Our favorite investor sat down with the Winklevoss twins today to get a crash course on bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Dave has been a degenerate gambler his whole life and why not take day trading one step further by getting into crypto. Throw is the Bitcoin Billionaire boys and we got ourselves internet gold.
Dave opens the interview letting the twins know he has been an investor in bitcoin for a long time but has no idea what it really is. They briefly start explaining what it is, its origins and how they got into it (while slipping in a shameless plug for their crypto exchange Gemini). Of course they first heard about bitcoin while on a beach in Ibiza and thought it was crazy until some shots of tequila. The Winklevoss twins also admitted they own 1% of all the world’s bitcoin:
Bitcoin Marketcap $213,873,741,525 USD * 1% ownership = $2,138,737,415 USD / 2 Brothers = THREE COMMA CLUB
Some more wild topics were:
The interview is silly and seems like three average dudes that lucked their way into generational wealth. But these three are all arguable geniuses in their own right. It’s kind of cool to see down to earth people gaining this level of pour. The wealthy of the past used their power to prey upon the lower class. These guys just want to gamble and look cool on the internet. Call me naive and call them douchbags, but I would rather have the Winklevosses than the Koch Brothers!
