The Winklevoss Billionaire Story 

The “Bitcoin Billionaire” movie will continue the story of how the brothers risked everything, investing $11 million in Bitcoin back in 2013. They eventually became the world’s first Bitcoin billionaires afterwards.

The movie will be a follow up of the “Accidental Billionaires”, who fought a legal case against Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook to claim their rights over Facebook, which was originally their idea. 

A court ruling back then in 2011 awarded the brothers $65 million settlement for their claims. After which they invested about $11 million in Bitcoin in 2013 hence the book “Accidental Billionaires.”

“The book has been translated into 12 languages.”

Silverman said that he had known about the billionaire twins for years but was opportuned to have a copy of the book, “Bitcoin Billionaire”, from his son Caleb who happened to do an intern at the Winkelvoss Capital. 

“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.”
