After multiple years of delving the Bitcoin rabbit-hole, Murch wrote his master thesis in 2016 about Coin Selection strategies. The Branch and Bound algorithm described in his thesis is used at BitGo, in Bitcoin Core, and other libraries. Murch has been working as a software engineer in the Bitcoin space since graduating.

During his years at BitGo, Murch coordinated BitGo's segwit implementation, overhauled the UTXO management for the wallet used by dozens of exchanges, and served as the UTXO Coin Lead.

Besides Bitcoin, Murch enjoys bouldering, hiking, and boardgames.
