Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are both known for their rowing skills. They are also known for being rivals of Zuckerberg, as they received an out-of-court settlement from the Zuc when they allegedly claimed Facebook was based on an original idea by the duo.

David Marcus leading Facebook’s Calibra stated, “We want, and need, governments, central banks, regulators, non-profits, and other stakeholders at the table and value all of the feedback we have received.”
This proves that Libra is the mother and father of centralization. Mark Zuckerberg wishes to control the money market, and I don’t think traders and HODLers are willing to let that happen either.
The duo spoke about the inability of the governments around the world when it comes to placing bans on crypto. There is no way to stop bitcoin from flowing unless “the internet” is blocked, they say.

With regards to the regulators, they said, “You know, we definitely went through the front door, and we tried to educate the regulators and shape the regulation in a thoughtful manner…”
They had earlier partnered up with Flexa to promote adoption of cryptocurrencies. The Gemini dollar operates under them, and this is a stablecoin pegged with the US Dollar.
It is currently ranked at #347 on coinmarketcap. The supply involves 10,510,903 GUSD tokens.
