“We are definitely considering it and making sure that we have that option. We are watching the market and we are also having internal discussions on whether it makes sense for us at this point in time. We are certainly open to it.”
The »Winklevoss Twins« also commented on their Bitcoin holdings, saying that they already have plenty exposure to BTC and are not currently looking to increase their holdings at the moment.

While it’s not among the biggest crypto exchanges by trading volume, it has nevertheless established a solid reputation among cryptocurrency users and has been successfully keeping its clients’ crypto assets safe, with no reported security breaches.
The exchange, which was previously known for only listing a very limited number of crypto assets, seems to have adjusted its listing policy in 2020, adding a slew of crypto assets to its platform. The company recently announced a credit card that pays rewards in the form of Bitcoin.
