Curve Crowdfunding

Apologies if this has already been posted, did a search and couldn’t find anything.

So Curve have recently announced that they’re crowdfunding:

Curve is Crowdfunding

It appears they’re doing the same as Monzo and giving priority to existing users and offering some additional perks - including a metal investor card.

Interested to hear if anyone else here is a Curve user and if so, will you be investing?

There is a forum page for curve users, might be worth saying hi there.

Been using them when they were in beta, great product. Only cards I carry with me is Monzo and Curve.

This has been discussed over here :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ve seen the investor cards, and as @Rat_au_van mentioned… they look like recycled Coca-Cola bottles :joy:

Completely agree, at least with the plastic ones anyway. The first two metal ones look pretty good IMO.

New plastic investor card design on their forum, a red card with investor on the bottom left.

Does anyone ever really see Curve making any money?

No

I’m typing this in Antigua partly thanks to Curve as I collect air miles through them. Especially good if you are a small company and you pay VAT, corporation tax etc.

I’ll be investing but I think the price seems very high for where they are just now.

They have now updated, crowdfunding goes live 10 AM, Tuesday 3rd September. There is a crowd funding event on Monday at 18:30 which they plan to live stream and upload.

Investor “rewards” have been announced

It’s a bit of a gamble right now imo. If they can get Amex back then they would gain a huge amount more traction. Without Amex I don’t see it getting much further.

A lot of issues with charge backs etc., they have a promising product but it needs work without a doubt (including getting Amex back)

I like Curve and use it everyday, but I always feel they’re a few months from not existing anymore as I really don’t see how they’re going to be able to thrive without VC.
