The Gemini cryptocurrency exchange, one of the projects of the Winklevoss twins, has launched in Japan and South Korea.
This means registered customers from the two countries can buy and sell bitcoin and ether with/for US dollars or the either of the cryptocurrencies. Also, Gemini supports bank wires of USD from the banks in Japan and South Korea.
“These dynamic East Asian economies have long embraced the growth of bitcoin and other digital assets, and our expansion to Japan and South Korea represents another milestone in Gemini’s pursuit of building a global next generation digital asset exchange,” said Cameron Winklevoss in a blog post on the exchange’s site.
The Gemini exchange was launched in October 2015 and offers trading in bitcoin, ether and US dollars. It started off with bitcoin and dollars, but in early May it got a license from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) for trading in ether.
Earlier this year Gemini launched daily auctions of bitcoin.
