The Winklevoss twins reached a settlement with Charlie Shrem on April 16, 2019, declaring that their case against him has been dismissed with prejudice and will not be reopened.
The twins, who founded the Gemini cryptocurrency exchange, originally sued Shrem, the founder of early bitcoin company BitInstant, in November 2018, alleging that Shrem stole 5,000 bitcoin from the pair in 2012.

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin and The Litecoin Foundation has spoken out against the ‘fudsters’ that are spreading false news about Litecoin. In typically defensive fashion, Lee has spoken out to put rumours at bay and to highlight that even though the value of Litecoin is especially low, Litecoin still holds the potential to grow and will pull in a significant value again, one day soon.
Lee is a controversial figure, one who likes to hit the headlines with his outspoken nature, therefore we do expect that some of this is a hunt for media attention as actually, I’ve not seen any Litecoin FUD for a while.
Litecoin creator Charlie Lee is striking back at what he calls a “concerted effort to suppress” the LTC price on the party of bearish traders and hedge funds who are attempting to short the coin. Writing in a thread posted on Twitter, Lee — who created LTC in 2011 and now develops it full-time —

The cryptocurrency market has now been in a bear cycle for more than two-thirds of the past year, and, as August prepares to roll in September, predictions from past months that the bitcoin price would test its all-time high in 2018 appear less and less likely. However, even after this prolonged decline, Litecoin creator Charlie

Litecoin creator Charlie Lee is not planning to buy back the litecoins he sold “any time soon or at all” after he sold his entire holdings nine months ago.
Buy The Slide
That was the response to a question during an appearance on CNBC August 27, during which Lee discussed Bitcoin 00 and Litecoin price 00 performance and adoption.
“For me, I sold because of a conflict of interest,” he told host Melissa Lee when she asked whether Litecoin’s current price of $ 58 represented a “buying opportunity.”
Litecoin is one of the cryptocurrencies that really does fancy its own chances with regards to cryptocurrency adoption. Because Litecoin is fast and easy to obtain, plus it’s reinforced by a community that strives to #PayWithLitecoin, LTC is often seen as one of the critics choices when asked which cryptocurrency will be adopted first (second to Bitcoin Cash, generally).
According to Crypto Globe, Charlie Lee, the Founder of Litecoin has recently spoken to CNBC during which he discusses some of the problems that Litecoin solves and importantly, discusses how solving scalability should be one of the most important priorities for Litecoin as adoption becomes more prominent.
Charlie Shrem sat down with Yahoo Finance recently to discuss his thoughts on the present and future states of cryptocurrency.
The Starting Line
Charlie Shrem, early Bitcoin 00 adopter and founder of BitInstant and Crypto.IQ was interviewed by JP Mangalindan of Yahoo Finance on Sunday. The sit-down took place at the MoneyShow conference in San Francisco last Thursday.
Shrem gave the audience some nuggets of wisdom and advice, while also discussing his thoughts on the current cryptocurrency market and its future trajectory.
Charlie Lee has always been one of the more intriguing cryptocurrency developers to follow on social media. His involvement with Litecoin has been well documented, and Lee has also been posting some interesting comments regarding other altcoins. Unsurprisingly, some of his recent comments have irritated a lot of Litecoin supporters, as they feel Lee is turning his back on the currency he created.
Forks are now commonplace in the crypto industry. Bitcoin has had more of them than an Italian restaurant in recent months. While they may cause confusion to those new to the scene, they are essentially just another version of the original blockchain. Well most of them are anyway; a new fork of Litecoin may not be all that it seems.
It has been reported this week that Litecoin founder Charlie Lee is actively warning people not to trust or invest in Litecoin Cash. The new version apparently has nothing to do with the original LTC and is just using the name to generate interest and dupe people into believing it is.
Bitcoin industry stalwart Charlie Shrem has described decentralized cryptocurrencies as “the biggest innovation of his lifetime” amid turbulent activity on markets.
Shrem: My Goal Is Freedom-Giving Technology
In a series of tweets Thursday, Shrem, who returned to the cryptocurrency space following a highly criticized spell in jail, explained how the freedoms associated with ‘true’ decentralized assets and networks are his “goal.”
“I came to help build technology that gives us freedom and I will not stop until I’ve reached my goal. I’ve already had my freedom taken from me once and I never want to see that happen to anyone,” he wrote.
InsurePal, the social proof blockchain-based insurance platform, announces upcoming crowdsale and addition of Bitcoin pioneer Charlie Shrem as an advisor.
Any group, no matter how large or how small, is only as strong as the individuals that comprise the group. This thought is often expressed in the old adage that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Such sentiments are quite applicable to the business world. A business, no matter their product, succeeds because the people in it have experience, vision, and passion for what they do.
