Gemini continues to expand, now available in Texas

New York based bitcoin exchange Gemini is continuing to progress in expanding all over the world, with the goal of being licensed in all 50 U.S. states. Their latest move takes them to Texas, where people will be able to buy and sell bitcoin in the Lone Star State.

Gemini who announced the news, said that as of today, registered customers in Texas can buy, sell, and store bitcoin and ether using the exchange. At this time, Gemini customers in a total of 33 U.S. states and Washington D.C. have full access to all of Gemini’s order matching engines.

Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder and president of Gemini also commented about the update adding,

“We would like to highlight that Gemini is also accepting Institutional clients outside of the U.S. on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to inquire about your Institution’s eligibility for a Gemini account, please contact:institutional@gemini.com or connect with our Head of Institutional Sales directly via Skype: DannyKimNY.”

Gemini recently expanded to the United Kingdom and Canada in their pursuit of being accessible to everyone globally.

The news of Gemini expanding to Texas will come as good news, in particular those who previously traded on the itBit exchange, who stopped supporting residents in the state in April.
