The possibilities of spending money in the Corona crisis are limited. Larger financial positions such as vacations were only possible to a limited extent, if at all, in the past twelve months. Fashion and shoe stores are closed, as are furniture stores and electronics retailers - if necessary, pre-ordering online and picking up are allowed in addition to online trading.High account balances
Against this background, quite a few are currently looking at positive account balances. How do the people in the region rate the potential to save? Can and do you want to put more on the high edge than last year? And what is important to you?
Laser eyes: This is behind the latest Bitcoin trend
Anyone who is interested in crypto currencies and occasionally hangs around on Twitter will have already noticed: More and more people have laser eyes on their profile pictures. But why? © Shutterstock / Twitter Red laser eyes as the latest bitcoin trend. If you are not suffering from massive nearsightedness and are thinking about an operation, or if you are called Clark Kent and are part-time Superman, you don't have much to do with eye lasers and laser eyes.
This is what we wanted to know from our readers as part of the first major economic and consumer study “WIR im Rheinland” by “Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger” and “Kölnische Rundschau” with the support of Sparkasse Köln-Bonn and Kreissparkasse Köln, at the im January almost 14,000 people from the region took part.
One of the central results: investing in 2021 is possible for a clear majority of those surveyed. 17 percent say they want to do more than last year. And a total of 40 percent assume that their savings will be the same as in 2020.
There is a clear need for security. For 93 percent, security is the top priority when making investments.
However, consumers (84 percent) also want a high return - although the extremely low interest rate level means that significant income can only be obtained with a correspondingly higher risk. Again, 71 percent of those surveyed believe that the money must be readily available. Sustainability of investments and social compatibility are important for 63 percent when choosing the type of investment. Also interesting: Sustainability and social acceptability are more important in Cologne and Bonn than in the surrounding areas.
Musk thinks out loud about its own crypto currency and accidentally causes a rally at MarsCoin
Tesla boss Elon Musk has often caused a sensation in the past with his tweets. In the past few weeks, he has provided a real roller coaster ride on the Cyberdevise with his Twitter posts on Dogecoin.

As expected, the possibility of saving increases with increasing net household income. The age group under 30 years of age is more likely than average to be able to invest more money than in 2020.
Many banks and savings banks in Cologne and the region are now also taking penalty interest from wealthy private customers. A switch from current account or savings book to securities this year is “easy to imagine” for every fifth person.Gold only moderately attractive
If you look at the attractiveness of the investments as a whole, real estate ranks first with 60 percent. The demand here has been high for years, and the supply is accordingly scarce and expensive.
In the next places are stocks and funds or fund shares. Gold, always a supposedly safe haven in crises, only ends up in the middle of the field. Bitcoin or cryptocurrency have so far only been attractive to small groups and are therefore in last place - even behind classic life insurance, which has clearly lost its attractiveness as an investment due to the interest rate level in recent years.
