There are probably more lists of facts about Bitcoin than there are facts about Bitcoin. Some of the lists are really interesting. Others not so much. We have compiled the best 101 facts about Bitcoin into one handy infographic in order to make them easier to read and enjoy.
One of the most frequently-quoted facts about Bitcoin concerns Laszlo Hanyecz – a programmer from Florida who, on 22nd May 2010, paid 10,000 Bitcoin for two Papa John´s pizzas. The transaction – worth about $30 at the time – is the first recorded cryptocurrency purchase for a physical product, and consequently, the event appears in nearly every list of Bitcoin facts.
Although the event is noteworthy – indeed, 22nd May is now known in some circles as Bitcoin Pizza Day – there are plenty more interesting facts that don´t always get the attention they deserve. We have compiled a list of the best 101 Bitcoin facts to highlight some other noteworthy events and to provide readers with a little more insight into the popularity of the world´s leading cryptocurrency.
Naturally, as our website has a focus towards online casinos, we have weighted some of our infographic towards Bitcoin casinos. These are not necessarily Bitcoin-exclusive casinos inasmuch as games are played and prizes paid in cryptocurrency, but casinos at which players can deposit and withdraw in Bitcoin in order to take advantage of quicker and almost fee-free transactions.
