A university professor at Warwick Business School has slammed the Winklevoss twins' attempt to build the first exchange traded product (ETP) in Bitcoin, claiming that it will damage the virtual currency’s chances of acceptance. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, best known for their epic legal battle with Mark Zuckerberg over ownership rights to Facebook, reportedly hold $10 million (£6.5 million) of Bitcoin and have filed paperwork to create an ETP that will track the price of the virtual currency. Yesterday it was reported that the pair have set up The Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust and plan to sell $20 million (£13m) of shares to investors. The shares will offer exposure to the yo-yoing price of Bitcoin with, the twins claim, minimal credit risk.
