Gemini celebrates its 6th birthday – and one year in the UK

Six years ago today, Gemini was launched with a vision for a simple, secure, and reliable bitcoin exchange. What the Winklevoss twins saw in Bitcoin and, more broadly, crypto were tools to empower the individual and fundamentally impact the future of finance.

Now in 2021, crypto has become a global asset class with a market cap greater than one trillion dollars, a testament to the dedication and enthusiasm of millions of people around the world. At Gemini, we are proud to have contributed to the growth of our industry and are inspired by what the future holds.

From a Small New York City Office to a Global Brand

Gemini started with a small and close-knit founding team in a tiny office west of Madison Square Park, an area of New York City now known as “Crypto Alley.” In merely six years, Gemini has grown into a global crypto platform with almost 600 employees across three continents and eight offices. Motivated by their continued growth, with London colleagues recently celebrating their one year anniversary, and the Asia Pacific team building Gemini’s momentum across the region.

Gemini’s global expansion mirrors the explosion of interest in crypto over the past six years. Launching initially as a one-asset exchange that just offered USD/BTC pairs, Gemini users can now buy, sell, store, and earn interest on more than 50 cryptos including popular tokens like ether and Dogecoin, as well as the exciting cryptos powering the burgeoning decentralized finance (DeFi) space. We’ve also made it easier to transit into crypto, expanding our fiat support beyond U.S. dollars (USD), to offer trading in British pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), Canadian dollars (CAD), Australian dollars (AUD), Hong Kong dollars (HKD), and Singapore dollars (SGD), making Gemini a truly global exchange.

Imagining the Future of Finance

Gemini will help shape the future of finance, and we’ve barely reached the bottom of the first inning for crypto. Over the past six years Gemini have launched innovative projects and invested in compelling ideas, bringing incredible talent under the Gemini umbrella, acquiring four startups — Nifty GatewayBlockrizeShardX, and Guesser — since 2019.

Earlier this year, in the US, they launched their interest-bearing product Gemini Earn, which allows Gemini users to earn interest on their crypto. Gemini are excited about the upcoming launch of the Gemini Credit Card, with which cardholders can earn crypto rewards on their purchases. We also launched Cryptopedia, an open-access, high-quality crypto education resource.

Gemini thrilled about Nifty Gateway’s tremendous growth as the NFT space continues to draw interest from artists and collectors alike. Recently, the Nifty Gateway team released a new site design with the aim of providing the best UI and UX in the NFT space, further unleashing the power of the ever-expanding Nifty Gateway community.
