Gift Bitcoin This Lunar New Year With Gemini’s Gifting Crypto Feature

Gifting Crypto-Blog Header

Today, we’re excited to announce that Gemini users in Singapore and Hong Kong can start gifting bitcoin (BTC) with our new Gifting Crypto feature. Why send a cash gift this Lunar New Year when you can gift BTC to family and friends? It’s more than just a gift — it’s an investment!

Through Gifting Crypto, you can gift BTC held in your Gemini exchange account to Gemini account holders in Singapore or Hong Kong. Once you confirm your gift order, the recipient will receive an email with the gift amount and an accompanying message of your choice. If the recipient doesn’t have an existing Gemini account, the email will also guide them through creating one, and your gift will be held safely until an account is open.

When you gift crypto on Gemini, you can give a family member, friend, or colleague an original gift in just three simple steps, and without incurring any additional fees:

  1. Choose the amount of BTC you want to gift from your Gemini account
  2. Enter the recipient's name and email along with an optional gift message and hit send
  3. The recipient will receive an email notifying them of the gift and instructions to redeem

This feature is currently available to customers in Singapore and Hong Kong, with availability in more jurisdictions and support for more cryptos coming soon. Further information on Gifting Crypto can be found here and on the Gemini website and mobile application.

We look forward to further developing new and innovative ways for you to engage with the Gemini community as we advance our mission to unlock the future of financial, creative, and personal freedom through crypto.

Onward and Upward!

Team Gemini
