Voyager Crypto App Review: Claim $25 FREE Bitcoin Now - If Voyager Wasn't Available in Your State Before, it Probably is NOW!

Voyager App Review

Voyager has expanded support to include *almost* every state in the US!  But even if you're not in one of these states but still in the US, we suggest signing up because soon it will be available where you live. So today, we're doing a Voyager app review.

Throw in that they'll give you $25 to start off with (if you register here before downloading the app) and it's official, you have no excuses!

Note: You must sign up on the website before installing the app, then download the app and use the same e-mail address on both. 

That's because the app automatically does the price hunting for you.  You'd be surprised how much the price of the same coin can vary from exchange to exchange. The price we're generally seeing is really just the average number, taken from a variety of sources. So if BTC is around $3980 on some exchanges, and closer to $4020 on others, sites that give you the current price will simply say $4000.

Most traders have their exchange of choice, and don't even bother checking the price elsewhere.  If you decide to start, get ready to spend a lot of time signing up to all these exchanges, if you do it on the fly, by the time you've opened an account on the exchange with the lower price, you may have already missed your chance.

With Voyager, not only will it find the lowest price - but you don't even need an account anywhere else.  From 1 app you'll be buying from multiple exchanges seamlessly. This was one of the the best features I discovered while doing this Voyager app review.

The next thing people assume is that a tool like this comes with some kind of membership fee, or high trading fee, but Voyager has neither.  Membership is free, no monthly or annual costs, and they only make money if they can find a coin for you below market prices - taking a cut of the savings.  No savings means they they make nothing - so they have an incentive to aggressively find the best deals.

“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 company as a whole has been making some pretty big moves, recently becoming publicly traded and buying out universal wallet creator Ethos.

You can sign up for the $25 credit and get the Voyager crypto app here.

Voyager to Offer Cost Basis Tax Analysis, Reporting for Customers Trading Crypto Assets...

Voyager, a new and licensed commission-free crypto asset brokerage, today announced that it has teamed with Silver Cost Basis, a leading provider of business and technology solutions for the investment services industry, to provide cryptocurrency cost basis tax analysis and processing for Voyager customers.

Delivering on its goal to bring a customer-first, transparent crypto trading platform to the market, Voyager will further enhance the user experience by providing real-time realized and unrealized gain/loss analysis and fully compliant investor tax information, through its integration with Silver’s cryptocurrency cost basis processing solution.

Steve Ehrlich, Voyager CEO said: “Voyager was developed to provide a single access point for investors to efficiently and securely manage all their crypto assets in one place. Silver’s cost basis and tax analysis tools add an important layer to our differentiated solutions and underscore our commitment to provide customers with the ability to trade crypto assets in a stable, safe and cost-efficient environment with the same confidence that they have come to expect from more established markets.” Ehrlich added that this integration builds on Voyager’s existing offerings, which include delivering best execution via smart order routing technology, wallet, self-custody, as well as access to pertinent news and alerts, social feeds, research and customer service.

For more than a decade, Silver has been recognized as an industry-leading regulatory securities cost basis solution. Building on its legacy of compliance and innovation, Silver has emerged as the leader in the cryptocurrency cost basis space. Silver processes all types of cryptocurrency activity including coin/fiat and coin/coin trades in any coin and any fiat, payments in coin, airdrops and other income events, and hard forks and token exchanges. The system applies regulatory treatment for the many aspects of cryptocurrency activity that fall under established taxation rules and offers per-account, per-event choice for the aspects where the rules remain uncertain.

"By leveraging our production-proven securities cost basis capabilities, we are uniquely positioned to offer a scalable cryptocurrency cost basis processing,” said Neal Ruskin, Silver's Managing Partner responsible for product strategy. “We address the significant recordkeeping burden taxpayers face today as well as the inevitable information reporting requirements to be imposed moving forward. Our solution will provide year-end statements that investors can use to prepare their returns and will transition to regulatory reporting as soon as required.”

