Gemini Trust, the crypto exchange run by the Winklevoss brothers, hired a fintech veteran as new head of finance even as it undergoes another round of layoffs and deals with uncertainty over whether users of its Earn program will get their money back.

Tyler Skelton, who started at Gemini earlier this month, was previously chief financial officer for North America at Till Payments, which helps businesses accept payments, according to his LinkedIn profile. He also worked as head of finance at crypto technology-and-services provider Bakkt, where he helped with a SPAC merger and led due diligence on an acquisition. The hire was confirmed by a person familiar with the matter, who declined to be named discussing internal Gemini business.
