The brothers who gained notoriety for suing Mark Zuckerberg over the idea that started Facebook have done quite well in the wake of Bitcoin's record gains, The Verge reports. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss won $65 million in the Facebook lawsuit, invested $11 million of it into Bitcoin in 2011, and now own more than $1 billion in holdings.

Why it matters: Winklevoss twins aside, Bitcoin is in the midst of a dramatic price surges after being dismissed as a fad in its early days. Some currency experts warn of a bubble, and some critics still say it won't catch on as a viable form of currency.

Twitter will start pinning notices to the top of all U.S. Twitter users’ timelines warning them that results in next week’s election may be delayed and that they may encounter misinformation on mail-in voting.

Vice President Mike Pence no longer plans to attend the Senate's final confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Monday, following Senate Democrats' claims that his presence after possible exposure to the coronavirus would be a "violation of common decency," a Pence aide confirmed to CNN and Politico on Monday.

Driving the news: Five of Pence's aides were recently diagnosed with COVID-19, including his chief of staff, who is currently quarantining. Pence has continued his campaign travel despite his possible exposure, which goes against CDC guidelines.
