Gemini, a popular cryptocurrency exchange founded in 2015 by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, has added Shiba Inu (SHIB) cryptocurrency support.
Aside from the second-largest meme coin, the New York-based trading platform has also listed a slew of decentralized finance tokens, including Quant (QNT), Fetch AI (FET), and Radicle (RAD).
The Winklevii-owned exchange, known for its emphasis on regulatory compliance, accepted Dogecoin in May, making it one of the most recent major exchanges to join the canine craze. Binance and Coinbase Shiba Inu was listed in the United States in October. SHIB was also made available earlier this week on the retail-friendly app of.
Kraken and Robinhood are still on the bench.
In the meantime, Kraken has not stated whether or not it intends to list the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency.
The exchange stated that it would add Shiba Inu in October, but then backtracked, infuriating the so-called “SHIB Army.”
Robinhood is also dragging its feet on adding the canine cryptocurrency, despite a petition to list the token garnering 531,000 signatures.
While praising the Shiba Inu community, Robinhood Crypto COO Christine Brown stated that adding such meme coins may not be worth it in the long run:
We believe that the short-term gain is not worth the long-term trade-off for our users. We want to make certain that we are working and assessing everything from a regulatory standpoint. And we are a “safety first” organization. That’s how we’re going to approach it.
