“Bitcoin is the answer, it’s the only hedge or vaccine to give you immunity to the disease of money printing.”— Tyler WinklevossLocation: ZoomDate: Monday 18th MayProject: GeminiRole: Co-FoundersThe Social Network, directed by David Fincher, introduced Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss to the world. The film told the story of how Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea to create Facebook, and would later settle for $65 million.After settling the court case and retiring from their careers in rowing, where the twins represented the USA in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, they started a fund and discovered Bitcoin. In 2014 they created Gemini, now one of the largest regulated cryptocurrency exchanges.The film portrayed the twins as cliche sporting jocks, an image which has been hard to shake off. Cameron and Tyler are more at home building things and their success since Harvard is not luck.My picture of the twins, like most, was created from the Social Network and their appearances on mainstream news discussing finance, but I wanted to know more about them. This interview is, therefore, the interview I have wanted to hear from them. We discuss The Social Network, Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, how they discovered Bitcoin, regulations and the role of Wall Street.This episode’s sponsors:Kraken - The best place to buy, sell & trade BitcoinBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial servicesCointracker - Bitcoin taxes and portfolio managerSportsbet.io - Online sportsbook & casino that accepts Bitcoin-----WBD225 Show Notes: https://www.whatbitcoindid.com/podcast/bitcoin-is-the-answer-with-cameron-tyler-winklevoss-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show my doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: Bitcoin | Ethereum | Litecoin | Monero | ZCash | RipplecoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, founders of the cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, discuss the future of money with Bitcoin Billionaires author Ben Mezrich and the Wall Street Journal's Paul Vigna. The conversation was recorded on July 9, 2019 in front of a live audience at New York's 92nd Street Y.
Bloomberg Opinion columnist Barry Ritholtz interviews Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the co-founders of cryptocurrency exchange Gemini. The duo received a multimillion-dollar settlement in 2008 after claiming Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for a social-networking website. 
Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, CEO and President, respectively, of cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, talk about the importance of regulation in a sector once associated in popular culture with illicit activity. The twin brothers, who were the first to file with the SEC for a Bitcoin ETF, recount how they went from competing in the Olympics to launching a cryptocurrency company, explain why they believe private blockchains are really just distributed databases, and discuss why we've seen so many hacks of Bitcoin exchanges. They also touch on an emerging trend, app-coins or new cryptographic tokens being used to run, say, peer-to-peer versions of Dropbox or Reddit.
