Voyager announces institutional partnerships

It seems like crypto trading has been going even faster despite the fact that pretty much all of the prices have plummeted. No matter how much the assets have gone down, there were still people brave enough to form their own companies, continue risking high stakes trading and most importantly, they are the ones that are still driving the industry.

Despite the fact that there are pretty much hundreds of crypto exchanges around the world at the moment, some of them still manage to stand out. Especially the big ones like Binance, or Coinbase. However, the room has been made for the smaller companies after the cryptomarket slumped in 2018. And that room has been occupied by Voyager.

What is Voyager and who can use it?

Voyager exchange

Voyager is a crypto trading platform for mobile devices. The ever-evolving world of technology always keeps us on the move and the team behind the project found it necessary to have an exclusively mobile platform. At this given moment there is no hindrance of using the application. Although the company seems to be tailor-made for US citizens, there were no clear implications that it was exclusively for them. You can check their website here.

Voyager goes institutional

The company has recently launched several partnerships with different companies, becoming one of the few crypto firms to actually opt for institutional business partnerships. Although there is no clear indication of what is going to happen between the partners there is at least some information.

The information given was a bit vague, but this was what we were able to deduce. The “retail” crypto trading app has some type of limitations for Voyager, however, this is the case for many other companies as well. The company promises its institutional customers higher liquidity, better support systems and a wider range of the crypto market.

What does Voyager offer?

Voyager institutionalThere was limited information about the assets you can access on their website. Therefore we opted to download the app and try it ourselves. It turned out that the company had planned to start with at least 15 cryptocurrencies, to begin with, and expand to 20 further down the road. However, their beta version listed about 17 cryptos in the beginning.

At this moment the app acts as a wallet as well as a crypto exchange. The wallet is powered by Voyager’s partnership with Ethos and is also planning further developments to the platform by adding stop-loss and take-profit options. At the moment all of the payments will be processed in the market.

The registration is fast and easy. After downloading it prompts you to register, with just an email address and a phone number. After that, you log in, quickly register your payment methods and start trading immediately. The information displayed is very simplified so as to not confuse the user, so user experience gets a personal plus from me.

Is it safe?

Voyager addresses safety multiple times on its website. Saying that it is being powered only by the state of the art security precautions. We also tried viewing other reviews and user opinions about the platform and nobody has reported having any problems so far. It is safe to trust the company as it had multiple ways of learning from other firms’ missteps in the past. The platform can safely be branded as secure.
