A new celebration of the famous Bitcoin Pizza Day has given rise to some reflections.
When two pizzas were sold for 10,000 BTC back in 2010, hardly anyone took Bitcoin seriously and very few imagined the relevance it would have in the near future.
At that early stage, "inappropriate uses" of Bitcoin could easily occur, due to the novelty of the object and the ecosystem that was receiving it.
From today's perspective, the equivalent of $300 million was paid for those two pizzas.
This enormous revaluation of an asset in such a short period of time teaches us to value things differently. It teaches us to move away from the "fomos" that are generated, it teaches us the relative value of things and, above all, it shows us the great impact that the introduction of a revolutionary element can have on our ecosystem and our lives.
In 2010 very few people were betting on Bitcoin, something surreal and totally unknown to most. A decade later we are in the midst of a major financial revolution.
Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general are experiencing a moment of great boom that invites us to discover their full potential and continue to be part of history.
