Forbes, the major media company, has featured Gemini co-founders Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, also known as “Winklevoss Brothers” as the richest Bitcoin (BTC) billionaires.

It has been reported that Michael del Castillo, the crypto-focused reporter at Forbes, said that the ranking provides a list of Bitcoin investors that won the most from Bitcoin’s massive surge up to $42,000 in early January. 

However, the ranking includes three Bitcoin investors with an estimated crypto net worth above $1 billion, including the Winklevoss brothers, major industry investor Tim Draper and Matthew Roszak, the chairman and co-founder of blockchain firm Bloq.

The Winklevoss Brothers topped the list with an estimated cryptocurrency net worth of around $1.4 billion apiece. Roszak and Draper follow, with net worths estimated at $1.2 billion and $1.1 billion.

According to the report, the list also includes three additional crypto investors:

  • Michael Saylor, the CEO of MicroStrategy
  • Mike Novogratz, the founder and CEO of Galaxy Digital
  • Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum

Forbes data stated that Saylor’s crypto fortune amounts to $600 million, while Novogratz and Buterin’s crypto net worths stand at $478 million and $360 million.

Likewise, Castillo said that the newly released ranking is “by no means a complete ranking but captures just how much some fortunes have soared.”

According to the expert, the Bitcoin bull run generated at least five billionaires, and “possibly quite a few more.”

Castillo further said that the rankings are based on publicly available digital wallet data.

Thus, he added:

“Using everything from publicly available digital wallets to old-fashioned reporting, we set out to identify some of the biggest winners of this latest crypto boom.”
