Binance, the cryptocurrency exchange giant, is celebrating the thirteenth anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day, the historic day in 2010, when a purchase of two pizzas was made in return for 10,000 BTC.
To celebrate the day in crypto and the revolution it marks for the industry, Binance is tying up with members of the community to make their own pizza complete with their own ‘BTC’ toppings logo. Vloggers and influencers will be posting their creations on social media. There are many global celebrations happening including the birthplace of pizza, Naples, Italy, and continue with local pizzeria and pizza van takeovers in ten countries, including Brazil, Bahrain, Pakistan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina, and New Zealand.
The community is also invited to celebrate Pizza Day on social media and the Binance app. Participants who share their Binance-themed pizzas using #BinancePizza or complete tasks to collect all the Pizza Flavours on the Binance app have a chance to win the crypto equivalent of a year’s supply of pizza. Online celebrations will continue as Binance hosts a virtual live meet-up with the attendance of CZ on May 22 at 12:00 PM UTC, featuring discussions on the meaning of Bitcoin Pizza Day with prominent Binance Feed creators.

“Bitcoin Pizza Day is a testament to the power of community and the growing acceptance of BTC as part of our daily lives,” said Yi He, Binance co-founder and chief marketing officer. “At Binance, we believe in the importance of mass adoption, and we are committed to creating more and more use cases for crypto in everyday situations. As more people recognize the value and potential of blockchain and crypto, our community grows stronger, and we continue to build our industry.”
The global Pizza Day meet-ups will offer fun activities with the chance to win swag and rewards, and of course, free pizza. Events vary by city, for example in Naples, the first 500 users to register for the event will be able to claim free “Binance style” pizza and drinks and take part in a pizza-making contest for Binance prizes.
Bitcoin Pizza Day stands as a pivotal milestone for the crypto industry, signifying its remarkable exponential growth and paving the path for widespread adoption of digital currencies over the past 13 years.
