Gemini Launches in Australia

August 21, 2019

Today, we are excited to announce that Gemini is now open to customers in Australia! Australians can now download the Gemini Mobile App and use it to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, zcash, and litecoin.

As part of our mission to build the future of money, we are hard at work expanding our global footprint and bringing our trusted platform to as many countries as possible. We want individuals and institutions around the world to have a safe and easy way to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency and engage in this new digital economy. We have built an institutional-grade exchange and custody solution that operates on the principles of security, transparency, and compliance; trust is our product.

Australia is currently ranked 12th globally for bitcoin trading volume and we are optimistic that Gemini will help encourage broader adoption for crypto in Australia. Today, Gemini is available in a total of 49 U.S. states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and Australia! If you would like Gemini to come to your region, please contact us at institutional@gemini.com.

Onward and Upward,

Introducing Our East Asia Timezone Auction

March 16, 2017

UPDATE 4/7/17 5:00 PD EDT: We have changed the time of the East Asian timezone auction from 18:00 JST (17:00 HKT/SGT) to 19:00 HKT/SGT (20:00 JST).

Ever since Gemini launched our first daily bitcoin auction on September 21, 2016, we’ve been excited by its success and its ability to match buyers and sellers at a single moment of the day. Because our current 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time auction falls during the early morning hours in East Asia, it’s inconvenient for many members of the bitcoin trading community. Beginning Tuesday, March 21, 2017, we will also conduct an auction at 6:00 p.m. Japan Standard Time (5:00 p.m. SGT/HKT, 09:00 UTC). This will allow investors and traders on the other side of the world to engage in the same kind of price discovery that we’ve be facilitating for the last six months. The mechanics will be the same as our 4:00 p.m. ET auction; please see https://gemini.com/marketplace/#auction for details.

ジェミニ(Gemini)が、2016年9月21日に初の日単位でのビットコインのオークションを開始して以来、買い手と売り手のマッチングが、タイミングで成立できていることに、我々はとても興奮させられています。残念ながら、東アジアの参加者にとっては、ニューヨークの午後 4時は非常に早くて不便です。そこで、2017年3月21日(火)から、日本標準時の午後6時(SGT/HKT午後5時、UTC 09:00)にもオークションを行えるようにします。これにより、 ニューヨークにいる我々からみて、世界の反対側にいる投資家やトレーダー達が、これまでの六ヶ月間我々が手がけてきたものと同等の価格発見に関われるようになるはずです。仕組みは、ニューヨークのオークションのそれと同じです。詳しくは、 https://gemini.com/marketplace/#auctionをご覧ください。

Gemini Expands Into the Great State of Washington

June 13, 2017

UPDATE 6/14/17 11:30 AM EDT: We have clarified that Washington’s higher standards are met by the whole Gemini platform and therefore benefit all our customers.

We’re excited to announce that Gemini is now licensed to provide our services to customers in the Evergreen State. Washington has some of the highest standards of oversight for digital asset exchanges within the U.S., and will be instituting further regulations regarding the sale and storage of digital assets beginning next month. This puts Washington up with New York at the forefront of protecting consumers and users of digital assets, beyond what is already done for fiat currencies.

As of today, registered customers in the Evergreen State can buy, sell, and store both bitcoin and ether using the Gemini exchange. As a registered customer, this will allow you to:

  • Buy BTC with USD or ETH, and sell BTC for USD or ETH
  • Buy ETH with USD or BTC, and sell ETH for USD or BTC

One of Gemini’s core values has always been to seek regulatory oversight and licensing whenever possible. And we firmly believe in asking for permission rather than for forgiveness — we do not operate in an area until we have received the necessary licenses or regulatory approvals to do so. Our trust license from the State of New York allowed us to work closely with both New York and Washington state regulators to obtain approval to operate. It was truly exciting and remarkable to see this collaboration between two of the most well respected state regulators, all in the name of innovation.

Even before obtaining approval to operate within Washington, we met the standards set forth by the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions. These protections benefit all Gemini customers, regardless of where you live.

We hope you agree that this is a momentous achievement not only for Gemini, but also for the digital asset ecosystem as a whole.

Lastly, if you are wondering if we are open in your area, please check out our areas of operation page.

Onward and Upward,

Team Gemini
