Overall review

This isn’t a bank account, once again, but functions as a brokerage account. This is why you can have up to $1M rather than the FDIC of $250K as typical accounts do.

The account works the same as a savings accounts since there’s no debit card attached to the account, however, those may be added as a later feature. APY earning paid beginning of each month.

This type of account allows you unlimited withdrawals each month and you get a very high interest rate.
