Trevor Marshall grew up in NY, and has been living in the state his whole life. His path into technology was not a direct one. Prior to school, he was on the road to becoming a professional musician, studying at Juilliard. However, early on in his schooling, he found the same sort of joy he got from music in other areas, initially through economics and combinatorics – and he was hooked on math and computer science.
Early on in life, Trevor’s grandfather took him to the horse tracks, teaching him about the odds of a race. Fast forward several years post graduation from Columbia, he joined Morgan Stanley and got really excited about Bitcoin. He even went to his boss and asked if he could trade it… which he was promptly denied. However, that bold interaction solidified a match made in heaven for future working relationship.
In fact, when his now co-founder left, Trevor followed him to continue working together. Being really into Crypto, they both wanted to figure out how to introduce these new value streams to the masses. In order to do so, they needed to build a banking product that made sense for everyone… not just the wealthy.
