Winklevoss twins cover ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ days after shedding crypto employees


Because the cryptocurrency market plunges, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have a message: “Don’t Stop Believin.’” 

The twins — best known for accusing Mark Zuckerberg of stealing their idea for Facebook — covered the classic Journey tune at a Latest Jersey rock club last Thursday — only one week after shedding 10% of staffers at their cryptocurrency startup Gemini.

In a bizarre video of the gig posted to Twitter, Tyler belts out off-key vocals right into a microphone while Cameron shreds on an electrical guitar. The twins each sport slicked back, sweaty hair. 

“Uh so i saw the winklevoss twins’ band?” wrote an attendee user who posted the video clip to Twitter, calling the show “by far one in all the strangest and most tragically hilarious/infuriating things i’ve ever witnessed.” 

The brothers also sold NFTs as band merchandise, in response to the Twitter user who posted the video of the show at Asbury Park’s Wonder Bar.

Along with Journey, the Winklevoss twins have also covered songs by Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, U2, Nirvana, Kings of Leon and The Killers, in response to Page Six, which reported on their first show in Brooklyn last yr.

Announcing last week’s layoffs, the crypto brothers cited difficulties related to “current macroeconomic and geopolitical turmoil” for forcing them to slash jobs for the primary time since they founded Gemini in 2014.

“Today is a troublesome day, but one that can make Gemini higher over the long term,” the brothers said in a note to employees while announcing the layoffs. “Constraint is the mother of innovation and difficult times are a forcing function for focus, which is critical to the success of any startup.”

The Gemini layoffs also got here amid a lawsuit by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission accusing the corporate of constructing false and misleading statements concerning a bitcoin futures contract the firm was pursuing in 2017.

The brothers have also reportedly personally lost billions of dollars each throughout the ongoing crypto crash.

The twins’ band, called Mars Junction, has upcoming tour dates set for clubs in Los Angeles, Berkeley, San Diego, Denver, Las Vegas and the Hamptons, in response to their website

Gemini didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment. A representative for the Winklevoss twins couldn’t be reached.
