Evander Holyfield Joins BitShares

in #bitshares3 years ago (edited)

No, this is not your usual celebrity commitment. This is a lasting joint effort to help places like Houston.

Boxing legend Evander Holyfield teams up with Cryptonomex and Arise Bank to raise a billion dollars for humanitarian disaster recovery. Together they will raise a million dollars for the cause and then grow it to a billion dollar endowment by promoting growth in AriseCoin and BitShares in the difficult months to come as Houston, Miami and San Juan rebuild with the technology of BitShares AriseBank and hero’s like Evander.

Evander will ask other celebrities to Accept the Challenge and join the fight in an upcoming event in Atlanta. We are sneak previewing it here for the benefit of our most loyal supporters. Consider it an "informational share drop".

Evander will also be announcing other athletes and celebrities joining the biggest fight in history, in a separate event which is sure to have cross-promotional benefits for all parties, including the Steemit community where breaking news on this initiative will appear frequently.


Let's hope a competing crypto does not hire Mike Tyson.

Oh, that's inevitable, unless bitshares snaps him up first and launches a "bitshEARs" campaign!! Think of the possibilities!! This is marketing magic!

@bluerocktalk hope you get the more fame loved the interviews :)

Thank you @hamzaatiq!

Do you think you'll be making more interviews like these in the future? I'm loving all of it. You're awesome and a great step-up for the community. Top quality content!

You're so kind. I love your appreciation. I don't know why it made me feel warm fuzzies inside. This community is great. Love to you and everyone.

Love the interviews Connie, keep up the great work.

Thank you @matthewwarn, I appreciate that.
More to come for sure!

Awesome 👏🏻 I appreciate that ❤️


Aaaaaaa I didn't know you could post gifs. This is so great!

Do you just copy and post Gifs ?

Perfect reaction ya

IT IS! Isn't it? Best thing that happened today, it really made me smile.

Hello sir hope you get more fame :)

I'm sure he will. This stuff is so great quality that I'm sure that the fluffs and puffs will put him up with the greatest minds in the world.

Evander is actually the only boxer who never feared Tyson from the hype of the media. I'm glad i got to see this message. Shoutout Steemteam!

Evander even bet a chunk of his ear on it

@shazi935 click for click i will click on your blog. Even I am expecting same form you .
my blog https://steemit.com/nepal/@ournetwork/mithila-arts

Great fan of Evander & the fighters in the day. Will keep my eyes peeled & see how it goes.
Tyson should have at least had a small amount of food before he fought him, as i guess he got a little hungry during the fight. I watched it over & over. Good fight...

Ha ha ... Holyfield never would have beaten Tyson... he was heavily Juiced up (PEDs ) ...we’ll know more fact ... and he beat the tests too. ..he was a great fighter .. but an even greater head butter ..... check Hashim Rahmans head after Holyfield butt ... bigger than a tennis ball

One big hunk worth his weight in gold and love. <3

This guy has got a huge tongue

I couldn't resist...I wish I had !!!

Evander 'The Real Deal' Holyfield no way!! I remember watching him get his ear bit on a YouTube post when I was like 5 JK 16 Crazy that he is involved in the the Crypto World #10000000

good, very good

I love Jackie Chan :D

Me too, lol. His movies are so funny. Every time I think of him I remember how awesome China is. I hope they overcome their communism!

nice one there

How to earn money in STEEMIT Please tell me the actual thing!!!!

just made post . follow peoples and get followers . then upvote posts and get upvotes .. resteem also

sure thank u ....!

hmmm cool idea... Let's see how he goes. Always remember him as the guy who Tyson bit off his ear! haha

Just don't remind him of that if you ever meet him in person.

Frustration cannot be controlled when what you do easily turns hard. Holyfield was a good challenger.... i love the man.

Yeah, but even though we see them as funny people at the moment, in the great spectrum they're very inspiring, especially for the younger generations who grow up admiring these people. All the love! <3

Let's keep John McAfee far away from Bitshares!

I pitty the fool who doesn't hodl any bitshares

Right choice! I’m in Bts for long term as well!

looks cool!))

Wow that is awesome :)

Congratulations Evander and @stan !

Thank you @stan for dropping this here first. We are all excited for what BTS has in store for 2018, thank you for all of your travel and work. I got in months ago and it has made a huge difference so far for my family. I'm HODLing the rest of my stack though! lol

Appreciate the edit and the humility! Great job Stan!


Wow, you weren't joking when you said you were going to be dropping some big names for the Hero Campaign!

I have a question, where do I go to see my free tokens from sharing about the campaign on social media?

Uhh Bitshares is going uppp!!🚀

Super cool! Wish I hadn't sold my BTS at $0.08 :( :(

Any word on when the announcement event in Atlanta will be? I'd be interested in attending.


I have some BTS in my bag, so i am glad to see this info) Thanks

I prefer Myke Tyson

This is a great decision from the legend for a greater cause.

Thank you so much @stan for making Bitshares growth faster than everyone expectations.

2018 will be an amazyng year for bitshares!

yes i am in same mood with you

Wow this is totally awesome news, great post and I hope they raise it and above.

yes I like I got me sum bitshares only not that much
what do you think the price is gonna be by end of the year

I dont know but maybe i will look into this & see if it is suitable for me to invest

I have not looked deeper into bitshares yet ... but it is definitely one of the tasks I have to do!

