Description

Ben Mezrich's 2009 best seller The Accidental Billionaires is the definitive account of Facebook's founding - and the basis for the Academy Award-winning film The Social Network. Two of the story's iconic characters are Harvard students Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss: identical twins, Olympic rowers, and legal foils to Mark Zuckerberg. Bitcoin Billionaires is the story of the brothers' redemption and revenge in the wake of their epic legal battle with Facebook - and the first great audiobook from the world of bitcoin. 

Planning to start careers as venture capitalists, the brothers quickly discover that no one will take their money for fear of alienating Zuckerberg. While nursing their wounds in Ibiza, they accidentally run into a shady character who tells them about a brand-new idea: cryptocurrency. 

Immersing themselves in what is then an obscure and sometimes sinister world, they begin to realise 'crypto' is, in their own words, 'either the next big thing or total bulls--t.' There's nothing left to do but make a bet.  

From the Silk Road to the halls of the Securities and Exchange Commission to the Facebook boardroom, Bitcoin Billionaires will take us on a wild and surprising ride while illuminating a tantalising economic future. On November 26th, 2017, the Winklevoss brothers became the first bitcoin billionaires. Here's the story of how they got there - as only Ben Mezrich could tell it.

Underwhelming story

The problem with Bitcoin Billionaires is that it feels like the first half of a full story. There wasn’t any betrayal and overall it seems very sycophantic (even though they’re impressive) about the Winkelvoss twins.

Enjoyable and relevant

An easy read for the crypto educated or the lay man. An honest, accessible story that reads well and puts the puzzle pieces together for those of us who’s primary access to bitcoin information came post 2016.

A nice tale of industry maturity & early adopters

An enjoyable easy listen about the wild west days of crypto & how early adopters such as the Twins have helped bring maturity to the sector. A chance encounter in Ibiza leads to a billion $ valuation..
