      Yesterday, Mike Tyson's bitcoin company (called Mike Tyson Bitcoin, obviously) formally debuted its bitcoin wallets for both iOS and Android. The Mike Tyson Bitcoin app joins the Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM in the family of Tyson-oriented Bitcoin technology. While the Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM allowed fans of both the boxer as well as digital currencies to convert cash to bitcoin, the new app allows one to store and trade bitcoin.

      On the app's Google Play store download page, Tyson is quoted as saying, "In a few years from now bitcoin and other digital currency are going to be a normal part of our monetary systems," adding, "In no way do I profess to be any kind of bitcoin currency guru. It just seems very interesting and I'm intrigued with the possibilities."

      According to the Mike Tyson Bitcoin official site, the sole Mike Tyson Bitcoin ATM is currently located at the Linq Casino in Las Vegas.
