Bitcoin Black Friday was started by Jon Holmquist in 2012 as a way to co-opt a mainstream celebration of consumerism and help Bitcoiners promote their technology of choice. By encouraging merchants to offer discounts on their goods and services when customers paid with BTC, the holiday became a showcase for Bitcoin as a payment system, a tool to encourage more businesses to adopt it and a way for HODLers to embrace the circular. To propel the Bitcoin economy.
The team behind it Bitcoin Magazine has relaunched Bitcoin Black Friday this year with a new website with dozens of discounts on everything from hardware wallets and VPNs to clothing and gambling services.
Bitcoin has come a long way as a payment technology since 2012. There are a variety of bitcoin-backed debit and credit cards, high-quality bitcoin payment processors and, of course, the Lightning Network, which has made bitcoin payments vastly more efficient. To showcase these advancements in the Bitcoin circular economy and help readers understand how to participate, our editorial team wanted to underline the importance that celebrations like these play in building an economy where bitcoin is the medium of exchange of choice.
