The Winklevoss twins have just become the world’s first bitcoin billionaires. Cameron and Tyler Winklewoss, the identical twins famous for suing Mark Zuckerberg over the ownership of Facebook, have just become bitcoin billionaires. Their action for control of Zuckerberg’s company was unsuccessful, but they were awarded a settlement of $65m in 2008, out of which they used $11m to invest in Bitcoin, according to the Telegraph. In March 2013, they purchased about 100,000 of them, when each coin was worth roughly $120. Following a surge in the value of the crypto-currency this year, that stake in bitcoin is now worth well over $1 billion, making them the world’s first bitcoin billionaires!
