Featuring Raoul Pal

Published on: September 6th, 2020 • Duration: 5 minutes

The Exchange is a new platform from Real Vision that allows members to communicate directly with each other and with Real Vision journalists and guests. Real Vision has long served the best of the best in finance. This move expands its footprint from the premier finance publisher in the world to the premier finance community in the world. The Exchange is where the brightest minds in finance engage with each other every day.

    Points awarded based on behavior in the exchange. Sounds just like a social credit score used in authoritarian and totalitarian countries to me. Just more predictive programming to help ease the masses into blindly accepting this kind of nonsense when they roll it out world wide. DISGUSTING thought process but certainly par for the course for the evil world we live in today.

      Steady on there fella, it just gives you points for posting content, comments that are liked, etc. i.e not being a dick. If you think RV is an authoritarian regime, you are free to go to 4Chan...

      A lot of community forums use points. One aim is to gamify the forums, providing incentive to contributors to create and add content. For readers of the forums, it helps them understand who the credible contributors are. For example, your post would be a thumbs down on many community forums.

    "Feel free to disagree, but don't be a dick about it" Love that :-) And great development overall. Very exciting to see where it goes.

      Matt, I don't think that turn of phrase works AT ALL in this particular context. Really wish you had hit the delete button before going ahead.

    Please add the ability to play videos at increased speed as in the app. Watching a one hour video in 60 mins is difficult. I know, a first world problem. Cheers.

    The exchange sounds great - is there a go live date and how is it accessed (I presume it will be in same platform as other RV content and not a stand alone thing)?

      It is live. Just go The Exchange at the top of the RV page.

    More constructive discussions about macro/finance!? love it! Lots of apps I go over every day. And hopefully, discussions here will be a nice resume of what can be found on twitter. All the best to the team and this new project!

      Thanks Guillaume - the team that has been working on this have been killing themselves to make it a valuable addition for our members. I think you're going to love it.

    Thanks Raoul, I’ll give it a try. I’ve been off social media since 2016 due to the toxicity.... perhaps the answer is smaller, more focused communities, similar to the BBS forums we used before social media attempted to monopolise social communication online into only a few spaces to generate revenue through targeted advertising. I have a question though - is Realvision going to be harvesting data from participants for advertising purposes like Facebook and Twitter do?

      We have all your data anyway as you are a subscriber but we would never have the necessary scale to even use it for advertising. You need tens of millions of views to even bother. It makes no sense behind a paywall. We won’t sell your data either. We will send you offers on upgrades, events etc but we do that anyway. We may even have areas of The Exchange sponsored but again, it’s nothing about data collection for targeting, just about covering some costs.

    I am so excited by The Exchange! Already the engagement has blown me away and it's barely launched. The quality of the discussions, debate and thoughtfulness of questions answered is really, really good. We are so lucky to have you as members - the smartest, most thoughtful, interesting people in the world who all have a slightly crazy passion for Real Vision and the financial world we live in. We now all get to hangout together and create our own world. This is a giant leap forwards.

      "Slightly crazy passion" is exactly how I'd define my relationship with RV.

    Basically he's replicating twitter and calls it a new product. Brilliant!

      Why don't you check it out first? It's rather different than Twitter.

      They're starting from the same idea, but trying to do it differently. Not every innovation has to reinvent the wheel (few do) and not every industry has to be a monopoly (competition is usually good, it's supposed to be the essence of free market capitalism).

    I use twitter to glean financial info but dislike some of the negativity of that format. This sounds like the perfect alternative as long as it is properly monitored to avoid the hostile responses often seen on twitter.

    This sounds great, thank you! Quick feedback: Would better to have a date associated with the posts instead of "posted recently"

    Hello, Can you try to make more videos on the fundamental inner workings of the global economy? The fed, money flows, liquidity, feedback loops, things like that. Thank you!

    I’ve been looking forward to this for awhile. Could you try to develop an app for this as a lot of the posts could be done via mobile device.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the concept RP and RV. This could go in so many positive directions, and could also be much bigger than anyone realizes. Best of luck with the execution of a tremendous idea!
