Will we have bitcoin Black Friday this year ?

Last year was embarrassing. Now that we have Purse.io, Foldapp, more mature OB, improved infrastructure, better publicity, maybe it's the time to redeem ourselves.

For those who don't know, Gyft.com & eGifter.com sell gift cards online (Amazon, iTunes, BedBathBeyond, etc., like you see in the revolving rack at the corner convenience store). Both services accept BitcoinCash (via Bitpay). Instead of a plastic card, they send you a "virtual" card (an activation code). So you can buy stuff from all the stores above with BCH (& then replace your BCH so you don't later feel like you spent $500 on diapers :)
I scraped and massaged the lists from both services for you because I find it easier to refer to than browsing their sites that make you scroll through logos instead.
Many of the retailers are found on both services. Many are unique to one. The superset is probably about 300 (plus thousands of local restaurants that participate with Uber Eats).
There's a lot more than Restaurants, Starbucks & Playstore! You'll find Uber, airlines (Southwest, American, Delta), Hotels.com, XBOX, Playstation, Dell, Microsoft Office, Hulu, Ebay, Wine.com, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, CVS Pharmacy, Marshalls, Panera, Nordstrom Rack, Nike, Adidas, Zappo, Foot Locker... You can literally live on BCH now (if only there were a way to pay utilities and rent/mortgage).
You can have a super smooth experience buying a card while queuing for the register. When you tap to pay in BitcoinCash (or BTC) from the Gyft app, android prompts you to launch your wallet! The amount, fee, and receiving address is already filled in. Simply take a look to confirm and then slide to pay. In seconds (before the next register is open) the new gift card is in your Gyft app "wallet" and ready to be scanned by the cashier. You can also regift/send the gift card to a friend instead of activating/revealing the card's code.
Note that Uber credit is how you pay for Uber Eats, so an Uber gift card can not only get you around town but also bring food to your door from restaurants in your neighborhood.
Feel free to paste the lists into the weekly/monthly or any BCH updates, or to categorize it (i should have but I don't know them all). It's not my data obviously. I don't know how often the two services update the lists.
(Not sure which are limited to regions. I can confirm that Uber gift card was credited when pasted in the Uber app, in Japan, but wasn't usable for rides in Japan. The balance was perfectly usable later, in USA.)

I've been here for a while. Here's my 2 bitcent if anyone wants to hear it.

First, this is not the only massive drop in the bitcoin price. I'm sure many of you know this, but I have no doubt a good number don't know. When I first got into bitcoin, I admit wholeheartedly, I saw the potential and the price and I bought at a bad time, when I had no idea what the hell I was doing. Lost a bunch of money from $20 to $2.
However, I didn't freak out and I used the opportunity to learn as much as I could. Bitcoin was still fascinating and I didn't bail just because I had poor timing. I decided to look at my savings in terms of Bitcoin and NOT dollars, then like a savings account I just kept buying when I had the money available and I ignored (well, I tried to ignore) the price.
I'm going to tell you why I think it moves like it does, and more importantly I think it actually has to. The game of Bitcoin is all about infrastructure. The Bitcoin Protocol can actually only do a single thing... move bitcoin. However, with businesses, people, developers, entrepreneurs, investors, and so on, those bitcoins can be used to facilitate an assload of other things. With a large and robust infrastructure around it, Bitcoin has an astounding number of applications. The price can move very quickly, the infrastructure can't.
Example Scenario: Coinbase - During these price booms the Coinbase team is working on keeping up with orders, a tsunami of new customers, server space/bandwidth, verifications, KYC regulations, and of course, insane volume. Seriously, they are probably the most stressed people on planet Earth. Think Black Friday for 4 weeks straight except sales and new problems roll in 24 hours a day. When the crash happens and the price settles out is when they finally get a breather to find real solutions to all the new problems they discovered (and put band-aids on) during the boom. They hire new employees and expand the customer service department. They get a new manager with more experience, and reinvest the profits made from the higher post-crash price. All of this takes time, but when a majority of the Bitcoin space has readjusted, expanded their services, and added more Gyft cards to their roster ;) the interest comes back. Bitcoin becomes not only a solution to more problems, but more importantly can now sustain and service more customers. (no sex jokes please)
When these booms happen, the market is testing the limits of what is currently possible with their expectations of what should be possible. When that limit is found, the price corrects. It is very similar to how an animal or plant species finds its equilibrium population size when introduced into a new environment. This is the natural motion of a small organism that has massive growth potential.
Long story short, don't listen to everyone saying the subreddit has gone to shit (new people = inexperienced perspectives), don't listen to the people saying bitcoin is dead (seriously, you don't want to be remembered as that guy on the 4th crash, lol), dont listen to the "to the moon" guys or the complete naysayers, and please god don't kill yourself because you lost money, lmao. Bitcoin can only be worth whats its infrastructure can handle. There are many massive improvements and new features to come. we have a Looooooooonnnnnnggggg road ahead of us. To many who have been here as long as I have, I'm sure most still cant believe its on the fucking news!
Baby steps fellas, baby steps.

