Today, the cryptocurrency community is celebrating the first-ever Bitcoin (BTC) transaction for a consumer product. This happened in Florida when Laszlo Hanyecz spent 10,000 Bitcoin on two pizzas. Since that moment, the crypto community celebrates the Pizza Day. The recognized virtual currency exchange Huobi Global is currently offering Bitcoin at 50% discount for some users.
