin rose fast, both then and now, but someone had to be first; and that is why he did it.

Still no one has made the pizzas per bitcoin over time chart?  I'm shocked.  If we're going to keep posting a thread about this pizza for bitcoins thing after two years, isn't it time we get the graphic going?  I would do it myself but I'm not skilled at that kind of thing and I know a lot of you guys are!

Not currently actively browsing this forum.  I do still respond to PMs though.

That is so bloody sad to see it really is, he must have been so annoyed with himself i would be for the rest of my life, you held thousands of bitcoins and you basically gave them up Sad 

The fact getting here late is bad enough but imagine having them many thousands to then see the price rocket and you don't have any/many left i feel sorry for the dude lol

He could come back and write a book though i am sure that would net him something good enough to live on at least maybe even make him bitcoin famous

Lol unfortunately neither party, buyer or seller of pizza is rolling in it now.

Bitcoin's price at the time was in the penny range, so I doubt either have that stashed away right now.

Guess the pizza seller actually did make out.

Lazlo pretty much said he didn't keep any of his stash from back then:

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
