A few days ago, news broke that the Winklevoss brothers had lodged a court case against Charlie Shrem. The billionaire twins, who earned their billionaire status courtesy of the Bitcoin boom, have been very much in the news lately. They’re among the various people and influential entities that have been pushing for a Bitcoin ETF. The two are the founders of the Gemini exchange.
On the other hand, Charlie Shrem is known as one of the early adopters of Bitcoin and the founder of BitStamp, a crypto exchange that is now non-operational. Charlie is an ex-convict, having served a year in prison after he was convicted of aiding criminals who used Bitcoin to trade drugs and guns on the dark web back in 2014.
