    Winklevoss twins end lawsuit against Charlie Shrem

    The case, over the alleged theft of 5,000 bitcoins, has ended with no damages

    Charlie Shrem has come out on top of his legal dispute with Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss. Two months after Winklevoss Capital Fund was ordered to pay Shrem $45,000 in court fees after a federal judge overturned an order freezing more than $30 million of Shrem’s assets, the case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning it cannot be refiled. Both sides agreed to pay their own costs as part of the agreement.
