If you are lucky the block can be seen here. But you will probably get a “please try again shortly” message for blocks that old.

3. May 22nd, 2010: The pizza day

The first bitcoin purchase. A man named Laszlo Hanyecz purchased 2 pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins. The bitcoin value was approximately $0.08 USD at the time of the offer. Laszlo’s presumed twitter account (not verified) reads: “I am the person who bought the 10000btc pizza 8 years ago. I am poor now”.

4. November 28th, 2013: 1 Bitcoin = 1,000USD

The day one bitcoin was worth 1,000USD. A few days later, the price dropped below this mark for almost 5 years.

5. March 2nd, 2017: 1 Bitcoin = 1 Oz of Gold

That day one bitcoin was worth more than 1 ounce of gold.


I will keep adding more dates as time goes by. Until next block!
