Trustology was created to enable the adoption of cryptoassets on a global scale by building solutions to address the very real concerns that stand in the way of widespread blockchain adoption, now and in the future.
That’s why we built TrustVault — a fast, user-friendly and highly secure custodial wallet service designed to address the security and ownership shortcomings of existing custody solutions, hardware wallets and cold storage options today, whilst also providing the same level of speed, flexibility and access we’ve come to expect from traditional assets and account services.
With the support of ConSensys and Two Sigma Ventures, our team of highly-experienced blockchain, banking and software experts are hard at work defining the way that cryptoassets will be secured and managed in the digital era. Utilising well-designed processes and superior technology, we’re about delivering market solutions that are smart and of the highest-quality.

Wintermute was founded in July 2017 by Evgeny Gaevoy, Harro Mantel and Yoann Turpin, who combined 40 years of experience in high-frequency trading and development at Optiver, a leading global market maker in traditional financial markets.
Since then, Wintermute has grown to become one of the top liquidity providers of digital assets and we are on the mission to become #1. Our trading strategies are all market-neutral executed algorithmically 24/7. We focus on market making, high-frequency trading, algorithmic and quantitative trading in global crypto spot and derivative markets. We are not making any bets and do not take positions, we are providing much needed liquidity to the crypto eco-system thus contributing to the growth of decentralized finance.
Wintermute is a proprietary trading startup owned by the team and trusted by top tier VCs such as Lightspeed Venture Partners (read about the investment here and on The Block by Frank Chaparro), Blockchain.com Ventures, and FBG. We see ourselves as a technology, not a financial services one.
