Winklevoss twins can see Bitcoin becoming a country’s currency

City A.M. Reporter
CAMERON and Tyler Winklevoss, currently making headlines with plans to launch a Bitcoin fund, claimed yesterday that they could see the digital currency becoming a country’s official money.

“The next step for Bitcoin is potentially becoming the currency of a country,” Tyler Winklevoss said. The twin brothers, famous for their history with Facebook, were speaking at the 9th annual Value Investing Congress in New York.

Speaking less than three months after filing plans to launch the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust, an exchange traded fund that would allow investors to trade the digital currency like stocks, the brothers laid out a primer on Bitcoin and spoke about what might be next for the currency. They added that they expect to see a financial implosion in Cyprus in the next year or two.
