Ethos Token Rebrand Announcement - Introducing the Voyager Token (VGX)

Ethos Token Rebrand Announcement

Introducing the Voyager Token (VGX)


It’s official, the Ethos Token (ETHOS/BQX) will be re-branding to the Voyager Token (VGX)!

In November, we unveil the broker token, a dynamic utility token to power our commission-free crypto trading and broker platform, Voyager. Here is our letter to the community of how we're building the future of finance together...


Today we are happy and excited to announce that the Ethos Token (ETHOS) will be rebranding to the Voyager Token (VGX). This has been a long time coming and is a significant step towards integrating the Voyager and Ethos products and communities. We believe that this rebrand will give the community and joint companies an amazing opportunity to build a Regulated Crypto Broker that the crypto market deserves.

When the Ethos and Voyager teams first met, both sides realized that there was a deeply shared vision and mission. Ethos was founded on the idea of building a financial ecosystem that is open, safe and fair for everyone. Voyager is making crypto markets more accessible and secure for consumers, and their product was very much in line with the original vision of Ethos. Both sides had technology and expertise that complemented one another and we knew that by teaming up, we would have the resources and reach to challenge the incumbents in the space. 

Since the announcement of the merger, Ethos has been able to exponentially accelerate Voyager’s growth and expansion, both by bolstering customer acquisition and by opening up additional product features such as crypto deposits and withdrawals. This rapid product build out shows just a sliver of the potential of our collaboration. Ethos has come a long way and everything that has been built is positioned perfectly to be utilized and massively accelerate a bold, global product roadmap. With the closing of the deal and regulatory approval, we’re ready to take the next step in this journey.

Our community is important to us at Ethos and we wanted to reward Ethos token holders who have been supportive for a long time by bringing them additional utility outside of what exists within the Universal Wallet. As part of this, it made a lot of sense for ETHOS to become the native token for Voyager and to be aptly named the Voyager Token (VGX).  

All Ethos tokens you hold will be automatically switched to Voyager Tokens (VGX) on all platforms which support the rebrand. In order to best take advantage of the token name and ticker symbol change, we recommend that you hold your tokens either on the Ethos Universal Wallet or on the Voyager app, as both platforms will be natively supporting the change. Tokens will be automatically re-named 1-1 with no smart contract or supply changes necessary, as this is not an official token swap.  We’ll be working with all services which support the Ethos Token to support the rebrand, stay tuned for more!

In addition to the existing utility of the Ethos token that powers the Universal Wallet, new functionality will be added to enable Live Trading of self-custodied funds along with discounts and cashback rewards to traders who use the Voyager app and brokerage services. We will also be releasing an updated whitepaper (version 3.0.0) when the rebrand has been fully executed. Stay tuned for that as we lay out our exciting vision for the future!

We appreciate the support of the Ethos Fam as we move into the next chapter with Voyager!

Sincerely,

Shingo Lavine, Ethos Founder and CEO

Ethos Token Rebrand to Voyager Token (VGX) FAQ

Ethos Token Rebrand to Voyager Token (VGX) FAQ


We've announced that we'll be re-branding the Ethos Token to the Voyager Token.

Here is an FAQ to answer your most burning questions!


Why did the team decide to rebrand to Voyager?

We felt that the message was too confusing for a native broker token to be called anything other than the name of the platform it was meant for. We’ve seen other platforms and exchanges have great success with native tokens in the crypto space and we felt that Voyager was the right platform to focus on given the enthusiasm the community had around the trading platform. 

What will happen to my ETHOS tokens?

Nothing except you are now the proud owner of Voyager Tokens! These tokens will continue to maintain their existing functionality within the Ethos Universal Wallet and other applications. We recommend that you hold your tokens on either the Ethos Universal Wallet or Voyager Trading Application as both platforms will be supporting the rebrand effort.

What will happen to other places the token is listed?

Other platforms will not have to change anything except the branding and ticker of the token. We are actively working with the 100+ places that the token is currently listed to have each of them support the rebrand effort.

What is the new name and ticker?

Voyager Token (VGX). 

Where can I purchase the token?  Does it have other symbols?

The token trades under the symbol VGX.  There may be legacy markets where the token may appear as BQX and/or ETHOS. The most popular places to trade are the Voyager App or Binance.

What is the token’s functionality in Voyager?

The token will let you reduce network fees, collect cashback and earn interest. 

