About this item
Bitcoin Billionaires is an enthralling tale of the Winklevoss twins' lucrative gamble on cryptocurrency, by New York Times bestselling author Ben Mezrich, acclaimed for Bringing Down the House and The Accidental Billionaires.

Mezrich's book, The Accidental Billionaires, recounts the founding of Facebook and was the source material for the award-winning film, The Social Network. Among its central figures were Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, identical twin brothers and Olympic rowers, who were featured as rivals to Mark Zuckerberg. Bitcoin Billionaires picks up their story after their legal dispute with Facebook and traces their path to redemption and revenge.

After their bitter feud with Zuckerberg, the Winklevosses intended to enter the venture capital industry. But they discovered that their notoriety had preceded them, and they found it impossible to raise money. While vacationing in Ibiza, they stumble upon a quirky individual who introduces them to a groundbreaking concept: digital currency. The twins immerse themselves in the obscure and sometimes shadowy realm of cryptocurrency and realize that it could either be the next big thing or a complete scam. They decide to take a risk.

Bitcoin Billionaires follows their journey from the Silk Road to the offices of the Securities and Exchange Commission, providing a thrilling and unpredictable ride while offering glimpses of a promising economic future. On November 26, 2017, the Winklevoss twins become the first billionaires in the Bitcoin world. This book tells the incredible story of how they achieved that feat, as only Ben Mezrich can tell it.
