Gemini is a security-first platform to buy and sell cryptocurrency that was founded in 2014 in New York City by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss – the well-known twins who sued Zuckerberg over the creation of Facebook.
Regulated by the NYSDFJ, Gemini is one of only a handful of cryptocurrency exchanges that are regulated and available in all 50 states as well as 50 or more countries around the world.
Traders can buy, sell and exchange more than 30 cryptocurrencies, and while crypto conversion is free, there is a convenience charge on each transaction of 0.50% over market price, and a trading fee of $0.99 to $2.99 or 1.49% for transactions over $200.
The trading platform offers multiple tools so traders can do more than just buy and sell cryptocurrency, and the mobile application is available on iOS and Android, fully optimised to buy and sell on the go.
With the mobile app you can set price alerts, and even complete an account set up directly in the application.
Gemini has two different types of wallets available. There is a fully insured hot wallet, as well as institutional-grade cold storage, and both support all listed assets with upgrades available as and when new cryptocurrencies are added to the exchange.
Gemini is a cryptocurrency exchange that has never suffered a successful hacking attack.
The industry-leading security and protection for assets stored in the wallets are backed by the exchange being the first major exchange to launch support of SegWit and now offers native SegWit addresses.
Gemini customers also have access to world-class customer support if they need help with any part of their cryptocurrency transaction and storage.
