Winklevoss-Led Gemini Expands Into Crypto Collectibles With Its First Acquisition
According to the recent announcement, Gemini has acquired Nifty Gateway, a platform that enables the purchase and management of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The acquisition will bring Nifty Gateway under the Gemini banner, enabling the company to leverage Gemini’s established brand.
“Non-fungible tokens and the digital goods (and collectibles) they enable will play a major role in the next era of the digital economy,” said Tyler Winklevoss. “They are the perfect form factor for crypto-collectibles, crypto-art, and much more — laying the foundation for entirely new multi-billion dollar industries to emerge.”
Nifty Gateway helps increase access to NFTs by connecting directly to blockchain games and collectibles platforms like OpenSea, enabling users to buy directly with a credit card.
The acquisition price has not been disclosed.
