Bitcoin Black Friday

We all like discounts and sales, and no more so than on Black Friday, which is almost upon us (This Friday 23rd November.

What originally started in the US has now become an international occasion representing the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Retail outlets around the world open early to allow shoppers to take advantage of discounts and special offers on everything from clothing and electrical goods to cars and jewellery creating a ‘shopping buzz’ around the globe that pretty much all of us have taken part in one way or another!

The anticipated event was not something that the world of crypto was going to miss out on! Bitcoin Black Friday started back in 2012 in a bid to promote Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency community. The one day sale is the internet’s day for the ultimate consumer experience, offering the Bitcoin community a fun event to participate in while showing support for all those merchants that accept payment in Bitcoin. Just like the traditional high street Black Friday, Bitcoin Black Friday sees hundreds of retailers offering cryptocurrency users special offers on all kinds of goods to be paid for in Bitcoin.

Sites such as Spendabit lists products from over 400 different stores, here you can purchase anything from a designer watch and iPad to books, sportswear and electrical goods.
