You may remember the Winklevoss brothers from their war with Mark Zuckerberg over Facebook. Well, Cameron and Tyler are back and on a crusade to fully support the virtual currency, Bitcoin.
The value of the cyber currency fell by more than half in 2014 but the Winklevoss’ believe that its market capitalization may explode reaching $400 billion.
"If Bitcoin is a better gold or seen as a type of gold-like asset, then it could be in the trillions on a market cap," Tyler Winklevoss said to CNNMoney. "We do feel those are very real possibilities."
Seeing the market cap reach $1 trillion is tough to imagine considering Bitcoin's current market cap is under $4 billion.
Bitcoin could fizzle out completely and Jeffrey Gundlach, the "bond king," said that the currency is "on its way to being relegated to the ash heap of digital currencies."
In 2013, Bitcoin reached its highest value at $1,200 for one versus its recent value of $265.
"People get fixated on the cost," Cameron Winklevoss said. "It's going to have lots of gyrations, but it's new and you have to bare with it."
In order to assist the cyber currency through its slump, the Winklevoss’ have developed a Bitcoin exchange for American customers called Gemini. The twins are aiming high with hopes that it will grow becoming the "Nasdaq of Bitcoin."
"If you like gold, there are many reasons you should like Bitcoin," said Cameron Winklevoss.
The currency is being used throughout various markets including online gambling. A new online casino, Miami Vice, focused on the use of Bitcoins just launched but one thing is for sure, Bitcoin has quite a ways to go to catch up to the value of gold.
