Very good opportunity to clarify doubts about the Knowledge Investment in FanBox.

Hi JC,
when I made reservation, Fanbox blacked out, I had to wait till I can open fanbox again. Any way, I have my reservation now that's important.
I have read your post about the method of investment, I think I understood till now, since I was the one who didn't get any earning in your example :((, I was to greedy I guess in your story :-p.
Thanks JC, for being here for us. X

@ OH NO: Yes, those first few minutes were absolutely crazy!

1) Yes, for investing, you can use any funds that are not fully (60 day) matured but they must have matured for 30 days.

2) You will obviously be one of the first... I don't know exactly how fast it will count up but it will be quick.

@ See Hei: As Oh No says, Investments start in 5 days from now -- next Thursday.

@ Alsha: By investing, you can choose to invest in people, knowledge areas, blog posts, Ads and charitable causes -- or you can select to have FanBox choose for you.

Based on your choices, you are funding those people's Ads; or Ads in those knowledge areas; or ads promoting those blog posts; or ads pointing to blogs that support those charitable causes.

It is very interesting.

@ Smartest Angel: The same tax form will work; just lump all your earnings (minus your expenses, such as how much you invested in your ads or investment portfolios) into it.

Don't forget other expenses such as your rent or mortgage (if you work from home), and other expense that enable you to earn on FanBox. (Obviously consult a tax adviser because I am not one).

I have no idea about that, @smartest angel. Talk to your tax advisor. An opinion: Despite the product name, discuss it as an Ad purchase, because that's what it is.

@Krunia - you make money when people click on your Ads -- or into your blogs from any Ad -- whether you fund it or whether investors fund it.

@Twilight: If your "stuck" portfolio is "advanced", it will not necessarily utilize all or any of your money.

Go with the "Simple" when asked "Who or what do you want to invest in".

@Krunal: Please write to customer service so they can have someone review your question. (I don't have any access to your private account).

@Strange: Like all earnings, your investment proceeds can be cashed out 60 days after the month you earned.
