Turns out, there are all sorts of things one can pay for with their crypto, with options increasing each holiday season. Admittedly, we’re still far from being able to buy absolutely all we need/want, but we’re definitely closer than ever.
Thursday, November 28 is Thanksgiving in the United States, and this holiday is followed by one of the largest shopping phenomena, called Black Friday. It’s the first day of the Christmas shopping season, and retailers make numerous special offers to please their customers, who usually make some very good deals on this day. Pretty much anything can be purchased for a lower price – but in fiat.
We were wondering what the Thanksgiving / Black Friday season is offering to those wanting to pay with their hard-earned and/or hard-hodled crypto. “I have decided not to continue running the Bitcoin Black Friday event,” said founder Jon Holmquist in a statement. “After 7 years, and 6 successful events, I have fallen out of love with using bitcoin as a means of consumer payment.” And that marked the end of one of the best-known events in the Cryptoworld, but worry not, as there’s an abundance of other events waiting for your crypto.
Crypto wallets and charts
There are various ways that crypto-wallet-related businesses and apps enable you to do your Thanksgiving / Black Friday shopping. A major crypto wallet-maker, Ledger, has a 30% off sitewide sale, announcing that “it’s Black Friday all week.” The promotion is live from November 25 to December 2, for Nano X, Nano S, Backup Pack and OTG Kit bought through the site. Furthermore, another major wallet, Trezor, also has a special offer of 30% off with a promocode from November 26 to December 3, with free shipping to EU and the U.S.
But if you need different kind of tools, for two more days, TradingView, a web-based charting package and trading social network, offers 40-60% on its Pro, Pro+ and Premium plans.
