A Small $5 Tip in Bitcoin has Turned Lucky for Pizza Delivery-Man
As Bitcoin (BTC) continues to gain surge and rally with respect to all its factors, more and more interesting stories keep emerging around the asset. Just recently, another very interesting story has emerged that revolves around a pizza delivery guy and a $5 tip.
The pizza delivery guy has revealed that the $5 tip he received from one of the customers was in the form of Bitcoin (BTC). By now you must be thinking that it is just ordinary if the person ended up receiving a $5 tip in BTC.
However, this is where it gets interesting because the tip that the person received was not from this year. The pizza delivery-man has emerged after 7 years when he had received the $5 tip in BTC from one of the customers.
This news is currently getting a lot of views and was first posted on the Reddit platform. It is one of the Redditors going by the name “btcbible”, who has shared the story of the tip. According to the Redditor, he had ordered a pizza, which was back on December 28, 2013.
When the delivery-man showed up with the pizza, the bitcoiner asked him how he wanted his tip. The Redditor revealed that he gave the delivery-man two options. The first option was that he was going to give him a $5 bill and the second option was that was going to give him 0.0069 BTC in the form of a paper wallet.
The Redditor stated that the value of 0.0069 BTC at that time was around $5 because, at that time, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) was around $774 per BTC.
The Redditor informed the social media community that he was recently contacted by the same delivery-man. The delivery-man asked for the Bitcoiner’s help because he did not know how to manage the tip he had received from him back in 2013.
He wanted the Bitcoiner to help him out and guide him into transferring the BTC from the paper wallet to the hot wallet. As the price of Bitcoin (BTC) is constantly on the rise, the same amount of 0.0069 BTC is now around $400. From $5 back in 2013 and all the way up to $400 in 2021, it is a 4000% increase in the value of BTC.
According to the Bitcoiner, the pizza-man turned out to be much wiser than many investors who are still skeptical about investing in Bitcoin (BTC). As per him, the most surprising thing about the pizza-man is that he kept the paper wallet with him for all these years. He kept it safe and even though it is now $400, he is still planning on keeping it into a hot wallet.