Yesterday, I gave my friend $30 in bitcoin. She had no clue what to use it on.

My advice was to read a bit about bitcoin, then either spend it on black friday, or save it. It felt really good to get her interested in bitcoin though. It might have been cooler if there was an Bitcoin ATM in my city or something tangible to demonstrate how to use it rather than third party sites like Gyft.

I became committed after my last post, now what?

I wrote a short post not too long ago about my history in Bitcoin as a young kid, to not owning any after not making the life changing decision I said I would at the time!
I have now invested a significant chunk of money, as a student, which has left me being involved in a variety of tracks. I started purchasing Bitcoins through Circle, so as to avoid the commission coinbase and a majority of the ATM's seem to charge. I then moved to coinbase, using their vault, which seems to be one of the safer online ways to store Bitcoin.
Beyond this, I have made some smaller investments into BTCjam, which apart from its earlier fees, has been nothing but a good experience for me. For those of you who don't know, BTCjam is another step to removing banks from the equation entirely. They act as a middle man to create opportunities for Peer to Peer lending of Bitcoin, offering an interest rate for the investors.
Now I have accrued a few coins, what now? We have companies like Newegg, who offer a poor collection of items for Bitcoin black Friday, and others like Gyft, who just seem to be another exchange, just into Gift Cards instead. What do we really need to see happen for Bitcoin to become not only mainstream, but important for everyone.
Off point here, but I am currently sitting in a hotel room, watching two of my roommates 'roll dice' gambling with money. This is something which I don't think Bitcoin will be able to compete with, as the transfer of fiat money, from hand to hand, is always instant and easy. What do you guys think?

Gyft Took my .13338 BTC - No gift card and no customer service response...

I hate to do this, but I wanted to share my awful Gyft experience and see if anyone had any advice on how to proceed.
Yesterday at 12:00AM I went over to Gamestop and wanted to buy a gift card with the Bitcoin I have. I used the Gyft app and paid .133 BTC for a $100 Gamestop gift card while I was in the store. I was hoping it would go through immediately so I spend it in the store. I waited for ~15 Minutes for the card to go through, and it never came.
I decided to just pay cash and get something else at Gamestop on Black Friday.
It's now been 30 Hours and there is no gift card. There are no pending transactions in my Gyft History, but the payment has 158 Confirmations and it clearly went through. Gyft has not responded to my support ticket, and I have absolutely no idea what to do.
Hash of transaction: 07e5c53f18e66504390aecbb6de56e47bfe0b351d189848dfd6768b472ee7676
Any advice on how to proceed?

Bitcoin Black Friday:Warning about other sites email

"Hey folks, normally we do not send out more emails but a number of users have fell victim to a scam site that was promoted heavily on a competing Bitcoin Black Friday site.
Employees of Gyft reached out to me and wanted me to warn everyone to verify if that if they are doing any holiday shopping that they are actually on gyft.com. Additionally their actual deal is 5% back on all bitcoin purchases, not 25%.
I've personally verified all of the deals listed on BitcoinBlackFriday.com to not be phishing sites. If you did all of your shopping through us don't worry about this email! It is only if you visited Gyft through a competing site.
Thanks for the great turn out this year, I hope you guys got some awesome gifts for Christmas! If you haven't gotten a chance to look at all the deals, they're all live on http://bitcoinblackfriday.com

