Black Bitcoin-Friday project announces the closure

Black Bitcoin-Friday project announces the closure
Black Bitcoin Friday announced its closure. According to the creator of the project, Jon Holmquist, the mission is fully completed, and the use of BTC for consumer payments no longer appeals to him personally.

Holmquist explained that over the seven years of the project, he fell out of love with the use of bitcoin as a means of payment for consumers.
In his opinion, the first cryptocurrency is primarily an investment and financial instrument.
He recalled that the project was launched to dispel the image of bitcoin as a shadow market currency. In partnership with retailers, Holmquist organized the participation of coin owners in the traditional Black Friday sale day.
He does not oppose anyone else to continue the project and is opened to negotiations.

An Open Letter to Overstock

I've tried to reach out to Overstock multiple times now. For whatever reason I haven't been able to reach the proper person to chat to at the company. If anyone can reach them, please forward this request along.
We'd like for you guys to participate in Bitcoin Black Friday.
This is more than just Black Friday deals we're talking about. It is an event, every year, where pretty much everyone in the Bitcoin community joins together and helps each other out.
I know that I, personally, as a Bitcoiner, want to spend a ton of my coins with you guys. You've been great for the community, helped it grow, and been incredibly supportive. Please continue to be supportive by having a special sale just for us.
I will regardless shop on Overstock and use the same Black Friday deals as everyone else, but I would love if there was something exclusive, just for Bitcoiners.
Please consider doing a exclusive sale. There is still time to set something up.
Thank you,
Jon Holmquist

Only 4 Dogecoin Merchants Signed Up for Dogecoin Black Friday (28th November 2014), 60 Needed

In this CryptoCoinsNews article, BitcoinBlackFriday.com founder Jon Holmquist gave the following answer to the question "Where do altcoins stand in Bitcoin Black Friday?" :
"We are an inclusive event. Obviously we focus mainly on Bitcoin merchants but I’ve reached out to a couple altcoin communities about running an event with merchants that accept their currency. The communities have grown enough where it might be feasible. Right now, I’ve opened it up publicly to the Dogecoin community: http://www.reddit.com/dogecoin/comments/2lpu59/dogecoin_black_friday/ but only if they get a minimum of 60 merchants to participate. If the 60 merchant level is reached they will get a separate specifically designed landing page for the event."
After reading this article, I reached out to Jon and asked him how many Dogecoin merchants had signed up following his post on /dogecoin. His answer was rather disappointing: so far only 4 Dogecoin merchants have signed up.

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
-Jon Holmquist"

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”.
