How to deposit SGD to Gemini

How to deposit SGD to Gemini

UPDATE (Jan 26, 2021)

Please note that Gemini now supports integrated with Xfers to allow direct FAST deposit transfers and withdrawals of SGD via local banks. Do follow their step-by-step guide HERE:

Latest from Gemini staff (Jan 12):

Disclaimer: This is the latest info from Gemini (Click image to enlarge!). For those of you who are using this, would appreciate if you can confirm whether it works in the comments below, thanks!

While CoinHako and Coinbase are convenient and easy to use, people are looking for a cheaper alternative to buy Bitcoin/ETH with SGD. This is a guide for people who are looking to buy Bitcoin at a lower price.

Gemini is an exchange started by the Winklevoss twins. Account opening and verification takes around 2 days if you send in proper documentation.

Adding bank account to Gemini

The first step is to add a bank account to Gemini. Personally I used the USD(Bank Transfer).

Gemini SGD

You will then receive an email with the instructions on how to transfer to their Gemini account.

Transferring SGD to Gemini

The best way to transfer to Gemini is to use DBS Remit, $0 fees and same day transfer (Disclaimer: I am not an employee of DBS).

For the fields:

Recipient name: “Gemini Trust Company LLC”

Address: “600 Third Avenue, 2nd Fl
New York, NY 10016
United States Of America”

Recipient bank: Choose “Other banks in United States”, and the Swift Code is “PCBBUS66”

Recipient account number: 1000808012

Clearing code: “322286803”

Please remember to include the unique letters assigned to your account under “memo” or “instructions”. For timeline, I deposited SGD before 2pm, and I got the money in my Gemini account at around 11.30pm.

If you are looking for a fast way to buy Bitcoin/ETH with SGD, you can refer to my previous article here.

*Disclaimer: Please verify all the fields in the TT before making the transfer. We will not take responsibilities if the information for Gemini changed.

Comparision of Coinhako vs Gemini

Coinhako – 0.9% trading fees (use code “COINGECKO to reduce it to 0.7%) + FX

Gemini – 0% remittance fees + DBS FX + 0.25% trading fees

    Can you post the instructions for depositing SGD to Bittrex too ?

    Hi Pennywise!

    Could you provide some final clarification about a working method through DBS REMIT? The method you describe is outright said to be wrong in the screenshot you provide, thus confusing… and there are various different success and failure stories littering the comments.

    Thanks a lot!

    Just sharing my experience, it might be helpful to someone in similar position.

    For those who had made a transfer with the incorrect transfer details (in my case, I used the old SSI where Pacific Coast was the bene bank), you can actually go down to any DBS bank to amend your remittance details before the bene bank has returned the funds. There is a SGD$30 charge on the DBS end and a USD $25 by the bank that had received your funds. This make sense for those who are remitting a considerable amount and would be hit by hefty FX losses shall funds the funds end up being returned.

    I transferred using ‘clearing code’ column filled with 121042484 (Pacific Coast ABA). On the message column, I wrote: “Credit to Silvergate Bank (ABA 322286803, account no 1000808012). Memo XXXX”

    It seems like the handler on Pacific Bank is still human (to understand and read the message). so my money transferred at 5AM Singapore time, went in to Gemini by 10 PM.

    After reading this, I’d probably put Silvergate ABA for the clearing code.

    Use wire transfer.

    Account number: 1000808012
    600 Third Avenue, 2nd Fl
    New York, NY 10016
    United States Of America

    Recipient bank: Choose “Other banks in United States”

    Receiving Bank : Silvergate Bank
    Swift Code : SIVGUS21XXX

    Leave blank for clearing code.

    Try 1 or 2 small amount first like $10.
    So far if send before 5pm deposit cleared overnight by 2-3am.

Trying my luck now with clearing code 322286803. crossing fingers it won’t bounce back because damn, the bank is making a killing with these fees.

        I had sent a transfer in November with ABA 121042484 and it went through overnight with no issues.
        I sent another one on 8th Jan as it was already registered in my DBS bank account as a payee and all i did was to add the “memo”. This time it did not go through.
        Meanwhile my friend has sent another one but he used ABA 322286803 and he got it overnight.
        Now my funds are stuck. Got confirmation sms from DBS bank that funds transfer is successful but not showing up on Gemini yet. Went to the local branch and they said that it is out of Singapore. Need to send a tracer request or cancellation request or wait for funds to come back automatically and she said charges depends on agent banks.
        The instructions in the Gemini webpage for deposit USD wire transfer is not the same as the one sent to your email. Very confusing indeed…
        Cannot edit the payee details in DBS. must delete payee and create from scratch.

          i did the same in the past. when initially created and transferred, there was no issue.

          however, when i tried to repeat it with the existing account, it couldnt go thru.

          i realised that by deleting the existing account and recreating the receiving account did the trick.

          no issues so far. just delete n recreate.

