Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss did an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit following a full-page advertisement in the New York Times.

The twins answered some of the questions asked, including this one, which CCN also recently reported on.

Cameron Winklevoss said:

Bitcoin Is "Most Likely The Winner"

A user asked "Do you think Bitcoin will allways be Crypto #1?"

To this, Cameron Winklevoss said:

This led to unanswered questions about CW's "definition" of Bitcoin from a Bitcoin Cash proponent, who argued that Bitcoin Cash is now Bitcoin in his view.

Another user asked about the contentious issue of whether or not Bitcoin is a "store of value."

To this, Tyler Winklevoss responded that decentralization is, in his view, the "heart of the matter" as regards the Bitcoin scalability debate. This debate led to the hard fork and subsequent creation of Bitcoin Cash.

Gemini "Committed As Ever" to Bitcoin ETF

Cameron Winklevoss answered a question about the "short-term" plans around making a Bitcoin ETF a reality. He gave some examples of actions Gemini is undertaking to foment this sought-after product.

A user says that he has concerns with "marketplace surveillance." To this, Cameron responded:

Segwit On the Cards for Gemini

A user asked a somewhat difficult technical question regarding why Gemini has yet to implement Segregated Witness. Tyler Winklevoss answered this question by saying:

CCN asked some questions that were not answered.

At time of writing, Gemini was the #52 in terms of market volume. Their strategy of cautiously implementing additional crypto products has seen their retail market potential usurped by exchanges like Coinbase and Binance. Coinbase was #30. Binance was #2, recently overtaken by newer contender LBank.
