Gemini users can now buy cryptocurrencies with Apple Pay and Google Pay

Digital currency exchange and custodian Gemini recently announced that its users can now purchase crypto with Apple Pay and Google Pay. To use this feature, users can connect a debit card to Apple Pay or Google Pay and then buy the cryptocurrency of their choice from within the Gemini mobile app.

The new feature supports over 30 cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, Filecoin and Bitcoin Cash. Gemini is currently available in over 50 countries globally, and this feature can be availed in any country that supports Apple Pay and Google Pay.

While Gemini offers a variety of payment methods, the added Apple Pay and Google Pay functionality makes crypto transactions easier and more accessible for consumers. “The introduction of this feature lowers barriers to entry in the crypto industry by further streamlining the payment process, allowing consumers to buy crypto even more immediately – in the case of Gemini, with as little as two clicks,” said Blair Halliday, head of U.K. at Gemini. “Offering payment options such as Apple Pay and Google Pay that are already widely adopted means that the experience of buying crypto feels more familiar, secure, and trusted.”
