Re: neon-free = free CHF account?

Why does this scepticism oddly remind me of when I started the >>Revolut<< thread in 2015?

Anyway, these neon-dudes are linked to and using the services of "Hypothekarbank Lenzburg", a well established bank within Switzerland's deposit protection scheme.

So I guess, yes, this neon-experiment might well go belly up, but in this case customer's wouldn't lose a dime (unless parking more than 100k Chuffs).

It might as well get just as successful as Revolut is now.

IŽll give them a go and check them out.
It is not a matter of being skeptic or powered by optimism my friend, but rather look at reality . Also, I have never said they won't become as successful as Revolut is. I simply stated the obvious, i.e., that I won't be trusting a beta system with all my money.

In IT terms "beta" means not a final version. Banks with a proper system (read: systems that have been around for some time) fail from time to time, e.g., I remember a few posts about PF e-banking being down, the debit card being swallowed by the ATM, etc.
What makes you think that their "beta" system will be more reliable?
