CBS interviewed the bitcoin rich Winklevoss twins.

Sunday morning millions of Americans were exposed to bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies when television channel CBS interviewed Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss about crypto in general, and their crypto exchange Gemini in particular.

The Winklevoss twins first became famous when they sued their former fellow student Mark Zuckerberg over the creation of Facebook, but since then they have both earned big money on bitcoin. According to Forbes their net worth is around $600-700 million each.

The twins crypto exchange, Gemini, got a spike of interest after the airing, and is approaching the top 20 in the finance category on the US App Store, writes News BTC.

This is not the first time CBS is paying attention to crypto. This spring the prestigious program 60 Minutes aired a feature on bitcoin, which Trijo News wrote about.
