On Aug. 13, the enigmatic sports, gaming, and investing celebrity was visited by the Winklevoss Twins - Tyler Winklevoss and Cameron Winklevoss, co-founders of the Gemini crypto exchange and Bitcoin billionaires.

What the Winklevi, as Portnoy calls them, were there to talk about was - no surprises here - Bitcoin.

"I'm officially inviting the Winklevi twins to my office to explain bitcoin to me. Have to wear the rowing outfits though," Portnoy wrote and said in the video.

I'm officially inviting the Winklevi twins to my office to explain bitcoin to me.

Here are four takeaways from the meeting between Portnoy and the Winklevoss Twins, which has since been viewed over 500,000 times on Twitter alone.

1: The Winklevoss Twins still own 1% of all Bitcoin circulation.

In the ten-minute clip, Portnoy tried to ask the Winklevoss Twins everything he could about Bitcoin.

The Winklevoss Twins nodded, with one responding with a "Yep."

Which included the Winklevoss Twins saying Bitcoin is valuable because Elon Musk is going to mine gold from asteroids to devalue the precious metal, Portnoy pulled the trigger on Bitcoin.

After the Winklevoss talked about how altcoins can be based on a blockchain like Ethereum, Portnoy asked if he could do a coin of himself and then "Pump and dump it." As much of a joke this may sound like, the twins entertained the idea, adding that it's entirely possible to launch a Portnoycoin but that "Pumping it" likely isn't the best idea.
