Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange and custodian, today announced the opening of a Chicago office. This news comes as Bitcoin surpasses its 17-month high and investors are increasingly seeking safe and reliable platforms to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrencies in a regulated manner.
“Cryptocurrency is the future of money, and we’re committed to building a bridge to that future. From day one we have focused on building an institutional-grade platform and are continually investing in talent that will help us realize this. Chicago, one of the world’s major financial centers, is a natural place for us to be. We’re thrilled to formally expand our footprint there as interest in reliable, trustworthy, cryptocurrency trading platforms continues to grow among investors.”
