Papa John’s will commemorate the famous transaction by offering 10,000 slices of pizza to the first 50 customers in Jacksonville and all customers will have a chance to win a huge BTC-inspired pizza. Papa John’s isn’t the only one celebrating because Slice, the platform that connects pizzerias in the US, and an NFT project Rare Pizza are both giving 2,500 pizzas over 1 BTC’s worth of pies that are made by local pizzerias across the country.
Pizza Hut also started accepting BTC and allows Venezuelans to pay for BTC and other cryptocurrencies while the country is one of the biggest BTC users in the world because of fiat hyperinflation as a result of bad local policies and US Sanctions. Speaking of BTC adoption, many major companies across the world already like SkyBridge Capital and Microstrategy which are companies that added BTC to their balance sheets but smaller companies like pizzerias all joined in as well and put capital into the cryptocurrency.
Sam & Greg’s Pizzeria and Gelateria is one of the few businesses that invested in crypto about a year ago and the co-founder Greg Hathorn said that crypto and blockchain are the smartest use of the internet to this date which is why his company allocated $200,000 from balance sheets into BTC during the COVID-19 pandemic that caused major nosedives for the markets.
