The twins' sources of income include their business ventures and investments. They are the founders of Winklevoss Capital Management, Gemini Cryptocurrency, and Harvard Connection. The brothers also own Block-Fi and Nifty Gateway. 



Their journey started with the creation of HarvardConnect, an early social media site designed to facilitate student connections, co-founded with Divya Narendra. Despite its limited adoption, Mark Zuckerberg's introduction of the inaugural version of Facebook quickly overshadowed the platform. Undeterred, the Winklevoss twins established Winklevoss Capital Management, an investment firm supporting early-stage startups.

In 2013, the twins initiated their Bitcoin journey by investing $11 million to acquire 110,000 Bitcoin. Their financial success came with this investment, currently owning 1% of all Bitcoin (around 180,000 Bitcoin). Acquiring Bitcoin at $100 per unit in 2013, their investment has surged to a staggering $1.2 billion, with the twins retaining their entire Bitcoin holdings. They also possess substantial Ethereum and operate the cryptocurrency exchange Gemini.

In 2003, following Victor Gao's suggestion, the Winklevosses and Narendra invited Zuckerberg to join HarvardConnection. Despite prior progress by HarvardConnection programmers, Zuckerberg entered into an oral contract with the Winklevosses and Narendra during a meeting. He allegedly agreed to finish HarvardConnection's programming and become a partner. Zuckerberg received access to the unfinished website and code. By 2004, Zuckerberg launched Facebook, leading to the Winklevoss twins' filing a lawsuit against the business mogul.

The twins own a luxury mansion in Los Angeles worth $18 million. The house spans 8,000 square feet and features 5 bedrooms.

In June 2002, their older sister, Amanda, passed away following cardiac arrest. Despite the personal challenges, their academic and entrepreneurial pursuits continued.
