Bitcoin Black Friday is Upon Us. Lets Have a Little Look.

Before it even started there was some drama because some fraudster captain of the industry registered http://bitcoinblackfriday.info and was immediately flagged as a fraud by weak hands. The "real" Bitcoin Black Friday was quick to respond with information about this years even here: https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3s5cs0/update_on_the_real_bitcoin_black_friday_com/
The most important part of that post is this little nugget:
Goals for this year:
100+ Merchants. (That's smaller this year! We're going to be only accepting quality merchants. After reviewing which sites actually got traffic and sales last year, the 'filler' merchants don't need to be there.)
So lets have a little look at http://bitcoinblackfriday.com/ and see what those quality merchants are.
It starts strong with Humble Bundle listed near the top. Their ties to them is so strong they listed them twice, first the weekly bundle and then the books bundle. Note that it's not a special deal or anything. They just link to the regular weekly bundle. Why not link to the main bundle you ask? Because that one doesn't accept bitcoin...
Need to buy honey and honey related products for bitcoin? http://www.beesbros.com/ has you covered.
Tired of the digital nature of the internet of money. Buy a physical bitcoin from Denarium. Chose between a bulls head or a pigeon. https://denarium.com/?apply_coupon=bitcoinblackfriday#products The nice people over at Hardbtc will also sell you physical versions of the low friction email of money. http://hardbtc.org/ocart/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_62&product_id=68
There are also paper wallets if you want to increase the risk of losing your coins: https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/?special=BLACK
If you want some more valuable metals, Amagi Metals will set you up. They have apparently started accepting bitcoin again after not doing s for awhile. https://www.amagimetals.com/bitcoin-black-friday#
Here's a personal favourite. http://zimbabwedollars.net/ Yes, you can now buy the most worthless currency on the planet with the second most worthless currency on the planet. All prices are in dollars.
Want to buy some random used junk for local pickup in San Diego only? The Butter Zone is the place for you. No I'm not making this shit up. Behind the worlds dodgiest URL hides this little golden buttery gem: http://fs.tbz1.com/ Need a grey 3-piece suit, a spare tire for a Toyota Corolla 1993 or some RPG Books? Look no further. This is some top quality merchandise.
We all know that bitcoin's killer app is converting stolen credit cards into real money. Here's a new way to help the poor Russian mafia get some money: http://www.cheaperthansteam.com/shop/just-cause-3/
Here's a deal on a 21 Inc PiTato actual Raspberry Pi and accessories: https://pisavvy.com/product-categories/raspberry-pi
The Bitcoin News are selling 10 000 banner clicks for 50 % off! http://thebitcoinnews.com/shop/bannerads/10-000-banner-clicks/
I don't even know what this is and the website doesn't work. http://i.imgur.com/GUNRqe1.png Is it a joke? Is it memes? I have no idea.
Someone saw a hole in the market left by our favourite ex-bitcoin mod and are offering 20 % off of bitcoin soaps. http://www.bitsoaps.com/ They have a litcoin soap as well.
Want to buy contraband cigarettes? Bitcoin have you covered: https://www.dutyfree.io/ How can they sell their cigarettes so cheaply?
It’s because we purchase and send them from poorly developed, Eastern European countries where cigarettes cost a fraction of the price you’re used to pay in the West. There are still huge discrepancies in the standard of living across this world’s countries and as long as this discrepancy persists (as long as you guys keep on borrowing), an arbitrage opportunity will exist and will be exploited. We think Bitcoin helps tremendously in this regard.
They claim it's perfectly legal and that you will not have to pay any duty or tax. They are of course lying through their teeth. Proper captains of the industry.
Want to smoke in style? Get disposable Vapes from Julien Marley. Super classy mon. http://blackoutx.com/collections/juju-royal-by-julian-marley
There are many herb related sellers. This one sells some kind of hemp based pills that has loads of potential health benefits. http://hempsci.com/ It has Sci in the name and mentions loads of chemistry stuff on the site so it must be totally legit. One of the main selling points is that it's legal so it has to be good.
Want to grow stuff indoors, http://growershouse.com/ has all your hydroponic needs. I did not know bitcoiners grew their own spices and vegetables...
Here's a place that sell herbal teas including one that cures diabetes. Or at least has anti-diabetic properties. According to one study. Also, it was done on mice. http://readyherbs.us/index.php/product/diabetes-tea/
Next up is http://www.thaidye.com/ which offers tie dye clothing. Felt like a good segue from the herbs.
More clothes. The Mises store is on the list because of course it is. http://store.mises.org/Mises-Knows-Premium-Fitted-T-shirt-P10977.aspx
And lastly, not alpaca socks but socks non the less. https://www.soxinabox.club/ Subscribe to socks.
There are many more dubious business on the list but I'm way to lazy to talk about them all. Please, go through the rest of them because there's much comedy gold left to mine.

