While some hailed the news as good PR for bitcoin, questions about the legitimacy of the project soon surfaced following a closer look at the site’s domain owner, Peter Klamka and the project’s partner, Bitcoin Direct LLC.
For Riley, this suggested the ATM had the potential to be a scam at Tyson’s expense.
The partner company listed on the Tyson ATM homepage, Bitcoin Direct LLC, turns up an equally empty online trail.
CoinDesk has contacted Bitcoin Direct LLC for comment.
