Gemini Approved For USD Stablecoin
Widely known cryptocurrency exchange founded by the Winklevoss twins, Gemini, has confirmed that they will launch a stablecoin backed by USD. The cryptocurrency is built on ethereum, and has been reviewed and approved by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS). It will be directly pegged 1:1 with USD, where the Gemini Trust Company holds USD deposits corresponding to the number of tokens in circulation. The holdings are secured in the U.S. based State Street Bank, and insured through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)'s "pass-through" deposit insurance program. Independent auditor BPM Accounting and Consulting will review the company's bank holdings on a monthly basis, and Gemini will make the audits publicly available."The Gemini dollar is part of our mission to build the future of money ... It is the missing link between the traditional banking system and the crypto economy." - Tyler Winklevoss