Voyager previously announced that its retail mobile trading app is expected to launch in Q4 2018 with its Silver Cost Basis integration expected in early 2019.

Voyager platform prepares for launch - announces new partnership with Ethos...

A few weeks ago we covered the announcement of the soon to launch Voyager platform, created by former executives from Uber and E-Trade.

The platform will allow fiat to crypto purchases, by acting as virtual broker - finding which exchange has the coin you want at the lowest price, and executing the trade all within the Voyager app.

At that time it wasn't yet clear where the coin would go from there - keeping in mind that the Voyager app could find the coin on any of the 20 exchanges it's algorithm searches for the best price, and at some point these tokens need to end up in 1 wallet.

Today we have an answer, as Voyager has confirmes a strategic partnership with leading wallet provider Ethos.

“With this transformative partnership in place, we believe we are offering the first end to end, fully integrated solution in the crypto asset space. We are always seeking out products and solutions that enhance the experience for crypto investors and these best-in-class solutions from Ethos are a perfect complement for us, further strengthening our offerings and goal of operating a unique, pure-play, open architecture platform.” says Stephen Ehrlich, CEO of Voyager.

Shingo Lavine, the CEO of Ethos will also be officially joining the Voyager Advisory Board “This partnership creates a true bridge between traditional and institutional finance within the crypto-asset market to create a dynamic and borderless financial ecosystem” says Lavine.

Voyager is set to launch soon and is currently in it's beta phase of development.  Currently, interested users can put their name on the wait-list for early access.

The soon to launch licensed crypto brokerage platform "Voyager" prepares to welcome institutional investors with new hire...

Voyager, a new and licensed crypto-asset broker that provides investors with a turnkey solution to trade crypto-assets, today announced that Glenn Barber has joined as Chief Institutional Officer of Voyager Institutional. Voyager Institutional is a newly formed business line that will focus solely on delivering its best-in-class crypto trading solution to traditional buy-side firms, hedge funds, brokerages and market makers, among other professional investors. In his role, Barber is charged with cultivating relationships, driving broader awareness of the brand, and activating new accounts throughout the institutional community. The institutional rollout is expected to commence late in Q4 2018.

The timing of Barber’s hiring and the establishment of Voyager Institutional stems in part from the immediate and increasing institutional demand that Voyager has experienced since it announced plans this summer to launch its first offering later this year – a commission-free mobile trading application for retail investors that delivers best execution via smart order routing technology.

Stephen Ehrlich, CEO of Voyager, said: “Expanding our offering and leveraging our infrastructure to include the institutional community was always a part of our long-term strategic roadmap. Based on the sheer number of conversations since we announced our retail offering, it’s clear that there is a void in the marketplace and an immediate desire by institutions to participate in and offer their clients access to this emerging asset class without the significant resources, costs and time that would be required to develop an in-house solution." Ehrlich noted that institutional investors would be able to connect to the Voyager infrastructure by writing directly to its APIs, thereby enabling them to offer crypto trading to their clients while maintaining their existing user interfaces.

Speaking about the firm’s new Chief Institutional Officer Ehrlich said: “Glenn’s capital markets acumen and deep industry relationships are exactly what we need to create optimal solutions for this critical universe of investors. He is an accomplished relationship manager and business-builder who has a proven track record of harnessing technology to improve the client experience and bottom line.”

“It’s invigorating to join a team that encompasses such a unique combination of trading, expertise, market structure knowledge and disruptive technology professionals. Our goal is to bring the level of access, connectivity and innovation that institutional investors, in particular, are seeking in order to effectively participate in crypto trading” said Barber.

Barber is based in the firm’s NYC headquarters and reports directly to Ehrlich.

Barber was most recently Managing Director of Equities and Co-Head of the NY-based Global Program Sales desk at Deutsche Bank. Prior to that he was Managing Director, Equities at Barclays Capital, Inc., where he was a desk head and the lead business sponsor for building out their international program trading offering. Other roles included being a Managing Director at Lehman Brothers and a number of other equity positions in Asia, Europe and the Americas.
