Gemini Exchange

Gemini Exchange | Winklevoss Twins Pushing into the UK Market

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have made a name for themselves as US Olympians, but the twins are now also well known for being involved in the crypto space. The pair owns the Gemini Exchange, which is based out of New York.

The Gemini Trust Company was formed back in 2014 and is among the top 100 cryptocurrency exchanges by volume traded. At the time of writing, it is the 58th largest crypto exchange by its 24-hour volume.

Gemini Exchange Expansion

More than 400 different crypto exchanges have sprung up around the world since the crypto crazy took over last year. Regulators have grown increasingly concerned since the crypto market plummeted in value this year.

The Financial Times reported yesterday that its reporters spoke to a source at Gemini and the company is close to filing an application with the UK markets’ watchdog. Last week, UK politicians called on their government to regulate the cryptocurrency market.

Still, it seems the Gemini exchange and the Winklevoss twins are trucking forward in their expansion, despite the tensions. Gemini said in a statement to the Financial Times:

“Gemini continues to explore potential jurisdictions around the globe to provide a best-in-class digital asset exchange and custodian which will enable growth and infrastructure to the entire digital asset community. Although we have no immediate plans, we … [sic] will always evaluate opportunities that allow the global economy to buy, sell and store digital assets in a regulated, secure and compliant manner.”

Winklevoss Twins Pressing Forward

On September 10th, the Winklevoss brother announced that they received permission from New York regulators to launch their stablecoin named the Gemini dollar.

Like Tether (USDT), the Gemini Dollar is a stable value coin that is issued by Gemini and is strictly pegged to the US dollar 1:1. The Gemini Dollar (GUSD) is built on the Ethereum Network and is an ERC20 token. This coin will become the world’s first regulated stablecoin.

The Best Cryptocurrency Exchanges! – Crypto Currency News

As cryptocurrency grew in popularity, so did the exchanges. With over 500 to choose from (and that number is growing weekly!) its a far cry from the earlier days of digital currency when your choices in exchanges were limited to around 8!

With that knowledge, we have compiled a list of some of the most reliable and popular exchanges out there to help you choose the best one for you. Every exchange varies in attributes; some support specific coins, some charge higher fees than others, some are more suitable for beginners with a simplified user-interface, and some simply can be location dependent.  It is recommended you do your research before joining an exchange so as to ensure you trust the platform with your coins. All the exchanges we list here are verified and popular, but always take your time before committing to any platform in the crypto space.

A common rule of thumb is to never store your coins on an exchange. Exchanges – being online – are at high risk for hacking and coins left on the exchange can be subject to thievery! So invest in a wallet to keep your coins safe. To help you choose one of those we compiled our favorite wallets list here.

But first, we need to get you some cryptocurrency! and to do that you need to find a good exchange. Read on to find out about our favorite ones.
