Boost VC Is Going Full Bitcoin

 

We are going full Bitcoin!
Our team is excited to announce, after raising $6.6m to fund 200 companies, that we will be accepting 20–30 Bitcoin companies into our next Boost tribe. Tribe 5 will consist of 100% Bitcoin companies. Under this umbrella we will be looking at payments, exchanges, block chain technology, Sidechains, and companies that service Bitcoin companies. We are very excited about the focus that this will bring us. Long term we hope to be able to breach other “before-the-chasm” industries, but Bitcoin is our first exciting step.

Purse.io Announces Black Friday Deals – Save 20% On Amazon By Paying in Bitcoin.

What we do at Purse is enable our customers to use Bitcoin on the world’s largest online merchant, Amazon. You can spend your BTC for any item on Amazon and receive 20% off.  You can also use Purse to purchase BTC with a Credit Card or Amazon Gift Cards, Win, Win, Win.

There are many new and exciting things that are happening at Purse. We have heard over and over about how the Bitcoin ecosystem needs more design and better UI. Well, we listened and we will be rolling out a new wonderfully designed website just in time for the holidays. This site integrates a simple buy / sell process with an elegant design.

The holidays will be huge for Purse and more specifically Black Friday. We want to provide the BTC community with the biggest discounts possible. Currently, our average discounts for any item is 20% but we have even seen up to 45% off entire purchases. The higher the discount percentage the longer the acceptance and delivery times are but if you don’t need the item immediately then why not get a large discount. So, make sure you get your holiday shopping in early so that you can get the biggest discounts.

Through our customer analysis we have collected a great deal of data on top product purchases, as well as where on the planet these purchases are being made. We are now operating in 87 countries and that number is growing weekly.

Also, we have created an infographic with all the top items bitcoiners buy. These could also be good ideas for your next holiday purchase.

Lastly, we are very excited to announce our new panel of investors. We have been backed by some of the industry leaders and we are excited to see how our company will flourish through these partnerships.

The Ultimate Bitcoin Black Friday Guide

 

Bitcoin

The Ultimate Bitcoin Black Friday Guide

by Alyssa Hertig 

Want to enjoy lavish Black Friday discounts with Bitcoin without the lines, camping out for several days, and the risk of violence?

Maybe Bitcoin Black Friday is the extravaganza for you. Last year was huge. In fact, it was the “most popular day in the history of Bitcoin commerce.” BitPay broke records, the official website BitcoinBlackFriday.com pulled in 100,000 unique visitors, and even Ashton Kutcher participated.

You can check out a nicely compiled infograph of last year’s figures here.

Thus, expectations are high for 2014. From Newegg electronics to bear calendars, there’s plenty to choose from. Here’s a guide to the best deals for Bitcoin.

BitcoinBlackFriday.com

The official Bitcoin Black Friday made its debut a couple years ago. Rumors are swirling that a coalition of 1,200 merchants will be participating, which is twice as many as last year and 24 times more than the year before.

“We’re really excited for this year’s event because it has all the opportunity to be much bigger than last year’s event” says Jon Holmquist, the founder of Bitcoin Friday, ”Even though the Bitcoin prices might be lower than last year, the quantity and caliber of merchants participating this year has improved greatly. Consumers should be able to do most, if not all, of their holiday shopping with Bitcoin this year.”

Cruise over to BitcoinBlackFriday.com to participate. They’ve already launched a preview of the items for sale. A mix of merchants big and small, international and local, are eager to offer discounts for Bitcoin users.

Holmquist told CNBC that they have special things planned for this year:

“We have two things planned. First is the ability to instantly purchase Bitcoin with your credit card: a small amount, like US$25 worth. For most people, that’s not too much of a risk. And we’re also going to have a section [of the site] where you can purchase something for a small amount of money.”

Mixed Tees

Mixed Tees, the company with witty graphic tees fueled by artists, will sell T-shirts for as low as US$5. Those purchasing with Bitcoin and participating in the Thunderclap campaign will get an extra 10% off.

