Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it!

I hope you will be able to relax and spend time with family and friends. Perhaps have “julbord” (it’s like a Christmas version of smorgasbord) or some other favorite food.

If you have money to spare and want to do some good, think of Doctors without borders , the Red Cross or some other charity.

This is our first Economy & Finance community. Crypto currencies aren’t just new at Savvity but a little over ten years ago they weren’t even a thing.

Bitcoin is probably the most well known crypto currency. It is getting more attention every day. Some say it’s a scam and tool of the mafia and others think it’s the salvation from money printing central banks and fraudulent governments.

If you are new to crypto currencies you may want to start with the Bitcoin basics. Next you can read a summary of the 100 largest crypto currencies and their specifics. If you are already a Bitcoin “hodler” you should take our survey, “When did you buy your first Bitcoin”.

Due to a faulty text line in an updated file on Savvity's server, the network has not been available for many users.

We are very sorry about this and hope it won’t happen again. The faulty file has been corrected and everything seems to be working as it should.

They look a little like domesticated black panthers and you can teach them to do tricks.

Look at this cat playing fetch . Or listen to Sylvester, who’s talking.

Twelve years ago today, on September 15, 2005, we launched the first few communities on this platform.

I think there were 10 interest communities when we launched. They were all in Swedish. During the next ten years hundreds more followed. Now there are over a thousand communities running on the platform. Each month we have between 1 and 1,5 million visitors.

The English version of the community platform launched this year. Doing it in English is a lot like starting over. There is a certain settler mentality among the new community hosts. We help each other with advice and ideas. We take delight in seeing progress. We even compete a bit. ;-)

A lot of love has gone into building the Savvity community platform over the years. I can’t even count how many versions we have released. Since we, the people behind Savvity, are also users we have much the same wants and needs as other users. When something isn’t working smoothly we usually fix it. When users suggest changes, or new features, that we believe will add to the experience, we try to implement them. It’s in our interest as much as other user’s.

As for celebrations, there probably won’t be that much of it today. Not on behalf of Savvity. My mother turns 75 shortly and will be celebrating tomorrow, so I don’t have to get by without cake and cookies this week. :-)

Thanks to all of you hosts who run communities at Savvity and our Swedish sister, iFokus! Also thanks to our visitors who contribute to the discussions and read what we write! Without you there wouldn’t be much point doing this. :-)

I hope you too will have a great weekend!

Who can't find soul classics they love? There are so many and this community is full of them.

How about Chaka Khan with I'm every woman or Joss Stone with Son of a preacher man?