What fees are reduced?

We anticipate a wide variety of fees can be reduced when paid in tokens such as withdrawal fees, live trading fees and future product fees that Voyager may develop. 

How do I earn cashback?

When you hold a certain number of tokens you will get money back when you trade. To get a better idea of how it will work read here: (https://www.ethos.io/ethos-introduces-cashback-rewards-for-token-holders-trading-with-voyager)

How can I earn interest?

Voyager will soon release an interest bearing feature for customers. The roll-out will start with a baseline of variable interest that fluctuates with crypto market rates. Soon after, token holders will be given the opportunity to get enhanced interest rates based on the number of tokens held.

When will utility details be released?

As Voyager releases these features, more information will be announced over time.

What about trading from self-custody?

Voyager also plans to release trading direction from individuals wallets (Universal Vaults) called Live Trading. For more details on how this would work, read here: (https://www.ethos.io/ethos-voyager-livestream-recording-summary)

Bitcoin Cash BCH Now Supported on Ethos Universal Wallet

Bitcoin Cash BCH Now Supported on Ethos Universal Wallet


Hello, Bitcoin Cash! Easily and securely store, swap, track, send and receive your Bitcoin Cash BCH on the Ethos Universal Wallet.

Bitcoin Cash BCH – the #1 Most Adopted Bitcoin Fork

Over the last few years, there have been a number of hard forks on Bitcoin but none have gained the same level of traction as Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash is seen by some as having the potential to address the scalability concerns associated with Bitcoin, with the intention to spur mass adoption through merchants and payments around the World. 

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is peer-to-peer electronic cash for the internet. Bitcoin Cash formed from a hard fork which took effect on August 1 of 2017, led by developers who wanted to increase the block size, which in theory allows it to process more transactions per second. 

Similar to Bitcoin and other blockchains, BCH is fully decentralized with no central bank and requires no trusted third parties to operate. At present, it’s accepted by around 1,000 retailers as a means of payment, and is a part of the thriving and growing crypto economy.

Bitcoin Cash on the Universal Wallet

So it’s with a lot of excitement, and a ton of hard work from our developers and engineers, that Ethos is welcoming the Bitcoin Cash community into ours, as we’ve now listed and support Bitcoin Cash BCH on our Ethos Universal Wallet. Users can now store, track, send and receive Bitcoin Cash on the Universal Wallet.

Bitcoin Cash Swaps with ShapeShift

Want to swap tokens for Bitcoin Cash directly in your wallet? Easy. Simply, use ShapeShift to swap a number of tokens for Bitcoin Cash or vice versa, while always maintaining self-custody of your assets in the Wallet.

As we move forward on the path of crypto asset adoption, we look forward to bringing communities together through the Universal Wallet, providing them with a safe and secure place to store, buy, swap, send, and receive their assets.

Big Thanks to our Community!

With every major update, we advance forward toward the new economy. We appreciate your insights and input as a community, as it helps inform our direction and future.

Cardano ADA Now Supported on Ethos Universal Wallet

Cardano ADA Now Supported on Ethos Universal Wallet


We’ve listed Cardano ADA!

The token powering the first open-source blockchain project to be developed from a scientific philosophy. Easily and securely store, track, send and receive your Cardano ADA on the Ethos Universal Wallet.


Since launching in September of 2017, Cardano’s Token, ADA, has become one of the most popular crypto assets on the market, garnering wide-spread interest from the crypto community. Cardano is seen as a potential real-solution to building a scalable and decentralized blockchain platform.

The team behind Cardano’s development is known for having an academic background and taking a scientific approach to development. Their website states that Cardano is,“The first blockchain project to be developed from a scientific philosophy, and the only one to be designed and built by a global team of leading academics and engineers.”

Cardano is a fully open source crypto project that, through a research-first driven approach, is developing a smart contract platform which aims to deliver more advanced features than any existing blockchain protocol. Cardano wants to achieve a balance between the needs of users with those of regulators, and in doing so combine privacy with regulation.

Cardano has a major update on the near-horizon, as they prepare to release their Shelley testnet to a core group of developers, which will be the groundwork for releasing their protocol to public developers, initiating their blockchain revolution of sorts.

With the aim to deliver unique financial and blockchain-based services to people around the world, they plan to promote financial inclusion by providing access to fair financial services for people around the world.

