Web Fee Schedule

Last updated: May 7th, 2019

Web Fee Schedule

All orders placed via our website application1 (each, a “Web Order”) incur both a convenience fee (“Convenience Fee”) and a transaction fee (“Transaction Fee”); see Fee Examples. Before you place your Web Order, you will be quoted a firm price that includes the Convenience Fee (the “Quoted Price”). In addition, we will display your Transaction Fee, which is determined according to the amount of your Web Order:

Web Order Amount Transaction Fee1
Less than or equal to $10.00 $0.99
Greater than $10.00 but less than or equal to $25.00 $1.49
Greater than $25.00 but less than or equal to $50.00 $1.99
Greater than $50.00 but less than or equal to $200.00 $2.99
Greater than $200.00 1.49% of your Web Order value

The Convenience Fee is calculated at a rate of 0.50% (or 50 basis points) above the prevailing Gemini market price for a given trading pair at the time we provide you the Quoted Price. Your actual Convenience Fee may be greater or lower than 0.50% due to price movement in the market between the time we provide you the Quoted Price and the time your Web Order is filled; however, this will not affect the price you pay.

Fee Examples

Web Order Buy Example – Kristen wants to buy $100 of BTC with USD. The prevailing Gemini market price of BTC is $4000. On her website application, Kristen is provided a Quoted Price of $4020 to buy 1 BTC. This represents the Gemini market price of $4000, plus the 0.50% Convenience Fee (Gemini market price × 1.005). When Kristen enters her buy Web Order for $100 and clicks on “Review Order,” the Transaction Fee of $2.99 is displayed on her website application along with the total BTC amount of 0.02413184 (($100 -$2.99)/$4020 = 0.02413184 BTC) that she will receive for her buy Web Order. Kristen clicks on “Place Order” to place her Web Order to buy 0.02413184 BTC for $100. Fees are only incurred when her Web Order is executed.

Web Order Sell Example – Marcus wants to sell 0.03 BTC for USD. On his website application, Marcus is provided a Quoted Price of $3980 to sell 1 BTC. This represents the prevailing Gemini market price of $4000, minus the 0.50% Convenience Fee (Gemini market price × 0.995). When Marcus enters his sell Web Order for 0.03 BTC, the Transaction Fee of $2.99 is displayed on his website application along with the total proceeds amount of $116.41 ((0.03 * $3980) – $2.99 = $116.41) that he will receive for his sell Web Order. Marcus clicks on “Place Order” to place his Web Order to sell 0.03 BTC and receives $116.41. Fees are only incurred when his Web Order is executed.

The Cryptoverse™ Order Example – Ira wants to buy $100 of The Cryptoverse (a Web Order that buys a basket of the supported digital assets on Gemini weighted by market capitalization, each, a “Cryptoverse Order”). The prevailing Gemini market price of each digital asset is as follows: BTC is $4000, ETH is $150, LTC is $50, ZEC is $100, and BCH is $150. On his website application, when Ira first selects a Cryptoverse Order, the market capitalization weightings of each digital asset in the Cryptoverse Order are displayed. In this example, the market capitalization weightings displayed are: BTC is 81%, ETH is 13.5%, LTC is 1.5%, ZEC is 1%, and BCH is 3%. The Quoted Price for Ira’s Cryptoverse Order is comprised of the market capitalization weighting of each digital asset multiplied by the prevailing Gemini market price of each digital asset, plus the 0.50% Convenience Fee (prevailing Gemini market price × 1.005). When Ira enters his Cryptoverse Order to buy $100, a Transaction Fee of $2.99 is displayed on his website application and the total order amount of $100. Ira clicks on “Place Order” to place his Cryptoverse Order to buy $100 of The Cryptoverse. Ira will receive a total of 0.019547 BTC, 0.086875 ETH, 0.028958 LTC, 0.009653 ZEC, and 0.019305 BCH for his Cryptoverse Order. Fees are only incurred when his Cryptoverse Order is executed.
