No. It was immediately announced in a mailing list. Bitcoin was really small back then so it didn't make much sense to start building an exchange right away.

The first year of mining was a slow one, even at difficulty 1.
By Year 1, there were only 1.6M bitcoins.  The other 6.4M bitcoins were mined in years 2 and 3.

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 wallets instead.

"BitCoin Pizza" sounds like a great business proposal, now that I think about it...
I think that pizza must have been the only one in the world to have become more valuable after it was eaten. Cheesy
