The wealthy co-founder of cryptocurrency exchange Gemini, Cameron Winklevoss, has resigned from the board of directors of Gemini Europe. Gemini Europe is based in the European Union.

According to a document that was filed with Companies House on October 12, Winklevoss resigned from his position as a director of the UK-incorporated Gemini Europe, which serves as the European branch of the larger corporation.

At the same time, Gillian Lynch, the company’s new head of Ireland and the EU, replaced Blair Halliday on the board of directors. Halliday had previously served as the managing director of the UK. Also throughout the past week, Halliday made the shift to the competing exchange Kraken.

“We can confirm that this change was filed with Companies House, and it adds local leadership into the board of directors to reflect the expansion of Gemini’s business in the UK and Europe,” the company said in a statement. A spokeswoman for Gemini confirmed to Bitfinsider through email that Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss will continue in their roles as President and CEO of the company.

Gemini, which has its headquarters in New York and was established by the Winklevoss twins, recently completed the launch of its cryptocurrency exchange and custody services in Ireland. The company has been in possession of an e-money license in the country for the past half a year and has a location in Dublin, which it opened in 2021.

During its most recent investment round, during which it received $400 million in capital from investors, Gemini was estimated to be worth more than $7 billion. The corporation has ambitious goals for its expansion across Europe, going well beyond the United Kingdom and Ireland.
