We are thrilled to support Tez (XTZ), the native token of the Tezos ecosystem, one of the longest running Proof of Stake blockchains.

XTZ is now available for trading.*

Trading for XTZ is available on our FIX/REST APIs and ActiveTrader™ application for USD trading pairs, as well as on our Gemini Mobile App and website for USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, AUD, HKD, and SGD pairs.

With the addition of XTZ we now offer trading for more than 45 cryptos, with a further 14 cryptos available for custody. Learn about all the cryptos we support, and more, here.

We are proud to be the first regulated platform in New York to offer trading support for XTZ.

With support for XTZ, we are delighted to provide Gemini users with access to one of the most vibrant crypto ecosystems. With a dynamic community, smart contract functionality, and a robust on-chain governance mechanism that enables on-chain upgrades, Tezos prioritizes innovation to further enable sustainability and scalability as crypto adoption growth continues across the globe.

We look forward to adding support for new crypto tokens and projects as we continue on our mission to empower you, the individual, through crypto.

Onward and Upward!

Blog Inline TEZOS Tezos (XTZ)

Tez (XTZ) is the native token of the Tezos network. Tezos is an open-source, Liquid Proof of Stake blockchain network. As a Layer 1 protocol, on Tezos developers can create powerful applications using tools that support a variety of programming languages such as Javascript, Golang, and Python. Game developers, music labels, NFT artists, sporting franchises, central banks, real estate developers, global NGOs, and more are all building on Tezos.

Tezos also has a growing DeFi ecosystem with ERC-20 bridges for low-gas cross-chain utility, yield farming protocols, and AMM platforms. Its modular architecture and upgrade mechanism minimizes disruptions while offering regular upgradability and enhanced functionality over time. Upgrades on Tezos are made possible by its proven on-chain governance where continuous improvements are proposed by participants on the network, voted on, adopted, and deployed without the need to rely on hard forks. So far, Tezos has undergone six network upgrades to reduce gas fees, improve token standards, increase transaction speed, and more.
