Voyager, a new multi-exchange crypto asset brokerage startup, to launch a commission-free mobile trading in fourth quarter
Voyager Digital, a licensed U.S. crypto-asset brokerage startup, has unveiled its plans to launch a zero-fee mobile trading app in Q4 this year, according to a public press release. The company announced today it’s formally launching its first offering, a commission-free mobile trading application in the fourth quarter of 2018. The app will provide retail investors an institutional-grade platform delivering best execution via smart order routing technology for trading a wide choice of popular crypto assets commission-free. Voyager will also provide a single access point for investors to efficiently and securely manage all their crypto assets in one place, with no commissions and no minimums.
Founded by Silicon Valley and Wall Street veterans, Voyager was developed to provide investors and traders with the trust, accessibility and efficiency that a modern online brokerage offers while addressing their growing needs for navigating this emerging asset class through a turnkey solution. A customer-first experience, Voyager facilitates the trading of a wide universe of digital assets across many exchanges and market makers. Voyager’s Co-Founders bring more than 80 years of experience in financial services and technology at companies like E*Trade, Uber, Lightspeed, Kapitall, Trade.it, and Pager.
“A shared vision for how impactful this alternative asset class will become coupled with a belief that crypto-assets are empowering a new generation of investors is what brought us to launch Voyager,” said Stephen Ehrlich, Co-Founder and CEO. “We looked at what was currently available for investors to participate in this market and agreed there needs to be a better way. Investors deserve an offering that is stable, safe and cost-efficient, and that provides them with the best features and functionality, including responsive customer service. They will have all of this with the launch of Voyager and be able to trade crypto assets with the same confidence that they have come to expect from more established markets.”
“Our multi-exchange platform will help aggregate and unify a largely fragmented ecosystem, offering retail investors fast execution and better pricing. Additionally, we have developed and adopted best-in-class security practices in line with banking, brokerage and healthcare standards offering investors a safe and secure environment to invest in this new asset class,” Ehrlich added.
The Voyager Mobile App features include: Instant account opening and funding in fiat and crypto currencies with no minimums, access to no less than 15 of the most popular digital assets, smart order routing through the optimal mix of exchanges based on market conditions, and high speed fiat/coin and coin/coin trading at better pricing and no commissions.
“Our goal is to become a trusted agent and guide users through the new world of cryptos. So we created an open architecture platform that is fully scalable to deliver a simple and intuitive user interface,” said Oscar Salazar, Founding Investor at Voyager and formerly Founding Chief Technology Officer at UBER. “It also provides access to a suite of tools and functionality including trading alerts, social media feeds and news, all to help users make smarter and more informed decisions.”
Voyager is currently in beta testing phase with plans to launch in Q4 2018 to residents in California, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, and Montana. Applications to register in more key States are pending with a goal of ultimately having more than 40 approved States.
