By CCN Markets: The Winklevoss twins, Tyler and Cameron, playfully bragged that bitcoin is taking them to space — literally.

Tyler Winklevoss reminded crypto fans that five years ago, he and his brother used bitcoin to pay for a trip aboard billionaire Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceshipTwo.

Tyler tweeted:
