Voyager, a crypto asset broker, and crypto trading app, today announced it has acquired Ethos.io, a blockchain platform that seeks to make the cryptocurrency market accessible to everyone. Combining Voyager’s crypto trading technology with Ethos’ ecosystem of self-custody for storing, sending, and receiving assets, the two companies aim to create an all-in-one crypto solution.
The two companies began their partnership in the fall of 2018, with the intention to bring crypto-to-fiat best execution trading and purchases to Ethos wallet users. Both teams agreed that to ignite the mission further and faster it was in their best interest, and the best interest of token holders and shareholders, to bring the companies together.
The Ethos brand will continue to grow independently, and development of the Ethos Universal Wallet and ecosystem will continue with regular updates, feature enhancements, and new coin integrations.
The Ethos token will be used to provide users with access to utility and functionality within the shared-platform. Starting with Ethos Status in the Universal Wallet and joint cashback rewards, the new organization will continue to release enhanced functionality for the Ethos token moving forward.
Shingo Lavine, head of Ethos, will now be assuming the role of Chief Innovation Officer at Voyager and joining its Board.
