The expansion plans came at a time when Gemini was facing a lawsuit filed in January by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in connection with “Gemini Earn.” The exchange’s product — offered in partnership with Genesis — allows users to lend crypto assets to Genesis, which the SEC said violated US securities law.
Gemini seemed to be exploring different markets amid the crackdown on many cryptocurrency companies in the United States. In April, the exchange took the first steps to become a registered restricted dealer with the Ontario Securities Commission of Canada, one of the country’s main financial regulators. In May, the Winklevoss twins announced that they had chosen Ireland as a base to expand the company’s services in Europe.
