Facebook reportedly courting help from Winklevoss twins for its cryptocurrency

As Facebook continues to poke around at the possibility of creating its own digital currency , it's created the possibility for the unlikeliest of reunions. According to the Financial Times , the social networking giant has held talks with the Winklevoss twins to discuss the possibility of using Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange founded by the brothers, to store and distribute the planned Facebook coin. Engadget reached out to Facebook for additional information but the company declined to comment.
