Gemini users can now buy Bitcoin with Apple Pay and Google Pay

Crypto exchange Gemini has integrated deposits via Apple Pay and Google Pay to simplify crypto purchases.

Bitcoin has evolved over time, starting out as electronic currency to now being touted by many as a store of value. However, for one renowned author and statistician, Bitcoin is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme. The author believes that you’re better off buying land if you want to beat inflation, but not Bitcoin.
Major American cryptocurrency exchange Gemini now lets its users purchase cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) with Apple Pay and Google Pay.

According to a Thursday announcement, Gemini users can now connect their debit cards to Apple Pay or Google Pay for buying crypto with fiat on the platform. The firm noted that user funds will be available to withdraw one hour after a purchase was made.

The new feature is available for over 30 cryptocurrencies supported on Gemini, including major coins like BTC, Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), as well as Ethereum-based tokens like AAVE, DAI and Maker's MKR. 

Gemini did not specify the amount in fees it takes for buying crypto via Apple Pay or Google Pay. The platform retains 3.49% of the total purchase amount from deposits carried out via debit card transfers, while wire transfers and crypto-to-crypto deposits are free of charge.

The cryptocurrency industry has been expanding in recent months in terms of growing integrations with traditional finance payment services like Apple Pay. In February, major crypto payment processor BitPay announced a major Apple Pay integration allowing its users to connect to Apple Wallet and pay for goods and services with digital coins like BTC, ETH and LTC. Crypto payment firm Simplex also enabled Apple Pay users to purchase the COTI cryptocurrency in March.
