Domino’s offers €100,000 in bitcoin for one lucky pizza lover
Domino’s France is running a competition to giveaway €100,000 ($110,000) to celebrate its 30th birthday. And the winner will be able to redeem their winnings in either fiat money or Bitcoin. The competition will run from September 4 to October 6. Unsurprisingly, potential winners have to buy pizzas from Domino’s, then register their purchases online for a shot at the prize draw.
But why Bitcoin and pizza? Well, the two have history. In May 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz paid 10,000 bitcoins, worth $41 at the time, for the delivery of two Papa John's pizzas. At today’s price, those two pizzas are worth over $100 million. This would later become known as Bitcoin pizza day.
