One of the world’s top cryptocurrency exchanges, Gemini, has announced its latest advancements. The company said it has opened and begun to run its operations in more European countries. The company’s new operation fronts are the Czech Republic, Denmark, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Portugal, and Sweden.
Opening New Frontiers
The latest development was made public by Gemini’s Head of Ireland and EU operations, Gillian Lynch, through a press release. The statement said that the company is excited to announce to the public that residents and institutions in the aforementioned countries can begin to open Gemini accounts now.
The Gemini accounts will enable them to trade, deposit, and use custody services for more than 100 cryptocurrencies available on the exchange. Lynch said in the release that users can now access Gemini’s website and other platforms securely. They can purchase their cryptocurrencies on the exchange’s website or its mobile application.
The crypto exchange will accept the British Pound or Euro from users through either their bank transfers, debit cards, Google Pay, or Apple Pay. It also gives room to better-advanced traders to transact with ActiveTrader.
ActiveTrader is Gemini’s high-level cryptocurrency trading platform that gives users a professional user experience. The platform has an advanced chart system, as well as many order types.
Lynch’s statement also read that the exchange’s institution-focused crypto platform is also now available. It is available to be used by fintech firms, financial institutions in general, and other corporations. The institution-focused platform is said to have clearing, custodial, trade execution, portfolio management, and price discovery services all embedded in it.
According to Lynch, the latest launch in the six European countries signify another landmark in Gemini’s advance across the European market. The advance, according to her, is established on a solid foundation of proper engagements with policymakers and regulators. They were helpful in gaining all needed registrations and authorization in respective countries.
Following From Ireland
Launching in these countries follows Gemini’s early launch in the Irish Republic. It was the first firm to get registered with the Irish central bank as a Virtual Assets Service Provider. It also got authorization as an electronic money service provider.
Gemini launched its operations in Ireland on the 11th of October. Lynch also made the announcement known via a press statement. Ireland received the same services that were launched on the six countries.
Gillian Lynch said the expansion into Ireland followed several proactive steps with the country’s policymakers and regulators. The firm was able to get high-level approvals and licensing to run its business there.
Ireland is recognized internationally as a technology and finance hub. The country serves as the broader European fintech industry’s gateway.
Gemini said in the announcement that it is glad to serve the demands of the Irish market for a secure and accessible crypto platform. It also expressed its excitement to work with the educated and tech-savvy population and customer base in Ireland.
