    During the ascension of the social media platform in the early decade of the 2000s, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss were engaged in a high profile legal battle with Zuckerberg over who had come up with the idea for Facebook.

    That bitter conflict eventually led to a US$65 million settlement between Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss twins. The real life drama would also spawn the David Fincher film known as The Social Network which starred Armie Hammer as the Winklevoss twins (he played both).

    Fast forward to the present day and the Winklevoss twins aren’t just bonafide Olympic rowers, but also internet entrepreneurs who just became the world’s first Bitcoin billionaires.
