“An array of speculators have now bid up the price of the Bitcoin to the point where the outstanding supply of the digital money was worth $1.3 billion at last count. The Winklevii — as they are popularly known — say they own nearly 1 per cent of that, or some $11 million.”

With the value of Bitcoins crashing since yesterday, it seems like a tough time to own that much of the popular digital currency.
