Monday marks the seven-year anniversary of Bitcoin Pizza Day – the moment a programmer named Laszlo Hanyecz spent 10,000 bitcoin on two Papa John's pizzas.

More important than the episode being widely recognized as the first transaction using the cryptocurrency is what it tells us about the bitcoin rally that saw it break through the $2,100 mark on Monday.

Price passed $4000, currently at $4200 so $100 would be about 150 million today. Crazy. Will the bubble burst.

wow, i'm kicking myself.   In 7 yrs I'm sure I have invested hundreds /no $ thousands into Lotteries.      If i would have just diversified my investments a little differently.

Whereas it is exciting, it should be noted that speculation is not an investment.
