The Winklevoss twins are looking forward to 2019

The Winklevoss twins, like many other crypto veterans, remain undeterred by this crypto winter, in fact, they’re embracing the chance of a break…

This is because, again, like many other veterans, they know the tide is likely to change at any given moment

“We’re totally at home in winter,” said Tyler Winklevoss in an interview with Bloomberg, “It gives us time to build internally, and refine and kind of catch our breath,” added Cameron.


The Twins have good reason to want a breather, their exchange Gemini has been busy this year, to say the least, with the release of the Gemini dollar (GUSD) stablecoin to the ongoing expansion plans into the Asian market.

Gemini is also working on a new mobile app, which looks to lure further investment into the space by providing retail investors a new avenue for investment on the platform. This, according to the twins is a big priority for 2019, despite the supposed (and imminent?) influx of institutional investment.

“A lot of our decisions have perhaps given off a perception that we’re more institutional-based,” Cameron said. “The reality of the situation is that we have a diverse customer base. And the retail story is just beginning.”.

Expansion plans for Asia are still underway and will continue well into 2019, once set up Gemini will sit alongside some of the world's biggest cryptocurrency companies, such as Bitfinex and Huobi.

This upcoming expansion is a testament to where the Winklevoss’ loyalties lie.

“We’re in this for the long haul,” Tyler said. “We think it’s a space that’s here to stay.”.

What are you talking about? Nobody needs gemini in asia. In fact, nobody needs gemini full stop.

It's these guys. 'Anti-tether' they call themselves, haha
Oh gemini if only you could be at least half as popular and powerfull as that stablecoin maybe then you'd have a chance in asia.

Amazing how they first throw shit over bitfinex and tether and then actually say "world's biggest cryptocurrency companies, such as Bitfinex".
Gemini are damn hypocrites.

Asia can be seriously affected if Gemini is going to expand, hope it wont happen

to me Gemini seems very suspicious company. Winklevoss brothers are trying to make money on hyped projects, like stable coins by launching scam tokens
