Gemini expands further in EU

Source: Gemini

We are pleased to announce that users in Croatia, Cyprus, Hungary, Romania, and Slovenia can buy, sell, and store over 100 cryptocurrencies through Gemini’s website and mobile app.

Consumers can open a Gemini account to trade and custody cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, ether, and dozens of DeFi tokens. They can easily deposit Euros (EUR) and Pound Sterling (GBP) via a debit card, bank transfer, and buy crypto using Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Advanced traders can use ActiveTrader, our high-performance crypto trading interface that delivers a professional-level experience, featuring advanced charting functionality, and multiple order types.

Financial institutions, fintechs, and corporations can access our institutional-grade crypto-native platform with custody, clearing, trade execution, price discovery, and portfolio management services.

Expanding Access to Crypto Across Europe

Gemini is so far available in 12 countries in the European market. Just last week, we went live in Denmark, Sweden, Portugal, Czechia, Latvia, and Liechtenstein, building on our recent launch in Ireland. We continue to develop the strong foundations we’ve been laying in the region since opening in the UK in 2020.

As we grow in Europe, we remain committed to engaging proactively with regulators and policymakers. Gemini was the first company to register with the Central Bank of Ireland as a Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP), and is authorized as an electronic money institution.

With the development of the Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulatory framework poised to harmonize regulation of the crypto space in the European Union, we see huge promise here for companies offering products and services like ours with consumer protection at their core.
