Gemini Supports New DeFi, Gaming, NFT, and Infrastructure Tokens
We are thrilled to announce support for new DeFi, gaming, NFT, and infrastructure tokens. Trading and custody are now available for: Bancor (BNT), 1inch (1INCH), Loopring (LRC), The Sandbox (SAND), Skale (SKL), The Graph (GRT), and Enjin (ENJ).
Trading is available for all seven tokens on our API/FIX and our ActiveTrader™ platforms for USD trading pairs, and on our mobile application and website for USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, AUD, HKD, and SGD trading pairs.
With these new additions, we now offer trading and custody support for a total of 33 cryptos, with a further 10 cryptos available for custody on our platform. Learn more about all the cryptos we support here.
We are proud to be the first regulated platform to offer trading and custody support in the State of New York for SAND and 1INCH.
Our industry is constantly evolving with new projects that promise to redefine the boundaries of finance, gaming, and art, and offer more financial independence. As the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) revolution has come into bloom, over the past weeks we have seen an explosion of interest around digital art and NFTs (non-fungible tokens), and we are excited to continue supporting the development of the space. As we advance our effort to empower the individual through crypto, support for these new tokens allows us to continue building a decentralized community of empowered investors.
We look forward to providing further access to new crypto projects as our industry grows to new heights, and as we continue to build the infrastructure to support the future of finance.
Onward and Upward,
