I never really liked the twins and even less so when in an interview about 10 years ago where they were whining about losing facebook and the interviewer asked them "ok, so if you're all that smart isn't it time to move on. What is your next big idea and when will you bring it out". They just had kind of a deer in the headlamp look and muttered a bit about something that didn't make much sense.

From the article and more interesting, IMO, than the twins:


As bitcoin and security expert Andreas Antonopoulos said Coinscrum, a conference hosted by the prestigious research institution Imperial College in London, investors are encouraged to invest an amount of bitcoin that is proportional to their understanding of bitcoin.

“What percentage of your wealth should be tied up in bitcoin? A percentage that is equivalent to your understanding of how the technology works and your ability to absorb the risks it entails, which for most people is a small percentage,” said Antonopoulos.

If you don't like their business, you can ignore their business.

At least until government makes things "more fair".
