Bitcoin Black Friday

Mark your calendars -- this holiday season is the first ever Bitcoin Black Friday, an online shopping and charitable giving extravaganza just for Bitcoin users. On November 29th, hundreds of merchants selling everything from airline tickets to unlocked smartphones to coffee to VPNs to underwear will offer special deals to anyone paying in Bitcoin. Visitors will also have the opportunity to donate bitcoins to a variety of worthy charities and nonprofits.

Bitcoin is an amazing new technology, but because it challenges established industries, it will face serious political opposition--especially in the U.S. where those industries are strongest. Bitcoin will only be safe once millions of people rely on it every day.

This holiday season, we need your help to protect Bitcoin and make November 29th go down in history as the first ever Bitcoin Black Friday!

Here’s how to participate:
1) Join the thunderclap to help spread the word!
2) If you sell stuff online, start accepting bitcoin and sign up to list your deal.
3) If you don’t have bitcoins yet, get some! It’s easy. We tell you how here.

Bitcoin Black Friday is being organized by Jon Holmquist and Fight for the Future, and is backed by a solid circle of Bitcoin believers.

  • Bitcoin Black Friday a massive success!
