The Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler, turned the proceeds from a legal settlement over the origins of Facebook into a billion-dollar Bitcoin investment. Since becoming incredibly wealthy on their early virtual money bets, the Winklevoss twins have emerged as elder statesmen for cryptocurrency. Winklevoss Capital has become one of the most influential crypto funds, and the brothers have worked tirelessly to persuade regulators to permit the first bitcoin ETF (a task still unfulfilled for now). They also run one of the top digital asset exchanges, Gemini.
