If you're in Las Vegas and need to turn your cash into cyber-currency in hurry, look no further than Mike Tyson. Because of course.
Bitcoin Direct unveiled an ATM at LINQ Hotel & Casino that features Iron Mike's name and trademark face tattoo. The ATM has the ability to change cash into the digital currency Bitcoin.

"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," Bitcoin Direct CEO Peter Klamka said in a statement provided to ESPN.
Tyson seemed thrilled. "I'm honored to join the bitcoin revolution with my very first bitcoin ATM," he said, according to ESPN.
Yep, not sketchy at all. We wonder how much a tiger costs in overly inflated currency?
