Bitcoin is more than a personal gift—it’s an investment!
Send a gift using the bitcoin in your Gemini account. For birthdays 🎂, anniversaries 💐, holidays🎄, or just because 🎁, it’s always the right time to gift crypto.
Which cryptos can I gift?
The Gifting Crypto feature currently supports bitcoin (BTC) only. As a gifter, you’ll be able to send bitcoin from your trading balance, with more cryptos on the way!
