Have you ever wondered when did people started using Bitcoin as a currency? Well, it started off as a currency back then being called by bankers and financial experts as a bubble. Bitcoin is the first of many cryptocurrency.

It was created back in 2008 and wasn't used as it is today until 2009. And if you are new to the cryptoverse, you might or might not have heard of the infamous story of boxes of pizza purchased using 10,000 Bitcoins. The guy behind that incredible story is Laszlo Hanyecz, and he by then, birthed the new era of Bitcoin being used as a currency.

Today, as we know it, marks the 11th anniversary of that Bitcoin Pizza story. Days ago, a well-known Bitcoin maximalist named Anthony Pompliano announced to fellow Bitcoin enthusiasts that he is launching a pizza chain that will be selling 10,000 pieces of pizza pie in the US to commemorate that biggest event that ever happened in the blockchain technology history.

This advertisement took attention from both maxi, anti, and crypto-agnostic groups of people in the Twitter scene of the cryptoverse.

Some thought that it is actually great and felt bullish about Bitcoin even if the market keeps on declining for the past few days starting last Wednesday, 19th of May 2021.

If you are also quite active in the Twitter scene people are enjoying the grand advertisement of the month for Bitcoin. Most of the maxis loved it, but there lots that made fun about how Bitcoin Pizza doesn't take Bitcoin as a payment for the transactions. Some even call it ironic and patronized it and called it "Fiat Pizza" instead.

[Fiat - Government issued money such as US dollars, Japanese Yen, Philippine Peso etc.]

I think the advertising was fine. What about you? Feel free to leave your comments!
