Cameron Winklevoss, who founded crypto exchange Gemini with his twin brother Tyler in 2014, has stepped down as a director of Gemini's European division.

Winklevoss' move was revealed on Oct 12 in a filing with Companies House, a registry of companies in the U.K. The move coincides with Gemini receiving virtual asset service provider registration in Ireland to provide crypto services there.

Gillian Lynch, Gemini's head of Ireland and Europe, has been appointed to Gemini Europe's board.

Gemini also confirmed that Blair Halliday, its former head of U.K., has left the company's board. Halliday has joined rival exchange Kraken where he will serve as managing director for Kraken's U.K. operations.
