The VP of engineering also singled out that the exchange is experiencing various obligations in the banking and fiduciary spheres in the focus of the NYDFS — New York State Department of Financial Services.

Another thing that the VP of engineering at Gemini revealed was that Bitcoin Cash could also have been supported this week. But because of the indeterminacy within the BCH community regarding possible hard fork the exchange concluded —postpone the embrace for Bitcoin Cash. The possible hard fork of the latter, by the way, may take place in mid-November. Gemini intends to wait for it to be able to assess the «health» of the BCH system in new conditions.
