Winklevoss Twins Are Bitcoin Moguls

Fake businessmen, meet fake currency. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the twins made famous by Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network, are back in the news for having amassed a fortune in the online currency Bitcoin. In the past year, the brothers, most famous for unsuccessfully suing Mark Zuckerberg for his Facebook fortunes, have built one of the largest stockpiles of the e-currency, amounting to roughly $11 million. As a result of Bitcoin’s success (and despite a recent spate of negative press), other investors like venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz are now investing in their own digital currencies.