Here are three organizations, separate in ownership and leadership, that are contributing to the development of Cardano ecosystem:

The Cardano Foundation – A non-profit and independent body based in Switzerland with core responsibilities to help oversee and supervise the development of Cardano and its ecosystem.

Input Output HK (IOHK) – IOHK, founded in 2015 by Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood, IOHK is a technology company committed to using peer-to-peer innovations to provide financial services to the billions of people who currently don’t have them. They are an engineering company that builds cryptocurrencies and blockchains for academic institutions, government entities and corporations.

EMURGOEMURGO drives the adoption of Cardano and adds value to ADA holders by building, investing in, and advising projects or organizations that adopt Cardano’s decentralized blockchain ecosystem.

Cardano ADA – the #1 Most Request Coin for Universal Wallet

In conducting a variety of community polls and surveys, Cardano emerged the #1 winner of most-requested token for us to list time and time again. Cardano being both a relatively new and yet established project, we saw there was a need for more quality wallet solutions for the token, especially on mobile.

So it’s with a lot of excitement, and a ton of hard work from our developers and engineers, that Ethos is welcoming the Cardano community into ours, as we’ve now listed and support Cardano ADA on our Ethos Universal Wallet.

As we all look ahead towards a more equal and fair society being built before our eyes, we share in the mission to bring fair and empowering financial services to users across the World. We are thrilled to support ADA on our wallet, support the mission, and help pave the road to mass adoption.

As we move forward on the path of crypto asset adoption, we look forward to bringing communities together through the Universal Wallet, providing them with a safe and secure place to store, send, and receive their assets.

Big Thanks to our Community!

With every major update, we advance forward toward the new economy. We appreciate your insights and input as a community, as it helps inform our direction and future.

Universal Wallet Update 1.9 Including Cardano ADA is Now Live

Universal Wallet Update 1.9 Now Live

Hello, Cardano ADA!


Download or update the Ethos Universal Wallet to the latest Version v1.9, to safely and simple store, track, send & receive Cardano ADA. Available on both iOS & Google play. Learn more about the latest update...

Cardano Now Supported on the Universal Wallet!

We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the Cardano Token and community to Ethos. In the last several months, we polled and surveyed our community on what token they most wanted to see next in the Universal Wallet – and Cardano won with resounding support on multiple occasions.

You voted, and we listened, making Cardano a top priority for us.  

But it was a perfect fit because at Ethos we value Cardano’s commitment to a scientific approach to blockchain, and wanted to contribute to the movement by providing a user-friendly wallet solution for the Cardano community.

Cardano can be added to users SmartWallets – where they can track the coin, view the live chart, as well as rate the token and leave comments. You can also transfer Cardano directly to your wallet and store it there for safekeeping, secured with your pin and/or biometric. If you need to send or receive Cardano ADA, you can do it in a snap by scanning a QR code address.

Wondering, What is Cardano?

Cardano is a decentralized public blockchain and cryptocurrency project and is fully open source. Cardano is developing a smart contract platform which seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed. It is the first blockchain platform to evolve out of a scientific philosophy and a research-first driven approach. The development team consists of a large global collective of expert engineers and researchers

A big shoutout to our lead engineer, Derek Barrera, who has been hard at work integrating Cardano into both Ethos Bedrock and the Universal Wallet.

Other New Additions in Update 1.9

Lock Screen Enhancements

With Update v1.9, we have implemented feedback from our users around the lock screen. Now, users will find that when they open their “open-apps” navigation on their device, the Universal Wallet screen will blur to provide enhanced privacy to users.

Additionally, prior to update 1.9, when a user took this action and returned to the Wallet they were prompted to unlock the Universal Wallet. With this update the user is able to return from viewing their open apps directly to their Universal Wallet with it staying unlocked and accessible.

ERC20 Tokens Added to the Wallet

With our latest update, we welcome 3 new ERC20 tokens into the Universal Wallet. Supported in both the SmartWallet and Watchfolio, users will be able to receive, send, store and learn about these tokens and exciting projects.

New ERC20 Tokens

Pantos: PAN – Pantos aims to bring influential blockchain projects closer together, improve communication between developers, researchers and users, and set innovative standards for decentralised cross-chain token transfers.

Parachute: PAR – A platform to send cryptocurrency to anyone, instantly. Creator of ParJar, the coolest tip bot on Telegram, which we actively use in Ethos to tip our community for quality contributions.

