Cameron Winklevoss claims Bitcoin might hit $40,000 per coin

The Winklevoss twins — Cameron and Tyler — are perhaps best known as Olympic rowers for the U.S. and their long and painful lawsuit against Facebook, in which they claimed Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for the site. The brothers are also huge Bitcoin enthusiasts, and now Cameron Winklevoss has taken to Reddit to chat a bit about the cryptocurrency, revealing some of his predictions for its future value and the reasons behind his enthusiasm for Bitcoin.

Cameron Winklevoss, one half of the notorious twin brothers who once battled Mark Zuckerberg over the origin of Facebook, took to Reddit to host an AMA this weekend to discuss the duo’s big interest: Bitcoin. The Winklevoss twins were early Bitcoin advocates but have never revealed their total holding — though it was said to be worth $11 million in April, when the crypto-currency peaked at $266. Given today’s price ($875 average on Mt. Gox, at the timing of writing) and Cameron’s admission that he is yet to sell a single Bitcoin, it could now be worth as much as $35 million.
