Black Friday–generally considered the busiest day of the Christmas shopping season–is fast approaching. Bitcoin Discounts is piggybacking off of the multiple-year successful “Bitcoin Black Friday” event to help bitcoin-friendly merchants advertise their deals to the bitcoin community and customers find stores that plan to offer Black Friday bitcoin deals.

Editor’s Note: The “Bitcoin Black Friday” that most Bitcoiners are familiar with from the years past is brought to you by Bitcoin Black Friday, not Bitcoin Discounts.

Find Black Friday Bitcoin Deals

In the United States, the day after Thanksgiving–dubbed Black Friday–serves as the unofficial beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Retailers generally offer steep discounts on the year’s most coveted gifts, and discount shoppers come out in droves to claim the limited-time offers. This year, Bitcoin Discounts wants to make bitcoin a part of the Christmas shopping conversation by launching yet another website dedicated to “Bitcoin Black Friday.”

Bitcoin Black Friday will occur on November 28– the same day as the ordinary shopping event. Any bitcoin-friendly merchant can advertise their deals on Bitcoin Discounts for free, or they can bid a minimum of .2 bitcoins (.5 for a larger slot) for premium ad placement. However, until November 15 businesses can obtain a premium ad for free. Bitcoin Discounts will use a portion of ad revenue to market Bitcoin Black Friday to the bitcoin community.

Post-Bitcoin Black Friday Plans

Bitcoin Discounts launched in time for Black Friday, but the site will continue to operate once the shopping season has passed. Once the Black Friday bitcoin edition is taken down on December 5, Bitcoin Discounts will still publish its website and newsletter to connect bitcoin-friendly merchants to customers who want to pay with cryptocurrency.
