Is there such a thing? And if not, would it be worth adding one?

Pretty sure this has been asked before, many moons ago. There still simply isn't enough discussion to warrant a separate sub-forum.

 

Perhaps @freitasm might consider a "Finance" sub-forum for any/all discussion involving currency/finance/banking/etc?





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

"Finance" would be a lot more useful than "cryptocurrencies".

 

However, after seeing some discussions in other forums and social networks, I fear some people would start investing based on advice from non-regulated speculators and when money is lost we would hear "But it was on Geekzone - burn it down."

 

What about no?

Up to you, just thought I would raise the question. Crypto is growing, and more and more people are getting interested. Figured it was something well suited to the GZ community. But there are loads of other forums and places to chat about it so if you are not keen that is all good with me. Feel free to close this topic.

There is a private crypto forum in here, can't remember who you have to ask to get in it though.

I used to have access to that, seems to have disappeared.

There did used to be a private forum about crypto currencies.   Mentioned here:  https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=48&topicid=225615

 

It disappeared a while ago.  I believe the 'owner' of that private form is inactive on Geekzone.

I think finance would be very useful but take your point around liability/getting flamed.

 

These type of threads are happening anyway in other forums, mostly the off topic and Home Workshop DIY one. Could you have some kind of disclaimer or additional FUG you have to agree with before you can access?

Let's see how you folks behave. I have created a new sub-forum called "Finance and Wealth Management".

 

There are some rules. Read before posting.
