We are pleased to announce that Voyager will be rebranding the Ethos Token (ETHOS) to the Voyager Token (VGX). This development demonstrates a significant step towards the integration of Ethos’ technology into the Voyager ecosystem. We believe that having a native token is a key differentiator in the growing Crypto Industry and that rebranding to VGX will benefit our customers and the crypto community as a whole.
When I first started in the financial services industry in the mid-1990s, online trading as we know it today did not exist. At the time, trades were executed over the phone (Yes, you read that right, you had to call your broker to place a trade). While working for E*TRADE, I was an integral part of the team that pioneered online trading. In 2006, I founded a company called Lightspeed Financial which disrupted the active and professional trader space. In three short years, it became the third-largest online broker in the U.S.
The Voyager team sees a similar opportunity to use our combined decades worth of experience building businesses like Uber, Pager, E*trade and more to disrupt the crypto market and solve its biggest issues.
Today, there are hundreds of crypto exchanges and liquidity providers across the globe, leading to a highly fragmented and confusing market for consumers. Voyager’s dynamic Smart Order Router aggregates the global markets in one app, saving customers both time and money on every order they place. Currently, Voyager delivers trading of nearly 30 coins with both USD and crypto funding options to U.S. customers.
The Voyager Token:
Voyager is growing fast, with plans to expand our business internationally by the end of the year and launch an Android app in October. We’re also working to offer many other crypto products including but not limited to interest bearing accounts, crypto loans, margin accounts, the ability to short cryptocurrencies, and recurring deposits. The token will be integral to these products.
To take full advantage of the token swap, we recommend that customers hold their tokens in the Ethos Universal Wallet, now a Voyager product, or in the Voyager app. ETHOS Tokens will be automatically swapped 1-1 in exchange for VGX Tokens, and there will be no changes to the smart contract or total supply.
We are incredibly excited to begin offering new features and rewards to our global community. Please follow us on Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, or Telegram for updates and download the Voyager app to start trading with the crypto broker you deserve. We look forward to serving you on your crypto journey!
