Winklevoss twins consider Libra joining

Posted 21 August, 2019

The famous crypto twins Cameron and Tayler Winklevoss consider possible joining the Libra Association. The plans were unveiled during the interview to CNN Business.

According to the founders of cryptocurrency platform Gemini, they hope that the previous conflict with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg would not hamper their joining for potentially winning cooperation.

"Facebook was a dispute, but it didn't really 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," said Tyler Winklevoss.

The decision on membership to the Libra Association is yet to be made, the twins believe that the Libra seems to be a promising asset that may promote the development of the crypto sector in the whole. Gemini’s founders agreed that it was hard to fall on deaf ears when Facebook had made an announcement about the Libra project.

Notably, the partnership with the Winklevoss twins can be a catch for Mark Zuckerberg especially since Gemini is actively cooperating with the US financial authorities, while Libra is under heavy regulatory pressure.

However, Cameron and Tayler Winklevoss want to study the project more detailed and only then decide whether list Libra on Gemini.

For reference, the Libra Association comprises 28 companies and non-commercial organizations.
