Bitcointalk is an internet message board founded in 2009 by the pseudonymous Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto to facilitate discussions about Bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrency. It became the meeting place for the fledgling blockchain industry and the location of the first bitcoin (BTC) purchase: 10,000 BTC for two pizzas. Bitcointalk is still active today, fostering community and discussion among 450,000+ developers, investors, miners, programmers, and enthusiasts.
