Awesome! Jackpot Knockout!! Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM?
Mike Tyson hasn’t made many headlines lately, but a tweet he sent out late last week (July 25) has revealed that the former heavyweight boxing champion is getting into bitcoin by launching a bitcoin ATM.
Yes, Mike Tyson is getting into bitcoin. And he’s doing so in a very flashy manner, starting with his tagline on his site promoting the ATM: “Mike Tyson’s fastest knockout in the ring was 30 seconds. The Mike Tyson bitcoin ATM can turn your cash into bitcoin in under 20 seconds.”
Or, as Tyson phrased it in his tweet:
Coming soon… http://Miketysonbitcoin.com … Changing the way we get change.

Iron Mike’s ATM, as it’s been coined, is coming to Vegas in August. Currently, the site is not very descriptive about the project, but it does allow people to provide an email address to learn more about the bitcoin ATM when it launches. (It also features a pretty intimidating photo of Tyson in all his glory.)
Of course, for a guy like Tyson, this story didn’t come without its own bit of controversy. Tyson’s name is most commonly associated with the famous boxing match where he was was disqualified for biting off a hunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear in 1997. But even his bitcoin ATM caused some stir.
Following reports about the launch of the bitcoin ATM, there were also reports that the ATM was a scam. While some in the bitcoin community might think having a celebrity’s name behind bitcoin could be good press, others were quick to question the legitimacy of the plan.
