Winklevoss Twins are Big in Bitcoins

The virtual currency Bitcoin is making big waves these days. After a huge rally the Bitcoin has hit an all time high of over $266. Then yesterday it dropped by about 50%. The Winklevoss Twins are not moved by this crazy volatility and actually bought more. According to New York Times, the Winklevii own about Bitcoins at the value of $11 million.

Bitcoin was created by an anonymous Japanese person or group. To earn Bitcoins you need to solve mathematical riddles. Bitcoins can be traded on several exchanges.

If Bitcoin really will the future government independent currency remains to be seen. I am pretty sure that governments will step in when Bitcoin reaches a size that it will really compete with traditional currencies.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