Unique Bitcoin wallets

Bitcoin storage is getting creative. With Cryptoart, bitcoins can be stored in some fancy limited edition pieces. It’s reminiscent of the classic store-a-fortune-behind-a-painting trick, though you can skip digging a hole in your wall to fill a cumbersome safe.

All Cryptoart is 50% off for the big day. In addition, the art retailer will give away 100 paintings.

Woodwallets: If you are picturing wallets made of wood, you have the right idea. They’re rock-solid and water proof cards. All products will be 50% off.

Newegg

Newegg is also participating for the first time since they got onboard the Bitcoin merchant bandwagon.

Bitcoin Black Friday starts in full on November 28, but NewEgg has kicked off the Bitcoin shopping event by offering fourteen deals at discounts past those you can get by paying with a credit card. If you use Bitcoin you can get an Xbox One Console bundle for only US$299.99. Additionally most of the deals going live on Friday are now viewable on the Bitcoin Black Friday website. The table below lists some of the hot deals currently available to Bitcoin users.

Black Friday Preview from BitPay

Today, BitPay posted a sneak preview of its merchants that are offering great Bitcoin Black Friday deals for BTC shoppers. Here’s a few of the many BitPay merchants (list excludes merchants already mentioned) with sales on Bitcoin Black Friday:

  • SchiffGold is listing 1-Oz silver bars for only 79 cents over spot, in addition to lowering their minimum order and offering free shipping for their Bitcoin customers.

  • BitcoinBowlPackages.com will be selling select Bitcoin Bowl ticket and hotel packages at a discounted rate of 25% off. Learn how to travel to the world’s largest Bitcoin event for less here.

  • Gyft will be listing deals for gift card buyers at BitcoinBlackFriday.com.

  • Black Country Rock Media will offer Bitcoin-exclusive mixtape sales as well 50% off of five different vinyl records when purchased with Bitcoin.

  • SurfEasy will allow Bitcoin users to protect their privacy for less with its no-log VPN service, available on Friday for 50% off.

  • Amagi Metals is providing free shipping on domestic Bitcoin orders of US$75 or more with code “BBF2014.”

  • Fangamer will reward bitcoin purchases of its gaming-themed apparel and merchandise with gift cards of up to US$50 as well as free or discounted shipping.

  • Silver Gold Bull will be taking 1% off of the price all products and providing Bitcoin shoppers free shipping for orders over US$250.

  • Soundwallet, which allows Bitcoin users to record their private keys on vinyl, is offering 25% off of its unique storage solution for shoppers using the code “Bitcoin.”

More deals to keep in mind

Purse.io – buy discounted Amazon products with a workaround

Purse.io offers big savings on Amazon products—the average savings is 17%. “Finally, a reason to use Bitcoin,” is Purse.io’s slogan. It’s confusing, but all you have to do is put the link to the Amazon product in Purse.io, and wait to see if it’ll go through. Making cheaper stuff a reality is definitely a reason to use it.

Signed Bitcoin book

CNBC’s Brian Kelly, once a Bitcoin skeptic, is launching a new book about Bitcoin: “The Bitcoin Big Bang: How Alternative Currencies Are About to Change the World.” If you purchase the book with Bitcoin on his website, Kelley will personally sign the copy.

Beepi cars

Beepi is a car marketplace that accepts Bitcoin. In case you missed it, you can now buy cars with the digital currency. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, all Bitcoin purchases are 10% off.

eGifter gift cards

Gift cards are a pretty solid holiday gift for people running out of ideas. eGifter is giving Bitcoin users 7X points for every dollar through Cyber Monday. Users can redeem points for gift cards in the future. 100 points is equivalent to US$1 in savings. You can buy gift cards to Target, Old Navy, and Chili’s, among many others.

And there may be others. While Overstock is not participating in the official Bitcoin Black Friday, users can still use BTC to partake in the same deals as everyone else. Remember that Overstock will also take 4% of proceeds and send them to digital currency non-profits.

Discounted Bitcoin trading services

A few companies are reducing fees for Bitcoin payment and trading services.

