Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss

-

NET WORTH: $2.2 billion each (ª from $4.3 billion each)

Under di•erent circumstan­ces, the Winklevoss twins, famous for accusing Harvard classmate

Mark Zuckerberg (No. 11) of stealing their idea for a certain social network, might have found some consolatio­n in the abysmal year endured by Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook). But the Winklevii went through their own crypto winter, as the value of their estimated 70,000 bitcoin, funded in part by their $65 million Facebook settlement, plunged by 60%, or nearly $2 billion, over the past 12 months. Meanwhile, Forbes estimates that their cryptocurr­ency exchange, Gemini, is worth roughly half as much as it was last November, when it raised $400 million at a $7.1 billion valuation, as trading volumes have plummeted.
