Cryptocurrency exchange Gemini is the latest cryptocurrency platform to join the Crypto Council for Innovation.
A top 10 cryptocurrency exchange, Gemini joins the likes of Block, Coinbase, Fidelity Digital Assets, Paradigm, Andreessen Horowitz, and Ribbit Capital, to form part of the Crypto Council for Innovation (CCI).
The CCI is made up of industry leaders in the world of cryptocurrencies that seek to raise awareness and demystify the world of crypto. Founded in April 2021, the CCI includes Andreessen Horowitz, Block, Coinbase, Fidelity Digital Assets, Gemini, Paradigm, and Ribbit Capital.
“CCI exists to demonstrate this transformational technology’s promise internationally to policymakers and regulators, and to communicate its benefits to people around the world. To do that, we focus on separating fact from perception in the crypto space, through government relations, education more broadly, and the publication of projects addressing key issues.” the website mission states.
The addition of Gemini to CCI’s roster of members was established by CCI’s Chief Executive Officer, Sheila Warren who was recently named CEO of the Crypto Council for Innovation.
Warren is an ex World Economic Forum executive where she was head of data, blockchain, and digital assets, as well as the founder of the forum’s blockchain and distributed ledger technology platform.
The ex-Wall Street attorney welcomed Gemini in an official statement:
“We welcome Gemini as a trusted and knowledgeable stakeholder to help accelerate our growth and global leadership. We look forward to increasing awareness of digital assets and driving the evolution of financial systems to bring greater choice, agency, and opportunity to individuals and communities around the world.”
Gemini’s Head of Policy and Regulatory Affairs Ji Kim, noted:
“We are fully aligned with CCI’s mission in ensuring the continued responsible growth of crypto in a way that unlocks its potential to improve the lives of many. As a CCI member, we will continue to partner closely with policymakers and regulators around the world to help build a bridge to the future of cryptocurrency,”
