Photos: Mike Tyson Reveals His First Bitcoin ATM

LAS VEGAS, NV – Bitcoin Direct, LLC, a subsidiary of Conexus Corporation, and Mike Tyson unveiled the first Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM and made it available to public use today at Off the Strip at the LINQ in Las Vegas, NV. This is the first of several Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATMs planned for the Las Vegas community and beyond.

“Bitcoin Direct is extremely pleased to be partnering with Mike Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, to help introduce and promote the use of digital currency by the general public.  Mike is a universally known boxer and celebrity whose fan base extends across a broad demographic. People around the world of all ages recognize him,” said Peter Klamka, CEO of Bitcoin Direct. “The Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM should help introduce bitcoin, the digital currency formerly seen as only used by the tech savvy, to the consumer and broaden its availability and appeal to the general public. The Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM offers consumers a convenient, secure, reputable, automated and economical method of purchasing bitcoin for cash.”

The Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM provides consumers the ability to instantaneously purchase bitcoin through their mobile devices, and should help to bridge the gap between bitcoin users and mainstream pop culture. The most significant difference between purchasing bitcoin from a Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM rather than online is the convenience and privacy that the bitcoin ATM offers to consumers.  Consumers can purchase bitcoin from a Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM by simply using their Bitcoin Wallet residing on any handheld device.

“I'm honored to join the bitcoin revolution with my very first bitcoin ATM,” said Mike Tyson. “The Mike Tyson branded Bitcoin ATM at Off the Strip at the LINQ is the first of hopefully many across the globe. I'm very excited about the possibilities."

Bitcoin is digital currency used for secure and instant transfer of value anywhere in the world. Bitcoin is created and maintained through an open network managed by its users. Bitcoin has a huge variety of uses.  It can purchase practically anything, from gift cards to electronics to food.

The Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM was launched today at a press event at Off the Strip in the LINQ. Mike Tyson welcomed the partnership alongside representatives of Bitcoin Direct.

Idk if Bitcoins will be the next thing but I generally like the idea of anonymous digital currency. Who knows.. could be a very good investment on Tyson's part to be getting in on a 50/50 partnership. Puttin all that…

[QUOTE=mathed;16080383]LOL, yeah, I think that's what it was too. That's exactly what I said to him, watch out because there is no way that this site isn't being monitored by the FBI or DEA. He used it at least 10…
