I don't think the WInklevosses are quite filthy (fiat) rich as you imagine since a lot of their new wealth came from hodling bitcoin. I imagine they want to go down in history as the next Steve Jobs rather then those buff guys from Social Network that Mark Zuckerberg outsmarted.
Probably right. But if they cashed out a lot of their coinz (and didn't crash the market) ...
Also, I did say "live comfortably" and not "live like kings". "Live comfortably" could be quite a modest amount of money. Could I live comfortably on $1000 a week ? No probs. Could I live comfortably on $500 a week ? Yes.
Well, I mean, that's easily fixable. There's literally nothing wrong with the operator printing more coins so long if they just sell them at $1.09 and pocket the difference. Doesn't mess with anything really - they get the capital, it can't be used for money laundering.
