EarlyBird To Launch Crypto Wallet Custodied by Gemini, Allowing Parents To Invest in Bitcoin and Ether for Their Children

Blog Header (6)

Today, we are thrilled to announce that EarlyBird, a Gemini Frontier Fund portfolio company, has launched their waitlist for EarlyBird Crypto.

EarlyBird Crypto, powered by Gemini, will allow parents, family, and friends to contribute crypto to a child’s investment portfolio, providing the next generation of investors with early exposure to the burgeoning crypto asset class. Gemini will serve as the custodian for EarlyBird Crypto, providing institutional-grade security and compliance to families investing on the platform.

Parents who sign up for the EarlyBird Crypto waitlist will receive early access to the offering when it goes live next month, as well as a $25 sign-up bonus.

EarlyBird is a platform for parents, family, and friends to seamlessly invest in a child's future, having helped tens of thousands of families open accounts for their children since launching in December 2020. Within minutes, parents can set up an account, choose from a range of diversified portfolios, set a recurring investment, and invite friends and family to make contributions.

With the launch of EarlyBird Crypto, parents can invest in bitcoin and ether for their children, a first for the wealth management industry!

The launch of EarlyBird Crypto comes on the heels of the company’s $4M seed funding round, led by Alexis Ohanian’s Seven Seven Six and with strategic participation from the Gemini Frontier Fund.

Gemini offers crypto services and infrastructure to a growing number of asset managers and institutions across the world through Gemini Custody, Gemini Fund Solutions, and custom integrations with registered investment advisors and FinTech platforms. As a New York trust company and qualified custodian regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services, one of the most sophisticated financial regulators in the world, the security of our clients’ assets is our top priority.

We are excited to work with EarlyBird to provide parents with access to crypto investments for their children, as we continue on our mission to unlock the future of financial, creative, and personal freedom through crypto!

Onward and Upward!