Omnitude: ECOM – Omnitude is a pioneering hybrid blockchain business. We are focused on bringing the benefits of this new disruptive technology to future facing enterprises that recognise its transformative role in bringing real‑world commercial advantage.

All tokens listed are currently live and fully-transactable!

“Trade with Voyager” Added to Left Side Navigation for iOS Users

If you’re on iPhone and in the U.S. (Android & Global coming soon..) then we’ve added a button to directly link you to the Voyager App. Once you install the app and fund your account, users can trade 20+ crypto assets direct with USD, using our SmartOrder Router & Crypto broker solution, which gives you direct near-instant order access to the liquidity of the global crypto market.

Voyager & Ethos have united forces as one organization – delivering complete end-to-end crypto and financial services to the people! Learn more about Voyager: https://www.investvoyager.com/

Quick Link to Wallet Settings

We also made customizing your SmartWallet easier. We’ve added a settings icon to the upper left corner of the SmartWallet, giving you a simple and intuitive way of accessing wallet settings directly within the wallet you are viewing.

In the settings, you can now more easily rename a wallet, hide individual coins in a wallet or hide the wallet altogether. Users can also manage their security settings with more ease, as we give you the ability to unlock your wallet with your password or pin, or your pin and biometric for an added layer of security.

Ledger Providing Foundation for Voyager Liquidity Network Powered by Bedrock

Ledger Providing Foundation for Voyager Liquidity Network Powered by Bedrock


The inside scoop on our breaking news about a business relationship with Ledger, one of the most successful leaders in crypto hardware solutions, to work together to provide an extremely secure custody solution for Voyager's brokerage service, powered by Ethos Bedrock

We’ve just announced a major new business relationship with Ledger, one of the most successful leaders in crypto hardware solutions. Under this relationship, the companies will work together to provide an extremely secure source for customer’s crypto assets stored with Voyager’s brokerage service.

Ethos and Voyager believe that there will be customers that want both a hosted custody solution – meaning funds are held by the company on the customer’s behalf – and a self-custody solution – meaning only the customer holds the keys for the funds and can initiate transactions.

We believe that both needs are important to properly fulfill. This also gives customers the ability to seamlessly access their funds at all times. Customers with funds held in custody can have peace of mind knowing that one of the most secure and reputable brands in the crypto space’s hardware security technology is being used to secure their funds on Voyager.

Very few organizations in the crypto space are attempting to build a comprehensive liquidity network spanning multiple global exchanges like Voyager. Improving the execution experience in the crypto space is a difficult task given how fragmented and disjointed individual crypto exchanges are from one another.

The Voyager router solves this problem by finding best execution by searching all available global exchanges when orders come in.  This router, combined with the Ledger Vault and Ethos Bedrock technology, Voyager has secured all the technical components in order to power end-to-end crypto services for this global liquidity network.

Work is already underway on the first step, which is to integrate Bedrock and Ledger Vault together.  The first application will be to make it easy for customers to safely and securely deposit crypto assets into their Voyager brokerage account for trading.  This can be from their Ethos Universal Wallet, existing ledger hardware such as the Nano S, or any other crypto currency wallet that can transfer crypto assets.  Each customer will receive a dedicated address that will let them deposit funds right into the super-secure ledger hardware vault.

If Ethos Bedrock is building the bridges and Voyager is routing the traffic over those bridges, Ledger is the bridge foundation, providing security and peace of mind to all of the commuters (funds) that are crossing. With funds constantly being routed between different venues and liquidity providers, Ledger provides unparalleled security and flexibility to enable Voyager’s Hardware Secured Blockchain Treasury system. This solution is cross-chain, cross-platform and cross-exchanges and is immensely secure, building on years of Ledgers experience and technology. This solution will be optimized to power both Voyager’s retail trading business and institutional crypto offerings.

Bedrock will be providing the piping that connects all of these distributed systems together by forwarding funds, automating treasury management, tracking customer deposits and eventually enabling seamless connectivity between user’s Ledger-secured custody funds and their personal key secured self-custody funds. Bedrock has robust technology for these services that was battle-tested in the Ethos Universal Wallet, including address tracking, system alerts and paging, and keeping the treasury management team up to date on customer balances and obligations.

