Let’s find out who we must thank for these 24 hours of great discounts and bargain purchases. Bitcoin Black Friday was founded by Jon Holmquist in 2012. He admits to be a great fan of bitcoin. He has been involved in crypto industry since 2011.
And in 2012 he decided to organize Bitcoin Black Friday and teamed up with several merchants who agreed to participate in the event. We must note that the sale has become much more popular since that time.
In 2013 Bitcoin Black Friday was called the “most popular day in the history of Bitcoin commerce.” BitPay broke records, the website BitcoinBlackFriday.com brought in 100,000 unique visitors. In 2014 BitPay informed about an 82% increase in the number of merchants who completed transactions compared to last year.
According to the U.S. National Retail Federation, the total number of people participated in BBF amounted to 133.7 million, a decline of 5.2% from 2013. Remarkably, no huge increase in digital currency sales was registered as no statistics on total bitcoin transactions was presented.
