Black Friday is the first day of the Christmas shopping season and retailers make numerous special offers to please their customers. We are presenting you crypto Black Friday.
First of all, Happy Thanksgiving y’all. Be thankful for your life, your family and, hopefully, your wallets. Hope you had a nice dinner and it prepared you for the Christmas holidays. However, today is Black Friday and even though it should remind us on the awful things done to the slaves in the U.S. back in time, it should remind us that, except this should never happen again, we could use this date to do something good – for someone, or for us (‘cause you have to love yourself, right?).
That is why we are presenting you – best of the best – Crypto Black Friday. And don’t worry. It doesn’t take you to sit in the tent on the cold (screw you Macy’s) but you can shop – all day from your couch while eating the rest of the pumpkin pie.
The first one in window number one is Ledger. Ledger here offers a beautiful 30% sitewide discount on its Nano S and Nano X hardware wallets and the rest of its product lineup. You have to hurry though because the deal runs only through December 2nd.
The second one with a similar offer is its competitor Trezor that is also offering 30% off using the promo code TRZR30.
In the third window, we have KeepKey’s amazing deal of only $5 crypto hardware wallet special for protecting yourself from cybercriminals.
Fourth is charting software TradingView, offering up to 60% off their Pro, Pro+ and Premium subscriptions. Don’t forget, you could earn some serious money if you get yourself to learn about technical analysis.
However, if you’re just a beginner or just want to learn, check out Amazon. Each book is listed at 20% off or more. We would recommend:
- Bitcoin Billionaires: A True Story of Genius, Betrayal, and Redemption
- Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond
- The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking
- Encyclopedia of Candlestick Charts
Or this author’s favorite: Don Tapscott & Alex Tapscott – The Blockchain Revolution
Let’s not forget the first major retailer who started accepting Bitcoin. Overstock.com holds a special place in the hearts of the crypto community and this year, you can save up to 70% on thousands of items for your home including kitchen gadgets, electronics, jewelry and watches, furniture, clothing, and more.
We also have NewEgg discounting thousands of items by as much as 90% or even more during its Black Friday. So, if you need a new computer, or some accessories – this is a place to go. NewEgg.com as well accepts Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash and also credit cards, Masterpass, and PayPal.
And, if you always wanted to have Bitcoin cuff-links (or socks) Kryptoez is a place to visit . Prices on their items are slashed by 60% and it accepts Bitcoin, DigiByte, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero, and Steem, as well as PayPal, credit cards, Google Pay, and Apple Pay.
If you are more of a romantic type, do not hesitate to bump the question with a beautiful ring by Reed Jewelers. She/he doesn’t have to know you bought it $300 dollar cheaper – with your own Bitcoin.
As we were saying previously. It is nice to do something good for others. That is why we would recommend supporting small businesses. You would be surprised how many of them accept Bitcoin or other cryptos. For example, there is the London-based book publisher Kiosk who accepts Bitcoin payments and runs its own full node via BTCPay.
However, if you find something in a store that doesn’t do crypto, do not worry. Thanks to mobile apps like Fold and Flexa allow users to spend digital assets in brick-and-mortar stores. Fold even offers you a credit card and Bitcoin payment options, both of which earn shoppers some small Bitcoin rewards.
The in-browser Lolli app also offers Bitcoin rewards from brands like Sephora, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s. Also, Chrome extension StormShop will offer cash-back rewards in the form of Ethereum-based stablecoin DAI.
However, founder of the Bitcoin Black Friday event, Jon Holmquist, wrote:
“After 7 years, and 6 successful events, I have fallen out of love with using bitcoin as a means of consumer payment.”
Sorry Jon, but we haven’t.
So, if you still haven’t decided, or you just want to buy something for yourself, you can buy crypto. The entire market had a little bit of a tumble two days ago, coinciding with the Thanksgiving week, so you can get assets 15% – 17% cheaper than just a week ago and more than 25% cheaper than at the beginning of November. Some altcoins are as much as 99% off their all-time high prices as well. At the time of writing, Bitcoin was $7,577 but if it’s too high of a price, why not consider some XRP ($0.23), Bitcoin Cash ($223.85), Litecoin ($48.52), EOS ($2.75) or good old Ethereum for only $154.62.
