Crypto exchange Gemini, which is led by famed tech twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, has announced a partnership with Samsung Electronics that entails integrating its crypto services with Samsung’s own crypto wallet app. Thanks to the partnership, users of the Samsung Blockchain Wallet will be able to connect to Gemini to trade and as well store cryptocurrency. Gemini is notably the first cryptocurrency exchange to partner with Samsung.
The Samsung Blockchain Wallet is Samsung’s own crypto wallet that’s targeted primarily at mobile users. Samsung is apparently banking on a partnership with Gemini as one that can attract more users or better retain already registered users. The Samsung Blockchain Wallet is currently available for Samsung users but only on select Samsung Galaxy smartphones, which are the Galaxy S20 Series, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Note 10 Series, Galaxy Fold, and Galaxy S10 series.
“Crypto is not just a technology, it is a movement. We are proud to be working with Samsung to bring crypto’s promise of greater choice, independence, and opportunity to more individuals around the world,” Gemini co-founder and CEO Tyler Winklevoss said in a press statement. “Now, Samsung Blockchain Wallet customers can buy crypto in a simple, elegant and secure way on Gemini.”
