The twins, the first prominent figures in the largely anonymous bitcoin world to publicly disclose a big stake, say they own nearly $11 million worth. Or at least $11 million as of Thursday morning — when trading was temporarily suspended after the latest and largest flash crash left a single bitcoin worth about $120.
Guess the people who had 11 millions in the first place can finally have even more. Surely, they are paying taxes, too .TIL the Winklevoss brothers owned 11 million USD worth of bitcoins in 2013 when the rate was $120/₿.
They must have 420 times their investment, so 4.6 billion USD worth of ₿ now with the current rate ($50,500/₿).
You know, these are the twin brothers who were Harvard classmates with Zuckerberg, and also Olympic rowers for the USA.
Silicon Valley and Wall Street are taking note of bitcoin, which has drawn prominent investors like the Winklevoss twins.dealbook.nytimes.com
What is funny is that it was my thought as well the first time I watched the video: the dog was asking for her to adopt it. Actually, once you know the drill, it is funny because you know that the dog is only asking for her to stay in her car while it rains, or for her to drive it back home so that it does not walk in the mud and it does not get wet. What an initial misunderstanding!The dog has chosen a new owner.
