Winklevoss Twins Become First Bitcoin Billionaires With ...

Bitcoin First Billionaire: Winklevoss Twins

During the ascension of the social media platform in the early decade of the 2000s, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss were engaged in a high profile legal battle with Zuckerberg over who had come up with the idea for Facebook.

That bitter conflict eventually led to a US$65 million settlement between Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss twins. The real life drama would also spawn the David Fincher film known as The Social Network which starred Armie Hammer as the Winklevoss twins (he played both).

Fast forward to the present day and the Winklevoss twins aren’t just bonafide Olympic rowers, but also internet entrepreneurs who just became the world’s first Bitcoin billionaires.

Mark Zuckerberg: You have the least amount of attention from me. My mind is thinking about poking people using RESTful API in PHP. We end this today and I win. Lawyer 1: Ok we have a settlement of 100 million dollars to both Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. Lawyer 2: Our usual fee of 15% plus expenses should make this a done deal. Cameron: You're not the man I thought you'd be Mark. Tyler: Let's go.
Act Two It's 2012 and Winklevosses are searching for motivation to compete in the technology sector. The financial world is doing well but it seems boring. Tyler: Mark sold everyone's privacy. We shouldn't have accepted his money. Cameron: We're Harvard men. We can bring economic freedom to the world. Tyler: Facebook IPO is going to make investors millions maybe even billions. Cameron: Billion isn't cool, you know what's cool? Tyler: 100 billion? Cameron: Quadrillion Tyler: You mean Bitcoin. Let's invest some of that money on a system that will change the world. Cameron: I truly believe this will work. We can get 100 000 BTC right now.
Act Three It's 2017 and Bitcoin has gained popularity but mainstream still thinks it's a bubble. Quiet day at the offices of Winklevoss Capital Management is about to become chaotic.
Cameron: Reddit is reporting that security researchers at Greendale Institute of Technology have found a way to factor Rijndael keys in 253 bits. Tyler: This could lead to a death spiral for Bitcoin. Tyler: FBI is dumping their coins! The market can't handle this pressure. Cameron: SEC sent a letter for further inquiry on the ETF! Tyler: IRS is saying that we owe taxes on the BTC we bought on the basis of VAT ACT of 2016! Cameron: We're going to have to sell our Olympic rowing canoe to cover the cost. Tyler: :(
It's February 2017 and Youtube's most popular video of all time is about to be released. Satoshi Nakamoto: Hello everyone. I'm here to explain my reasons for making Bitcoin and staying away for so long. You see I had this murder mystery in Sweden that seemed really interesting. The block reward is about to halve to 12.5 BTC and I'm taking over the development of the Bitcoin protocol for as long as I have the capacity to do so.
Cameron: BTC/USD just crossed over $50 million. Tyler: Whats Facebook worth these days? Cameron: It's around 330 billion dollars. Tyler: Do you want to buy it?
