Bitcoin has been causing quite a bit of fuss in the last few days and it reached a value of nearly $12,000. This rise has attracted many famous investors as well as less experienced ones.
The Telegraph announces that the Winklevoss brothers, who became famous for accusing Mark Zuckerberg of stealing their idea for Facebook, are now the world’s first bitcoin billionaires. Their “problems” with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook ended back in 2011 when the brothers accepted a settlement from Facebook earning them $20 million in cash and $45 million in Facebook shares.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss said that in 2013 they owned $11 million worth of bitcoins. Business Insider says that their investment is now worth more than $1 billion.
Bitcoin has attracted a lot of attention from investors and even from stock markets. Some sources claim that two currency exchange houses will list Bitcoin futures on Nasdaq.
