On this day in 2009, Hal Finney became the first person to receive a Bitcoin transaction, as Satoshi sent him 10 BTC in block 170
The transaction is visble here on Blockstream's explorer: https://blockstream.info/block/00000000d1145790a8694403d4063f323d499e655c83426834d4ce2f8dd4a2ee
That day, he also posted one of the most famous Bitcoin tweets, confirming that he was 'Running bitcoin'
Rest in peace, Hal ✌️
