Voyager Digital Announces the Voyager Debit Mastercard®
The Voyager Debit Mastercard is the first crypto-based debit card that pays up to 9% annual rewards, and even more for Voyager Loyalty Program members
Voyager Digital Ltd. ("Voyager" or the "Company") (TSX: VOYG; OTCQX: VYGVF; FRA: UCD2), one of the fastest-growing, publicly traded cryptocurrency platforms in the United States, today announced the launch of the Voyager Debit Mastercard, the first crypto-based debit card that pays up to 9% annual rewards to Voyager customers, as well as additional rewards for Voyager Loyalty Program members.
"With the Voyager Debit Mastercard, we continue to lead the future of finance by giving Voyager customers the benefit of earning rewards while instantly being able to spend their crypto on everyday purchases with the convenience of a debit card,” said Steve Ehrlich, CEO and co-founder of Voyager. “By basing our debit card on the USD Coin (USDC), a stable coin priced 1-to-1 to the US dollar, we are offering customers a predictable and rewarding way to hold and easily convert crypto for payments, while offering Voyager Loyalty Program members additional rewards.”
The Voyager Mastercard enables cardholders to instantly spend their crypto assets, seamlessly and automatically converting USDC to fiat currency in order to transact on the Mastercard network. Additional features include:
- no annual fees and no lock up of assets to earn rewards.
- annual rewards of up to 9% on all USDC holdings of $100 or more, paid monthly—this means USDC holders receive crypto back (additional USDC) in their Voyager accounts, based on their average monthly balance.
- seamless integration of debit card balances and transactions within the Voyager app.
- a personal routing and account number for direct deposit and bill pay, for each card.
- anytime access to assets via ATMs.
- additional rewards totaling up to 10.5% annually on USDC for Voyager Loyalty Program members, depending on the tier, as well as additional crypto back on debit card purchases.
Starting today, consumers can pre-register for the Voyager Debit Mastercard through www.investvoyager.com/debitcard.
Launch of the Voyager Debit Mastercard follows the announcement on November 10, 2021 that the company surpassed 1 million funded accounts, increasing funded accounts by 2,225% in just over ten months. In addition, Voyager announced registered users at 2.7 million, up from 1 million announced on April 6, 2021. This strong momentum demonstrates that consumers in the US are drawn to Voyager’s expanding crypto finance platform and that the company is the well positioned for continued growth.
