Tony Hawk is by far the most famous American skateboarder. His long list of achievements includes landing a 900 for the first time in history, being crowned as the champion at countless events held in Las Vegas, Florida, San Francisco, and so on. He is recognized as the pioneer of skateboarding and has been a bitcoiner for the past 6 years. Till date, he hasn’t lost faith, in spite of BTC being a highly unpredictable and volatile asset. Perhaps this is a key reason why Tony was drawn to it, the digital currency is as energetic as him when he was a teenager.
