“Voyager is headed by Stephen Ehrlich, the former CEO and founder of retail brokerage Lightspeed Financial who also previously ran the professional trading arm of online stock broker E*Trade. The startup’s other co-founders include Philip Eytan, an early Uber investor and Oscar Salazar, the former chief technology officer of the ride-hailing company.”Moreover, Stephen Ehrlich, the CEO of Voyager has commented, stating:
“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.”See more for yourself, here. We are seeing more of this nuwave exchanges come about. The reason for this is pretty clear though. In order to keep up with the competition, exchanges need to offer new concepts and new ideas. If they don’t then how can they expect to bring in new customers? It’s a simple concept, but a very important one. Look at exchanges like Robinhood. Is Voyager about to become their biggest competitor?
