Bitcoin Black Friday was originally created to prove that bitcoin was not primarily used to purchase drugs. Over the years that false assumption has been proven untrue. Now with a myriad of cryptocurrencies in the marketplace, thousands of companies being started around the aspect of digital currencies, and a Bitcoin price of well over $8000, people have noticed that Bitcoin and blockchain technology is more important than just as a means of purchase… For whatever you purchase.
“The last year has seen a lot of drama, a lot of pain, and a lot of conflict in the Bitcoin community.” Bitcoin Black Friday Founder Jon Holmquist said, “I want to see that conflict end. I want to see every community that believes in whatever aspect of cryptocurrency expend their collective effort to grow their space and not to tear each other apart.”
For the first time, in many years, Bitcoin Black Friday will be allowing merchants accepting any cryptocurrency to participate.
Bitcoin Black Friday is simply an event where Bitcoin merchants list deals and coupons for Black Friday, which this year is on November 24th. It was started in 2012 and has had five previously successful events each year on Black Friday. It is entirely free for merchants to participate and list their deals, simply visit http://bitcoinblackfriday.com/merchant to participate as a merchant.

“One day a year the entire crypto community can get together and celebrate what Satoshi wrote down in a whitepaper long ago.” Bitcoin Black Friday Founder Jon Holmquist said, “‘A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash’ with the added benefit of getting presents in time for the holiday.. For a discount, of course!”
The wide range of merchants participating every year ensures that visitors can buy all sorts of things with Bitcoin including cryptocurrency hardware wallets, VPNs, t-shirts, honey, art, soap, sunglasses, and books.
One notable merchant this year is Ledger, offering a 21% discount on their popular hardware wallet.
More and more people around the world are turning to cryptocurrency and the blockchain as an exciting, secure, and innovative online currency. Bitcoin Black Friday will continue to rally the growing Bitcoin community and help merchants connect to a new vibrant and global market.
