4 1/2 years ago Laszlo paid 10,000,000,000 bits for two large pizzas. An hour ago I paid 48,500 bits for a steak with fries+salad.
Laszlo had to search for four days (and look across the globe) to find someone willig to accept his bitcoins. I could choose from 9 different restaurants online and had my order delivered barely 30 minutes later.
It’s also worth mentioning that I live in a pretty small town (somewhere in germany).
Using bitcoin, the order did cost about 0.40 EUR more, but that’s only because of credit card fees while (instantly!) buying back the bitcoin at circle.
The steak was mediocre at best, but that’s not bitcoin’s fault! 🙂
