Gemini (https://gemini.com) is a next generation digital asset exchange and custodian that allows customers to buy, sell, and store digital assets.
We are a licensed digital asset exchange and custodian built for both individuals and institutions. We are a New York trust company regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS). Gemini is a fiduciary and subject to the capital reserve requirements, cybersecurity requirements, and banking compliance standards set forth by the NYSDFS and the New York Banking Law.
We began this journey with a simple goal — to build a world-class digital asset exchange and custodian based in the United States.
Digital assets like bitcoin and ether have tremendous potential to reshape the global financial system and enable possibilities previously unimaginable. For this to happen, the island of digital assets must be connected to the financial mainland. Gemini is your bridge to the future of money.
In order to build a real and sustainable bridge between the old world of money and new world of money, both individuals and institutions need to feel safe and secure whenever they traverse it. This is why our team consists of the top technologists and security engineers. We built Gemini with a “security-first” mentality from day one and continue to adhere to this principle as we build new features and improve the Gemini experience.
