On Wednesday (October 28), crypto exchange Gemini announced support for the Euro (EUR).
The Winklevoss twins—Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss—are the co-founders of Gemini Trust Company, LLC (which operates the Gemini digital asset exchange) as well as family office Winklevoss Capital Management, LLC.
In a blog post published yesterday, Team Gemini said that the exchange now supports the Euro for deposits and trading. It is now possible to buy all cryptoassets supports on Gemini with EUR via Gemini’s mobile app and/or the Gemini website either using a debit card or by transferring EURO from your bank account via SWIFT or SEPA.
Furthermore, Gemini has launched ActiveTrader™, its crypto trading platform for experienced/professional traders, which offers features such as “advanced charting, multiple order types, auctions, and block trading.” Currently, ActiveTrader has order books for these trading pairs: BTC/EUR, ETH/EUR, BTC/GBP, and ETH/GBP.
On September 24, Gemini announced that it had expanded its UK operations to make it easier for UK users to buy, sell, and store cryptoassets. Gemini CEO Tyler Winklevoss said that support for the British Pound (GBP) was added in order to provide a better/localized experience for UK residents, who can now buy crypto using either a GBP-based debit card or by depositing GBP into their Gemini fiat wallet via their bank. In the case of the latter, the payment to Gemini can be made using Faster Payments, CHAPS, or SWIFT.