Starbucks App Goes Bitcoin With iPayYou Integration

US Bitcoin payment gateway iPayYou has announced direct Starbucks integration for Bitcoin users.
Customers using the Starbucks mobile app can now use iPayYou to purchase items directly using Bitcoin with the automated conversion of funds to USD.
The tool, dubbed ‘Bitcoin Direct to Starbucks,’ is an extension of the startup’s Black Friday release of Starbucks gift cards for Bitcoin, along with gift cards for other major retailers.
CEO: Starbucks integration ‘no-brainer’
IPayYou Founder and CEO Gene Kavner said in a press release:
“Integrating with Starbucks was a no-brainer, as the company currently boasts 24,000 stores and with over one mln customers using the Starbucks Mobile Order and Pay program per month.”
The concept of using Bitcoins to purchase Starbucks coffee is by no means a new one. As early as 2014, dedicated channels had been set up to facilitate Bitcoin’s spread through hipsterism and early morning commuters, with outfits like Gyft among the first to tap into the market.
While coffee has since taken a back seat as a Bitcoin entry point, competition is still fiercely focussing on ease of use and convenience.
IPayYou does not require bulk purchases in the form of gift cards or other lump sum transactions - users need only transfer the amount of Bitcoin necessary for their specific bill total. The wallet then converts the payment to USD and credits their Starbucks mobile app balance with the equivalent amount.
“After you initiate the transactions, your funds will be ready in seconds,” Kavner continued.
“We want to put Bitcoin in the hands of everyone; our goal is a future where Bitcoin is the default currency. The best way to get there is to give consumers the ability to incorporate this new form of currency into their everyday lives.”
US consumers choose Bitcoin
The US, meanwhile, remains the major audience using crypto to buy consumer products. While full figures are difficult to source due to the prevalence of companies now operating in the space, Purse.io recently confirmed that the US was its number one market for its Amazon discount purchasing feature.
Kavner is himself an ex-Amazon executive, with iPayYou likely to increase an already competitive market since its launch earlier this year.

Gyft is the Bitcoin consumer's only good app.

On Friday, Barry Silbert tweeted his "wish list" of the top five companies he hoped would soon accept bitcoin, and asked his followers which merchants were in their top five. Some of the most popular responses were Amazon, Target, Whole Foods, and Zappos, which ironically are all companies that work with Gyft, the mobile gift card company that is probably the industry's most crucial and useful consumer bitcoin app.
One of bitcoin's biggest challenges is its lack of clear consumer use cases today. Unless you are a crypto-anarchist who is willfully "opting out" of the traditional banking / credit system, a privacy nut, a black market consumer, a bitcoin paper millionaire who spends bitcoin as a diversification strategy, or a prolific micro-tipper, you are better off using a debit or credit card for your day to day commerce. Said another way, bitcoin simply doesn't make sense for 99% of consumers.
I saw this first hand last week when I paid for dinner at a bitcoin-friendly sushi restaurant in my neighborhood. I transferred the $72.88 due through the merchant's BitPay account with bitcoin from a Coinbase wallet that appeared to be worth $73.24. Sure, that $0.36 "surcharge" might only be a half percent, but when you add it to the 1% cash back I was foregoing (2-3% for some credit cards that have better restaurant rewards), the merchant's bitcoin savings were simply additional costs incurred by me. I was spending bitcoin that had appreciated 30% in the past week and it annoyed me; how would consumers interested in a more stable bitcoin feel about that hidden fee?
Of course, I was at one of the few restaurants in my city that accepts bitcoin period. Forbes' Kashmir Hill demonstrated (for the second year in a row) how difficult it still is for any bitcoin enthusiast to live life without cash or credit cards. Hill's week using nothing but bitcoin in San Francisco showcased how there are not yet any reliable transportation vendors, point of sale systems or ATMs to make life on bitcoin truly viable. Instead, she spent much of her first post praising the existence of Gyft and its role as the bitcoin consumer's bridge to the non-speculative investment (aka "real") world where bitcoin can be used.
Gyft has, in fact, solved many of the early consumer use case problems for bitcoin. For starters, the company's mobile app has not been banned by Apple, making it usable for the millions of iOS faithful who might not exchange their iPhone simply to dabble with a new payment technology. Gyft also offers a 3% credit on bitcoin purchases, passing the cost savings back to the consumer and ensuring that I'll never see a surcharge for using bitcoin through Gyft as I will at my sushi restaurant. Finally, Hill outlined the life-saving utility of Gyft during her week-long experiment - gift cards to CVS, ride-sharing service Lyft, Fandango, etc. - that stems from its partnerships with over 200 retailers.
Hill said it best: "Gyft is a very easy way to convert Bitcoin into usable money — without ever actually turning it into cash and paying the 1% fee charged by exchangers like Coinbase and Bitpay. Gyft absorbs that conversion fee for consumers, and at a lower rate due to its volume."
Are there any other consumer applications that even come close to encouraging greater consumer adoption of bitcoin?

