SXSW Promotion: Free Bitcoin for New Users!
As part of a limited promotion, the first 500 USA-based new users that sign up to Gemini between Friday, March 11th (6:00pm EST) and Monday, March 14th (6:00pm EDT) will receive approximately $20 worth of bitcoin (0.05 BTC to be exact)!
It’s simple — sign up for an individual or institutional account, and complete the identity verification process. Once your account has been verified, you’ll be eligible to receive free bitcoin. Your account will be credited in one week, on Friday, March 18th at 6:00 pm EDT. No need to complete any surveys, fill out questionnaires, or do any other boring stuff that usually make giveaways not so “free”. Just one account per person, and new Gemini customers only, please! Our compliance team will be on the lookout for people trying to sneak one by us. 😉
Why are we giving away bitcoin for free? Because we want to showcase our platform, including our new fee & rebate schedule and new features like Instant ACH. But most importantly, we want to support the bitcoin community whose enthusiasm and passion continue to excite us to this day.
Bitcoin and other digital currencies have tremendous potential to reshape a financial ecosystem burdened by high transaction costs, long transfer times, and widespread distrust of centralized intermediaries. While recent events such as the block size debate have captured the attention of critics, we remain steadfast in our support of Bitcoin’s potential and feel an obligation to help the community push onward and upward.
We’re interested in making the Bitcoin ecosystem and the broader digital currency community reach their fullest potential. Accordingly, we see value in putting bitcoins in the hands of new users as a way to expand the community and introduce them to the future of money. Again, no strings attached — feel free to purchase goods or services with your BTC at a local vendor, transfer them to an external wallet, or trade them on Gemini. We hope you enjoy our platform and come back for more once you see how seamless and intuitive handling bitcoin on Gemini is.
Take advantage of this promotion right away by signing up for a trading account with Gemini between Friday, March 11th (6:00pm EST) and Monday, March 14th (6:00pm EDT), and get $20 worth of bitcoin for free. We hope that you’re as excited as we are. See you on Gemini!
Onward and upward,
Cameron + Tyler
