Using Gemini to Purchase Bitcoin and Ethereum

In order to get started with cryptocurrency you first need to purchase some. Gemini is one of the easiest ways to purchase cryptocurrencies if you live in the United States. You can gain access to Gemini by visiting and registering for an account.

Once you have signed up for an account you will need to verify your banking information. This is a pretty straight forward process as long as you have all of the required information on your account. Some accounts are able to auto verify and but if you have difficulty you should contact your bank. This verification will allow you to deposit funds via Bank Wire or Bank Deposit.

Once your information has been verified you can then make a deposit into your account and make your first purchase. Gemini offers Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Once you have made your purchase you can then withdraw your funds to the exchange or storage method of your choice.

Selling Bitcoin and Ethereum using Gemini is just as easy. You deposit your cryptocurrency into your account and sell it on the exchange. Once you have done that you can deposit funds to your bank account via Free Wire transfer which arrives within 1 business day.


I have heard about Gemini but never tried it. I will look into in because I want to have more than one place to buy my cryptocurrency. Thanks.

It's not a bad place to have an account. I started with Coinbase but I actually prefer Gemini now.

Nice to hear that gemini is not one of the ones that blacklist crypto buys.

I was unfamiliar with the Gemini exchange (until reading your post). Thanks!

Hi bro!
Good article/explanation of how to buy crypto and respectively getting started with it.
Educate tha world. :D
Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing this information because it is important to know how to sign up for reputable exchanges. I liked that you mentioned verifying information with your bank. I had to call mine and explain to them that I was authorizing charges to buy crypto because they thought my card had been stolen or something. It was a learning experience for me.

Great post! It's very well written! :)

Buy that coin dammit

Just say brother I have an older brother who opened the account. That's a lot better. When you say it, then it is believed. Thanks for the say.
