Gemini Could Meet SEC’s Proposed Custodian Rules, According to Tyler Winklevoss

Gemini Trust Company holds certifications for its custody products, including SOC 1 Type II and SOC 2 Type II.

Gemini co-founder Tyler Winklevoss believes that if the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) expands its custody rules, Gemini will qualify as a custodian.

In a Twitter thread, Winklevoss stated that Gemini Trust Company is a New York trust company that has acted as a fiduciary and qualified custodian under New York Banking Law since 2015.

He also mentioned that the company is subject to the same evaluations as banks and complies with capital, BSA/AML, and cybersecurity requirements.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler proposed to extend federal custody regulations to encompass crypto exchanges on February 15.
