A few years ago, the twins Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss brought a lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg and accused him of stealing the idea of creating the Facebook social network.

The Winklevoss brothers received $66 million settlement from this case.

With the amount of approximately $11 million, in 2013 the twins bought around 100,000 bitcoins when the cost of a single bitcoin was USD 120.

In 2017, the growth of the bitcoin was enormous, and since the beginning of last year, the price of the cryptocurrency has increased more than 10 times.

The Bitcoin course is now at more than $ 11,500, and this means that this has increased the wealth of the Winklevoss twins 100 times, so the Winklevoss brothers became the world’s first bitcoin billionaire.
