A driver who held $5 in Bitcoin (BTC) as a tip for his pizza delivery services has reportedly resurfaced after seven years.
According to a post from Redditor btcbible, the Bitcoiner ordered a pizza on Dec. 28, 2013 and gave the delivery driver two options for his tip: a $5 bill, or 0.0069 BTC on a paper wallet. The value was roughly the same at the time, given the price of the crypto asset was $774.
However, the driver reportedly contacted btcbible this week for help on getting the funds into a hot wallet. With Bitcoin’s recent rise to a new all-time high of more than $58,000, the BTC is now worth roughly $400, an increase of more than 7,000% since the pizza was delivered hot.
“I let the pizza guy choose between $5 in fiat or BTC,” said btcbible. “Needless to say, he chose wisely. I’ve responded with instructions on how to import the private key via Electrum.”
