Winklevoss Twins Donate $2 Million in Bitcoin to Trump Campaign

Winklevoss Twins Donate $2 Million in Bitcoin to Trump Campaign

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, the twin brothers behind the cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, each donated $1 million worth of Bitcoin to support Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

They announced their contributions via social media, emphasizing Trump’s favorable stance on cryptocurrencies compared to what they perceive as adversarial policies under President Joe Biden’s administration.

The Winklevoss twins, who gained prominence for their legal battles with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg over the creation of the social media platform, underscored Trump’s pro-crypto and pro-business positions.

Their public endorsement comes at a time when the cryptocurrency industry is facing increased regulatory scrutiny, following high-profile bankruptcies and investor losses in recent years.

The Winklevoss twins’ support for Trump underscores their ongoing involvement in both the cryptocurrency sector and U.S. politics. Their donations and public statements highlight the growing efforts of cryptocurrency executives to influence regulatory and political outcomes that directly impact their industry’s future.

This move by the Winklevoss twins not only signals their alignment with Trump’s policies but also positions them as key figures in the intersection of technology, finance, and political advocacy amidst evolving regulatory landscapes.
