Winkdex Launches BTC - USD Price Calculator

image

by Cameron Winklevoss - Founder, Winklevoss Capital

Hi everyone.  We built a new BTC-USD calculator that uses Winkdex’s blended bitcoin price to determine historical pricing of US dollars and bitcoins on a specified date.  The calculator will display the Winkdex value of said amount in the corresponding denomination as of 4:00PM Eastern on the date identified.  

I hope this is a helpful tool for the community.  I welcome any and all feedback, but please also bear with us as this is a first version ;-)

What May Have Happened At Mt.Gox

by Cameron Winklevoss - Founder, Winklevoss Capital

Digital Darwinism

by Tyler Winklevoss – Founder, Winklevoss Capital

Let me first preface this by saying that my thoughts are with all those who may have lost money with Mt. Gox.  While I did not have funds at Mt. Gox, I have felt the pain of investing in a young ecosystem that is on its way to adulthood, but not quite there yet. 

It can’t be emphasized enough that Mt. Gox’s demise was not a Bitcoin problem; it was a Mt. Gox problem.  I stopped using Mt. Gox this summer when it started to look like roach motel.   Fiat withdrawals were being delayed, which was a pretty good indication to me that its assets and liabilities may not have been matching up.  As they say, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck…it is a duck.
