Dirk, Philipp and I talk about the dark side of P2P investments in the „deep dive“ podcast. Normally in German, but this time we have a special guest from the Baltic States with us so we had to do this in English. Mr. Peerduck is well known to many as the one who started to keep a watchful eye on the Baltic P2P platforms. As we know by know many of them turned out as scam.
Of course, we talk about warning signs and red flags and how he sees the P2P credit market. But he will also tell us how he invests his money and what he considers a good investment in the Baltic States.
If everything is true – who knows…

Important preliminary remark
In the deep dive podcast we have a special guest today, Mr. Peerduck. He will tell us a lot about red flags and entanglements of Baltic P2P platforms. And how he would invest his hard-earned money.
We don’t know if and how much of it is factual. Whether the duck or the platforms are telling the truth – no idea. Everyone has their own agenda, so please treat every statement with caution. No one knows exactly what is driving Peerduck. But the fact is that he set a lot of things in motion.
And it will be entertaining to you and worth thinking about.
Introduction to Mr. Peerduck
In November 2019 the Roasted Peerduck appeared on Twitter with a cheerful „Hello world“. Pretty quickly, however, it was clear in which direction he wanted to go and to whom he wanted to spread bad news, even if no one took him serious at the beginning. His motivation remained in the dark. Meanwhile, his Twitter account was disabled and there were allegedly even threats against him. But in the meantime the duck is back on twitter and telegram!
And today, for the first time ever, he’s personally on our podcast!
Agenda of the podcast
Yes we had an agenda!
And we even dealt with some of the points – some rather less. The order also varied and we were unable to go into all the topics in depth as we wanted. The duck preferred not to talk about everything either, as expected.
Our planned agenda was:
- Short introduction, who are we (for the English listeners) who is the duck, why he is anonymous
How does the duck invest its money
How does it feel about P2P in general
Opinions about P2P in the Baltic States
What are red flags for them?
The failures and criminals
Does it make a difference if it is fraud or incompetence?
Why should platforms shut down rather sooner than later? Don’t they deserve a chance?
Mr Ducks Investment
An order there could go with captrader for example. They list the opening times of the stock exchange on their pages – but I haven’t asked – it’s not really an investment for me, I’d rather take a US REIT instead.
As mentioned at the beginning – make your own thoughts and evaluate the statements before you take action from them.
Thanks for listening. I hope you enjoyed the episode!
