Lights, camera, action! The past month has been a whirlwind of activity as we prepare for the soft launch of our product and make sure everything is perfect for you. We’ve got behind, and in-front of, the camera, we’ve been from boardrooms to Dubai, and we’ve established a great collaboration with a fantastic company. Without spoiling it, here’s your summary from us over the past month…

Our Views and Experiences

Like any startup, we know there are challenges ahead of us. However, as you should know by now, we’re committed to putting in our all and our hard work is definitely paying off. We were honoured to be filmed by The Fintech Times, explaining Zeux, and describing our views and experiences. …


The 20th November has always been an interesting day. Over the years it has seen the Roman emperor Diocletian ascend to power, it has seen the infamous Nuremberg trials, and it has seen the world let out a deep sigh of relief with the conclusion of the Cuban Missile Crisis. In 2018 it also saw Bitcoin plummet another 30% in value.

If you didn’t already realise, this means Bitcoin, and crypto as a whole, is currently experiencing a bear market — in this case a sharp decline in value.

Oh damn, the Great Recession. How cruel you were. Thanks in large part to this severe economic downturn, millennials have had to enter work and strike out on their own against some pretty nasty barriers. Cumbersome student debts alongside rising costs of living and inflation have made things like ‘acute financial stress’ (AFS) a worrying reality amongst this generation.

In an earlier article we described our Top 5 Mistakes made by Millennials, but today we’re going to go into a little more detail about what sort of financial pressures millennials face, and ways that we can deal with them. Take a deep breath, and don’t panic. …

It’s the dream isn’t it? We’d all love a magic button which suddenly lowers prices and pushes up wages, but alas, most of us accept that we’re limited by our money.

Well, that just isn’t true! Whether you’re a graduate, young professional, or seasoned veteran, there’s always a way to start spending less and earning more.

Research suggests millennials can be quite carefree with their money, or go about saving the wrong way, so now it’s time to talk about the ways we can improve our spending habits, and make the most of those consequent savings.

The first step is to know your necessities. Most of us are unaware how much we spend on ‘stuff’, but ask yourself exactly what do you really need? Have more clothes than you can fit in your wardrobe? Subscriptions to Netflix? Spotify? Amazon Prime? Order takeaways a bit too much? Cutting back on a few of these ‘nice to haves’ can make a difference, an extra £100 to £200 in the bank? …

Technologically savvy, effortlessly adaptable, cultured and confident — millennials are many things, but they tend to fall short in the money department. With the economy beset by rising prices, depressed wages and the morose prospect of working longer and earning less than their parents, they need to be as careful as they can with their finances, now more than ever.

There are plenty of us out there and we all know how difficult it can be to succeed financially in today’s climate. However, all is not lost. …