I love evander holyfied,the guy who beat mike Tyson that the guy had to bit his ear..lol

This is his best quote I love most
People who make the choice to study, work hard or do whatever they endeavor is to give it the max on themselves to reach to the top level. And you have the people who get envy and jealous, yet are not willing to put that work in, and they want to get the same

So great! What a feel good post and I love me some Evander!

wow steady a sturdy youth in thinking limp body well and body healthy, legendary mike tyson three defeats the unforgettable concrete neck.

Be billionaire.

You are a real hero.

Great to hear! A legend aboard BitShares ... Happy New Year!

Is this the best way to contribute/add value to a post about Bitshares and humanitarian efforts?

PLZ consider a downvote for spam and to much selfupvote.

Great post!!

Nice post

Should to take the challenge

Pity Bitshares decided that people outside of US and Europe are not important.
Yes, I have seen the statements about it being global.
No, seeing these statements and claims it did not help.
Yes, I publicly reported my problem at least 3 times.
No, it never caused anyone to help me.
I guess Google, the caring BitShares community and the blockchain are all my friends.

You can join the Bitshares Discord server and they will help you with any issues you have @stimialiti


Keep the Great work

Just wait still Mike Tyson gets a bite out of this. =D

2018 will be better

Awesome venture and great cause!

Hi @stan ! i want to know how to make an interesting post and look good?

This gentleman apart from being a boxing legend, with actions like this shows his greatness as a person, thanks champion

good writing. congratulations

a joint venture that should definitely be supported.I wish everyone was so thoughtful,the world has become a better place..
Thanks for sharing...

Does he still have an ear!???

"...not your usual celebrity endorsement".
I like Evander and I like the cause but lets not forget that he is definitely getting paid for doing this. It is an endorsement. When I read this article my mind immediately goes to, I wonder what the administration costs are for this endowment.

Don't get me wrong, I understand this is for a great cause and from my knowledge, Evander is a great guy. Lets just not give him angel wings for making a business deal. Btw, Great post and information!

thank you @stan! great info, I found bitshares interesting but with a face like this next to it it should get some attention for sure! :) keep up the writing - we appreciate <3

Woww, that's something lokk good, did BTS hit $1?

wow. that is so cool. evander holyfield has always been a big star to me. one of my fav

I like Evander a lot but I don't know if it is a good idea that celebrieties or people from sport are promoting crypto. One side is good that more people will know about that but second side is that he has knowleage about this to explain people this subject? THis are my loose thoughts. No offence

Ohhh yyea baby Bitshares :D

I had a chance to meet Holyfield a few years back. He is a stand up guy. I love starting my New Years with good news.

Excellet work! Love this guy and think this is good for BTS. People need to know about it :) Upvoted and following u :)

Wow, this is great! I saw the updated Bitshares State of the Network post and was like, what is this?

Wow! Good for Evander! The more celebrities taking action like this will really make a change in a lot of ways! Go Evander! Go Crypto! #boxingforbits

SO BAST POST.................

so sad to see the depths that Stan and Hollyfield choose to fall to in putting their names+reputations to this scam, thus causing more innocent people to invest and lose all their money...

Guys, if you haven't worked it out already - AriseBank + Arisecoin is a total 100% scam. Just google AriseBank scam and spend 10 minutes of research (especially if you have any thoughts whatsoever of actually investing in their ICO).

Here's some articles demonstrating that it's a scam - it's easy to confirm for yourself that it's truly a scam by double-checking some of the points in these articles:



I'm linking to articles on medium, as it seems like on steemit, they're not so easily to be found, maybe because perhaps voices highlighting that it's a scam get somewhat silenced here? i.e.: https://steemit.com/bitshares/@clockwork/more-proof-arisebank-is-a-scam - also not a great look for steemit in my opinon, but I haven't looked into this side of it in depth, so I don't want to claim anything about the state of steemit here, it's just a side-note observation that this is a little curious ...

You can also simply google 'jared rice and stanley ford' to read about Jared Rice's pat scams - Jared Rice is the guy behind Arise Bank.

If, despite all the evidence, it's not a scam, I'd love to see @stan or someone illustrate why - all I've seen so far in response to various posts highlighting the clear evidence that it's a scam is more FUD (or simply downvoting it appears).

Wishing him the best in his quest to raise a billion dollars, this is a quest for a good cause and my prayers is with him.

Nice for new job Evander

Amazing!!....Can relate to this.:) thanks for sharing @bluerocktalk

excellent, awesome, great.....................................

I love it when big name atheletes and star lend their name and personalities to causes like this. It shows they're still people and care for others.

Happy new year everyone

😂😂😂 Bit(ear)shares... Tyson joins monero?

Nice post @stan. I upvote your post cause I like this.tq

Happy New Year 2018
If it didn't bring you joy
just leave it behind
Let's ring in the new year
with good thing in mind....

Let every bad memory
That brought heartache and pain
And let's turn new leaf
with the smell of new rain...

Let's forget past mistakes
Making amends for this year
sending you these greetings
to bring you hope and cheer

Thank you for being one of the people
who made this world a wonderful place to live in.
I pray that you’ll be blessed with good health, security, success, peace and joy.
Happy New Year 2018 to @stan and your family
