Winklevoss Twins Invest $4.5 Million Bitcoin into Real Bedford


Winklevoss Capital, the investment firm led by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, co-founders of the cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, has committed a $4.5 million investment of bitcoin to the Real Bedford Football Club (RBFC). This investment is now the largest ever made in a non-professional league football club in the United Kingdom.

New Co-Owners at RBFC

Following the investment, the Winklevoss twins will join RBFC’s existing owner, Peter McCormack, as co-owners. McCormack, known as the host of the “What Bitcoin Did” podcast, described the investment as a testament to shared values of vision and conviction. McCormack praised the Winklevoss twins for their foresight and commitment to Bitcoin, as well as their early involvement in cryptocurrency as evidence of their insight.

Impact on Real Bedford FC

In a statement shared on the social media platform X, Cameron Winklevoss elaborated on the intentions behind their investment. He emphasized that the investment in Bitcoin strengthens Real Bedford’s financial foundation, giving the club significant advantages both on and off the football field. According to Cameron, the robust financial base provided by Bitcoin will serve as a model for small businesses and “underdogs” aiming to establish financial stability and enhance their operational missions.

A Blueprint for Financial Independence

This investment not only shifts Real Bedford FC, but also sets a precedent for how cryptocurrency can be effectively leveraged to fortify and empower businesses in various sectors. The Winklevoss twins’ involvement in RBFC is yet another example of cryptocurrencies being utilized in traditional markets, aiming at sustainable growth and financial independence within the economy.

The partnership between Winklevoss Capital and Real Bedford is a high profile merger for the sports and crypto worlds, we hope this will potentially lead to more such collaborations in the future.
