Gemini founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are probably the most well-known Bitcoin and cryptocurrency investors in the world and for good reason: according to the New York Times, the two were early acolytes of blockchain-powered currency, having held positions in Bitcoin since 2012 before expanding to other coins and eventually launching the Gemini trading platform in 2015.
As value investors in cryptocurrency technology, they've weathered Bitcoin flash crashes and dips while others folded, demonstrating an unwavering confidence in their conviction that decentralized currency has the power to change the world. "We’ve put our money where our mouth is," Cameron Winklevoss told an audience at Techcrunch's 2015 Disrupt NY conference. "We don’t just have our skin in the game, we have our whole body in the game... I don’t know if we’re experts, but the goal is not to be an expert but to change the world.” Since then, the two have reaped the rewards of holding as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency have proven to have real staying power and applications that exceed conventional ideas of currency as a medium of exchange. To evidence this, a recent survey conducted by Gemini indicates that 64% of adults in the U.S. are "crypto-curious" and plan to buy or learn more about cryptocurrency over the next year.
