Increased US Exposure To eGold Via Publicly Traded Crypto-Assets Broker Invest Voyager

The US financial markets are global leaders in terms of capitalization, with the NYSE and NASDAQ being ranked 1st and 2nd worldwide, respectively. This is due to strong participation from US institutional investors, as well as 52% of the Americans who own stocks.

By contrast, only 15% of them own cryptocurrency albeit at a self reported value exceeding $111 billion USD. While interest in crypto assets is at an all time high, the complex regulatory environment in the United States makes it difficult for investors to join.

We are therefore excited to announce that eGold (EGLD) will be available to US investors through the licensed crypto-assets broker Voyager, a publicly traded company.

"The successful transition from traditional to decentralized finance will help our regulatory framework evolve in many positive ways. A publicly traded company built to simplify onboarding to the crypto space, is a powerful catalyst toward unlocking blockchain's multi-trillion-dollar potential. We're excited to work with Voyager towards compliant adoption at an internet-scale." said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond CEO.

Voyager provides crypto-currency brokerage services. The company offers access to assets and commission-free trading. Voyager serves retail and institutional investors in the United States and is currently looking to expand into Europe.

The digital assets services provider saw an explosive increase in assets under management, currently sitting at $265 million USD, a 4,000% increase from the same period last year and 3x since September.

“Voyager is excited to give U.S. Customers an easy way to invest in Elrond Network Investors can download the Voyager App, fund the account and begin trading within minutes. As Voyager’s growth accelerates, we will continue to expand our platform and offer our community the most exciting digital assets to invest in, with over 20 interest bearing assets on the Voyager platform.” said Steve Ehrlich, Co-founder and CEO of Voyager.

This is a very important achievement for the Elrond ecosystem as it is now able to reach even more US customers, thanks to the widespread availability of Voyager services, which complement existing US onboarding avenues such as Binance US, or MoonPay.

This means that almost everyone in the US now has access to eGold.
