WEIRD & WONDERFUL BTC PURCHASES

WEIRD & WONDERFUL BTC PURCHASES

They are all paid via Bitcoin (BTC) by members of the Cointelegraph Bitcoin community! And as Bitcoin pizzas cost 10,000 BTC, now costing more than $ 300 million, public Bitcoin purchases have also skyrocketed.


Benjamin de Waal, VP engineering at Bitcoin exchange Swan Bitcoin told Cointelegraph, "I spent 7 BTC on a family trip to Japan a few years ago." At today's price, 7 BTC costs more than $ 200,000 - but Ben is happy because his kids are happy:


“It would be very appropriate now; but I have no regrets whatsoever. A good kid is full of fun, fun and learning. ”

Felix Crisan, a scammer vigilante, told Cointelegraph how he once used 50 BTC (worth $ 1.5 million) to develop his company's new software module in 2015. Crisan added that in 2016:


"Let's not forget to bet about 1BTC 'wasted' on who will be the next US president." [...] Yes, I did not succeed. "

That's a $ 30,000 bet on the current market price of BTC.


Jeffrey Albus, Editor of Cointelegraph, shared that he just went out for dinner to showcase his peer Bitcoin skills "sometime in 2011 or early 2012."


"We paid for 15 BTC - 12 meals, and 3 BTC left as a tip (which the attendant may have thrown away.)."

Worse, the value of 15 BTC back ten years ago was so small that it fell into full agreement: Albus had to fill it with good old greenbacks. The price of Bitcoiner-appropriate steak dinner now costs half a million dollars.


In a nutshell, Julien Liniger, chief executive officer of the Swiss Bitcoin exchange Relai - and a leading Bitcoin expert, told Cointelegraph that he "bought a bitcoin hoodie for 0.1 BTC long ago, but that was the last thing" - a $ 3,000 hoodie. He explained that "it became very foolish for me to use too many sats."


Meanwhile, a team at CoinCorner, the UK Bitcoin exchange behind the Lightning Network payment card, shared a few stories. Danny Scott, CEO, bought 50 Cent's album "Animal Ambition" with Bitcoin when the market price was around $ 600. 50 Cent famous for "forgetting" has received 700 BTC for the album - let's hope Scott will forget the missed benefits, too!


Molly Spiers, Head of Marketing at CoinCorner, told Cointelegraph, "I bought a postcard for a picture of my cats [...] for 0.009 BTC." The $ 270 postcard, sadly, was not enough for Spiers to hold it; ‘I lost them somewhere over the years - I would have put them proudly!


Fortunately, “there is no regrets,” as is the “good news.” Also, share a photo of the cats:



While "testing Bitcoin as a currency," Matthew Ward, a software developer for CoinCorner, told Cointelegraph that he "bought the Cities Skylines game back when it launched on Steam in March 2015 for 0.108 BTC. " You can be a judge of whether the graphics are worth the $ 3,000 price tag:



Finally, Didi Taihuttu, known as the father of the Bitcoin Family and sometimes a Bitcoin tattoo guy, spent 2.75 BTC on a Bitcoin miner in 2014. Taihuttu told Cointelegraph that "the strange part is that when BTC hit about $ 200, I stopped mining. BTC also started mining dogecoin (DOGE)." If you held BTC, you would have over $ 180,000.



Taihuttu also shared that during his trip as a Bitcoin Family, he broke up with more than 9 BTC ($ 270,000), which he described as "losing 9 BTC but getting an amazing adventure."


And for those who wondered what happened to the 10,000BTC Hanyecz used on pizzas, according to a Cointelegraph study, 5% of the total amount reached the richest purse, while "some of the money seemed to be gone" in failed crypto trading.


Hanyecz's richest fundraiser is one of the top 15 richest wallets in Bitcoin, accumulating more than 53,000 BTC. The amount spent or sent from the wallet is 0 BTC: Bitcoin guaranteed.
