  • Block Trading API (REST/FIX) — We launched Gemini Block Trading™ in April 2018 with FIX/REST API support and released Block limit orders via our UI. Gemini Block Trading™ enables our customers to buy and sell large quantities of digital assets outside of Gemini’s continuous order books, creating an additional mechanism to source liquidity when trading in greater size. For more information, please see our Marketplace page, API Document, and blog post.
  • FIX Connectivity — We partnered with Beeks Financial Cloud to greatly expand the FIX connectivity options we provide.
  • REST Endpoint Transfer History — You can now view the transfer history for all deposits and withdrawals for your USD and digital assets. This was a highly requested feature — you spoke and we listened! Click here for more details.
  • Performance Improvements — We continue to improve our data center to reduce latency while ensuring predictable processing times under heavy loads. Our continuous improvements to our API Documents enhance the usability of our API, including, new detailed Python examples.
  • Coming soon — Our June API features will include read-only access to private orders and trades (another top customer request), the market data WebSockets API will offer top of book and let you filter by entry type to get only the updates you want, and we’ll provide the reason why some orders get canceled.
