But it was Laszlo Hanyecz who first found a use for BTC. The Florida-based programmer swapped 10 000 coins for a pair of Domino’s pizzas. Yes siree, Bob, that was the first documented case of spending BTC on real products.
Since then, the situation had changed. These days, you can purchase tons of useful (and fancy) stuff with 10 000 Bitcoins. Sure thing, the purchasing power of the new digital money has changed since 2010. At various times, you could get yourself a new iPad (2010), Tesla Model S electrocar (2012), and even a couple of last edition Lambos (2015).
