Winklevoss’ Crypto Exchange Gemini Partners with TradingView
Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange founded by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, has integrated popular trading chart analysis service TradingView.
According to a TradingView’s announcement on Feb. 4, Gemini has added the trading service as a trading partner, allowing its institutional customers to trade or invest directly through TradingView.
As part of the integration, Gemini is now listed in the TradingView’s Trading Panel as well as in the new Brokerage Section.
In a blog post on Feb. 4, Gemini provided short instructions on how to connect a Gemini account to TradingView. The crypto exchange has even created a separate section on its platform’s website for its clients to follow the steps in connecting Gemini accounts with TradingView.
Founded in 2011, TradingView is one of the world's largest social networks for retail traders and investors, which combines web-based charting, analytics, and a trading platform with social features for users to communicate. The company has been actively developing in recent years, expanding support for a number crypto indices, including those of crypto exchanges like Huobi. After raising $37 million in a Series B financing round led by Insight Venture Partners in 2018, TradingView made its first-ever acquisition in April 2019, of multi-broker trading services TradeIt.
In June 2019, TradingView added the so-called CIX100 index — an artificial intelligence-powered index for the 100 strongest-performing cryptocurrencies and tokens. As reported, TradingView listed the index alongside financial terminals of major global publications like Reuters and Bloomberg.
Launched by the Winklevoss twins in 2015, Gemini is a major crypto exchange and custody service that allows users to trade and invest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) and others. The company operates as a trust company that is regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services and is considered to be to be the world’s first licensed Ether exchange.
The integration news comes after Cointelegraph reported on the Winklevoss’ multiple stablecoin patents on Feb. 3. According to the report, the founders of the Gemini exchange have been granted at least six stablecoin-related patents, according to filings with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