Thanks largely to the information and discussions here on /bitcoin and related r's, I've completed a personal goal of acquiring and spending 1 BTC without using any fiat currency!
I know this isn't a lot of value, but over the last few months learning about and experimenting with Bitcoin, I've:
To celebrate this momentous occasion, I spent my entire remaining balance of just over 1 BTC on silver bullion from Amagi Metals!
TL;DR I learned a lot about Bitcoin on /bitcoin. Thanks!

My Terrible Experience With GoldSilver.com

This post is about my experience with an order mix up that occurred about a month ago when ordering an 100 oz. JM bar from Mike Maloney's goldsilver.com and the terrible customer support that followed. This is very long so feel free to read the TL;DR at the bottom.
In the past I've always used Amagi Metals for my purchases because they've always had excellent prices, good support, and were one of the first to accept Bitcoin. However they were out of JM bars at the time and I decided to use GoldSilver instead. My parents have used Goldsilver.com in the past with no problem and I've enjoyed Mike's Hidden Secrets of Money series. They also recently added a Bitcoin payment option with Bitpay which I've always preferred since the payment is quick and I get the cash discount. However, for some reason my bitcoin transfer was delayed by my online wallet and it arrived after the usual 15 minutes that the Bitpay invoice expires. I immediately contacted Bitpay and after a few hours they confirmed that they received the payment and that everything was fine. They said they could either refund the Bitcoins back to me or pass it on to GoldSilver to pay for my order to which I chose the latter. BIG MISTAKE!
After a day of not seeing a confirmation order or seeing any order on my GoldSilver account history I contacted support through their online messager. I told them what happened and gave them a link to the bitpay invoice (looks like this: http://imgur.com/NYCHTbf) that had my order number, name, address and email. He said they were having trouble finding my order and that he would get back to me soon.
After several days of no reply, I contacted them again and the same person responded saying once again that he would look into it and promised he would be back in touch by the end of the day. I even gave him my email to be sure he had the right one. Still no response afterwards.
After several more days I contact them for the third time and now nearly two weeks have passed. The same person responds and he says that he emailed me. I tell him I haven't gotten anything and again send my email only for him to say that wasn't the email on the account. What?!? You can see my email on the Bitpay invoice along with my address, of course it should be on my account. I ask him what email it is on and he says he cannot disclose that. After nearly 20 minutes of messaging and getting more frustrated he finally informs me that the address is located in Maine. I live in Texas.
Naturally I'm starting to freak out at this point since my $1,700 silver bar is about to be shipped in the opposite direction of the country and for probably the fifth or sixth time I tell him to check the Bitpay invoice with my address on it. He finally seems to understand that my order was mixed up with someone else and is able to stop the shipment which was about to go out. I call him later that day to clear everything up (I was unable to call most of this time because their business hours conflicted with my schedule) and it finally seems like he's understood what happened and fixed it.
I tell him that since they have messed up my order so badly I would prefer he just refund me to which he flatly refuses due some terms of agreement. Since silver had dropped so much since I paid and they are only just now preparing to ship my order I ask that at least my payment apply to current prices to which he also refuses. They even took about two more more weeks after all this before they shipped the silver.
TL;DR: I order a 100 oz. JM bar from Goldsilver.com using Bitcoin. The payment processor confirms payment was received but Goldsilver support can't find it and has terrible communication over the course of several weeks. They end up almost shipping my order to an address on the other side of the US and when everything is finally resolved they refuse to give me a refund or adjust my order to current silver prices.
I've been ordering silver online with Bitcoin for years using multiple retailers and I've never had one that messed up an order (especially this bad) or who had such terrible support. If I hadn't kept trying to get a hold of them, my order would have ended up in Maine and I would be out $1,700. I'll never be buying from GoldSilver.com again and I would recommend that anyone who reads this avoid them like the plague. If you do end up using their support, use email and not the online messenger so you can have records of the conversation. Also, if you get Christian Garcia, ask for someone else. Incompetence is too kind a word to describe him.

Shibes need some help with a payment, buying some silver coins with dogecoin this is what I need to do:

Was buying some silver coins in AMAGI metals , because I saw they were receiving bitcoins and then I noticed they also take Dogecoins, so ofc I went for that option instead! I haven't done really any serious payments with dogecoins so I want to make sure I do it right. I have 2 hours to do this:
Send 283967.68545200 DOGE to (dogecoin address here) within 2 hours (make sure you leave enough time to get 10 confirms before the time limit!).
*So how do I make sure I send "enough" to get 10 confirms?? I have the dogecoin windows based wallet, so what is a "decent fee" that I should leave to meet that requierement that is good enough but also that isn't THAT much that I end up paying an overprice for my items?
Thanks a lot for any insight!
Edit: I ended giving 5 DOGE as the fee just to make sure, the payment went very quickly (about 15 min) for all the 10 confirmations. I only have one last question: How do I track the dogecoin transactions in the future? I tried with dogechain.info/tx/transactionIDhere but it said it didn't exist. I also did dogechain.info/address/theirXDG addres here and it was showing the amount I sent in their balance, but is there a way to see the progress of a transaction and its confirmations?
Thanks

