No doubt, Black Friday has become the biggest shopping event of the calendar year, with retailers offering massive discounts on various groups of products to mark the beginning of the Christmas gift-buying season and to persuade customers to spend their money faster. In recent years, Bitcoin-accepting merchants have also jumped on the bandwagon so all cryptocurrency enthusiasts have the chance to hunt for disounted goods. So what can you buy with digital coins this Black Friday and where are the best festive deals?
Bitcoin Black Friday bonanza
The first place to start your online shopping is BitcoinBlackFriday.com aimed to direct cryptocurrency enthusiasts to hundreds of merchants offering Bitcoin-exclusive deals and lucrative discounts. Founded by digital currency entrepreneur Jon Holmquist in 2012 to promote BTC and prove that digital coins could be used to buy ordinary things, Bitcoin Black Friday is an online marketplace that is open one day only – this year, on November 25th.
BitcoinBlackFriday.com doesn’t sell goods directly, it serves as an advertisement platform that aggregates hundreds of special BTC-funded deals and redirects your clicks to the necessary store. You can browse through a variety of products and services, from gift cards and jewelry to personal electronics and hosting services. However, beware: last year scammers created a similar domain with an .info extension and fooled a lot of people, and they may try to create new phishing sites this year.
