We are delighted to announce the expansion of Gemini services to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Republic of Singapore! These dynamic East Asian tiger markets have long embraced the growth of bitcoin and other digital assets, and our expansion to Hong Kong and Singapore represents a critical milestone in Gemini’s pursuit of building a global next generation digital asset exchange.
As of today, registered customers in both the Lion City and the Pearl of the Orient can trade bitcoin and ether using the Gemini exchange. As a registered customer, this will allow you to:
- Buy BTC with USD or ETH, and sell BTC for USD or ETH
- Buy ETH with USD or BTC, and sell ETH for USD or BTC
We’ll be opening HKD and SGD order books and expanding to additional areas of operation soon, so stay tuned!
We also want to highlight our exciting new feature, Daily Auctions (also called “crosses,” which are two-sided and not to be confused with winner-take-all auctions), available to all registered Gemini customers. Auctions present an excellent opportunity for customers who want to execute large trades with over-the-counter (OTC) trading quantities on-exchange without having to worry about price slippage, exorbitant fees, and complicated settlement. Read more about Gemini Auctions.
In addition, we now support US Dollar wire transfers from your bank located in Hong Kong or Singapore. Please be aware that your bank may charge currency conversion fees.
Gemini accepts institutional clients outside of our current areas of operation on a case-by-case basis. To inquire about your institution’s eligibility for a Gemini account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with our sales representative directly via Skype at ShaneGemini.
We’re excited to bring our friends from Hong Kong and Singapore aboard the Gemini spaceship for our journey!
Onward and Upward,
