A U.K. fintech firm named after one of Eddie Murphy’s early movies has hooked up with crypto royalty.

Beeks Financial Cloud Group Plc -- whose name is a reference to the 1983 film ‘Trading Places’ starring Murphy and Dan Aykroyd -- signed a pact with Gemini Exchange, the crypto trading platform run by the billionaire Winklevoss twins. The agreement will allow Beeks clients to trade Bitcoin and Ethereum through Gemini, according to a statement Wednesday.
