Future crypto regulation could one day impact the industry on a whole, but until (and if) that comes down the pike, crypto will likely continue to show up just about everywhere we can imagine, leaving a trail of dollar signs in its wake. “We are incredibly excited to continue to build on the frontier of crypto and give individuals around the world greater choice, independence, and opportunity through crypto,” stated Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder and president of Gemini.
In its statement, Gemini noted that the new funding would fuel its geographic growth — targeting Asia, Africa, and South America — as its crypto exchange service is already available in 60 countries spanning other continents of the world. It says it also plans on continuing its investment in NFTs. Since launching in March 2020, Gemini’s Nifty Gateway has racked up more than $420 million in sales via 375 unique artist collaborations — including famous artists such as Beeple — solidifying its spot as an NFT destination. Gemini plans to expand ex-U.S. and continue its NFT growth
What’s next for Gemini? Those investors include rapper Jay-Z’s Marcy Ventures Partners and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA). Earlier this month, CBA proved its crypto bona fides by announcing it would enable crypto trading on its mobile app for retail banking customers, becoming only one of a handful of banks in the world that offers crypto services. Of note, Gemini is providing the cryptocurrency exchange and custodial digital wallet for CBA customers interested in exploring programmable money as part of that agreement.
