With Solana emerging as a new contender for the smart contract crown, former professional boxer Mike Tyson recently asked the cryptocurrency community on Twitter if the upstart is better than rival Ethereum.


 

The proponents of the two competing cryptocurrencies started trading punches in Tyson’s replies.

Some, however, agreed that both of them have their own value propositions that make them unique.

Dmitry Buterin, the father of Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, entered the ring to bring some positivity to the discussion.

 

Meanwhile, Bitcoiners urged Mike to ignore both projects and focus on the crypto king, Bitcoin.

Tyson is not a newcomer in crypto. All the way back in 2015, he launched a branded Bitcoin ATM in Las Vegas. The 55-year-old boxing legend also introduced a series of his non-fungible tokens on OpenSea in late August.

Sports and cryptocurrency have been starting to cross paths more often in recent times. Boxing, specifically, has been seen to integrate crypto often. In the fight against Logan Paul, undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather advertised EthereumMax.

 

Mayweather also launched his NFT collection Floyd’s World in OpenSea, with the highest prized going from 700 – 100 ETH. Aside from the obvious aim of making money, the collection wants to honor the boxer’s undisputed and undefeated boxing record.

Back in March, an NFT of boxer Muhammad Ali also been launched by Ethernity Chain. This was done in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic “Fight of the Century.” The Non-Fungible Token has been dubbed by Ethernity Chain as the first-ever licensed “NFT of Historical Significance.”
