150 BTC worth of Silver. Come to think of it I made a loss. Guess if I regret it  Wink.

Does the exchange rate at the time of the transaction matter in this?

As far as purchases I now regret ...

I still have unspent a Starbux $10 gift card that I purchased with bitcoins, paying 50 BTC for it (back when they were trading at under $0.25 per BTC).

There are a few people who paid for ASIC hardware back when BTC/USD was about $6 and are still waiting, with regrets.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

Wow congrats casascius, you deserve it.  I like to think I helped pay for a little tiny bit of that...  Wink

It was not me, but 10 000 BTC pizza sounds rather expensive.

Yeah, that's the one I remembered. I think the epic pizza request thread is still on this site somewhere.
That's like a $300,000 pizza now.... *nice*!

I think technically it was two pizzas, so about $150,000 each  Grin

Does a house for 6385 BTC sound like a better deal?

I guess the most expensive single item Ive purchased was a SSD harddrive 12btc (~200$ at the time), other things I've spent on are bitcoin t-shirts, gambling sites, hosting and casascius coins.

Bitcoin trinkets now on my online store: btc trinkets.com <- Bitcoin Tiepins, cufflinks, lapel pins, keychains, card holders and challenge coins.

An imaginary TouchPad from a scammer.  Better to learn the lesson earlier than later I suppose (this was probably a year ago).
