Gemini Joins Hawaii’s Digital Currency Innovation Lab

2020-08 HAWAII

Today we are excited to announce Gemini’s participation in the Digital Currency Innovation Lab (DCIL), a two-year pilot program designed to bring crypto to the people of Hawaii.

Our goal, in partnership with the Hawaii Technology Development Corporation (HTDC), will be to create economic opportunity for the people of Hawaii through the early adoption of digital assets and offer them consumer protections through our regulated and secure platform.

The HTDC’s broader mission, working under the umbrella of the Hawaii Division of Financial Institutions (DFI), is to provide quality, high-paying jobs for Hawaii residents and accelerate the growth of Hawaii's technology industry by providing capital, building infrastructure, and developing talent to foster innovation.

Hawaii is an innovative, business-minded state and we look forward to providing our full suite of products and services to Hawaiians through this initiative, and hopefully beyond.

Gemini will now be operational in all 50 states with our participation in the DCIL. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring a simple, elegant, and secure crypto solution to the people of Hawaii.
