Top bitcoin exchanges around the world suggest greater liquidity than Gemini can yet opoffering, meaning traders on those exchanges are able to metselspecie ter and out of the market more quickly, a much more active market participants argued at the time, for profit-making.
One opzicht that came under repeated criticism wasgoed the exchange’s project to charge 25 onderstel points (0.25%) to the buyer and seller on each side of any trade.
