Innovative account opening
Since the Gemini exchange platform is so compliant with existing regulations, verification is required to set up a personal account. There are three steps to verifying your identity at this point: linking a mobile phone number for two-factor authentication, linking a bank account, and finally, submitting documents to verify your address and identity.The verification process is a vital part of the process of setting up a personal account. It can be argued that the mandatory regulatory compliance significantly encumbers the registration process. As previously mentioned, Gemini accepts only limited funding methods. While individual customers are given the default, zero-fee, depository account type, large institutional customers can opt for a segregated custody account type which offers an offline, secure, and auditable storage called Gemini's proprietary Cold Storage system. The latter service is chargeable, and is ideal for institutional customers like mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, and hedge funds.
