They invested the amount they got from the Facebook settlement into Bitcoin and they are now running Gemini exchange. I'm not surprised and I'm expecting bitcoin to be the cause of making more billionaires in the future.

If Roger Ver really does have several hundred thousand bitcoins then he would also be a billionaire.

Well, I am a fan of whoever is beciminh big time in cryptocuurencies as long as it was earned in a good way.
And I am guessing that they are rich already when they got in to bitcoins. Since they will need an amount to make profit from.
Congratulations to them though.
I am not aiming to be that rich, I just wanted to fill in the needs of my family and some for their not too much expensive luxury.

Off course the creators hold more bitcoins than anyone else in this whole world.. I don't think that these brothers are really the one's holding most number of bitcoins. It's just that the REAL billionaires are hiding their identity. The creator definetely have had kept some kind lf gateway for themselves as a back door entry. That being said bitcoin still is the safest and a reliable investment asset.

Well, I am not sure if they are Billionaires yet, but they are multi-millionaires. Here are some more people who have reached multi

millionaire status that we know of --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpO3bnccpVM .... We will never have a accurate list of

the richest Bitcoiners out there, because Bitcoin is pseudo anonymous and people have a right to protect their financial status. We

know for sure that Satoshi Nakamoto will be the richest Bitcoiner, IF he/she access the million or more coins in those addresses.  Wink

Wow does it really matter now who owns the more or less bitcoin. I mean the comparison would be ridiculous after seeing 100 thousands bitcoin into one persons possesion. That’s too much money in today’s date and I’m happy that people like these do exist who believed in the ultimate fate of bitcoin and held them for so long. It’s really not a joke to even have 10K bitcoin in our possession because it’s anyway equal to billions with current rate of bitcoin. If they hold the bitcoin for more two to three years then also they will become impossible billionaires in short period of time becaus the price then would be more than 50K itself. :-0

Good for them. At current BCH / BTG valuations, that's more than USD 180,000,000 in fork coins alone.

Yes! Let’s claim this! Who wouldn’t want to be a billionaire right? I agree that more and more will become rich thru Bitcoin. It’s just a matter of time, tons of patience, proper mind set, and making good decisions...

There are people with more bitcoins than the winklevoss brothers, but they are still pretty high in the bitcoin ranks.

I remember back then when they invested $11 million on BTC, then it crashed, everyone made fun of them. Now they are billionaires and they are ones laughing.

Oh and to put things in perspective, Zuckerberg has $70+ billion, so we will still go way higher because it doesn't make sense shitbook is worth more than BTC.

I am not sure whether the Winklevii are the first Bitcoin millionaires. Roger Ver claims that he is having some 250,000 Bitcoins (he may have converted a part of that to BCH). Satoshi owns some 980,000 although no one knows whether he is dead or alive.

well they are running a big bitcoin exchange platform called Gemeni. having that kind of bitcoin capital is not really a big deal unless this amount is 100% separate from their exchange funds.

Does anyone know who the other bitcoin whales are?

Satoshi Nakamoto

possibly lots of early adopters who mined or bought bitcoin like Roger Ver

but we will never know. all of these are guesses unless they provide a signed proof which nobody in his right mind would do that Cheesy

There are probably a few Bitcoin billionaires out there. They aren’t all going to broadcast their wealth which is kind of the point if cryptocurrencies. We don’t want everyone to know what we have and where we have it. Even those of us that aren’t wealthy will most likely have multiple addresses that we use. I’m sure that the millionaires and billionaires have their Bitcoins spread out in different wallets. There’s almost no way to know how many Bitcoins people are holding.

BTC creators I guess. However this information is secret i guess.

They invested the amount they got from the Facebook settlement into Bitcoin and they are now running Gemini exchange. I'm not surprised and I'm expecting bitcoin to be the cause of making more billionaires in the future.
I first came across Winklevoss Twins in 2013 when they invested $11 million of their payout from Facebook into Bitcoin in 2013.
They recently invested $1.5 million in seed funding of BitInstant, a bitcoin payment processor the same year.
They now owned and operate Gemini & Winkdex. I knew these boys are going to become billionaires they are just waiting for the time, trust me! Smiley

Who hold more Bitcoin, the Winklevoss twins or someone else?

News media around the world is reporting that the Winklevoss twins are the world first bitcoin billionaires, stating they own 100,000 bitcoins. Congratulations to them.

Does anyone know who the other bitcoin whales are?

Weren't those bitcoins meant to back their proposed Bitcoin ETF, not just to serve as their personal holdings? Doesn't make much of a difference at this point though, I guess.

Good for them. At current BCH / BTG valuations, that's more than USD 180,000,000 in fork coins alone.


If Roger Ver really does have several hundred thousand bitcoins then he would also be a billionaire.

If he hasn't dumped them for Bitcoin Cash yet, that is.
Well its becoming confusing we need forbes to get a list of top bitcoin HODLers. A whole lot seems to believe the idea of satoshi nakamoto secretly holding around million of bitcoins in his cold storage while the other lot says the jesus of bitcoin Roger Ver is the richest. And now this article seems to give another new idea.

I agree with that but the wallet associated with Satoshi now holding 930,000 bitcoins has not had any bitcoins sent from it. It only ever received so does anyone even have access to it?
