Funding your Gemini Account

The process of funding your Gemini account consists of two steps:

Verifying you Gemini Account

You will be asked to link your bank account to your Gemini Wallet. You can do this right away by clicking CONTINUE or hit “I’ll do this later” and return to this at any time.

This takes you to the next screen, where you’ll be asked to confirm your email. Once confirmed, you can begin using GEMINI immediately but only for deposits up to $500 (no withdrawals).

On the next screen hit Place Order and your purchase will be completed.

Depositing to your preferred Sportsbook Account

  2. Select Deposit
  3. Select Bitcoin
  4. Enter the amount to deposit (must be the exact amount you want to deposit)
  5. Click on Request Address

Take the address back to your Gemini account, and go to:

  1. TRANSFER at the top of the screen.
  2. WITHDRAW FROM GEMINI
  3. SELECT CURRENCY (here, choose the type of cryptocurrency you are sending. Example ‘BTC’ for Bitcoin)
  4. SELECT DESTINATION (paste the Bitcoin address you copied from the America’s Bookie Cashier)
  5. ENTER AMOUNT (make sure this matches the amount you entered in the Cashier)
  6. COMPLETE WITHDRAWAL

Your deposit will then be posted to the blockchain. It usually takes 10-60 minutes for deposits to be confirmed.

Withdrawing from your preferred Sportsbook Account

To make a withdrawal from your America’s Bookie account to Gemini, you need to tell us where shall we send your money so, simply follow these steps from Gemini:

We highly recommend withdrawing your Bitcoin out of your EDGE wallet as soon as you receive it. This way you can protect yourself against any possible drop in the value of Bitcoin.
