Bitcoin Pizza Day, celebrated annually on May 22, marks an important milestone in the history of cryptocurrency,  bringing Bitcoin enthusiasts worldwide together annually to celebrate this iconic moment.

To join in this, the Bitfinex African Community @BFXLeosAfrika, an African community that supports the Bitfinex exchange brand and works to lead a community with similar interests, came together to celebrate this historic event at Secret Garden, Abuja, Nigeria.

Back in 2010, when Bitcoin was still in its infancy, Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida-based programmer, made a groundbreaking purchase. He spent a staggering 10,000 Bitcoins to buy two pizzas from Papa John’s, setting a precedent for Bitcoin’s value as a medium of exchange. Little did he know that this transaction would become an integral part of Bitcoin’s legacy and inspire future generations of crypto enthusiasts.

This year’s celebration marks the 13th anniversary of an extraordinary event that changed the way we think about the world’s first digital currency and the crypto enthusiasts came together to remember this milestone; the festivity showcases the amazing journey of Bitcoin and its impact on the global financial world.

At the Bitfinex African Community event, the atmosphere was filled with excitement as speakers and attendees shared stories and insights about cryptocurrencies and how the Bitfinex exchange has enhanced their lives.

The event was graced by Faith Okafor Mbah, who shared more insights into the Bitcoin Pizza Day story and also her journey in the crypto space. She further spoke about promoting financial inclusion with crypto using Bitfinex as a case study.

On her part, the representative host of the Bitfinex African Community, Kerry Ngozi, spoke about Tether as a tool for financial inclusion and financial freedom.

She also explained that as the demand for decentralized and accessible financial solutions continues to grow, Tether has positioned itself as a key player in facilitating seamless transactions and empowering individuals to take control of their financial lives.

Despite the challenges and volatility that cryptocurrencies have faced, the celebration serves as a testament to the resilience and enduring appeal of the decentralized revolution.

Other highlights of the event were organized games in which prizes like Tether (USDt), souvenirs, and pizza boxes were won by the participants.

Bitfinex remains one of the leading and oldest trading platforms in the world. Bitfinex’s strategy provides unparalleled support, tools, and innovation for professional traders and liquidity providers worldwide.

The company also provides adequate support for those that are new in the crypto space by providing a weekly educational issue, The Bitfinex Alpha, put together by professional market analysts, that would help make better financial decisions.

Bitfinex also provides support to users through local communities all over the world and engages in various charity programs.

During the current bear market, Bitfinex has been one of the only exchanges that are keeping up with new token listings, community events, and regular giveaways.
