Bitcoin Black Friday is just around the corner, and for most digital currency users, the event brings has many advantages.
The website bitcoinblackfriday.com states that BBF “is a one day event that brings together Bitcoin merchants and Bitcoin users. Merchants simply list their Bitcoin-exclusive deals, and users can check out all the deals in one place.” The site also mentions that this year, the focus is on “quality merchants that care about the Bitcoin community.”
Founded by digital currency entrepreneur Jon Holmquist, the event first rose to prominence about three years ago, and has grown heavily since then. The last two years have witnessed over 400 participants, and 2015 is projected to be even bigger. According to Coindesk:
“Bitcoin Black Friday has gained a lot of importance… Along with discounts and sales, this day brings in a lot of stress and headaches as everyone is frantic and worried about knowing the best and exclusive Bitcoin deals available out there… There is a great deal of traffic and rush, servers work extremely slow so having a platform where one can find out about all of the bitcoin merchants and discounts is a life saver. BitcoinBlackFriday.com is that lifesaver with the sole purpose of providing you with information about the numerous and abundant deals and discounts from all Bitcoin merchants with plans for Bitcoin Black Friday 2015.”
And that’s just what we can expect… A week of stressful headaches followed by all the information we need to make the event fun and survivable. Starting today, those signed up receive emails regarding early-planned Bitcoin Black Friday offers, followed by a special guide to help out on November 22nd. A second serving of officers is sent on the 24th, and the next day sees users receiving secret tips and tricks to achieve greater success throughout the event. The last wave of offers is sent out on the 26th, while the full list of bitcoin merchants is made available on the 27th, the official day of the event.
What’s the added bonus of Bitcoin Black Friday? It helps raise bitcoin awareness. The event entices merchants to accept bitcoin as a form of payment, prompting regular shoppers (most of whom probably know little about digital currency) to ask themselves, “What’s that?” Upon further research, users are likely to witness the number of deals they can get when paying with a few binary numbers, rather than cash or their Visa cards. Users would then likely look into bitcoin and cryptocurrency for themselves, allowing them to take advantage not only of the event’s discounts, but of everything digital currency has to offer all the time.
