Born in Varna, on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast, Tenev grew up in Washington, D.C. 

After earning a degree in mathematics from the prestigious Stanford University, Tenev attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), studying for a PhD.

The latest on Robinhood

Following the WallStreetBets–GameStop story – which saw Jon Stewart create a Twitter account just to join in the conversation – there has been a frenzy of news stories about the trading platform.

For example, the BBC reported that “confused investors” had inundated the unrelated World Wide Robin Hood Society, based in Nottingham.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph reported an 800% overnight increase in the Stockmarket price of Dogecoin, a joke cryptocurrency based on the Shiba Inu dog breed meme.

Elon Musk fuelled that particular fire by tweeting a mockup Vogue magazine cover, edited to read “Dogue”.

He also added his voice to the GameStop story, saying shorting was “legal only for vestigial reasons”.
