MIAMI, Florida, USA, May 26, 2023/ — It was a night of excitement, surprise and record-breaking achievement as 2 Hungry Howie’s pizzas were auctioned off for a staggering $10,000 Bitcoins at LABITCONF & BitBasel event. The auction, just after midnight on May 22, marked a historic moment in the cryptocurrency world and left attendees in awe at the posh Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach.

The Pizza.Art event was a celebration of Bitcoin Pizza Day, commemorating the very first documented transaction using Bitcoin, where 10,000 Bitcoins were exchanged for two Papa John’s pizzas on May 22, 2010 (worth approximately $41) . The buyer was a programmer and former miner named Laszlo Hanyecz. Hanyecz posted on a bitcoin forum offering 10k bitcoin for two large pizzas.

But the event, presented by LABITCONF and produced by BitBasel, took an incredible turn when history somehow recreated itself. The tension in the room was palpable at the start of the auction, and the energy skyrocketed when the final bid settled at an incredible 10,000 Bitcoin (like in 2010). It is an astonishing value of 268,900,000.00 USD. The stunned crowd erupted in cheers, seeing history unfold before their eyes.

“We wanted to pay homage to the incredible milestone of Bitcoin Pizza Day in a unique and exciting way,” said event organizer Scott Speigle of BitBasel, “What better way to do that than by selling to auction 2 delicious pizzas from Hungry Howie’s, a brand adored by pizza & BTC enthusiasts nationwide? »

The partnership between the hungry howie’s pizza & Subs of Florida and the Miami PizzaArt event has created a buzz within the cryptocurrency community. It has attracted enthusiasts and curious people from all over the world. The combination of cutting-edge technology and culinary art captivated attendees, with local artists making Bitcoin mashups and spin-off art and using Hungry Howie’s pizza boxes as backdrops.

A creative and fun twist. In a thrilling twist of events, event organizers and activation partner blocqx laboratories later announced that the auction was an orchestrated auction simulation. One interviewee, Elizabeth Monroe, said, “It was an important event and a great way to have fun with the current bear market conditions while highlighting how far we’ve come since 2010.”
