Cameron left and Tyler Winklevoss claim Bitcoins is 'gold 2.0'

Gemini, the cryptocurrency exchange founded and run by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, has expanded to the UK, starting off with trading in Bitcoin and ether, the native coin of the Ethereum network.

They said the same approach would be duplicated in the UK and Canada where they expanded two weeks ago , and are looking to add the ability to trade fiat currency with Bitcoin/ether within the coming weeks.

We have built an exchange that the larger financial institutional players can now finally do business in Bitcoin.

So it a less onerous proposition in the EU or UK?

That's a New York banking law licence, with those banking standards of compliance, capital requirements, and anti-money laundering rules - so that was definitely an onerous task.

In terms of the increases in both cryptocurrencies, coupling, decoupling and so on, exchanges benefit from high volume of trading this can attract.
