U.S. cryptocurrency exchange Gemini announced on Thursday the launch of its mobile app for Android and iOS. As previously reported, Gemini was founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, who are the former Olympic rowers that once sued Mark Zuckerberg, claiming he stole the idea for Facebook from them. The brothers notably started the Gemini exchange in 2014, and it is now among the top 100 crypto exchanges by trade volume.
According to Gemini, the mobile app combines the crypto exchange’s institutional-grade security with a simple and intuitive experience designed to make trading on the go easy. Other features include:
- Buy and sell cryptocurrency
- View market prices and portfolio value
- Set price alerts
- Set recurring buy orders
- Buy The Cryptoverse (i.e., basket orders)
- Send and receive cryptocurrency
While sharing more details about the app, Cameron, who is also President of Gemini, added:
“We’ve spent the last three years building the world’s most trusted cryptocurrency platform and today we are excited to extend it into the hands of our customers. Cryptocurrency never sleeps so it’s important for us to make it easy for our customers to engage with it wherever they are and whenever they want.”
The launch of the mobile app comes just a couple of months after it was revealed that the Winklevoss brothers were looking to expand to the UK, even though the founders previously expressed determination to remain in New York despite what many regards as onerous regulations of the finance sector there. The exchange has made it part of its brand and long-term strategy to be regarded as a particularly compliant operator.
