Monzo User number should start at 1 for US Customers

It would be cool if this number only reflected the number of US customers

If Joint Accounts don’t keep their own count, I don’t see why US ones should. :man_shrugging:


The aim is to get to 1bn globally, so it’s good to see where you are on that overall journey. I was one of the first non-staff on Android, but my number is in the thirty thousands, cos it was launched so long after iOS. Breakdowns of any sort just add complexity.

Highly unlikely - Monzo won’t have multiple customer tables in the DB, they’ll have one.

I wonder if compliance with US banking regulations involves having data stored on servers within the US? Probably. In which case there would be a second set of data, independent of the current UK database.

What he said. This isn’t the reason. Even if it were, it’s trivial to manipulate DB data, that’s kinda the point.

You could easily create views that would show the sequence within different groups


Yes but why have two customers with customer number 1? Even if you have a separate customer reference, there’s just no point.


It’d likely just be @oliver that is number 1 on both, anyway! :cowboy_hat_face:

Because they are the first US customer and the first UK customer obviously. It’s basic database architecture.

There is the overall customer number and then internally there is probably a 2nd number of the product UK/US/Joint/Business it would be nice if they displayed that I guess.

I mean it in a way that it would be pure curiosity and joy rather anything functional. Sometimes the former is more important :smiley:
