Major Bitcoin investors Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss announced on their blog Wednesday that they had purchased space flights on Virgin Galactic with some of their Bitcoins.


“Cameron and I have decided to use our bitcoin to take the plunge, or rather propulsion, into space. Why? Because Bitcoin and Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic are two technologies that meaningfully represent our focus at Winklevoss Capital – the reduction of pain-points and friction in an effort to build a better world.”
