The initiative commemorates the first purchase of goods made with the cryptocurrency in the world: two pizzas for 10 thousand bitcoins.
The person who made the purchase was Laszlo Hanyecz, one of the first adopters of the cryptocurrency in 2010, a few months after its launch.
The purchase, which was worth $41, is now valued at $389 million, according to the Bitcoin Pizza Index.
