Following up on its first international venture targeting Canada earlier this month, Gemini, the American cryptocurrency exchange founded by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, is today expanding again beyond its original offering range of authorized Bitcoin trading for the US market.
Gemini has now opened for registered customers in the UK the option to trade Bitcoin and Ethereum on its ETH/BTC order book. USD trading support for British clients is also planned to be added so that they will be able to buy and sell the two cryptocurrencies with fiat and not just exchange for one another.
Cameron Winklevoss, the co-founder and President of Gemini, commented: “We are thrilled to announce the expansion of Gemini services to the United Kingdom! This is a significant and important part of Gemini’s international expansion and our tireless pursuit of building a world-class digital asset exchange empire on which the sun never sets.
We’re excited to bring our friends from across the Pond aboard the Gemini spaceship for our journey, and we look forward to expanding to additional areas of operations in the near future. Keep calm and trade on!”
Last month Gemini was authorized by the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) to offer the trading of Ethereum in the US. It obtained a trust charter, which grants permission to operate in all 50 American states as a fully regulated financial services entity.