          Update: I had to spend 35 SGD to send a tracer and amend the wire transfer to reflect Silvergate bank clearing code and then it was in my account a couple of days later.
          I just did a transfer recently and so I deleted the favourite payee in DBS and created a new one with the following details and it worked like a charm. Funds were in my account by midnight.
          BRANCH: left blank

    1. Customer Name on Bank Account

    hi there,

    I made a similar DBS Remit wire of $2000 to Pacific Coast with Silvergate’s account number – 1000808012. However, I accidentally left out the ABA/Clearing code as the field said ‘optional.’

    Do you have an idea of what happens to the funds then? My current options are to head down to the bank to place a tracer/amendment but I was wondering if the funds will get returned to my account eventually because the information was incomplete.

    Posted at 11:55h, 21 December Reply

    Guys please stop using Pacific coast’s aba number when you do the remit thru ibanking. Til now there are plenty of rejections because of this ABA number.

    Because of this issue we are flooded with rejections. Inevitably will take longer to return the funds back to your account.

    If you are transferring large sums from your SGD account and think that the funds are rejected, suggest you open a multi currency account and go to the branch to submit a cancellation request to credit returned funds in USD to that multi currency account. Or not you’ll suffer the fx loss

      I did a transfer on 14 Dec and funds did not go through as usual. So got a bit worried and emailed Gemini’s support but did not get any replies. So I messaged them on Twitter and got a response quite fast. Support wasn’t that great and was intending to go to DBS to put a trace but lo and behold, my funds were returned to my account this morning. 5 working days after I made the transfer.

      Hope this helps whoever is having issues with the funds transfer!

      What’s the chances a trace is useful?
      My deposit has been done for a week and it’s still not in yet.
      Ive done previous transactions to Gemini and this is the first time I’m having issues.
      Contacted Gemini and they insisted that the funds did not reach them, so I have to contact my bank.

      It means that if my banks cant find anything from the trace, my money is just gone this way??

    Seems like many of you are confused with which ABA routing number to use and how the whole thing works.

    In a nutshell, there are FIVE PARTIES in this fund transfer and they are you, DBS, Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank, Silvergate Bank and Gemini.

    When you want to transfer your fund from DBS to Gemini, you need to send to Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank which is the MIDDLEMAN.

    PCBBUS66 is the SWIFT code for Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank (aka the middleman). You can google the SWIFT code and it points to Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank.

    Now this middleman needs to transfer the fund which they have received from DBS to Silvergate Bank. In order to do this, Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank needs to know the ABA routing number of Silvergate Bank and this is where you need to put in Silvergate Bank’s ABA routing number 322286803 during your fund transfer in DBS.

    Once Silvergate Bank has received the fund sent by Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank (aka the middleman), they will debit it into Gemini’s account 1000808012.

    Hope this will clear up some confusion here.

            Anyone faces the same thing?

            @Trav, good for you. Can just resend using the 3xxx ABA.

            It’s been 7 days for me since 7 Dec and I still don’t know where the hell is my $$.

            So which shift code should I give now?
            Please could you clarify the steps.

            Recipient name: “Gemini Trust Company LLC”
            Address: “600 Third Avenue, 2nd Fl
            New York, NY 10016
            United States Of America”

            Recipient bank: Choose “Other banks in United States”, and the Swift Code is “PCBBUS66”
            ==> Should we need to give Silver Gate Swift code now instead of PCBBU66? Or Dont need Swift code?

            Recipient account number: 1000808012

            Clearing code: “322286803”
            This above two remains same right?

            After waiting for few days, I got my money back. I wired transferred using the ABA 121042484 on Dec 14. I became nervous when I read this thread regarding the update of clearing code. Tried to email Gemini many times but no response. Fortunately, they returned back my money on Dec 19th automatically w/o any notification. I just checked my POSB transaction history. The bank code is ITT ( Inward Telegraphic Transfer). My money was less S$10, so i believed that’s for the charges.
            Then I tried to wire transfer yesterday afternoon (Dec 19). I amended in POSB recipient details, now using the ABA 322286803 and it reached to my Gemini wallet this morning.

    Very useful guide, but I’m still confused. So first step is to click on Gemini’s bank settings and input our own DBS local bank account info or DBS remit account info? If DBS remit account info, where do I find it?

    Hi Wuffle,

    I am trying to setup my USD(Bank Transfer) but there is no button on Gemini Bank Settings page and it only directed me to creating Wire Transfer. Instead I created USD (Wire Transfer), is there a difference? or any other additional charges or notes that I should look out for?

