Black Friday is upon us, the best time of the year to spend your hard earned money. While some of us will take advantage of the declining market to add some more coins to our portfolios, many will want to actually spend crypto. And what better time to do it than today?
Bitcoin Black Friday is listing and publishing the best bitcoin deals out there. If you are a merchant you can submit your deal and have a chance to sell your products for cryptocurrencies:
“While most consumers are flooding into supermarkets and retail stores, there’s a quiet revolution brewing in the corners of the internet. (...) Bitcoin Black Friday 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. This year, we're focused on quality merchants that care about the Bitcoin community.”
Due to the recent market crash, some in the crypto community have jokingly said that bitcoin has gone on sale just in time for Black Friday. Nigel Green, CEO of deVere Group and bitcoin evangelist, explained in a recent interview that the recent price crash has created a buyers’ market:
“Savvy investors understand that digital currencies are the future of money and, as such, they will be capitalising on the lower prices in order to build their portfolios and shore-up their positions. (...) Prices might fall further over the next few days, but we can expect a long-term upward trajectory for the crypto sector.”
Other Black Friday Specials
Besides the amazing deals listed on Bitcoin Black Friday, many other websites are offering their best deals. You can find discounts on crypto-themed clothes and other products on the WikiLeaks Shop, art on Cryptograffiti, and physical bitcoins on Denarium.
Many crypto exchanges are also offering Black Friday deals and bitcoin giveaways. CoinCorner is offering £20 in bitcoin to new customers that register and buy £100 worth of the cryptocurrency, while SimpleFX is offering traders a great deal by reducing the spread of every transaction by 50%.
Customers however are advised be cautious as many bitcoin giveaways turn out to be scams. Just yesterday, hackers were able to seize control of the email of crypto exchange Uphold and blast users with links to a bitcoin giveaway. The giveaway was disguised as a Black Friday promotion while the links were actually a phishing campaign, designed to fool investors out of their coins.
Finally, on a lighter note in the ongoing bear marker, BitPay has released a crypto themed song. But it's not just any crypto themed song, this masterpiece is inspired by the infamous Rebecca Black’s “Friday”.
