A delivery man who tipped $ 5 worth of Bitcoin (BTC) for his pizza delivery services has reportedly returned after seven years.
Specifically, according to a post by redditor btcbible, the Bitcoiner ordered a pizza on December 28, 2013. In fact, he gave the delivery man two options for his tip:
A $ 5.0,0069 BTC bill.

In this regard, the redditor btcbible expressed: “I let the pizza maker choose as a tip, between $ 5 in fiat or BTC”.
By then, the value was roughly the same. Since the price of Bitcoin was $ 774.
«As a pizza delivery man, I am now happy with your publication. I know that some of my other colleagues would consider that the additional work will be to figure out how to turn it into money.
What tip did the delivery man choose?
The redditor said at the time, that the dealer “had heard of Bitcoin on the news and had grasped the general concept of it. But, he was obviously still very new to it. ‘
This week, the dealer contacted btcbible for help on how to place the funds in an online wallet.
It goes without saying that he chose wisely. I responded with instructions on how to import the private key through Electrum.
In effect, with Bitcoin’s recent surge to a new all-time high, BTC is now worth roughly $ 400. An increase of more than 7,000%, since the pizza was delivered.
Most importantly, the redditor clarified that they were “not rich in Bitcoin”, as last year they had liquidated most of their funds to buy a house.
In conclusion, the most recent Reddit post indicates that btcbible gave the dealer 0.05 BTC. Or roughly $ 2,900.
What was the first purchase in BTC?
To recall, the first documented business purchase using BTC was an order for two pizzas on May 22, 2010. When a programmer paid 10,000 BTC.
Specifically, programmer Laszlo Hanyecz completed the first documented commercial purchase of Bitcoin, paying 10,000 BTC for two Papa John’s pizzas. By then, valued at $ 41.
Additionally, Brandon Mintz, the CEO of cryptocurrency ATM network, Bitcoin Depot, pointed out his story: “I spent around 5 Bitcoin on a box of donuts towards the end of 2012.”
Also, Tyler Winklevoss, in 2014 paid 312.5 BTC, for a ticket for the Virgin Galactic spacecraft.
Also, BitFlyer sending pizzas to people in need. Thus, as Andreas Antonopoulos recalling other first Bitcoin buying events.
In 2012, I paid 5 BTC for 1lbs of coffee beans. The coffee wasn’t good.
Everyone in bitcoin has had a “pizza day” spending moment. Some of you just haven’t realized it yet.

“We’ve all had a ‘Pizza Day’ moment. What’s yours?”
In closing, the Reddit post is a reminder of one of the most iconic stories in the crypto space, since the inception of Bitcoin.
I say goodbye with this phrase from Oscar Wilde: “These days people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”
