#CryptoCurrency / Crypto exchange Gemini launches in UK armed with EMI licence

Gemini, one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges, has launched in the UK… The expansion means UK customers can make GBP deposits to fund their Gemini account via Faster Payments, Chaps, and Swift wire transfers.

Gemini was founded by the Winklevoss twins. The brothers waged a legal dispute against Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2004. It landed them a $65 million settlement.

In the last 18 months, Gemini has made some notable new hiring’s. It’s brought on execs from both the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the International Securities Exchange (ISE).

And now it’s moving into the UK. “We’re proud to help usher the crypto revolution into this historic market and become a part of its rich tradition,” says CEO, Tyler Winklevoss.
