- Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss twin brothers are making a case for bitcoin that the cryptocurrency will skyrocket to $500,000 within the next decade and surpass gold as a store of value.
- “Our thesis is that bitcoin is gold 2.0, that it will disrupt gold, and if it does that, it has to have a market cap of 9 trillion, so we think it could price one day at $500,000 of bitcoin,” Tyler Winklevoss said.
- The cofounders of Gemini explained that Bitcoin is a better store of value than gold and offers higher returns.

The brothers added that bitcoin is an emergent store of value and doesn’t need to be a ubiquitous medium of exchange to continue to grow. Tyler Winklevoss explained that “no one uses gold to buy coffee,” and yet the precious metal has a market capitalization of $9 trillion because investors use it as a store of value. Bitcoin will grow to be a better store of value, particularly because it’s more durable and easier to transport than gold, the investor said.
If bitcoin can also be used as a currency, which isn’t off the table, it could surge even higher than $500,000, said Tyler Winklevoss.
He was wrote in a blog post titled “The Case for $500k Bitcoin,” where he explained that bitcoin is ultimately the only long-term protection against inflation because there are fundamental problems with gold, oil, and the US dollar as stores of value.
