Explore Laszlo Hanyecz's Net Worth in 2021: Complete Report of The Infamous Pizza Guy's Wealth Here
If there was a contest for the unluckiest man in the world, then Laszlo Hanyecz will probably take the runner-up's position if not the winner's. Those interested in cryptocurrency and its investors are well aware of the name. He is the infamous trailblazer of the first Bitcoin (digital currency) commercial transactions.
Here's why you should know about him; Laszlo was one of the early contributors of the digital currency forum when the larger section remotely knew about the concept; the story of his first transaction is now told worldwide like folklore, many probably pitying the guy for his haphazard decision, but guess what, Hanyecz says he doesn't regret it a bit. Let's see what life looks like for Laszlo now and how much he is worth in 2021.
What isHanyecz's Net Worth, and How Much Could've it Been?
Laszlo is an ordinary software programmer from Florida, he is no celebrity, but he made history in Bitcoin's record eleven years ago. His job doesn't guarantee premium pay. Computer programmers in the USA earn an average salary of $86,550, and the amount at max can go upto six-figure. Given Hanyecz'scommoner stature, his verified Net Worth is still under review, but many think it can't be more than 100k.

But his current net worth isn't what most are concerned about. Instead, people are curious about how much it could've been. Hanyecz's net worth today could've been $306 million had he not traded his 10,000 Bitcoins, which was valued at €30 then for mere two pizzas.
On March 22, 2010, a 19 years old California student Jeremy Sturdivant saw a weird request on the Bitcoin chat forum. It was Hanyecz casually offering his then-lowly 10,000 bitcoins for two Papa Jones's pizzas. Sturdivant complied with the offer and used the coins as a cover expense reportedly. Whereas Sturdivant expresses regret over not holding onto the Bitcoin longer, Hanyecz feels otherwise.
I've No Regrets: Laszlo Hanyecz!
"It wasn't like bitcoins had any value back then, so the idea of trading them for a pizza was incredibly cool' said Hanyecz in his interview with The Times in 2013 as the value of the cryptocurrency rose steadily. The programmer rose to infamy in 2017 when the value of Bitcoins started hitting the sky.
Hanyecz, 39, maybe quoting he has no regret just for the sake of it, but the world believes he felt the burnt too like many who played no part but felt the pain. He told Bitcoin Magazine in 2019 that if it weren't him, somebody else would've done it, so he has no regret.
Sturdivant, who went down in history as another unlucky guy, said, "It is crazy to think anyone having that much bitcoin today. If I had treated as an investment, I might have held on a bit longer." Whatever their opinions are, the duo will be remembered every year on Bitcoin Pizza Day, and ill-fate will be gossiped about by the world.
Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day!
Built by Satoshi Nakamoto, who aimed to create a rival financial system with Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency is now valued at $35,771 and is estimated to reach $100,000 in few years. Thanx to Laszlo and Jeremy's iconic feat; 22 May is now celebrated as a cryptocurrency holiday for the global market.

The Bitcoin community commemorated the 11 anniversary of the day by noting how much Hanyecz's papa jones's pizza would cost today. Laszlo's decade-back purchase now acts as a milestone for Bitcoin, and the world's most expensive pizza keeps breaking its record every year.
