Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, the twins best known for their role in the early days of Facebook, believe the online currency bitcoin is "digital gold."

The twins continue to pitch bitcoin as another Internet-based idea they believe could change global payments forever.

The brothers, who together run technology-focused venture capital firm Winklevoss Capital, described bitcoin at the Value Investing Congress on Tuesday as a revolutionary new form of digital money that would do everything from bypassing central bank monetary policy to helping curb inflation in Zimbabwe.
