The crypto craze is certainly credible and contagious! Love it, or hate, you just can’t ignore it. Every now and then, it creeps up in a discussion, giving you the crypto FOMO. The recent surge in Bitcoin’s prices does not help at all. And then there’s the “Bitcoin Pizza Day” — a memorable day in Bitcoin history. On May 22, 2010, a virtual currency developer Laszlo Hanyecz traded 10,000 bitcoins for two Papa John’s pizzas. In March this year, when bitcoin hit an all-time high, with its price crossing £44,000 (nearly €51,181), Hanyecz’s two pizzas would have been worth a mouthwatering £440M (nearly €511.8M).
That’s not all! Even the world’s leading companies such as Tesla, WeWork, Microsoft have started accepting crypto as a valid form of payment. Earlier this year, Tesla even acquired $1.5B in bitcoin, as disclosed by its SEC filing.
