We're on a mission to democratize consumer access to cryptocurrency.


Santa Monica, CA

After graduating from Columbia with 12 student loans, Brendon McQueen moved to LA and founded a leading student loan payback employee benefit company which focuses on helping millennials prosper. A few years later, he started exploring cryptocurrency and quickly realized its inherent complexity and the need to simplify the consumer experience. Today, Brendon and the Cred team are focused on democratizing consumer access to crypto to help more people prosper and realize their financial goals. 

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.

-Albert Einstein

Cryptocurrency today is rife with complexity, confusion and fear, making access to it daunting for regular consumers. We believe that simplifying the complex is what makes Cred special.


We're a team of engineers, product people, growth hackers and sales gurus focused on a singular goal: to make a great, simple, beautiful product that brings value to a mass audience.


In an age of housing bubbles, credit card debt and student loans, we aim to help people prosper and grow. It's also way easier to go to work knowing you're helping normal people realize new opportunities.

Cred is wholly-owned sub-brand of Shuttle Finance, Inc. Cryptocurrency trading is offered through an account with Cred. Cred is not a member of FINRA or SIPC. Cryptocurrencies are not stocks and your cryptocurrency investments are not protected by either FDIC or SIPC insurance.

Getting “early access” to Cred is defined as signing up with a valid email address for a spot in Cred’s waitlist queue. Early access to the waitlist for Cred should in no way be construed as confirmation that an account with Cred or Shuttle Finance has been opened or will even be approved for opening. 

Cryptocurrency is a digital representation of value that functions as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, or a store of value, but it does not have legal tender status. Cryptocurrencies are sometimes exchanged for U.S. dollars or other currencies around the world, but they are not currently backed nor supported by any government or central bank. Their value is completely derived by market forces of supply and demand, and they are more volatile than traditional currencies. Trading in cryptocurrencies comes with significant risks, including volatile market price swings or flash crashes, market manipulation, and cybersecurity risks. In addition, cryptocurrency markets and exchanges are not regulated with the same controls or customer protections available in equity, option, futures, or foreign exchange investing.

Cryptocurrency trading requires knowledge of cryptocurrency markets. In attempting to profit through cryptocurrency trading, you must compete with traders worldwide. You should have appropriate knowledge and experience before engaging in substantial cryptocurrency trading. Cryptocurrency trading may not generally be appropriate, particularly with funds drawn from retirement savings, student loans, mortgages, emergency funds, or funds set aside for other purposes. Cryptocurrency trading can lead to large and immediate financial losses. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position quickly at a reasonable price. This can occur, for example, when the market for a particular cryptocurrency suddenly drops, or if trading is halted due to recent news events, unusual trading activity, or changes in the underlying cryptocurrency system. Several federal agencies have also published advisory documents surrounding the risks of virtual currency. For more information see, the CFPB’s Consumer Advisory, the CFTC’s Customer Advisory, the SEC’s Investor Alert, and FINRA’s Investor Alert.
