On May 22, 2010, an early Bitcoin user from Florida named Laszlo Hanyecz agreed to pay a fellow BitcoinTalk forum member 10,000 BTC in exchange for two Papa John’s pizzas. Bitcoin historians have identified this as the first real-world economic transaction using Bitcoin. At the time, 10,000 BTC was only worth approximately $25, but today it would be worth tens of millions of dollars. It was definitely the most expensive pizza in history.
May 22 has come to be celebrated in the cryptocurrency community as "Bitcoin Pizza Day." To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Laszlo’s 10,000 BTC pizza purchase, we have created a special edition of our popular REAL Series wallet, called REAL Pizza. The inspiration for this special edition comes from our desire to live in a world where enjoying Bitcoin is as common as eating pizza, and Ballet wallets are designed to help make that world a reality.
2010 — 2020
The REAL Pizza wallet has a pizza logo and a native Segwit bech32 address, but is otherwise functionally the same as the standard REAL Series wallets. Please note that we have purposely removed all references to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency from this physical wallet, so that it cannot be identified as a cold storage device or related to cryptocurrency in any way. In essence, the REAL Pizza serves as a "stealth" wallet, where casual observers will not be able to easily recognize it as related to Bitcoin or cryptocurrency. It will not draw unwanted attention from curious eyes. Just like Laszlo’s original purchase of two pizzas, the REAL Pizza is always sold in sets of two wallets.
