Meet the Team: Justin Trollip
Chief Herder, Pangolin
Gold Coast, Australia
What do you do at Pangolin?
Depends on the day really. Bit of everything. Making sure that everything we do is legal and regulatory compliant, looking after the finances, managing business relationships and closing deals, helping define product strategy and new features, testing, human resources.
What’s one of your favorite songs right now?
Bob Dylan — Moonshiner
What did you do before working in crypto?
Slave to the man. Some TradFi, some Solution Architecture, a bit of entrepreneurship. A lot of howling at the moon.
What originally got you into crypto? What were some of your first investments?
I tend to lean into anarchist political theory so crypto was just a natural extension of my world views. Bitcoin was my first purchase.
What types of projects most excite you in the space (outside of Pangolin, of course)?
I love L1s. A little obsessed with sharding and layer-based scaling lately. Anything with Zero-Knowledge in it I love hearing about.
If you could go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice from the day you started investing in crypto, what would it be?
Simplify things. Complexity often obscures and correlates to a higher risk profile.
What led to you working at Pangolin?
Loved the brand, loved the ethos and Pangolin needed someone to show it a bit of love when I took over.
Which part of our 2022 Roadmap are you most excited for? And why?
Being a multichain DEX that obscures the underlying blockchain. I think it’s the first step to a DEX being truly able to compete with CEXs.
