Despite Historic Differences, Winklevoss Twins Are Considering To Join Libra Association
Anyone who knows about the history of Facebook and Winklevoss Twins knows about the highly disputed past and settlement with Zuckerburg. With that in lin min mind, it would be hard to imagine them joining Libra Association.
In an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow, the twins said:
“Facebook was a dispute, but it didn't define who we were as people. Gemini's much more of a representation of who we are, what we stand for, what we're interested in.”
Cam thinks that Facebook is just early to the game and will soon be followed by other tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Netflix. He says:
“I think that internet companies have to have a crypto strategy, and I think a lot of them are thinking about their coin projects. They're probably watching Libra and Facebook to see how that fares as they develop it. Amazon can probably get packages to literally any place in the world, even if the last mile is on a dirt bike or something […] very ironic, that the physical stuff we can move all around the world and we can't get money to a lot of places around the world.”
Facebook has already declared the 28 “founding members” of the association, which even has Gemini competitor Coinbase. However, they have said that they hope to have 100 members by Libra's launch in early 2020. This is when the twins want to join the project.
They even went as far as telling that they are waiting to learn about the project before judging to join the organization or to list Libra on the Gemini exchange. However, the Libra Association hasn't commented about the news.
