Bitcoin Billionaires’ Push to Radically Transform Global Finance Revealed in ‘Genius, Betrayal, and Redemption’

dailyhodl

3mon ago

The Winklevoss twins Tyler and Cameron are back in another tech tale of revolutionary ideas that rock the status quo and reshape big business. After betting big on crypto, the Harvard-educated brothers have made a fortune. On November 26, 2017, during Bitcoin’s last great bull run, the Winklevii were anointed the first Bitcoin billionaires.

Bitcoin Billionaires: A True Story of Genius, Betrayal, and Redemption is a new book by Ben Mezrich, author of the New York Times bestseller Accidental Billionaires, which was adapted for the big screen and rebranded in 2010 as David Fincher’s Academy Award-winning film The Social Network.

In his latest book, a loose sequel to the Facebook tale, Mezrich picks up on the story of the Winklevoss twins. It’s been several years since the chronicling. In their past: a mega battle with Facebook and their former classmate Mark Zuckerburg – along with a cash settlement and Facebook shares topping $200 million.

After hearing about Bitcoin in 2012, they launched cryptocurrency exchange Gemini in 2014. In their future: a leading crypto platform that has a hand in reshaping money and finance around the globe.

The last time @benmezrich wrote about a technology revolution that many dismissed it as a fad…well we know what happened. His latest book #BitcoinBillionaires covers the early days of Bitcoin and the crypto revolution. Bullish! https://t.co/31FPDA7g9V

The tale of Bitcoin has a 10-year history that includes computer scientists, mathematicians, cyberpunks, libertarians, the dark web, the SEC, prison time, venture capitalists, failed entrepreneurs and tech-savvy Millennials.

Writes G. Gilder on Amazon,

“We get the sore pathos of the saga of Charlie Shrem of BitInstant, the twins’ first bitcoin investment, who ends up in jail for two years for email foibles and clerical oversights that linked his customers to the Silk Road dark web drug fiasco. Money laundering, what ever that may be. We get vivid vignettes of Roger Ver, ‘Bitcoin Jesus,’ also a money blaspheming felon, and Ross Ulbricht, off to jail forever for Silk Road.”
