The Winklevoss twins have become billionaires thanks to Bitcoin

In 2013, Cameron and Taylor(The Winklevoss twins) decided to invest $ 11 million in the Bitcoin, where they bought a single bitcoin for $ 120 and have not sold anything yet, making them billionaires for the surprising rise of the Bitcoin value.

According to the Verge website, Cameron and Taylor now have a $ 1 billion portfolio in their portfolio of Bitcoin, due to the surprising price of this year’s Bitcoin, which now has more than $ 14,000. [wp_ad_camp_3]

The twins invested $ 11 million after they received $ 65 million in compensation after they prosecuted Mark Zuckerberg in 2011 and alleged that he stole the Facebook social networking idea when they were all students at Harvard University.

The twins wanted to expand more in the field of Bitcoin and not just sit and control the accumulation of their wealth by creating a Bitcoin BTF, but they failed as the Securities and Exchange Commission rejected their request for possible fraud.