Much of the magic behind Voyager’s fiat gateway is treasury management. Whenever a customer places an order, Voyager’s Smart Order Router finds the best way to execute the order across multiple exchanges taking into account price, liquidity and fees. This comes with the expectation that customer funds are always held securely while orders are being executed which is why it is important that the company invests in security to protect against potential vulnerabilities on exchanges  This preemptive security mindset is core to the philosophy of how the company will build trust with consumers as the liquidity network and fiat gateway grow.

Voyager’s Hardware Secured Blockchain Treasury System is the first of its kind built upon the technology of Bedrock and Ledger Vault. This approach will give the company a unique competitive edge which will be felt by consumers through a seamless crypto trading experience.

If you have more questions, feel free to join us in telegram at t.me/ethos_io or t.me/investvoyager to discuss the ledger partnership in more detail.

Until Next Time,

Bomb Token is Live & the Fuse is Lit on Ethos Universal Wallet

Bomb Token is Live & the Fuse is Lit on Ethos Universal Wallet


Ethos is proud to support BOMB token as their Official Wallet. BOMB has laid the groundwork for a social experiment and financial case study to measure the feasibility of a deflationary currency.

First hitting the blockchain in 2019, BOMB is blasting a path of its own. BOMB is a social experiment and financial case study to measure the feasibility of a deflationary currency.

How does it work? The rules are simple.

  1. There were originally 1,000,000 BOMB in existence
  2. Each time a BOMB is transferred, 1% of the transaction is destroyed
  3. There will never be newly minted BOMB tokens.

The intention is not for the token to be used as a transactional currency, but rather a consistent and decentralized store of value. Through a system of immutable smart contracts and continuous hyperdeflation, BOMB is the world’s first self-destructing currency.

In a modern economy plagued by the shadow of hyper-inflation, it’s experiments like these which give us the opportunity to discover value in assets which inherently become rarer overtime. Thus, giving us insight to the economic mechanics of deflation, growth and social virality in a global market.

Despite over $13,000,000,000 in public capital allocated to the decentralized world in the first half of 2018 alone, over 1000 projects are now dead. While there are many reasons for this decline, we believe the Token Velocity Problem to sit at the forefront. In short, Token Velocity is the speed at which tokens circulate their native platforms and ecosystems. If this velocity is too high and speculation is held constant, assets will struggle to conserve long-term appreciation.

BOMB has a vision of becoming the deflationary currency of the decentralized world. Will BOMB Token’s mission change the way projects issue tokens in the future? We will see. Game on.

Ethos Universal Wallet is the Official Wallet of Bomb Token

A big thank you to the Bomb Token Team and community for choosing Ethos as their Official Wallet of Choice. Bomb Tokens can now be easily stored, track, sent and received, while ensuring that with each transaction made through the Universal Wallet, the deflationary algorithm stays in tact, reducing supply overtime.

Welcome to the Bomb Token Community!

As we move forward on the path of crypto asset adoption, we look forward to bringing communities together through the Universal Wallet, providing them with a safe and secure place to store, send and receive their assets.

To start storing, sending and receiving your Bomb, get the wallet and start transacting today!

In this article, we highlight the major features, 25+ new ERC20 tokens and changes contained in this update, as well as give you an exciting sneak peek on what’s next.

Improved Navigation Menu & User Flow

With Update v1.8, we have revamped the left side navigation menu to make it easier for users to buy, swap or send crypto. This brings a more intuitive experience to access some of our most popular features in less steps, and with greater ease.

25+ New ERC20 Tokens Added to the Wallet

In addition to the new tokens that are now supported in the Universal Wallet, we have added WatchFolio support for Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV), so you can track and add it to your portfolio.

We have also updated Substratum to support the token swap. The dev team is currently working on a permanent solution to support token swaps and contract updates seamlessly in the future, as we always build technology with replicable use cases when possible.

Support for Emerging Tokens

Additionally, 1.8 brings with it the ability for the Universal Wallet to support emerging tokens. We categorize emerging tokens as those which are new to crypto and in the process of building their infrastructure.

Emerging tokens are also tokens which are not actively listed on larger and/or more popular exchanges or market data aggregators, such as CryptoCompare or CoinMarketCap. This opens the possibility for Ethos to support assets that we previously could not, expanding our Crypto Universe.

What’s Next on the Horizon?

In Update 1.9, Cardano ADA will be officially live in the Universal Wallet. We are excited to be one of the first mobile wallet solutions to support Cardano, as we are very excited about the future of this project and to support the Cardano community.
