Winklevoss Twins Look To Boost Bitcoin Awareness With New “Bitcoin Billionaires Photo Challenge”
After a successful “Spot the Gemini Crypto Bus”, the Winklevoss twins –Tyler and Cameron – have launched the #BitcoinBillionaires photo challenge to run for a week.
The Winklevoss twins are back in the spotlight following the increased debates on Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency and Bitcoin’s recent fall in price. As the crypto fever hits the U.S Congress and the citizens, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are aiming to use the opportunity to increase the Bitcoin adoption rates across the globe with their latest competition that will reward the winner with 1 BTC, currently trading at $9498 USD.
With the volatile state of BTC at the moment, this price may increase significantly before the end of the competition on July 24th 2019.

Proof Of Winning: Former Competition Winner Increased BTC Value By 50%+
In a competition labelled, “Gemini Crypto Bus” by the Winklevoss twins in May, participators were expected to spot the touring bus and take a pic for a similar winning fee of 1 BTC. However, the price of BTC then lingered around the $5,700 USD price and by the end of the two week long competition, the price had increased by over 50% to $8,800 USD.

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are spending a lot of energy, time and resources to boost the adoption of the pioneer cryptocurrency. The latest competition is expected to increase awareness on Bitcoin despite the Libra bashing from Congress earlier on Tuesday.
The Bitcoin bulls have repeatedly shown their commitment to growing the cryptocurrency field. Cameron recently claimed that the Gemini exchange are keeping its options open to dealing with Libra, despite the longstanding strife with Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
