It’s been a groundbreaking year of growth and accomplishment for Voyager!
We have flourished in every way – we topped over $200 million assets under management (AUM), Voyager broke into the top 25 in the finance category of Google Play, we grew our supported coins to over 50 digital assets, introduced new coins to our interest program, expanded our social community by hitting over 18 thousand followers on Twitter, and so much more!
Also, this year, Voyager was awarded the Benzinga People’s Choice Award. We want to thank the entire Voyager community and Benzinga for being a part of the journey and helping us achieve one of our most significant accomplishments of the year.

Voyager Acquires Circle Invest
In February, Voyager acquired Circle Invest and welcomed Circle Invest users to the Voyager platform. As a part of this merger, we added Circle Invest’s recurring buys feature to the Voyager app in early May so you can invest in your favorite assets without having to worry about timing the market.
With the addition of Circle Invest customers, Voyager became one of the largest digital-asset-only agency brokers in the U.S.
Voyager's Interest Rates
A large focus for Voyager this year was on introducing and growing our interest program. What better way to do that than by offering better interest rates than any bank? We’ve expanded our interest program to include over 20 coins featuring Bitcoin, stablecoins, DeFi coins, and altcoins.
In September, we skyrocketed our interest rates up to 8.5% interest (APR) and began offering a 1% interest booster on USDC, BTC, and ETH when you hold 10,000 VGX.
Reminder! You can swap your USD for USDC 1:1 and earn 8.5% interest (APR). There is no cost to swap!
Voyager Offers 50+ Digital Assets
Throughout 2020 we have added over 20 coins to the Voyager app bringing us to a total offering of 55 coins. The new coins added feature three stablecoins, 11 DeFi coins, and several altcoins!
This year, Voyager became the #1 Altcoin Destination in the U.S., where you can purchase the widest selection of altcoins directly with USD.
The Golden Record Broadcast
Back in October, our CEO and Co-founder Steve Ehrlich, alongside host and storyteller Charlie Shrem, started The Golden Record, a live broadcast to discuss the crypto market and answer all your burning questions about the Voyager app. They cover a wide range of topics, including what’s hot in the crypto market and the most up to date information and clarity on what’s to come for Voyager.
Stay tuned for more live Golden Record broadcasts coming in the new year!
Part of Voyager’s mission is to spread crypto and its value to newcomers and traditional equities investors. And in 2020, we did just that!
We have partnered with multiple athletes, many inducted into their respective sports’ Hall of Fame, to bring Voyager’s best execution crypto trading technology to their communities and fans. We’re proud to have developed partnerships with NBA legend Tracy McGrady and NFL star Marshall Faulk.
This year, we also partnered with Market Rebellion, a leading provider of trading education, content, and tools for independent investors, to help bring crypto to their platform. Now Market Rebellion users have access to all of Voyager’s offerings!
We look forward to bringing on new partners to team Voyager in 2021!
Voyager X LGO
Also in October, we announced our merger with Regulated French Entity, LGO SAS. This merger has paved a regulated path for Voyager to enter into the European market. The LGO Token will later combine with VGX in a rare token merger event. The token swap will take place in early 2021.
We are excited to welcome LGO token holders to the Voyager community and can’t wait to take Voyager to Europe!

Voyager's Desktop Beta Application
To help bring the year to a close, we released our new Desktop Beta Application to the first group of 250 users in mid-December. All users were randomly selected and given early access to provide feedback on our Desktop Application.
Another group of users will be randomly selected to test the beta in early January. You can still sign up for a chance to be a part of the next group of beta users here. We are so excited to unveil our Desktop Application to the public!
What's Ahead in 2021?
As 2020 comes to an end, we could not be more excited for 2021! Next year is shaping up to be a very exciting and promising year for crypto, as crypto is well on its way to going mainstream.
Next year, our goal is to continue to grow the Voyager community and platform and enable the best crypto experience for our users to build their wealth. We also plan on expanding to both Canada and Europe in the new year!
This upcoming year we will also be launching our debit card, enabling transfers on more of our digital assets, and so much more!
Thank you for coming along on the ride to making Voyager the best crypto broker and platform for you. We wish you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy new year. Stay tuned for what’s to come in 2021; you won’t want to miss it!
