What is Bitcoin Pizza Day? Eleven years ago on May 22, 2010, one of the early adopters of Bitcoin purchased a pair of Papa John’s pizzas using 10,000 Bitcoins. The purchase equated to roughly $41 dollars in 2010, based on the going rate for Bitcoin at that time, and is widely viewed as the first time a virtual currency had been used to buy anything in the real world.
In partnership with XBTO, Inter Miami CF aims to educate fans on crypto and how it is being used in our everyday lives. XBTO is a seven-year-old cryptofinance firm that uses sophisticated financial and quantitative skills to help blockchain companies and institutional investors create a stable and prosperous crypto ecosystem.
