Voyager Crypto Trading App: $25 Free Bitcoin Each For New Users (Now Live in 9 States)

My Money Blog has partnered with CardRatings for selected credit cards, and may receive a commission from card issuers. All opinions expressed are the author’s alone, and has not been provided nor approved by any of the companies mentioned. Thank you for your support.

Update: Voyager has launched trading in Arizona, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. You can now download their Invest Voyager iOS app and create a new account (with the same email address you used to sign up for this bonus!), which I believe should then trigger this $25 bonus if you live in an eligible state. They will continue rollout in additional states throughout 2019.

Original post:

Update: Referral program has ended, but it appears new users can still get $25. Voyager is a new trading app that intends to offer commission-free trading of least fifteen different cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). It hopes to differentiate its service by offering more access to different exchanges and thus better liquidity and pricing. Sounds like “smart order routing” when it comes to stocks. This means it will compete with the Robinhood app, which also offers free trades for both stocks and certain cryptocurrencies.

I have never owned a single Bitcoin. I’m checking into this company because it is offering $25 in free Bitcoin to anyone who signs up early, and other $25 for each person that you refer to sign up (up to 100 people). As far as I can tell, it seems like a legit start-up with real venture capital funding and real (rich) people backing it. If they want to give away free stuff to try out their service, I will accept. You can build up referrals now and claim the early bonus, but the app is not live yet so you can’t actually open an account yet to claim the credit. Right now, they just want your name and e-mail.

*All BTC credit is issued in pending status and requires the opening of a valid Voyager account to be claimed. Stay tuned for news about when Voyager launches in your area. Voyager’s promotional and referral programs are currently only available to US residents.

Voyager’s co-founders include some notable figures in the industry. The CEO is Stephen Ehrlich, the former CEO and founder of Lightspeed Financial (which was formed by the spinoff of the professional trader arm of E*Trade). Oscar Salazar, Uber co-founder and former Chief Technical Officer. Philip Eytan, an early Uber investor. Here is a Fortune magazine profile.

Here is my $25 BTC referral link, thanks if you use it. (Update: The referral program has ended, but it appears you can still use the link to get $25.) After you sign-up and confirm your e-mail, check your e-mail again and you should be given your own referral link to share with friends.

  1. Seriously? You don’t own BTC yet you’re hawking an app selling it. This blog continues to become nothing more than a cash grab.

    • I’m sorry you feel that way, but I must disagree. This is exactly what I’ve been writing about since the beginning. In 2007 and 2008, I wrote about a free Sharebuilder $50 bonuses that you could use to buy a partial share of Berkshire (BRK.A) and keep forever. I never owned a share of BRK before then, either, but it was free money for a few clicks. It’s now worth more than an entire share of BRK.B. I simply wanted to make it clear that I’m not putting all my eggs in BTC, and I wasn’t putting all my eggs in BRK either.

      If you just want $25, simply sell the bitcoin as soon as you get it and cash out.

  2. I signed up. I will leave the free $25 in BTC and check back in a few years. Maybe it will be worth more.

    • Yes, I’ve been debating that as well. See my previous comment about putting $50 in Berkshire Hathaway with an old Sharebuilder $50 bonus back in 2007. The total share price went from about $118,000 to $310,000, but the partial share is only worth about $130 now. Some might call it interesting and want to keep it riding another decade, others might get bored.

  3. Voyager is full of crap, that initial lead you gave them as a referral will never pay out, they’ll just claim the folks never did the second part of the requirement which is to install and use the app …Oldest farming leads trick in the book…the ole 2 part sign-up..
