The Winklevoss Twins Have Mark Zuckerberg in Their Sights

Winklevoss twins become bitcoin billionaires

Bitcoin billionaires: Winklevoss twins' $11m bet on digital currency is now worth $1 billion

The twin brothers who claim Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for Facebook are now Bitcoin billionaires.

This year will be the most unbelievable year for Bitcoin, the digital coin that employs impressive coding techniques to verify the transfer of funds.

The Winklevoss twins are now officially Bitcoin billionaires.

The two former Olympic rowers disclosed in 2013 that they owned $11 million worth of bitcoin.

The Winklevoss twins now have an undisputed achievement to their name.

The meteoric rise of Bitcoin over the last few months has been simply unbelievable.

The digital currency retraced some of its gains on Sunday after hitting the peak. Despite sharp falls in prices recorded last week, the cryptocurrency appears to have rallied over the weekend. They later also spent nearly $1 million to buy more bitcoin later in 2013, right after Silk Road, an illicit marketplace on the so-called dark web, was seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The potential for war is increasing every day but armed conflict is not the only solution, he told a defence forum. In September, it conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.

The astonishing rise of Winklevoss twins comes on the back of astronomical rise of Bitcoins.

Still, the twins themselves have noted that older Bitcoin aficionados probably have larger holdings.

The big question now is if there's any more room left for Bitcoin to grow.

However, it seems Bitcoin's vast popularity is slowly gaining traction among private entities and financial regulators.

In August, Tyler Winklevoss stated that Gemini and his partners are focused on providing liquidity and a trading platform for institutional and retail investors.

The Winklevii's bitcoin wallet is among a very small handful to have reached the billion-dollar mark, according to The Telegraph, one of the others being the currency's mysterious inventor Satoshi Nakamoto. This is the clearest indication that professional investors are looking at Bitcoin as a serious investment asset.
