Voyager Digital, a cryptocurrency platform, has received official licensing approval from the French regulatory bodies Autorité des marchés financiers and Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution to facilitate a trading platform of 60 digital assets in the French and European Union markets through its subsidiary LGO Europe SAS.
Voyager, a Canadian-listed company based in the United States with the ticker symbol VYGR.V, is reportedly the first organization outside of Europe to be designated with a “Fit and Proper” approval status of this type.
Voyager signed an agreement with crypto payments firm Coinify in early August for an estimated $85 million, with the goal of expanding its financial offering to global cross-border payments.
Throughout the announcement, the company has been working on its mobile trading application, which is set to launch in a number of European countries in the latter half of the first quarter of 2022. Lewis Bateman, Voyager’s chief international officer, stated:
“We have a long waiting list of European customers who are eagerly awaiting the release of our app.” The crypto economy is global, and we are excited about the prospect of serving these customers and providing Voyager quality access to a larger customer segment.”
