Canadian crypto asset broker Voyager Digital Ltd has started trading its shares on the Toronto Ventures Exchange (TSX.V). The company listed through a reverse takeover of mineral exploration company UC Resources. Voyager argues that going public will help to improve transparency in the crypto market while promoting adoption by allowing traditional investors to tap into digital assets through the public equity market.

Listing Will Boost Transparency and Crypto Adoption

Shares of Voyager will trade under the ticker symbol VYGR.V. While reverse takeovers are an increasingly popular business strategy for many emerging companies, the idea of a young company going public may at first glance seem out of the norm, Stephen Ehrlich, chief executive officer of Voyager, explained in a blog post.

For us, the choice made perfect sense. It offered Voyager the chance to bring transparency to our business, maturity to the crypto market and to provide the world with an opportunity to invest in a public crypto trading company through the traditional market.

With a reverse takeover, private companies typically avoid the rigor of regulatory oversight and costs associated with going public through an initial public offering, which in a sense makes them attractive to startups keen on getting around bureaucratic red tape.

Voyager has recently announced the finalization of its tie-up with UC Resources, a publicly quoted company on the NEX Exchange, Canadas junior market for emerging companies. By virtue of the merger, which in effect is a takeover of UC Resources majority shareholding, Voyager has gone public. The deal allows the merged entity to transition to the TSX Ventures Exchange as a Tier 2 company.

Solid Capital Base to Drive Company Growth

In his blog post, Ehrlich elaborated that the stock market listing legally bounds the broker to disclose both quarterly and annual reports. Voyager will also be required to publicly reveal details about any corporate deals like mergers, acquisitions, insider trading, securities transactions by company employees and ownership changes.

Were confident that the level of transparency a public company is held to will benefit not only our shareholders and customers but also the crypto market as a whole, said Ehrlich. Our hope is that we can encourage more people to participate in the crypto market through a regulated vehicle without the fear and doubt that has shrouded the industry previously.
