Gemini to enable custody and trading for bitcoin cash

December 7, 2018, 11:56AM EDT

Gemini, the New York-based cryptocurrency exchange founded by the Winklevoss twins, announced that it would begin accepting bitcoin cash deposits on Saturday with trading to commence on Monday. Bitcoin cash is the fifth cryptocurrency added to Gemini's exchange, joining bitcoin, ether, litecoin, and zcash. Gemini initially announced support for bitcoin cash in October but decided to delay its listing due to an upcoming hard fork — which ultimately split the network into two blockchains. Gemini will only provide support for the Bitcoin ABC network, which the exchange will refer to as bitcoin cash. The exchange will also be adding replay protection to all bitcoin cash withdrawals to "ensure transactions are only valid on the Bitcoin ABC blockchain." (Source: Gemini)
