Hope everyone had a great Bitcoin Pizza Day.  As it is the #1 thread on this list (by age) it seemed like a good time to stroll down memory lane with some of the classics.

For those newbies who wants to check the blockchain transaction, this will help:

Lol, so does anyone know if the guy who sold the pizza kept the coins or what price he sold them at?

Hi, Hueristic,

Sold his coins on July 2010. This will help you:
According to the seller of pizza - Jercos, who at that time was 19 years old, he sold his bitcoins when its walue increased ten times, that is for $ 400. Most likely, judging by the history of transactions, he did so in July 2010, just at that time bitcoin increased in price by 10 times, from $ 0.008 BTC to $ 0.08 for BTC. Jercos now works as an engineer-developer of Inovonics Inc, the company is engaged in radio equipment.

In general, as I thought, most of the bitcoin millionaires became them only because they did not keep track of BTC growth, and those who kept in the course of events earned a little.

Laszlo Hanyecz continued his business, 8 years ago he proved that bitcoin can be used as a currency, but in 2017 it was again questioned, as the price for the transaction sometimes reached $ 200. In 2018, he again proved that you can buy pizza for bitcoins, using the lightning network, he spent 0.00649 BTC for two pizzas, or $ 67, and the price for the transaction was 6 cents.

So long as we’re praising Hal, his original tweets on Bitcoin display how many steps ahead of everyone else he was thinking.

He is definitely one of the people who will always inspire me and I hope that future generations will not forget who Hal was.
We have to take care of it.

He is one of the greatest figures who have had opportunities to write on this forum.
And we are very lucky to be able to read his posts.

It is a pity that he cannot write any new ones.


Best wishes.

Enjoyed checking couple of those, will complete when I get enough time. By the way, "Saying hello, and have a few questions" was also a worthy reading for me. I have read all the post from that thread.

Any idea why the thread “We Are The New Wealthy Elite:” is locked now?

I know the OP didn’t lock it unless Theymos unbanned Atlas because Atlas was the OP.

In the last month or so that the "we are the new wealthy elite" thread was unlocked, I recall reporting the thread several times because there would be 2-3 pages of 1-2 liner posts from newbies in less than a 12 hour period.  Likely it just became too much work for the mods to delete so many posts on an ongoing basis.

How much alt coin diversification is necessary? if you are investing in Bitcoin, then perhaps 0%?

 That’s kind of stupid though.  Won’t they just move to an unlocked thread and post there instead?

Seems like an administrative discretion matter, and I seem to agree with you that it can be a kind of shame to lock some historically popular threads, but maybe closing the thread versus keeping it open becomes more the tendency, especially if there is no longer an active OP / thread owner?

Regarding where trolls chose to go, seems like a wakamole issue, but still it may be more problematic on certain threads that are not otherwise active, so the degree of the trolling and bot activity breeds like rabbits in australia and becomes a much BIGGER problem than it does on the more active threads.  I am surely just guessing, here.

Historical threads serves as a sort of reference,where most users refer back to,in order to get acquainted with what happened back then, it necessarily doesn't have to be educative or informative about the bitcoin or cryptocurrency,it could simply be comical,witty or unimportant  Grin
But just as we're always attracted to our history books, people will always get enticed by such threads..
