    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.

By 2015, they had risen to “just” $890. Last year they went to $20,000 each. Thanks, Santa! They’re back down to about $3,900 as of the end of December 2018, but you won’t hear me complaining.
