Over the years of the existence of the crypto community, not only millions of participants have appeared in it, but also their own traditions. One of them is May 22nd, the day the community celebrates the 11th anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day.
On May 22nd, 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 Bitcoins (then about 40), which was a landmark event for the industry and the first pizzas purchased with cryptocurrency. Now one can sympathize with Hanyecz. Not only does everyone remember very well the long-standing mistake of the programmer, at a cost of almost 400 million dollars, but they also “celebrate” it every year.
In fact, this day was more likely to become a landmark event and a small step towards the adoption of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment around the world. In honor of Bitcoin Pizza Day, you can participate in giveaways and contests from several large crypto exchanges at once.
The "distribution of the day" can rightfully be called the "royal" airdrop from the Huobi exchange. Its total prize pool is $22,000, $5220 of which will go to only one lucky person. To do this, you need to subscribe to the accounts specified in the Huobi tweet, retweet the entry, and tag five friends in the comments.
Coingecko decided to support users not with tokens, but with another form of reward. The service invites them to get one of the "branded" NFTs. All you need to do is have 600 "candies" to exchange for a non-fungible token. All Coingecko account holders can receive sweets by logging into the site every day.

Anthony Pompliano could not avoid such a holiday, especially against the background of the opening of his own brand the online pizzeria Bitcoin Pizza. He stated that on this day the number of pizzas to order will be limited to 10,000 boxes. One box for every Bitcoin spent by Heinitz.