[140910] "Apple Pay Day" Bitcoin popularity trend analysis

As I've written previously, I believe that Bitcoin is the dog wagging the tail. Therefor I will focus this post on Bitcoin and see what's happening there.
Seven days ago, there was a spike in number of hits on the Bitcoin wikipedia page (http://stats.grok.se/en/latest90/Bitcoin). Accordingly to Google trends, this happens the same day the Shrem news hits the wires (http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/09/04/4326680/plea-scheduled-for-ny-bitcoin.html). Accordingly to Google trends, Bitcoin is a hot topic in US and Canada. Accordingly to ahrefs Russia is also showing a lot of interest and is linking a lot to bitcoin.org (https://ahrefs.com/site-exploreoverview/subdomains/?target=bitcoin.org), the overall upwards trend is stagnating and almost beginning to turn down though. Reddit confirms this view and there the trend is also turning down (https://pay.reddit.com/Bitcoin/about/traffic). The Bitcoin Sentiment Index is also turning down (http://www.coindesk.com/sentiment-index/) and even hard core enthusiasts such as the guy behind the mike at Bitcoin and Gravy (http://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/post/bitcoins-and-gravy-ep-32-the-big-apple-amagi-metals) admits to feeling a little bit depressed. The trading price on exchanges confirms this bleak picture and overall trading volume across exchanges are declining (http://data.bitcoinity.org/markets/volume/30d?c=e&t=a&volume_unit=btc).
My personal belief is that what we have had the past few months, is a much anticipated consolidation after the wild ride to above 1000, down to super lows and oscillations around 500. It's pretty obvious that people have been betting on BTCUSD going down and actually the sum of active BTC swaps on bitfinex hit the considerable high point of 10K (http://www.bfxdata.com/combined/btc.php) which tells us that a lot of people are shorting - so that's how we know that people are betting on price going down.
So what is the take away from all of this? I believe that the saying "the market is pricing in a future events" is very true for Bitcoin. Bitcoin, I believe, derives its value from the prospect of the currency becoming viable and wide spread. While this is in many ways becoming true with Paypal/Braintree, Dell to name only 2 out of an "endless amount of spectacular announcements" the past year, I believe much of it was already priced into the market so to speak. A string of almost to good to be true news, have hit a market that has been consolidating and being under great selling pressure. What does this mean? In my view it means that people who bought coin, anticipating that Bitcoin would someday "go mainstream" have been depressed about the collapse in price and all of the good being already priced into the price, has obviously not been enough to prop it up, hence many people think it's either time to take profit or cut the losses short. So then, is this the end?
I definitely think it's not. While Paypal/Braintree and Dell are good reasons to sell bitcoins (in exchange for goods and services) I still think the "killer app" for buying has not yet materialized. While I think more and more wallet apps, will be thrown to the wall until something sticks - I think the killer app is not an app really, but actually a "killer feature" of the protocol itself; namely that it is a system that works outside of the traditional banking system. What I'm waiting for, is some kind of crisis in the banking system where things freezes up and where people, who uses VISA etc, will have trouble moving money while the Bitcoin network just continuous to work. Something like that, banking holiday or similar, that could spike the price of bitcoins. If nothing like it happen, I still believe the price to go up anyway, since there are so many people still out there who hasn't heard about it and don't own any.
Everything isn't down, only the price and peoples sentiment. There is nothing that draws attentions, such as a runaway ascent where price goes parabolic to the moon, and when that happens I believe the number of search hits on wikipedia etc will increase as well. People are trading more and more bitcoins and on localbitcons we hit an all time high in volume (https://bitcoincharts.com/charts/localbtcUSD#igWeeklyzm1g10zm2g25zi1gVolzvzcv) and this happened last week. Besides the BitLicense, everything I've heard is positive. Everything besides the price which is down. And price I believe, is down because of the bad sentiment, because people look at the price and not the spectacular things happening. More ATM's are being added all the time and he number of transactions on the network is actually picking up (https://blockchain.info/charts/n-transactions-excluding-popular?timespan=2year&showDataPoints=false&daysAverageString=30&show_header=true&scale=0&address=) so we know it is being used, for one reason or another. Nothing here that says bitcoins will be worthless soon.
Buy when sentiment is at a low point, sell when people are euphoric. Is this where we're at? People sure aren't euphoric but I wouldn't say that we're at the "puke point" either. The simple answer is that I don't know where the low will be but I'm confident that someday the price will cross 1000 again, so I believe it's all about dollar cost averaging down, keeping some chunk of money on the table if the price goes really super low.
