Regulated and Insured
Gemini is a U.S. company regulated as a limited purpose trust company by the New York State Department of Financial Services.
Each GUSD corresponds to a U.S. dollar that is held by Gemini as one of the following types of assets: (1) deposits in U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC")-insured banks, (2) money market funds, invested only in U.S. Treasury Obligations, or (3) U.S. Treasury Obligations. The U.S. dollar cash portion of these GUSD reserves, which may be held at Silvergate Bank, State Street Bank and Trust Company or Signature Bank, may be eligible for FDIC “pass through” insurance for Gemini customers in the event that the bank holding such U.S. dollar cash deposits becomes subject to resolution or similar proceedings by the FDIC.
Overall, Gemini Trust makes use of a centralized system that helps protect against security threats, giving the Gemini dollar key regulatory advantages over many of its competitors.
