Winklevoss brothers top Forbes Bitcoin billionaires list

Forbes has named this latest cryptocurrency rally's six biggest winners, including the Winklevoss brothers and Matthew Roszak of Bloq.

Gemini co-founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have been featured by major business magazine Forbes as the richest Bitcoin billionaires.

The ranking, compiled by Forbes crypto-focused reporter Michael del Castillo, provided a list of Bitcoin investors who profit the most from the huge rally in Bitcoin in early January to $42,000.

The ranking includes three Bitcoin investors, including the Winklevoss brothers, major industry investor Tim Draper, and Matthew Roszak, chairman and co-founder of blockchain firm Bloq, with an approximate crypto net worth over $1 billion. With an estimated cryptocurrency net worth of about $1.4 billion each, the twins topped the list.

As cointelegraph.com reported, three additional crypto investors are also included in the list: CEO Michael Saylor of MicroStrategy, founder and CEO Mike Novogratz of Galaxy Digital, and co-founder Vitalik Buterin of Ethereum. Saylor’s crypto fortune amounts to $600 million, according to Forbes reports, while Novogratz and Buterin’s crypto net values stand at $478 million and $360 million, respectively.

According to the analyst, at least five billionaires were created by the Bitcoin bull run, and “possibly quite a few more.” Castillo said the rankings are based on digital wallet data open to the public.  “Using everything from publicly available digital wallets to old-fashioned reporting, we set out to identify some of the biggest winners of this latest crypto boom,” he said.