BitQuick offers fast BTC trades and, like last year, is offering some fee reductions for the event. Normally they charge 2% to BTC buyers, but Friday the fee will be reduced to just 1%. They’ll also give customers US$10 for free similarly to the campaigns held by Circle and Coinbase.

Moreover, the derivatives platform BTC.sx is reducing trading fees by 20% and reducing daily interest charges on leveraged positions by 50%. Happy trading.

Additionally, Coinbase is waiving 1% buyback fees until Sunday for orders made with their merchants.

Happy Shopping…and Donating

Many are excited to see if this year’s BTC sales volume will exceed last year’s. So far, it certainly seems like Bitcoin is picking up momentum in the run up to the event. Just comparing the trading volume on Locatlbitcoins.com is a cause for excitement for any Bitcoin enthusiast.

Expect some surprises as well such as Dogecoin Black Friday?

Finally, if your altruistic side gets the better of you while you’re shopping, consider donating to these Bitcoin-accepting non-profits as posted on BitPay’s blog:

Tatiana interviews DJ Stoopkid at Premier Studios

image3843I sat down at Premier Studios on 10/21/14 with Andrew Getz aka DJ Stoopkid.  He makes every party amazing, I’m not kidding, all the people go crazy dancing!  He was the DJ at the Tatiana Coin launch party at the Bitcoin Center, and I think that was his first intro to crypto.  Since Premier now takes bitcoin (thank you Bitpay), I guess he will be learning more!  I can’t wait to see him at the next event at the studio, or around NYC.  For more on Andrew, see the links below.  For more info on the seminars at the studio, go to www.PremierStudiosNY.com.

Bitcoin.info launches

bitcoin.info

Press-Release: 16th Oct 2014
By: Techemy ltd
For: General news distribution.

With the explosion of interest in Bitcoin over the last 24 months, keywords, trademarks and domain names around bitcoin have become somewhat of a commodity.

Techemy Ltd, a NZ based start-up, has secured a key domain name in the bitcoin space: Http://bitcoin.info

Company co-founder and CEO, Fran Strajnar stated:

“After having spent 11 months building a stable price index (BNC Price-Index via Bravenewcoin.com), we wanted to offer the world a clean website with a solid domain name for 1 reason: Accurate Price-Discovery (and related tools).”

Price-Discovery is the economic concept of finding the value & price in a marketplace. This is a basic requirement for an emerging industry to build products and services around.

Strajnar expands with;

“MtGox represented the bulk of trading in Bitcoin until the end of 2013. It was easy to discover the price during Gox’s reign. Since then, literally dozens of exchanges have open shop all around the world and surprisingly no other index out there, captures anywhere near all of this data, making Price Discovery somewhat questionable. We believe Price Discovery to be a ‘Public-Good’, and will not be charging for this. Our API is free to use, constantly added-to as new exchanges open their doors, accurate & stable. A public good for the industry to use”.

What sort of services require an accurate global-bitcoin-price?

  • Wallets: Consumers want to pay an accurate market price at all times.
  • Futures & Financial products: Financial products require stable backbone. One example: 796.com, the world’s largest Bitcoin-Futures exchange, uses this API calculate their Millions of USD worth of weekly settlements.
  • Billing platforms: Invoicing & billing services require a current price to generate correct fiat figures for business owners.
  • Portfolio Management: Tracking your client’s or your own investments.
  • Gaming Industry: Settlement calculation or Fiat value displayed to gamers.
  • News & info Services: News agencies and search engines can now display comprehensive market data.
  • & Any possible product or service that requires an accurate price Fiat price for Bitcoin.

The API is available here: http://api.bravenewcoin.com/ticker/bnc_ticker_btc.json

Techemy Ltd collects a ton of data from the Bitcoin & Altcoin marketplaces. If you or your company require something custom or more advanced, like global consolidated order books, or plan on running a service where such data is critical and you require a Service-Level-Agreement, the company can be reach on contact@bitcoin.info

New Decentralized Trust Finance

We are living times of deep economic uncertainty. Eroded trust in official institutions, a sense that centralization of decision-making is less capable of satisfying the wider needs of Society is strong.
