Commission-Free Crypto Trading App Rolled Out By Voyagerbr>
Crypto brokerage Voyager has officially rolled out its mobile app for commission-free trading of major cryptocurrencies.
Voyager is a crypto-asset broker that provides retail and institutional investors with a turnkey solution to trade cryptocurrencies. The company is headed by Stephen Ehrlich, the former CEO and founder of retail brokerage Lightspeed Financial, who also previously ran the professional trading arm of online stock broker E*Trade. Voyager’s other co-founders include Oscar Salazar, former Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at Uber, and Philip Eytan, an early Uber investor.
The Voyager app, which was first announced in July 2018, provides a single access point for investors to buy and sell cryptocurrencies with no commissions. The app features include instant account opening and funding in USD with a $10 minimum, price improvement available on many orders, high speed fiat/coin trading, wallet and self-custody solutions, and advanced charting, real-time market data and analytics. It currently supports 18 of the largest and most liquid crypto assets, including bitcoin, ethereum and others.
“Our vision to bring the crypto brokerage experience in line with what investors have come to expect from equity markets is now a reality,” said Stephen Ehrlich, Voyager Co-Founder and CEO. “We knew there was a better way for investors to access a cost-efficient and transparent platform validated by our overwhelmingly positive feedback and demand from investors who are eager to start using our platform.”
The iOS version of the app is now available in Arizona, California, Illinois Kentucky Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana and Wisconsin, states in which residents are already approved to trade cryptocurrencies. The company said that they instituted a measured roll-out to continue to be highly responsive to client needs.
“As Voyager’s applications with more key states are approved, those wait listed users will be invited and on-boarded respectively, with a goal of ultimately having more than 40 approved states by the end of 2019,” Voyager said.
