Gemini Launches its own Mobile App
Tyler Winklevoss, the co-founder and CEO of Gemini announced in a post he published on Medium.com that the Gemini Mobile App has been released so that users of the exchange can “trade on the go.” The app is said to allow users to buy, sell, send, and receive cryptocurrency; view market prices and the value of their portfolios; set price alerts and recurring buy orders; and buy “The Cryptoverse,” which is a “basket” of cryptocurrencies available on Gemini.
The mobile app also enables users, be it a registered Gemini customer or not, to check prices and historical price data for bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, bitcoin cash, and Zcash. In addition to the app’s price alert feature, it also supports push notifications which alerts users on their mobile phones whenever prices move above or below a certain threshold.
The CEO said he and the Gemini team “are excited to extend” the platform into the hands of their customers. He noted, “The Gemini Mobile App is one more step towards building the future of money.”
Taking a deep look at Apple’s App Store and the Google Marketplace, one would agree that lot of crypto exchanges have gone mobile. A good example is Binance, the third-most popular crypto exchange by trade volume (according to data from CoinMarketCap), has also gone mobile. Other big exchanges with a mobile presence include, among others, Coinbase, OKEx, and Bitfinex.
Although not every cryptocurrency exchange has a mobile app, but it’s standard for companies to offer one. Therefore, this announcement from Gemini shows that the company is catching up to the rest of the exchange in the Cryptospace.
