NuConta, Nubank's free digital account, has gained a feature that allows you to save money in a separate account. By doing so, the amount is reserved and cannot be used for debit purchases or payment slips. The function is useful for those who want to add money or reserve a value for a specific purpose, such as a trip, for example. The balance remains available and has the same yield of 100% of the CDI. The redemption can be made at any time at no charge.