    Regards, HC

          I also sent mine just last friday around 10am KL/SG time, and received confirmation that my transfer was successful, however till now it hasnt reflected yet in my Gemini account. Could there be something went wrong with the transaction? I followed the guide provided above and indicated the unique letters assigned to my account under “memo” or “instructions”.

            I transferred money last December 7 at 2am. DBS has confirmed on their side. The money still hasn’t reflected on my Gemini account. its been more than 3 business days already. I sent a note to their customer support. No reply yet. Getting Anxious.

            I also sent fund on 7 Dec. My money is neither in Gemini nor back to DBS. WTH.

      I am in the same situation as you . How many days has it been.Pacific Coast Bankers ABA routing number i received in the email is 121042484 which seems to be different from the one here. Could it have anything to do with that ?

        I think, there should be no issue with clearing code/routing as this is optional when you add a bank account in DBS .. I have been using ABA routing number: 121042484 ever since. All my transferring was OK except this Dec 11, which is not yet transferred to my Gemini account.

        Anyone of you emailed Gemini Support about this?

          I had previously sent 2 deposits in as many weeks and I received the money within 24h. On my end, there was no option to enter an ABA code just the BIC / SWIFT code and Account number. Given that none of those have changed, my 3rd deposit was rejected and automatically returned to my account. It was sent last Friday and returned on Tuesday. After finally getting a reply from Support, they said they couldn’t see the funds in their account and my bank says the transaction was successful, meaning the clearing bank is the issue in all of this.

          Not sure what to advise at the moment since I can’t seem to get a clear explanation from Gemini or my bank. Reluctant to resend but glad I at least got the money back so quickly.

    For the ABA Routing Number, we use the Pacific Coast one ?
    There is another one given for the receiving bank and it appeared at the top in the pop-up together with the SWIFT code and Recipient account number.

    For deposits of higher amounts (>$1K USD), would it be cheaper to remit using TransferWise/WorldFirst ?

      Hello, I’ve not tried TransferWise so I cant advise on that. Yes use the intermediary Pacific Coast Bank.

      Gemini will not accept remittance originating from a third party. They check that the deposit is coming from your registered account indicated in their account settings.

    Based on your guide, I opened an account with Gemini today. However when I selected Singapore as my country of residence, the system said that Singapore is currently not supported. But under their areas of operation, Gemini has stated very clearly that Singapore is one of the international areas that they operate.

    May I know do you encounter this issue when you register?

    Thank you.

      As a fellow Gemini accountholder from Singapore, I opened my account with them in August 2017 and did not encounter any problem. You may wish to send an email to them.

    Just to update and share.

    I sent my USD fund to Gemini via DBS Remit before 3pm SG time. It took less than 10 hours for the fund to reach and be reflected in my Gemini account.

      Quick question

      So DBS Remit only works for 4 banks (ie Zero fees for CitiBank, Bank of America, Morgan Chase, WellsFargo).

      And Gemini’s bank is not one of these 4 , how did you manage to use DBS Remit and how did you get it done in a day?

      I had to pay a USD 18.45 fee just to send the money there

      • Leonard Lim
        Posted at 02:14h, 07 October Reply


        By selecting DBS Remit (not the usual overseas transfer) and sending USD to Gemini in USD, DBS should not charge you for handling commission and cables (SGD 5 + SGD 20 = approximately USD 18.45 based on today’s rate).

        For USD outward payments, DBS routes the USD deposit through Bank of New York to Gemini’s bank. By initiating your deposit before 5 pm SG time, the deposit will be received by Gemini’s bank when US starts work; if no public holidays and other complications the fund should reached within a day.

          Appreciate the info given above. I am also an exisiting user of the DBS Remit service and so far the process has been done in less than 12hrs.

          However I would like to clarify if it is unusual for a deposit done over a Sunday morning (first time doing so) to still be pending in my Gemini account right now, and if so how long should it take before the funds are deposited onto my account, thank you.

            Posted at 01:50h, 17 October


            As a follow Gemini user, so far them have been quite efficient. If you sent a deposit on a Sunday, you need to wait for the US bank to open on Monday (our Monday night) to process the pending payments accumulated over the weekend. Give them another 24 hours to clear your deposit. If two days later still no credit you may then want to send Gemini a support ticket.

    I was trying to pay Gemini via DBS Remit.

    However, after the fields Recipient’s Account Number and Clearing Code (Optional), there was no other field (memo/instruction) to enter the unique letters assigned to me for the deposit.

    Can you advise? Thanks.

      My bad. I cancelled the transfer, went out and initiated a new DBS Remit transfer again, the field Payment Details for Recipient(if any) appears for me to fill in the unique letters.

      Best Regards.

    Very helpful guide! So when you did the DBS Remit, you totally left out the Gemini-provided Receiving Bank info but entered the Intermediary Bank info instead?
