Anthony Pompliano (mostly known as "Pomp"), who is a VC investor, crypto podcaster and Bitcoiner, has taken to Twitter to announce the launch of a new national U.S. pizza brand called "Bitcoin Pizza."

"Bitcoin Pizza" to support local SME and BTC devs

The pilot project will be launched this weekend in 10 cities across the USA. These include Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Austin, New York and San Francisco.

Pizzas are to be ordered on the project's website, and by ordering from Bitcoin Pizza, users will be able to support both local pizzerias and Bitcoin developers.

Orders will be fulfilled by local shops and then the ordered pizzas will be delivered right to your door on the day and at the time you choose.

All the profits will be transferred to the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) Bitcoin developers' fund. The pizzas will be packed in special "Bitcoin boxes" created especially for the project.
