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 Acre 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


Boise, ID


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 Acre 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.

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

Digital Assets are 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. Digital Assets 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 Digital Assets comes with significant risks, including volatile market price swings or flash crashes, market manipulation, and cybersecurity risks. In addition, Digital Asset markets and exchanges are not regulated with the same controls or customer protections available in equity, option, futures, or foreign exchange investing.

Digital Asset trading requires knowledge of Digital Asset markets. In attempting to profit through Digital Asset trading, you must compete with traders worldwide. You should have appropriate knowledge and experience before engaging in substantial Digital Asset trading. Digital Asset 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. Digital Asset 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 Digital Asset suddenly drops, or if trading is halted due to recent news events, unusual trading activity, or changes in the underlying Digital Asset 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.
