Cryptocurrency Heralds Something Greater Than Facebook Winklevoss Twins

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, Bitcoin (BTC) bulls and founders of the Gemini crypto exchange, say that while Facebook's secret crypto project is positive for the industry, ultimately crypto will bring in something greater than the social networking era.

The case was finally settled, with twins receiving $ 20 million and 1.2 million Facebook shares (worth over $ 199.2 million to press time).

Years after the Winklevoss twins' first entry into Bitcoin, Zuckerberg is now seemingly entering the crypto space with Facebook's own highly secretive project to integrate crypto stablecoin payments into an overarching messaging service for WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram.

In their interview with The Telegraph, the twins put past differences apart, with Cameron affirming that a Facebook stablecoin would be a "really positive" development for the crypto industry, echoed by Taylor's comment that it is "cool" Zuckerberg is entering the market they have championed for so long.

However, the twins finally concluded that the innovation that cryptography has announced represents an important and hindering development from the social media platform.

Cameron emphasized that "the crypto conveys value and places markets on some resources, more importantly, more and more people love, likes, like sharing pictures," Tyler added:

"[It is] powerful. People want to make connections and make connections, but if you pay people and valuables, that's more important."
