May 22 is now forever known as Bitcoin Pizza Day, the holiday marking the date in 2010 when the first real-world good was bought with the first decentralized digital money.
Yet like every holiday, be it Thanksgiving or Valentine’s Day, Bitcoin Pizza Day might say more about those celebrating it today than any of the actual historical facts. Indeed, there remain those who view the holiday as passé or even against the values of the Bitcoin community.
What remains true is that by May 2010, Bitcoin had a small, but growing economy, one where bitcoin were still mostly traded peer-to-peer and on some small exchanges.
Eager to push the frontier of Bitcoin commerce further, Laszlo Hanyecz, an early developer and miner, put out the call that he was willing and ready to pay 10,000 BTC for two pizzas, should someone be willing to take him up on the trade.
Bitcoin user Jeremy “Jercos” Sturdivant would agree to the terms, and two Papa John’s pies would arrive at Hanyecz’s house shortly thereafter. History was made — but some supporting facts have been lost to time.

All orders are processed by myself to a local printing company. This means that there are no stocks. Twice a week I gather and process all orders. This way I am more personally involved in the whole process of each order. However, this means that the delivery is not as fast as with a dropship service. I will pack, send and number the posters.
*Please note that shipping times may take longer due to COVID-19.
The shipping time varies per location of course, but my goal is to have your poster received within 2 to 3 weeks. All posters can be tracked with a track and trace code. You will receive this code as soon as the parcel is delivered to the post office.
*The poster will be delivered without frame!
Are you experiencing problems during the order process because your country is not supported? Feel free to contact me via email or twitter, so I can help you further. This also applies if you would like a product in another size or material such as canvas.
Certificate of Authenticity
All the posters that are sold have a certificate of authenticity. Those certificates are linked to a time-stamped provenance record and stored in a permanent, decentralized and anonymous ledger on the Bitcoin blockchain. Certificates are easily and instantly accessible via smartphone or computer, but you will also be sent a paper version. More info
