Brian Brooks' experience with crypto firms and his leadership behind regulatory activities were noted by Voyager chair Philip Eytan as factors for the recruitment.

Bitfury CEO and former Acting Comptroller of the Currency Brian Brooks has joined the board of directors of cryptocurrency trading platform Voyager Digital.

In a Monday announcement, Voyager chair Philip Eytan said Brooks had joined the board as an “independent, non-executive director,” citing the former comptroller’s experience at crypto companies and his leadership behind regulatory initiatives in the United States during his time at the OCC. Brooks served as acting Comptroller of the Currency until January, was Coinbase’s chief legal officer from 2018 to 2020 and held the position of CEO at Binance.US for less than four months this year.

Brooks spearheaded the enactment of the fintech banking charter, which permitted crypto businesses to offer loan and payment products without the jurisdiction of state banking regulators, during his time at the OCC. Brooks was named CEO by Bitfury in October.

Voyager Digital, which was founded in 2018, now offers more than 60 digital assets for trade on its mobile app, as well as services like yield farming. The Dallas Mavericks basketball team and the National Women's Soccer League are among the sports groups with whom the corporation has lately formed relationships in the United States. The platform reported in October that it had obtained a $75 million investment from Alameda Research, a crypto quantitative trading firm and liquidity provider.
