Voyager, a cryptocurrency broker based by Uber and E * Trade veterans, will enter the Canadian TSX Venture Exchange through a reverse takeover of a public company. The deal amounted to $60 million.

For example, New York-based Voyager Digital Holdings successfully acquired UC Resources Ltd., a shell company for a large mineral exploration company, which ceased operations in 2015.

Trading in shares of the new company Voyager Digital (Canada) Ltd. will begin on February 11th. TSX Venture Exchange is a subsidiary of TMX Group, which also owns the Toronto Stock Exchange.

In the future, Voyager plans to acquire a number of startups that will help the company in building an integrated ecosystem.

It is worth adding that in the summer of 2018, the cryptocurrency broker raised $ 7 million in several private rounds of financing, the participants of which were not disclosed.

Recall that the launch of Voyager, which is essentially an analogue of Robinhood, became known in July last year. The project participants are co-founder of Uber Oscar Salazar, Uber investor Philip Eitan, as well as the head of the retail broker Lightspeed Financial Stephen Erlich. The latter is the CEO of a startup.

In honor of the release on TSX, each new user temporarily receives $ 25 in Bitcoin for registration.
