Gemini Expands Bitcoin and Ether Exchange to New Asian Markets
Digital currency exchange Gemini announced yesterday that it is opening its services to traders in South Korea and Japan.
The move comes just over a year after Gemini first opened its doors in New York. The exchange, which had been in the works since early 2015, came online following its successful bid for a bank charter. Yet the exchange struggled to find traders following its launch, and may be looking past US shores in a bid to attract more activity.
Customers in both countries will have access to bitcoin and ether trading, both markets of which will trade against the US dollar. South Korean and Japanese customers will also have access to Gemini’s daily bitcoin auction.
