Winklevoss Twins File Proposal with Securities Regulators For Bitcoin Investing
This week, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss filed a proposal with securities regulators that would essentially enable any and all investors to trade Bitcoins, exactly as if they were stocks. They'd establish an exchange-traded fund to make it happen, but it's actually part of a larger effort to add some legitimacy to Bitcoin. The Winklevoss twins already own a serious chunk of the currency, so this would obviously help their own cause. It's certainly not a given that regulators will approve it, but it's a big step forward for a currency that's just longing to be taken seriously.
