In Gemini's blog post, Co-Founder and CEO Tyler Winklevoss, said that this integration with the non-custodial Samsung Blockchain Wallet would make it easier for Samsung Blockchain Wallet users in North America to buy and sell crypto on their Samsung Galaxy phones:
"By connecting their Samsung Blockchain Wallet to Gemini, users can buy and sell crypto, view their Gemini account balances, and also transfer their crypto into cold storage with Gemini Custody for the highest level of security."
The Gemini CEO went on to add:
"Crypto is not just a technology, it is a movement. We are proud to be working with Samsung to bring crypto’s promise of greater choice, independence, and opportunity to more individuals around the world."
