Gemini, the New York-based cryptocurrency exchange operated by entrepreneurial brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, has set up in the U.K.
“This is a significant and important part of Gemini’s international expansion and our tireless pursuit of building a world-class digital asset exchange empire on which the sun never sets,” wrote Cameron Winklevoss in a corporate blog post published Tuesday.
The exchange embarked on its global expansion earlier this month with an operation set up in Canada.
According to the blog, registered customers in the U.K. can trade bitcoin and ether on Gemini’s ETH/BTC order book. The exchange will soon open its USD order books (BTC/USD and ETH/USD) to U.K.-based clients as well.
In early May, Gemini was awarded a license to trade ether by the New York Department of Financial Services, making it the first licensed ether exchange in the world.
