The Winklevoss Twins, Cameron, and Tyler Winklevoss, have been quite popular since their college days. They first built HarvardConnection (ConnectU), and since then, they have managed to stay in the news, even though if not for good reasons.
The twins shot to fame during their legal feud with Facebook, and the way it was portrayed made them look, villains. However, the negative publicity never discouraged them, and they continued taking big decisions. One such popular decisions came in 2012 when Bitcoin was touted as the next big thing. The twins bought 1% of the total Bitcoins in circulation at the time, and the rest is history.
Ironically, Facebook, too, is all set to step in the digital currency space. And the twins, once again, are already in it. However, the twins don’t seem to be worried about their bitter rival, Mark Zuckerberg, entering the space in a recent interview, they were asked about Facebook’s foray into cryptocurrencies, and whether it was copying them. The brothers replied,
"We haven’t seen what exactly what their doing, but we aren’t worried. The pie is big enough and is quite different from other markets. At this point in time, we need to be ‘friendimies."
