Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss believe the cryptocurrency revolution has the potential to re-architect trade, the financial system, the Internet, and the future of money as we know it. But they also know it won’t be easy and will require a thoughtful, rules-based approach. A lot has changed since Cameron and Tyler first got involved with bitcoin in 2012: Gemini, the regulated cryptocurrency exchange and custodian they launched in 2015, recently passed its three-year operating anniversary and hit many milestones in 2018.
During their Featured Session at SXSW 2019, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, Co-founders of the cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, spoke about the start of their careers in the early days of cryptocurrencies – or as they refer to it, the “wild west of crypto.” They believe the cryptocurrency revolution has the potential to re-architect trade, the financial system, the Internet, and the future of money as we know it, but the first step to getting there is implementing more regulation to remove bad actors and building trustworthy platforms.
