There is this one chap who has been read about in the cryptocurrency world every May since 2010.
This young man, Laszlo Hanyecz, bought 2 pieces of John’s Stick pizza with 10,000 BTC on May 22, 2010. Later, May 22nd was designated as “Bitcoin Pizza Day” to commemorate the success of the Bitcoin payment for the physical purchase.
Despite the fact that today, BTC fell over 8% during the day, falling below $40,000, the 2 pizzas are still worth a whopping $400 million.
In the past, on Bitcoin Pizza Day, users in the cryptocurrency world would commemorate this rather meaningful holiday by eating pizza. Nowadays, the cryptocurrency sector is full of creative ways to play with NFT, DeFi, etc. We can also spend the holiday this way.
Have an edible pizza NFT
A few days ago, the PizzaDAO team sold 10,000 unique digital pizza NFTs – RarePizza – and used 50% of the proceeds to host the world’s largest pizza party, i.e. 10,000 free physical pizzas from pizzerias around the world on Bitcoin Pizza Day, May 22, with 49 percent goes to support contributors and 1 percent continues the tradition using a DAO format. The campaign has been backed by a global organization called Pizza Mafia. Supporters claim RarePizza is the first edible NFT.
RarePizza (Rare Pizza) is a 10,000-piece traditionally baked pizza NFT made in collaboration with over 100 of the world’s top artists. what sets RarePizza apart from other NFTs is that it is physically time-sensitive.
The RarePizza Box design is unveiled at the time of pre-order sales. There are 99 editions available; each with a cover design, name and description. Each box has a ZABOX token number that indicates the serial number of the box in the minting sequence. Owning a ZABOX token ensures the holder will receive a RarePizza NFT at the Global Pizza Party on May 22nd.
From the design on the box to each ingredient in the pizza, all of RarePizzas’ products are contributed by volunteers. Notably, the 99 types of boxes were designed by visual artist Anthony Shafer using professional-grade cinematic VFX software that is both different from current NFT trends and difficult to replicate and alter.
PizzaDAO developers integrated Chainlink’s Verifiable Randomness Function (VRF) to ensure that each pizza is unique and deliver the RarePizza NFT to customers with a provable random distribution.
Using the seed values provided by the user and Oracle’s private key, the Chainlink VRF generates verifiable random numbers and corresponding cryptographic proofs of integrity, which are then published to the chain. The user can then combine the seed value, the prophet’s public key and the proof to independently verify that the randomness has not been tampered with in any way. the integration of Chainlink VRF is a simple process that allows to focus on the way RarePizza NFT is made and distributed without the fear of creating pizzas illegally.
Users can purchase RarePizza Box in Opensea’s secondary marketplace (participation link: https://opensea.io/assets/rare-pizzas-box) or at RarePizzas.com (note that the wallet only supports MetaMask and only supports ETH payments).
Buy Pizza to Support the Bitcoin Developer Fund
Recently, Anthony Pompliano, founder of Morgan Creek, announced the launch of Bitcoin Pizza (https://www.eatbitcoinpizza.com/), a program designed to allow pizza restaurants to offer Bitcoin-themed pizzas on Bitcoin Pizza Day, with a total of 10,000 pizzas to be sold, which Profits will go to support the Bitcoin Developer Fund, which supports the Human Rights Foundation (HRF).
According to Anthony Pompliano, the program will first launch simultaneously in ten U.S. cities including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Houston, Chicago, Miami, Washington, D.C., New York and Boston, with a third party processing the orders for delivery from May 22 to 29.
Currently, Bitcoin Pizza is offering five different pizzas, including a pepperoni pizza called “Laser Eyes” and a pineapple pizza called “Satoshi Nakamoto’s Favorite. ‘s Favorite), a pineapple and ham pizza.
However, Bitcoin Pizza is not yet able to accept cryptocurrency payments.
Get free BTC with pizza purchase
U.S.-based pizza franchise Stick John’s is offering its U.K. customers £10 in free Bitcoin, according to Cyrpto Slate. According to a new offer on its website’s homepage, “select the Bitcoin offer online and spend at least £30 to receive a £15 discount and £10 worth of free Bitcoin.” The offer is reportedly in partnership with Luno, a London cryptocurrency exchange, and according to its Facebook page, the promotion will end on May 23.
The deal is a good one to get BTC for free with the purchase of a pizza.
As a cryptocurrency person, even if the market is down, you have to believe that “many armies never say die”. There are still 2 days left before the official holiday, so hurry up and take action.
