CCN: Gemini, the bitcoin exchange founded by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, has caught the crypto contest bug. The Winklevoss twins are giving away 1 BTC to the person with the best shot of the Gemini Crypto Bus. The game is sure to strike a chord with people inside and outside of crypto.
While the competition hasn’t generated as much traction on Twitter as Tron Founder Justin Sun’s Tesla giveaway, it’s early. But it could be that Tron’s botched Tesla giveaway has left a bad taste in the mouths of the crypto world. You can spot the Gemini Crypto Bus in a trio of cities. Happy hunting!”
So far, Tyler Winklevoss seems to like this image, saying it’s a “great shot” and complimenting the lighting. Tron’s Tesla Giveaway
Gemini has built a reputation as a “regulated cryptocurrency exchange,” which goes a long way in a market that has been characterized at the Wild West.
Still, Justin Sun’s Tesla giveaway isn’t too far in crypto investors’ rearview mirror. They reneged on the promise and selected a new name, leaving the first Tesla winner basically emptyhanded. After backlash from crypto Twitter, Justin Sun eventually decided to give away two Tesla’s instead of one, making good on the early promise.
Reputation Built on Trust
Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have built their reputation on integrity while Justin Sun has been more controversial. He certainly seems to have learned something from the unfortunate Tesla contest, but the crypto community might need more time. On the other hand, it could attract people from outside of crypto who suddenly gain an interest in crypto when they hear they can win 1 bitcoin. Given the squeaky clean reputation of the Winklevoss twins, you probably won’t have to worry about any switcheroos once the winner is announced.
