Uber Co-Founder and Former E*TRADE CEO to Launch New Crypto Trading Platform: ‘Voyager’

A talented team of industry leaders from Silicon Valley and Wall Street, including Uber Co-Founder Oscar Salazar and former E*TRADE CEO Stephen Ehrlich, has announced their intention to release a new cryptocurrency trading platform. The platform will be called ‘Voyager’ and is branded as a “mobile application that 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.”

What is Voyager?

The new Voyager platform is planned to act as a one-stop access point for cryptocurrency holders and traders to manage their digital assets without commissions or minimums.

“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,” reads today’s press release.

A Revolutionary New Product

With new cryptocurrency projects being announced almost daily, it can often be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. However, what clearly sets Voyager apart from the competition from its onset is the talented team behind the project. The statements published by Voyager Digital CEO Stephen Ehrlich in today’s press release make it clear that the company is serious when it comes to bringing crypto traders a revolutionary new product on par with the best trading platforms available on mainstream asset-trading sites.

“We looked at what was currently available for investors to participate in this market and agreed there needs to be a better way,” says Ehrlich.

Voyager Digital appears to be particularly keen on appealing to both retail and institutional investors:

“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”

Key Features

The Voyager Mobile App is set to come with a number of key features:

  • 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
  • High speed fiat/coin and coin/coin trading at better pricing and no commissions
  • News, social feeds and alerts to keep users connected to the market
  • Intuitive interface and advanced tools to trade, research ideas and track investments
  • Best-in-class 24/7 customer service through instant chat and phone

Timeline and Availability

The new Voyager App is currently in beta testing with a target date to launch sometime during Quarter 4 of this year. The app will be available to users in California, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire and Montana. The Voyager team plans to register additional states shortly following the initial launch.

“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,” Says former UBER CTO and Voyager Co-Founder Oscar Salazar.
