Gemini expands their business into the United Kingdom

Bitcoin exchange Gemini which is run by the Winklevoss twins, Tyler and Cameron, have announced a new expansion extending their business to the United Kingdom.

As of today, registered customers in the United Kingdom can trade bitcoin and ether on Gemini’s ETH/BTC order book. Coming soon, Gemini will be opening their USD order books to UK based customers as well.

In the announcement made by Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder and President of Gemini, he said:

“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of Gemini services to the United Kingdom! 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.”

The United Kingdom is bitcoin-friendly, with many bitcoin exchanges and businesses making the UK their home. The UK has been very favorable toward fintech companies. In April, the UK Treasury said that they plan to bring bitcoin exchange companies “into anti-money laundering regulation,” reinforcing plans they announced last year.

Earlier this month Gemini expanded to Canada, allowing Canadians to begin trading bitcoin on the exchange too.
