“While we believe our recent business metrics reflect the growing interest in the cryptocurrency ecosystem and long-term benefits of our business model, the unprecedented external events over the past week, including decisions made by competitive products, have brought significant upside to our metrics,” said Steve Ehrlich, Co-founder and CEO of Voyager. “While we don’t expect a repeat of the unprecedented external events of the past few weeks that have served as a catalyst for the recent growth, we anticipate continued meaningful growth in our business, including from the pipeline of approximately 80,000 customers who have signed up and that we are presently onboarding. We remain focused on executing our long-term business plan and expect Voyager will continue to grow the business in a more traditional pattern throughout the balance of 2021. To support this growth, we anticipate increased expenditures in order to materially increase our employee headcount during this period, while also increasing our technology architecture stack in the near-term to accommodate significantly more users.”
