“Voyager delivered strong results in our second fiscal quarter of 2021, including record revenue and Assets Under Management (AUM) growth even with the headwinds of COVID-19,” said Stephen Ehrlich, Co-founder and CEO of Voyager. “We believe this is due to the increasing utilization of digital assets by mainstream investors and the continued adoption of our trusted, state-of-the-art trading platform. More than ever, customers are turning to the Voyager Platform as a one-stop-shop for the superior trading execution, diverse coin offerings, and the security and market-leading interest program that it offers. As a result of these drivers, we have seen our average net deposits grow substantially in early 2021, with our AUM now over USD$265 million.”

Our platform was designed to provide excellent trading execution in both up and down markets because we know that’s what our customers want, to take advantage of trading opportunities that arise when the markets move in either direction. Throughout 2020, we worked tirelessly to enhance the Voyager platform and now, our customers can trade 55 digital assets while earning interest on over 20 of those assets. We have made incredible progress and I personally want to thank all of our business partners and employees for contributing to our growth and success this past year.”
Mr. Ehrlich added, “As widespread adoption of cryptocurrency grew in the latter part of 2020, we have seen 2021 get off to a quick start and we are well-positioned to continue our extraordinary growth through 2021 and beyond. To meet this increased demand, Voyager remains focused on providing investors an exceptional digital asset trading experience. We intend to keep improving our platform by enhancing user functionality and adding new features such as debit and credit cards, margin products, desktop application, and expanding our industry-leading interest program.
