Voyager is a U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange platform. It is still quite a young project (it’s been online since last October only) founded by Stephen Ehrlich, Philip Eytan and Oscar Salazer (who is famous as an Uber co-founder) and Gaspard de Dreuzy.
It’s an exciting platform (more on that later) but it’s still somewhat limited as it’s available only in a handful of states within the US (Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Montana, Missouri, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Illinois, California, and Arizona) but it’s pursuing approval in all 50 states as well as overseas.
The platform includes a mobile app, but it’s available only for Apple mobile phones. That obviously leaves the Android market out of the equation.
We are excited to share that XRP is a supported asset!! Buying and selling crypto assets with USD has never been as easy as it is now. Download the Voyager app in the iOS app store and start commission free trading today. https://t.co/YpXPOJ7yNq #investvoyager #xrp $xrp @Ripple

Another interesting feature in Voyager is that it allows you to buy cryptocurrencies using your own fiat money, by linking your card or bank account into your Voyager account which is not that common.
Most cryptocurrency exchanges in the web are crypto-to-crypto, which means that there’s not much point in joining them unless you already own some digital assets, but you can’t buy them with your local currency except for a handful of platforms.
So if you’re interested in getting a piece of the XRP action, Voyager could be precisely what you were waiting for. It’s commission-free as long as you use USD to pay for your tokens. And XRP is available at Voyager since last Wednesday.
XRP is the cryptocurrency native to Ripple’s blockchain technology. It’s not meant to be a retail currency (like Bitcoin or Litecoin, etc.) but to be a means of exchange that can eliminate global transactions between banks, remittances services, and other traditional financial institutions. As such, it’s unique in the crypto verse because it’s backed up by a private company (Ripple).
Also because that company is trying to build up the coin’s value through real-life use cases and authentic demand instead of the speculative pressure that still drives the cryptocurrency market, and it’s succeeding if you take into account that XRP was the most profitable coin during 2017 (the one year in which almost every token was profitable) and it’s been growing in terms of market capitalization.
Starting to trade in XRP is quite easy if you choose Voyager. All you need to do is to download the app (Apple, only for now). Then you register, open your trader’s account and fund it. You can start with as few as USD 10.
As we write this, XRP is trading at $0.3153, and it’s ranked third by market capitalization. 41,365,634,610 XRP tokens are in currently in circulation with a billion more each month, according to the terms of Ripple’s monthly escrow contract (the company still owns most of the tokens).
So if you’re in the iPhone camp and are interested in joining the cryptosphere as an investor (not only in XRP, Voyager supports several other assets), it’s probably never been easier or cheaper. Just get the app and start doing your thing.
