Tyler Winklevoss, Gemini co-founder and CEO, revealed that the exchange is focused on building its “Crypto Needs Rules” brand to the down under. He stated:
“We are thrilled to continue expanding our global footprint and give Aussies a safe and trustworthy cryptocurrency experience. We founded Gemini to build trust in this nascent technology and we look forward to building that trust in Australia.”
