Co-founder and Managing Partner of Nexo
Antoni Trenchev is the Co-founder and Managing Partner of leading digital assets institution Nexo. Prior to entering the blockchain space in 2013, he studied Finance Law at King’s College London and Humboldt University, Berlin, proceeding to work in the hedge fund industry. He then turned his attention to fintech, becoming Chief Innovations Officer at one of Europe’s major fintech groups. He was a member of the leadership team that launched the Nexo platform in April 2018, shortly after the company raised $52.5 million during a private token sale. Nexo has since processed more than $50 billion for over 2.5 million users across the globe and currently manages more than $10 billion in assets. Antoni served as a Member of Bulgaria’s Parliament between 2014 and 2017, advocating for progressive legislation to implement blockchain solutions for e-government services, most notably e-voting and storage of databases in a distributed ledger.
