Adding exceptionally talented and experienced advisors and investors on board is one of the best ways to grow and develop our platform.
In this issue of “Meet Credefi’s Advisors”, we will talk about David Marshall and Matthew Land — the founders of Marshland Capital, who are one of Credefi’s top advisors and also one of Credefi’s leading investors.
David began his career in the Credit Insurance sector with Euler Trade Indemnity Plc, before transitioning into the Corporate FX industry with roles at Travelex Plc and Western Union Global. He then moved into the Fund Management space when he started the International Payments Division and later started the Emerging Markets Division at Celestial Private Equity Fund. During this period, David was active in many new tech business investments that create a passion and interest in the technology sector. He later took the role of Commercial Director for LinuxIT Europe providing consultancy and technology services to the likes of Bank of England, ABN Amro and BNP Paribas.
He bought his first Bitcoin in 2013 which began his new journey in the Blockchain Industry. After actively investing and advising projects personally he formed Marshland Capital in 2017 alongside Matthew Land, to foster a full-stack accelerator and private equity capital deployment enterprise where they currently help shape, support and guide the visions of many top tier projects that have the potential of becoming future leading lights of the Digital Assets Industry.
Matthew Land has a background in Computer science working as a Software Quality Assurance Engineer Lead for over five years at Providersoft, which was acquired by Constellation Software, a publicly traded company listed on the S&P/TSX 60, under his leadership. Matthew is a blockchain domain expert working in the digital technologies space since 2013.
Through his brand at Oh Hey Matty, Matt created the Oh Hey Matty spreadsheet in 2017, an early start-up, data-driven, metric analysis system that is credited by top industry experts as a foundational pillar to the expansion of early-stage capital formation in the digital space and a critical contribution to the Ethereum blockchain. In 2017 Matthew joined Marshland Capital alongside David Marshall, to foster a full-stack accelerator and capital deployment arm where he currently continues to help shape and guide the vision and future of digital assets.

Credefi is a first mover in the DeFi space connecting crypto lenders and SME borrowers from the real economy. Credefi’s platform enables decentralized and secured lending to portfolios of business projects or individual companies, protecting lenders while providing them fixed APY.
The protocol resolves the key challenges that DeFi and TradFi are facing today: DeFi’s inconsistent, fragile yields that evaporate in bear markets and speculative borrowers that are fickle and cannot satisfy DeFi lending supply; as well as the difficulty for SMEs to get TradFi funding at normal interest rates.
