Learn a little about the Winklevoss twins
As an important fact, the American twins became known around the world at the end of 2009. For suing Mark Zuckerberg, claiming that the founder of Facebook had stolen their idea.
Therefore, they asked for more than $ 100 million in compensation. Arguing that, while both were studying at Harvard University, they thought about creating a social network for the university and for this they hired Zuckerberg.
On the contrary, the brothers did not achieve that amount. But they did accept in 2011, a deal that was closed with a hefty sum of $ 65 million. And in 2013, they decided to invest $ 11 million in Bitcoins.
“I want to buy all the Bitcoins”
