Ben Mezrich’s 2009 best seller The Accidental Billionaires is the
definitive account offounding - and the basis for the Academy
Award-winning film The Social Network. Two of the story’s iconic
characters are Harvard students Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss:
identical twins, Olympic rowers, and legal foils to Mark Zuckerberg.
Bitcoin Billionaires is the story of the brothers’ redemption and
revenge in the wake of their epic legal battle with- and the first
great audiobook from the world of bitcoin.
Planning to start careers as venture capitalists, the brothers quickly
discover that no one will take their money for fear of alienating
Zuckerberg. While nursing their wounds in Ibiza, they accidentally run
into a shady character who tells them about a brand-new idea:
Immersing themselves in what is then an obscure and sometimes sinister
world, they begin to realise ‘crypto’ is, in their own words, ‘either
the next big thing or total bulls–t.’ There’s nothing left to do but
make a bet.
>From the Silk Road to the halls of the Securities and Exchange
Commission to theboardroom, Bitcoin Billionaires will take us on a
wild and surprising ride while illuminating a tantalising economic
future. On November 26th, 2017, the Winklevoss brothers became the
first bitcoin billionaires. Here’s the story of how they got there -
as only Ben Mezrich could tell it.
