    So I've been using my Gemini exchange account to buy and sell bitcoin for gambling. This week I got the following email from Gemini threatening to close my account if I continue to use it for the purposes of online gambling. Has anyone else received this?

    “As gambling activity is generally illegal within the United States, Gemini cannot permit our customers to utilize our services to store, send or receive wagers or proceeds of online gambling. Gemini monitors customer accounts closely for transfers related to gambling, and for attempts to conceal transfers to or from gambling related sites.

    You must stop using your account for gambling activity and please complete the attached gambling attestation form. Failure to comply with the request may result in the closure of your account.

    Please send the signed form to our secure Gemini DropZone at. This DropZone link will securely encrypt and upload your files into our system. This DropZone is directly linked to your account application and should be used for all document submission requests.”

    did you use a non-custodial wallet like brd or blockstream green or did you send bitcoin directly from gemini to your bookmaker?
