Today, Gemini ran a full-page ad in the New York Times discussing the cryptocurrency revolution and what we think it needs to succeed. We believe this revolution will re-architect trade, the financial system, the Internet, and money as we know it. It won’t be easy and there are no guarantees, but it is our belief that the revolutions that build a lasting set of rules for a better future are the ones with the greatest chance of success.
So how did we get interested in crypto? We first learned about Bitcoin in 2012 and soon became convinced that it was the dawn of an incredibly profound era for money and the financial history of the world. We began buying bitcoin, but quickly realized that there was no safe and easy way to buy, sell, and store bitcoin (or any cryptocurrency for that matter). So we founded Gemini as a solution to our own problem. This was the first step in Gemini’s mission to build the future of money. A mission that involves building trust and long-term, sustainable value for our customers. 2018 was a banner year for Gemini and we are just getting started. Our goal is to build Gemini into a Centurion — a company that lasts a for more than 100 years — that will help power the crypto revolution onward and upward and to the moon! Join us to talk Gemini, crypto, or anything else that is on your mind!
