There are around 180 000 people in the U.S paying for subscriptions to Twitter, including Twitter Blue according to The Information. A concerning number…
What are these whispers of a new bank launching in four days?
Here’s what we know so far.
I have always found space and technology very interesting. To realise how many technological advancements we've achieved at this point. With #Newbank, high-tech farming is made possible, so you can run your farm from the sky. Very intriguing, right?#Newbank coming soon 18/10/22 pic.twitter.com/GFhrwJlbcx

We know it’s modern and cards are most likely to be a thing of the past.
We know that some type of launch for the NewBank which kicks off on Tuesday 18 October 2022.
We know there’s a campaign and a link leading to a potential website.
From our preliminary investigations, we’re convinced it’s not a bank, but a very bad hoax.
A countdown however ends on Tuesday and the online discussions are that the potential bank promises to promote shopping convenience and card-less transactions.

Our suspicions are that its a bank by former FNB CEO Michael Jordaan, bank Zero.
Bank Zero was expected to operate as a mutual savings bank and not a retail bank.
This means the bank would have been owned by it’s members who subscribe to a common fund while retail banks generally are owned by shareholders.
The bank was expected to launch in 2018, 2019 but the Covid19 pandemic struck and there was no other feedback on the potential bank.
We suspect that the bank is finally here.
The bank would focus more on savings as opposed to providing credit.
It would be entirely digital and handle all of it’s services using it’s very own app.
This Bank Zero feature is enough reason to join Bank Zero. ALL online card transactions are approved by you – either on your phone as it happens, or because you’ve listed it on your auto-auth Card Subscriptions list. Otherwise we’ll block it to protect you. https://t.co/EJgNujyTss
