Regulated cryptocurrency exchange and custodian Gemini has just launched its platform in Australia. The exchange, owned by the Winklevoss twins, will enable Australian cryptocurrency investors to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies.
Gemini will support Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC) and Zcash (ZEC) in Australia. However, it will not support its stablecoin Gemini Dollar (GUSD). Australian investors can now download the Gemini iOS and Android apps to begin trading on the platform. US-based Gemini also operates in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea Puerto Rico and the UK.
As part of our mission to build the future of money, we are hard at work expanding our global footprint and bringing our trusted platform to as many countries as possible. We want individuals and institutions around the world to have a safe and easy way to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency and engage in this new digital economy. We have built an institutional-grade exchange and custody solution that operates on the principles of security, transparency, and compliance; trust is our product.Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder and CEO at Gemini.
Notably, the exchange is in talks with Facebook to join its Libra project. Earlier this week, Gemini also hired David Damato as its new Chief Security Officer.
