How can we be sure you're not Tyler Winklevoss?

You can't. Sometimes I'm not even sure.
axelindian1084 karma2013-12-15 04:57:56 UTC
So, do you have a facebook account?

1) The Silk Road closure, and resulting price gains demonstrate how the demand for BTC has little to do with illicit transactions. If anything, Silk Road was holding Bitcoin back by disproportionately dominating its narrative in a negative way.
2) It is estimated that the volume of bitcoin transacted on Silk Road only represented ~4% of the total volume of bitcoins transacted on the Block chain over the same period of time.
3) Interesting, but I don't think they solve any "problems" that Bitcoin can't address itself.
4) Volatility will decrease as Bitcoin matures and regulatory landscape becomes clearer.

Have you sold any of your bitcoin?
winky_pop780 karma2013-12-15 02:58:03 UTC
I have yet to sell a single bitcoin.

You know what's cool?
winky_pop855 karma2013-12-15 04:11:15 UTC
A single bitcoin.

Thank you for taking the time for this AMA.
Where do you see Bitcoin in the future? How will it remain a viable currency?
winky_pop354 karma2013-12-15 02:40:27 UTC
small bull case scenario for Bitcoin is a 400 billion USD dollar market cap, so 40,000 USD a coin, but I believe it could be much larger. When this will happen, if it happens, I don't know, but if it happens, it will probably happen much faster than anyone imagines.

I just started rowing for my college, any tips?
winky_pop762 karma2013-12-15 04:08:13 UTC
One of best ways to get gains is 90min steady state 3-6 times a week, HR @ ~150 BPM (75% of 220 minus your age)

Do you ever wish Pacific Rim was real?
winky_pop583 karma2013-12-15 04:50:01 UTC
Yes. Tyler and I would be be able to drift in Jaegers and beat down on Kaijus. Is that you Eli?

What has been the most defining experience you have had to date?
winky_pop751 karma2013-12-15 02:41:53 UTC
So far, I would say rowing in the Olympic Games for the USA.
mwilcox227 karma2013-12-15 03:19:27 UTC
iPhone or Android?
winky_pop677 karma2013-12-15 03:56:01 UTC
Both, however, Android is much more Bitcoin friendly.
BuyAllTheCoins138 karma2013-12-15 02:25:23 UTC
Do you believe in BTC as a currency or only as a speculative vehicle?
winky_pop246 karma2013-12-15 02:45:05 UTC
I view Bitcoin as commodity money.
LiquidWaffle131 karma2013-12-15 02:24:25 UTC
What did you think of your portrayal in the Simpsons? Would you be a guest star if given the opportunity?
winky_pop364 karma2013-12-15 03:13:56 UTC
Huge fan of the show, but didn't feel our portrayal was particularly clever, a missed opportunity for them but flattered nonetheless.

Love them both!

Dining with Harry Potter.

Thanks for taking the time to do this AMA. Do you have any good resources for learning the ins-and-outs of Bitcoin?
winky_pop263 karma2013-12-15 03:02:32 UTC
http://trybtc.com is a good starting point for setting up a wallet, etc. http://thegenesisblock.com is an incredible resource.

Are you actively trading your bitcoin or are you just holding on to them?
Do you think you can really predict price movements?
winky_pop275 karma2013-12-15 04:16:02 UTC
Holding, Spartans hold. No, my crystal ball is broken ATM.

Do you think the unequal distribution of bitcoin / big gains of early adopters will be a deterrent in a more widespread adoption of bitcoins?
winky_pop163 karma2013-12-15 03:01:10 UTC
No. Early adopters get bigger gains (as they should) because they take on bigger risk. A bitcoin can be divided into 100 million pieces, so I don't see divisibility or distribution as a problem.
groovybear73 karma2013-12-15 03:57:46 UTC
Hi Cameron, I feel like watching a movie right now. Do you have any suggestions of what I should watch?
winky_pop253 karma2013-12-15 04:12:54 UTC
Toy Story 1,2,3. (A did this marathon earlier today).
parrotsnest63 karma2013-12-15 05:47:01 UTC

No, but you can be Tyler.

Biggest regret outside of anything facebook related?
winky_pop262 karma2013-12-15 04:33:00 UTC
That I haven't formed a band yet.
davie1846 karma2013-12-15 02:22:09 UTC
Do you see BTC 'replacing' currencies we have today, or being used alongside them?
Have you invested in any altcoins, if so, which and why?
winky_pop142 karma2013-12-15 02:27:58 UTC
I view BTC more as an alternative to fiat currencies than a replacement.
I have not invested in any altcoins because I don't believe that any of the "problems" or issues that they address can't be addressed by Bitcoin itself.
fofoo3343 karma2013-12-15 04:21:09 UTC
I understand that your ETF is only available to accredited investors. Why? Was this a decision on your part, or an SEC rule?
Are you planning on opening it up to all people, not only accredited investors?
winky_pop94 karma2013-12-15 04:29:09 UTC
Due to gun-jumping rules I can't speak about the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust, however, ETP's and ETF's are NOT exclusive to accredited investors, any investor can purchase shares.

Considering your huge position in bitcoin and the huge volatility of the price, how does it feel riding the massive swings?
winky_pop97 karma2013-12-15 04:32:14 UTC
Some days I don't even look at the price. I'm in this for the long-haul. Spartans hold.
