It’s been an adventurous 2019 for Voyager! We launched our iOS application in February to a waitlist of over 100,000 eager users and released our Android Beta in October. Getting Voyager into the hands of customers was a significant accomplishment, and we couldn’t be more proud of the community and the products we’ve built.
Keep reading for more of Voyager’s top moments of the year.
Going Public (VYGR.CN)
Earlier this year, we took our company public, a major milestone in building a trusted crypto solution. Holding ourselves accountable to the regulators of public markets in Canada (VYGR.CN) ensures we maintain a standard of excellence. As a publicly-traded company, we operate with the transparency we believe the crypto market deserves.
Voyager & Ethos
Recently, we completed our acquisition of Ethos, a leading Universal Wallet & Blockchain Technology provider. Ethos’ technology bridges multiple blockchain protocols and financial institutions and systems. This union expedites Voyager’s ability to support more coins for trading and blockchain transfers. Additionally, the newly branded Voyager Token (formerly known as the Ethos token) will serve a variety of functions within the Voyager trading ecosystem, particularly in our plans to integrate self-custody into the app. Learn more about the Voyager Token (VGX).
Shortly after rolling out the Voyager app on iOS, we added deposits & withdrawals for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dash, and Voyager Token.
With this update, we allowed our customers to buy, sell, store, and send crypto from one secure place. In 2020, we’ll be adding transfers for even more coins!
Limit Orders on all Assets
This year, we made limit orders available on all 30+ coins listed on Voyager. In a market as volatile as crypto, limit orders are an essential feature that gives traders control over the price their orders are executed at. Learn more about why this feature is so important here.
Partnerships and New Business
Part of Voyager’s mission is to spread crypto and its value to newcomers and traditional equities investors. In 2019, we did just that by strategically partnering with six brokers and businesses to bring Voyager’s best execution crypto trading technology to their customers. We’re proud to have developed API distribution partnerships with Avant-Garde Trading Securities, RoundlyX (Coin Savage, LLC), Market Rebellion, LLCSterling Trading TechTiger Trading, and Stocktracker.
We also integrated Ledger Vault’s institutional-grade custody system to offer our customers extra security and entered a partnership with Celsius Network.
What’s ahead in 2020?
We couldn’t be more excited for 2020 and to embark on a new decade with the Voyager community! We have several new partnerships and features lined up that we look forward to sharing with you in the upcoming year.
For starters, as of January 1, 2020, you can earn 2% interest (per annum) on Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash, in addition to 3% interest on Bitcoin and 5% on the Voyager Token held in your Voyager account.
We’re continuously looking to improve the Voyager offering and will add new creative ways for our customers to engage in the crypto market and grow wealth. Stay tuned!
