He further added that the investment opportunities offered by Voyager attracted him to the project.“When my business partner Grant Haas introduced me to Voyager Digital and the cryptocurrency space, I quickly saw that Voyager brings financial services to the masses.”
Voyager offers investment opportunities for Crypto assets
Voyager is a publicly-traded crypto-asset broker and enables clients to trade and invest crypto assets. Besides, the firm aims to offer an efficient and cheaper alternative for trading crypto-assets.
Voyager offers investment opportunities in many crypto-assets and currently offers 8.5% APR on USDC. Voyager also offers flexible investment packages for investors in the United States.
CEO of Voyager Steve Ehrlich believes that Tracy’s addition is a great one for the crypto-assets brokerage platform. He also believes that McGrady’s smart investments and basketball success experience would add credibility to the platform.
“Tracy’s leadership on the court has transitioned to his financial advisory program with Grant Haas to help young athletes manage their new-found wealth.”
This partnership is a great one for Voyager Digital and would improve its visibility in the United States, where Tracy Mcgrady remains a major sporting personality.
Blockchain and cryptocurrencies have continued to attract major personalities in America. Legendary Hip Hop music star Akon is building a smart city in Senegal that would incorporate a digital token for transactions.
