A year of Bitcoin as a payment option @bitcoin #bitcoin #makerbusiness

Here’s what the last year of bitcoin sales have looked like at Adafruit in chart form, we haven’t seen any company share any info about sales have been going if they accept bitcoin, so we thought we’d post this to show the general direction. We launched bitcoin as a payment November of 2013, a year ago. We launched at peak bitcoin, we’ve seen a few bumps up and then back down. Was it worth it? Heck yes! We picked the right time to add it, the community loved it and we learned a lot. Tomorrow is Bitcoin black friday, we’ll likely see a sales bump in 24 hours. See you at the sale 🙂

Bitcoin Black Friday is a holiday shopping extravaganza just for Bitcoin users. Starting on the 26th, through Black Friday on the 28th, and until Cyber Monday, hundreds of merchants selling everything from web hosting to organic beer will offer special deals to anyone paying in Bitcoin.

The best part is some folks made bitcoin miners with parts from Adafruit, following our tutorial, mined some coins and then spent them on Adafruit, that’s really neat.

  1. I run a small hobby webshop accepting bitcoin and I’ve seen similar patterns, the usage have declined pretty steadily since the bubble last winter. It’s to be expected I guess, it brought a lot of attention to bitcoin but lately not much has been happening to grab the mainstream’s focus.
