As Bitcoin (BTC) Turns Ten, Here’s a Brief Throwback14.19

Ten years ago on Oct. 31, pioneer cryptocurrency Bitcoin was introduced to the world after pseudonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto sent its whitepaper to a private mailing list of cryptographers. A decade later, the initially envisioned landscape has spawned into a multibillion-dollar sector, rivaling the traditional finance sector.

The first bitcoins were transacted privately among a group of individuals who assigned it no value. However, one of the earliest known transactions was for two pizzas in May 2010, when developer Laszlo Hanyecz offered 10,000 BTC, about $30 at the time, for his order on a BitcoinTalk forum.
