Yesterday many began speculating as to what major retailer would begin accepting Bitcoin next with Bitpay after the company began dropping hints that it would be making a major announcement this week. It now appears that announcement will be regarding NewEgg.

Early reports coming in to Coin Fire from those familiar with the situation are that this announcement would take later in the morning today but that some individuals had stumbled across the Bitcoin promotional pages and payment options earlier than anticipated.

Due to it being after 3am on the East Coast where BitPay is a comment could not be rendered regarding this major retail announcement at the time this entry was published.
