 It is widely believed that the first real-world bitcoin transaction took place on May 21st, 2010. Laszlo Hanyecz, a programmer living in Florida, sent 10,000 bitcoin (BTC), the online-only, open source cryptocurrency, to a volunteer in England, who then spent about $25 to order Hanyecz some Papa John's. Hanyecz then uploaded the image above as proof that the transaction had been successfully completed.

It was a major milestone in bitcoin's short history. And as of right now, it cost Hanyecz three-quarters of a million dollars. You are looking at a $750,000 pizza.

I have seen his answer. The pizza was great and he doesn't/didn't regret the purchase since it helped show the value of Bitcoins.

Sure the pizza was great, it looks jammy! Or maybe he helped to show the value of pizzas?

Assuming infinite liquidity, infinite cash on hand, and instantaneous transfer of funds I guess.

Zuckerberg selled a small stack of Facebook for 500 000$ to Peter Thiel, the first major investor. Thiel sold his stock for for over one billion USD. So Zuckerberg sold a share worth 1 billionen for 500 000$. What a moron...
