LAS VEGAS, May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Ballet today announced a new physical cryptocurrency collectible — the REAL Pizza wallet.
The REAL Pizza wallet is a stainless steel cold wallet with a design that commemorates Bitcoin Pizza Day.
On May 22, 2010, now known as Bitcoin Pizza Day, an early cryptocurrency enthusiast conducted the first documented purchase of a tangible object using cryptocurrency.
On that day, Laszlo Hanyecz persuaded another cryptocurrency aficionado, Jeremy Sturdivant, to accept 10,000 bitcoins in exchange for two large pizzas. At the time, 10,000 bitcoins were worth $41. That amount of bitcoin is now worth $94 million.
Ballet’s REAL Pizza wallet pays tribute to the tenth anniversary of this sale with a pizza-inspired design. Like Hanyecz’s purchase, the REAL Pizza wallets are sold in pairs.
“Ballet’s new REAL Pizza wallet marks bitcoin’s uptrending history with a stylish and durable collectible that has a celebratory design,” said Ballet founder and CEO Bobby Lee. “We hope the community finds the limited-edition REAL Pizza wallet a unique expression of the exciting progress bitcoin has made over the past 10 years.”
Lee also mentioned that Ballet has already found success as the continuation to BTCC Mint, BTCC’s physical bitcoin brand, which, over its three years of business, sold physical bitcoins worth more than $60 million dollars in today’s prices.
Ballet raised more than $3 million in seed round financing in 2019 led by Ribbit Capital—a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm that has invested in Coinbase, Revolut, Robinhood, Xapo, and many other early stage fintech companies. It was founded in September 2019.
