Celebrating Scotland’s most expensive pizza!
Last week Bobath Scotland celebrated one of our more unusual donations – proceeds from an online pizza auction using Scotcoin cryptocurrency.
On 22 May, Glasgow business Rockvilla.pizza marked global Bitcoin Pizza Day by holding their own Scotcoin Pizza Day.
Bitcoin Pizza Day 2019 is the ninth anniversary of the first Bitcoin transaction, in which a Florida man paid for two pizzas with the cryptocurrency. The day has become part of folklore, not because of the transaction, but more the price: the man in question paid 10,000 Bitcoins for two pizzas, which today is worth over $70 million.
Rockvilla.pizza ran their own international online auction of the Scotcoin.pizza, with a promise to deliver a pizza to the winning bidder, wherever they were in the world.
Established in 2013, Scotcoin is one of the first country related crypto-currencies on the market, and has over 3000 holders globally.
Perhaps luckily for Rockvilla.pizza, the pizza was won by Paul McLeary from Broxburn (pictured top, right)!
We were delighted that Rockvilla.pizza donated all the proceeds from the auction to Bobath Scotland.
Paul came to the Bobath centre last week, along with representatives from Rockvilla.pizza and the Scotcoin Project, to meet with us and celebrate with some delicious pizzas.
We would like to thank Rockvilla.pizza, Scotcoin and Paul for their generosity, and pizzas!
