In 2004, the Winklevoss brothers sued Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, claiming he stole their ConnectU idea to create the popular social networking site, and ultimately received $65 million. The Winklevoss twins own one of the largest portfolios of Bitcoin in the world. When the Winklevoss’s invested in Bitcoins, the currency was trading at just $120. The digital currency has surged almost 10,000 per cent They later argued it was “better than gold”. The brothers have not sold a single one of their Bitcoins, watching them accruing value. As the most widely traded “cryptocurrency”, bitcoin exists only as strings of computer code but concern over its extreme volatility has not slowed its rapid rise.
