In an age where governments and corporations are monitoring our every move online, Bitcoin is a breath of fresh air. Bitcoin isn't exactly anonymous, but it is *much* more private than checks, credit cards, or Paypal. You can also use Bitcoin to purchase privacy-enhancing products, like Private Internet Access, or Silent Circle.
Bitcoin has so much potential to make the world a fairer and more prosperous place. But it needs our help. Because Bitcoin challenges such powerful industries, it will face serious political opposition-- especially in the U.S. where those industries are strongest. This amazing new technology will only be politically safe once millions of people rely on it every day.
Black Friday is the biggest U.S. shopping day of the year, so that seemed like a great place to start! Are you in? Wanna know more? Ask us during our [Reddit AMA]
