    They just don't make them like they used too.

    Discovery Bank Account

    All the other banks breathed a sigh of relief. Apparently whites hold all the money in SA and after that I'm sure most won't rush to open an account. Funny thing though: there is white outrage (and f*cking rightly so) on Twitter but I do not see blacks taking joy in it or slamming the whites for being "racist" etc. Anyway, I just finished moving my life insurance to them not too long ago but in the past I've felt like moving my medical aid away from them. Won't do any knee jerk reaction but the case for exploring alternatives is much stronger than before where Discovery was seen as the defacto standard. Deep inside me I feel "filthy" knowing I'm helping to fund a company with racist policies - whether those policies come from a place of them trying to do something good or just a political cheapshot (bets on getting more black customers and get the whites anyway despite their outrage).

    The Bitcoin thread

    Hey @BitcoinZAR do you think this is the dip towards the low $4000s people have been calling for earlier this year?

    Discovery Bank Account

    I wish this would be a separate division. That black only scheme is going to cause turmoil. I can completely imagine white discovery insurance holders and businesses pulling their accounts as protest/spite/fck u to bee/insert reason.

    Discovery Bank Account

    Now, if FNB doesn't penalise me via my home loan interest rate for moving my salary deposit to another bank and Discovery doesn't get weird with Vitality requiring a blood test to get a better interest rate, then I might move banks after being with FNB for years. But we'll wait and see...

    I bought R1500 worth of #DSY shares yesterday. Let's hope this banking venture pays off. I would like to catch a Capitec run in the coming years.

    Discovery Bank Account

    I like what they are trying to create here, it really feels like they want to encourage people to save money and not spent money (eBucks encourages spending and debt). I base this off the following article: https://www.businessinsider.co.za/discovery-bank-launch-promises-first-behavioural-bank-2018-11 if that is the case then I might just support this bank to the fullest.

    Discovery Bank Account

    Discovery has launched a bank! #Discoverybank - available to the public March 2019. What is interesting is that black bank depositors will own up to 10% of the bank collectively. It's to help previously disadvantaged individuals get in early on a South African bank.

    Thoughts on Bank Zero

    I agree on the fee issue, but what is a much bigger problem for me is the fact that when we pay someone money via EFT that money leaves my bank account and only reflects in a day or two with the recipient. Banks earn interest on these "overnight transfers" there is no reason for them to do so. In fact the SARB can and do settle all money transfers on a RTGS basis Real Time Gross Settlement , regardless of size of transfer. Which means that we can have our cash paid instantaneously....but nooooo the banks want to hold to earn the interest. They make money despite themselves !

    MTN

    Anyone own MTN shares? I am thinking now that their share price is the same it was 10 years ago and they have some great plans ahead, it might be a good long term stock to add as part of my exposure to Africa? I see they will be opening up a bank in Nigeria and they also have a deal to bring incredibly cheap smartphones to their African outlets. Smartphone: MTN Bank: JOHANNESBURG — Mobile network MTN isn’t walking away from its Nigerian operation anytime soon and if anything, it’s looking to expand its services in that country. This is the message from the company’s Group CEO Rob Shuter who is hoping that authorities in Nigeria will seek an out-of-court settlement regarding a $10.1bn transfer dispute. If MTN manages to get through these choppy waters, a stock market listing in Nigeria, as well as the potential opening up of a new mobile banking unit, is set to be on the cards. – Gareth van Zyl

    This means suspension will not be lifted this year, this is clear, taking from the slow pace this company takes to resolve matters.
