Cameron Winklevoss, the co-founder of Gemini crypto exchange made a profound statement on Twitter that the “great accumulation of Bitcoin” has begun. As Bitcoin (BTC) continues to gain mainstream acceptance, Camron’s remarks have sparked intense speculation and interest among investors and enthusiasts alike.
The Great Accumulation of bitcoin has begun. Anyone watching the flurry of ETF filings understands the window to purchase pre-IPO bitcoin before ETFs go live and open the floodgates is closing fast. If bitcoin was the most obvious and best investment of the previous decade, this…

Comparing Bitcoin with Past Performances
Cameron draws a comparison between the previous decade, during which Bitcoin emerged as the most obvious and best investment, and the current decade, which presents an opportunity for what he believes could be the most obvious and best trade.
With the speculative likelihood of the launch of Bitcoin ETFs, Cameron emphasizes that the accessibility of Bitcoin is set to expand, potentially transforming the market. The Gemini boss claims that investors recognizing the limited window for pre-IPO investments may view this as a favorable opportunity to accumulate Bitcoin before broader adoption occurs.
In recent times, big players in traditional finance including BlackRock, Invesco, Fidelity Investments, and Wisdom Tree have filed for the spot Bitcoin ETF application, boosting investor confidence.
Remarkably, Cameron’s remarks were motivated by Bitcoin’s recent price spike, which saw it reach $30,000 for the first time since April. As of the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $30,213.97 with a price increase of 6.5% in the past 24 hours.
Meanwhile, Cameron has earlier predicted a shift in focus from the US to the East when it comes to the next significant crypto bull run due to heightened regulatory requirements.
Factors Fueling the Bitcoin’s Price Surge
Bitcoin’s price surge followed Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s comments acknowledging the role of payment stablecoins as a form of money. Additionally, Powell also expressed the view that the central bank should play a role in approving the issuance of stablecoins.
Simultaneously, the U.S. House Financial Services Committee signaled its intent to vote on new legislation in July aimed at providing greater clarity for digital assets. The proposed legislation seeks to establish a clearer regulatory framework, facilitating the transition of digital assets from a security status to a commodity.
Furthermore, Bitcoin’s latest price breakthrough also corresponded with a huge rise in network activity, as evidenced by an increase in its transaction volume.
