At Gemini, we build crypto products that are simple, elegant, and secure. Whether you are an individual or an institution, we want to help you buy, sell, and store your bitcoin and cryptocurrency.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, both Harvard alumni, first got involved with bitcoin in 2012 during the “Wild Wild West” days of cryptocurrency.
At that time, they understood the importance of building a bridge from the old world of finance to the new world of money.
When they began their journey of building Gemini in 2014, their goal was simple: build a world-class cryptocurrency exchange and custodian.
Gemini launched in October 2015 and has been growing ever since!
Crypto has the capacity to force a redesign of the Internet, our financial system, and money in a way that fosters and protects the rights and dignity of the individual. If we are successful, we could make as great of a contribution to personal freedom as the invention of the printing press, the personal computer, and the early, open Internet.
We founded Gemini with a “security-first” mentality and ethos of asking for permission, not forgiveness. We have worked hard to provide you with a high-integrity choice and we look forward to earning and maintaining your trust.
