This is really embarrassing but it seems like a good question to ask for TechWeek '23. In 2021 Freetrade gave an NFT as a perk for the £10,000 tier of crowdfunding. It’s nearly 12 months since Freetrade last spoke about it and made promises about it.
Has it been abandoned?
From July 2022:
“absolutely come with perks” - Freetrade, 11th July 2022
“more special perks to be announced shortly.” - Freetrade, 11th July 2022
I get that NFTs are no longer the hot new thing, plus people shouldn’t make decisions about investing based on promised perks but come on @adam & @Viktor…
From Nov 2021:
Please make it cool before launching the next round of Crowdfunding which no doubt will have a new range of perks.
I’m curious how Freetrade has looked to improve efficiency when looking to reach profitability? Do you have some examples where you’ve been able to make noticeable cost savings by automating away processes? Is there any more that can be made that would reduce costs and make customers lives easier?
(For example, updating personal details isn’t automated in app, is this expensive to do manually? You’ve made recent changes to US dividend payouts, has automation played a part in that? )
will reaching profitability change how the company operates or approaches things? One example that comes to mind is reassurance for customers that they’re with a profitable company
there’s been issues with transfers in and out recently, how is this being solved? (This has made me pause on transferring some assets in, partially because I don’t want to add to the problem and partially as I don’t want to deal with the problem )
