On Sunday morning, the American public benefited from a new exposure to Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptographic assets. The famous New York-based outlet, CBS, has released a feature film on the main cryptocurrency, questioning the Winklevoss Twins about their involvement in space.
Thus, the original idea of the twins, Gemini, gained visibility, just as the BTC exceeded $ 9,000 in a breathtaking turn.

Bitcoin Boosted by CBS
On Sunday morning (Father's Day), CBS aired an eight-minute segment on Bitcoin – the last hour of a traditional retail outlet that discussed the issue in depth. During the aptly named "Sunday Morning" episode, CBS contributors met Tyler Winklevoss, Cameron Winklevoss and Ben Mezrich (author of "Bitcoin Billionaires").

The involvement of twins in Facebook and Bitcoin has been discussed. The presenter said he was not surprised that the so-called "Winklevi" was at the head of two trends: social media and digital money.
Simple concepts in Bitcoin have been mentioned. CBS called it "money that works as an email" and the twins pointed out that BTC could potentially outperform the gold. The anchor also mentioned the imminent cryptocurrency of Facebook. The number of viewers received by the segment is unclear, but this figure is probably in the millions to one digit – not bad.
It is interesting to note that some criticized the report, which according to the author was essentially balanced. The eminent commentator and fervent bull of Bitcoin, the American HODL, remarked that the fact that CBS claims that BTC is "slippery and incomprehensible" is a little irresponsible, in that the point of sale pushes "FUD" If you want.
As HODL explains, you see, "It is not because you can not understand it that not everyone can. Believe it or not, some of us understand what is happening here. "
CBS news: Bitcoin is slippery and incomprehensible.
The fact that you can not understand it does not mean that everyone can not. Believe it or not, some of us understand what is happening here.
Low IQ High time preference. A recipe for a terrible life.

Gemini on the rise
Apparently as a direct result of this comprehensive report and the rebound of Bitcoins between $ 8,800 and $ 9,200 in rapid succession, Gemini-regulated cryptocurrency, founded by the Winklevoss Twink, has sparked a renewed interest in American public.
As noted by the twin Cameron, the Gemini mobile app is "about to rank among the top 20" in the Apple App Store for "Finance" applications.

This follows the news that Bitcoin-friendly Square Cash is at the top of the App Store, and the terms "Blockchain" and "Coinbase" tend to appear in the search bar of the market.
The public exhibition is back for crypto
This comes shortly after "60 Minutes" from CBS, a world-renowned television program known for its ability to tackle difficult issues and covering key trends, covered Bitcoin.
In this segment, driven by legendary television personality, Anderson Cooper, CBS met with Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard; Neha Narula from the Digital Currency Initiative of the MIT Media Lab; Marco Streng, cryptocurrency entrepreneur, who heads Genesis Mining; the "Bitcoin pizza guy"; and Charlie Shrem, founder of BitInstant and collaborator at Winklevoss Twins, to better understand the nuances of the industry.
