Gemini is expanding its services to Australia. This is the sixth international location supported by the cryptocurrency exchange. Gemini also supports trading in Canada, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the UK. Australian cryptocurrency users can now access Gemini's desktop and mobile platform to trade bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, zcash, and litecoin.

"Cryptocurrency is the future of money, and we're committed to building a bridge to that future in Australia," said Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder and CEO at Gemini. "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."

Earlier this week, Gemini hired David Damato as its new Chief Security Officer. The Block previously reported that the exchange had doubled-down its efforts to improve its trading engine.
