Domino’s Pizza accepts payments in Bitcoin!
The history of Bitcoin and the world of cryptocurrencies will always have a special link with pizzas.
Remember that a few years ago, in May 2010, a programmer from Florida decided to pay in Bitcoins to bring home some pizzas.
Laszlo Hanyecz, programmer and user of BitcoinTalk website, decided to publish on the forum that he would pay 10,000 Bitcoins to anyone who would bring some pizzas to his home.
It took 4 days to complete the task, because at that time, several members of the forum thought that it was necessary to pay between 25 and 30 dollars for these 10,000 BTC (35 million dollars at the price of today).
Today again, pizzas and Bitcoins are on the front page of the newspaper, that the LN.pizza site allows anyone in the United States to buy pizzas at Domino’s Pizza through the Lightning Network.
