Gemini was built with the simple goal of making it safe and easy to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency: a first critical step in our mission is to build the future of money. But we also must foster and encourage novel use cases that are truly native to the world of blockchain or “crypto native.”

We started by bringing U.S. dollars onto the blockchain last September with the launch of the Gemini dollar, the world’s first regulated stablecoin. We are now adding a new dimension by partnering with Harbor — an all-in-one platform for tokenized securities offerings (e.g., commercial real estate, investment funds, etc.) — to allow users to invest in deals using Gemini dollars and receive any future distributions or dividends of such deals in Gemini dollars.

What does this mean? Gemini dollars bring U.S. dollars onto the blockchain and Harbor brings private investments onto the blockchain. This combination has the potential to bring unprecedented access, liquidity, and capital formation to private investments and investors that was previously not possible before the technological breakthroughs of cryptocurrency.

The future of money is just getting started, and we look forward to continuing to work and partner with companies that are building crypto native solutions.

Onward and Upward,

Tyler Winklevoss, CEO
