In a blog post published earlier today, Gemini said that it plans to support three new cryptoassets on its trading platform: Chainlink (LINK), Dai (DAI), and Orchid (OXT).
Gemini also said it will be allowing LINK, DAI, and OXT deposits into Gemini accounts starting at 09:30 Easter Time (or 13:30 UTC) on 24 April 2020, and mentioned that trading would "follow shortly thereafter."
This is the first month that Gemini has added support for any new digital assets since December 2018 (when it listed Bitcoin Cash), and this move by Gemini will bring the total number of cryptoassets it supports to nine (the others are Btcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Zcash, Chainlink, Dai, and Orchid). As for custody, Gemini currently supports the following 15 cryptoassets: ZRX, BRD, MANA, ENJ, FXC, GUSD, GNT, KNC, LOOM, MKR, NMR, OMG, STORJ, FIL, and CSP.

On Monday (April 6), Gemini announced that it would be adding support for Basic Attention Token (BAT) on April 24.
Here is how Gemini is describing these four cryptoassets:

- "Chainlink is building a bridge between smart contracts and off-blockchain data, broadening their access to information and increasing their application potential."
- "Dai is a decentralized, crypto-collateralized stablecoin that seeks to maintain a 1:1 soft-peg with the U.S. dollar. Its primary purpose is to provide you with stable crypto dollars to use on the Ethereum network."
- "Orchid is a peer-to-peer marketplace for virtual private networking (VPN) providers. OXT is the token used to purchase VPN bandwidth."
