On the day after American Thanksgiving, bitcoiners (along with everyone else) will begin their holiday shopping in earnest, with Bitcoin Black Friday sales competing for shopping dollars by offering big discounts. In conjunction with mainstream Black Friday, merchants in the space will offer exclusive discounts to digital currency users. Here are a few options for anyone looking to get a good deal on some crypto-friendly merchandise this weekend.
Hardware wallet manufacturers including Trezor, Ledger and OpenDime have officially announced various exclusive deals they will offer on Bitcoin Black Friday.
Ledger, known for its popular hardware wallets, Ledger Nano and Nano S, are offering a 21 percent discount on all products. The Ledger Nano S, a bitcoin and ether hardware wallet, will be available for $48.43. The Nano S wallet is a secure and robust alternative to online web or mobile wallets for digital currency storage.
The hardware wallet’s innovative OLED display enhances user experience, making it easy for beginner bitcoin and ether users to store their assets.
"Bitcoin Black Friday is a very important date for us where we usually see the highest level of sales of the year,” Eric Larchevêque, CEO at Ledger, told Bitcoin Magazine. “That is why we have decided to launch the Ledger Blue this Friday, combining a great promo price with the great exposure of this event.”
Trezor is offering exclusive deals on Bitcoin Black Friday similar to last year: $20 off all products, including its signature TREZOR hardware wallet, and Cryptosteel, a stainless steel alternative to paper wallets. In order to get the deal, customers will need to use a discount code at checkout.
Opendime, a small USB stick-based bitcoin wallet developed by Coinkite, is offering a 15 percent discount on its hardware wallet. The product, which the company likes to call the Bitcoin Stick, can be used to store bitcoin, spend funds, or check balances by plugging the USB wallet into a computer.
“Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend bitcoin like a dollar bill. Pass it along multiple times. Connect to any USB to check balances. Unseal anytime to spend online. Trust no one,” the company states.

Crypto Jeweler, the world’s first digital currency jewelry store founded in early 2014, is offering 25-50 percent off on its products, including up to 25 percent off on its holiday collection.