Bitcoin Xmas Presents: Suggestions?

I want to give some family meters bitcoin as an Xmas gift. How do you all suggest I get it done? USB stick with Multibit, a wallet, and instructions? Gyft or Snapcard? I haven't used these before. Do they keep the money denominated in BTC until it is spent? I'm open to all suggestions. Happy Black Friday and soon to be Christmas.

Who says people don't spend bitcoins?

It's almost black friday and bitcoins just blew past 1000$.
I've just blown a tenth of my stash on electronics, gifts, clothes and a brand new high-powered self-built desktop which I plan to run as a full bitcoin node. And of course the mandatory yearly order of alpaca socks. PSA :- if you haven't got alpaca socks yet, you should. They're beyond awesome.
Mostly through gift cards from gyft except for the desktop parts... damn you newegg. Take my bitcoins already.
It could go higher tomorrow but some shiny new stuff today is worth more than pieces of paper tomorrow. Plus at this rate, I'll be able to get even more shiny new stuff tomorrow anyways.
What did you buy with bitcoins on this holiday season?

Comunidade de Bitcoins cria sua própria Black Friday

A comunidade das Bitcoins resolveu aproveitar a Black Friday para ajudar na disseminação da moeda virtual criando um evento próprio, o Bitcoin Friday. Centenas de lojas já aderiram ao evento criado pela organização Fight for the Future. Entre as empresas confirmadas estão a Cheapair (venda de passagens aéreas com desconto) e a GSM Nation (venda de aparelhos celulares desbloqueados). A Gyft também vai aceitar Bitcoins na compra de Gift Cards da Amazon e da Target. Além disso, os compradores podem fazer doações com as Bitcoins.
“Boas empresas que realmente entenderam a tecnologia e o potencial das Bitcoins estão se juntando a nós”, disse Homes Wilson, da Fight for the Future. Jon Holmquist, co-criador do Bitcoin Friday, destaca que as taxas de transações com as Bitcoins são consideravelmente menores que as de cartão de crédito. De acordo com Holmquist, as compras podem sair de 3% a 5% mais baratas.
Essa será a segunda Bitcoin Friday, apesar de que no ano passado o evento ocorreu algumas semanas antes da Black Friday. Desde então, a moeda virtual ganhou bastante notoriedade, o que fez com que Holmquist decidisse fazer o evento no mesmo dia da famosa data. “Eu acho que nós somos grandes o bastante para assumir a Black Friday” disse. “A Black Friday é o maior dia de compras do ano e é um ótimo modo de começar”.
Cerca de 150 empresas participarão do Bitcoin Friday esse ano. O dobro em relação às participantes do ano passado. Holmquist espera que até sexta-feira (29) o número de empresas participantes chegue a 500. Ele também espera uma quantidade maior de consumidores. Até agora, o site já recebeu 2.500 e-mails de cadastro; no ano passado, menos de 500 pessoas compraram com as bitcoins.
Além do Fight for the Future, a Bitcoin Friday está sendo apoiado pelo Bitcoin Investment Trust (BIT). Barry Silbert, fundador do BIT, disse que a organização está apoiando o evento para “contar a todo mundo e promover a adoção das Bitcoins”.
