Laszlo purchased 2 pizza for 10000 bitcoin. If I'm correct, I have read about the whole story a few days ago but I forgot the name of the seller. In an article here in bitcointalk, I have seen some details when the seller have sold most of their bitcoin etc.
Can someone give me the link of that article in bitcointalk or share details about that seller?

A British man offers two Papa John's Pizza. But don't have any idea about the real identity of that British man.

On May 22, 2010, now known as Bitcoin Pizza Day, Laszlo Hanyecz agreed to pay 10,000 Bitcoins for two delivered Papa John's pizzas. Organized on bitcointalk forum, the Florida man reached out for help. "I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas..

A British man took up Hanyecz's offer and bought the two pizzas for him in exchange for the 10,000 Bitcoins.

There seems to be no name for the British man who took up the offer. Maybe you can find it on the original thread, although what you will see there would probably be only the forum name of the guy.

You mean Jeremy Sturdivant ("Jercos"), the person who sold those couple of pizzas in that TX.

A year ago or so I was wondering what the lad has actually done with those 10K BTCs, and if he even conserved them to date. No such luck (for him), as he declared in the following extract from the below referenced interview:

Quote
Q. What do you primarily use bitcoins for? Do you still control millions of dollars worth?
A. Bitcoin as a currency is meant to be spent. Those 10,000 BTC made it back into the economy fairly quickly, around the time they were worth some $400. A ~10x ROI from simply trading in a different currency is quite good, even if that factor could have been higher had I held on to said currency longer. Naturally there will always be people hoarding coins, trying to get rich, and quite a few people did get quite rich, but they wouldn't have got that way without economic growth allowing it. To that extent my bitcoin holdings do usually measure in hundreds or thousands of USD, simply because I use them much as I would a checking account, to conduct business both online and offline when I have the opportunity. Notably the "humble bundles" and the attached store accepting bitcoins significantly bolstered my video game library.

He actually didn’t work at the pizza store, but acted as a reseller for the occasion (actually recalling it being Dominos and not Papa Johns, but that seems like a memory slip).

See https://bitcoinwhoswho.com/jercosinterview (2015 interview).
