“Gemini is investigating reports of service disruptions. All customer accounts and funds remain completely secure,” the exchange said in a statement.
Earlier this week, the Gemini crypto exchange announced that customers have received a series of phishing emails from an unauthorized person. This was a result of a breach which resulted in the contact information for some Gemini customers being leaked. The Gemini product security team announced that the only available data includes email addresses and incomplete phone numbers. None of the company’s systems or funds was impacted by this breach.
