Information related to Gemini’s policy on an upcoming Chain Split

UPDATED 7/26/17 3:30 PM EDT. A number of customers have asked how Gemini will respond if the Bitcoin network splits into two separate Blockchains (often called a “fork”) sometime soon. Our highest priority at Gemini — more important even than keeping our exchange open — is ensuring that all of our customers’ asset balances are held securely. We know that some of our customers have strong opinions on how Bitcoin should evolve. At Gemini, however, it’s not our place to drive the discussion. In the event of a chain split, we will carefully consider our response and how to move […]

Introducing Our East Asia Timezone Auction

UPDATE 4/7/17 5:00 PD EDT: We have changed the time of the East Asian timezone auction from 18:00 JST (17:00 HKT/SGT) to 19:00 HKT/SGT (20:00 JST).
