written by

Pizza Day Prague 2023 is a 2-day international conference marking the 13th anniversary of the first real-world Bitcoin payment. The conference takes place on May 20-21, 2023, exactly two days before the anniversary of the legendary transaction.

Hosted at paralelni polis, the event is subtitled pizza2pizza” as an homage to one of Bitcoins fundamental principles of peer-to-peer transfers.

“We believe that by using Bitcoin as intended, a peer-to-peer electronic cash system, we can create a more secure, efficient, and fair financial system.” says Mário Havel, a hacker, and researcher focused on making the crypto-ecosystem more efficient and anonymous, and the founder of Pizza Day Prague.

Both Pizza Day Prague stages will be honored by the presence of Bitcoin’s OGs and devs like Eric Wall, a cryptocurrency researcher, and investor who is well-known for his in-depth critiques and for exposing flaws in high-profile cryptocurrency projects; Calle, a Lightning developer working on several open-source projects in the BTC space, including LNbits and Cashu; Peter Todd, one of the most prolific Bitcoin Core contributors; or Tim Akinbo, a Bitcoin developer, owner of the first Bitcoin node in West Africa, and organizer of QalaAfrica.

About Pizza Day Prague

Pizza Day Prague aims to return to Bitcoin’s roots and original motivations as a tool for spreading crypto-anarchy, preserving the digital freedom of individuals and groups.

The conference celebrates financial independence and equal relationships without unsolicited third-party oversight. It is a celebration of the emancipation of individuals above the dictates of corporatist systems.

Bitcoin is a global phenomenon and in the nine years of its existence, Paralelní Polis has won the sympathy of many leading names in the domestic and international crypto-scene, who regularly talk at its now traditional Hackers Congress
Paralelní Polis.

About Paralelní Polis

Paralelní Polis is a non-governmental non-profit crypto think tank, which was founded in 2014 in Prague by the art activist group Ztohoven as the original hackerspace.

The mission of Paralelní Polis is to provide the technology and education that people need to participate in an independent society and to protect individual freedom. The vision of Paralelní Polis is a world where people have the opportunity to separate from the state and live in a free society.

About Bitcoin Pizza Day

Bitcoin Pizza Day is an annual celebration that takes place on May 22nd to commemorate the first real-world transaction made using Bitcoin.

On this day in 2010, a programmer named Laszlo Hanyecz purchased two pizzas for 10,000 BTC, which at the time was worth around $41. Today, those same bitcoins would be worth millions of dollars.

This event is considered a significant milestone in the history of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency as it demonstrated the potential of digital currencies to be used as a means of exchange for goods and services.
