The Gemini exchange is officially licensed after the donation of $100 thousand to the electoral fund of the Governor of New York State Andrew Cuomo.

Brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, founders of Gemini donated $50,000 this April, and soon state regulators issued a license to the Gemini exchange for trading bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. After that, brothers again donated $15,000 to the fund.

It is reported that people familiar with the situation claim that there is no connection between the donation and licensing of the exchange, saying that the donation was made because the company believe in the ability of the governor.
