Bitcoin had given the idea of digital currency after its creation in 2008. From the day of its birth to the current date, it has made unlimited millionaires and few billionaires. The crypto community will soon see a movie narrating the story of Winklevoss twins on cinemas’ screens.

According to the report, the upcoming film is the result of the collaboration between Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and Greg Silverman of Stampede Ventures.
“I have known Cameron and Tyler for years. Last summer my son, Caleb, was fortunate enough to intern at Winklevoss Capital and the twins shared an early copy of Bitcoin Billionaires with him. Caleb and I traded the book back and forth on a summer trip, devouring it in a couple of days. Upon finishing it, it was clear to both of us that Cameron and Tyler’s remarkable redemption story, coupled with Ben’s masterful writing, would lend itself to a one of a kind movie, Silverman explained how he got the idea of the movie.
Winklevoss twins said:
“Whether you are a longtime HODLer or have just arrived, we think you will enjoy the colorful, frontier days of the cryptocurrency revolution that Ben Mezrich has deftly captured in Bitcoin Billionaires. We look forward to sharing this story and bringing the early days of this revolution to theaters in partnership with Stampede Ventures.”
