  1. Everyone’s talking about it. NFT, which stands for non-fungible tokens, has seen a massive resurgence lately, with people parting with thousands and millions of dollars to boast digital ownership over certain pieces of art, memes, and even tweets through blockchain technology. Hopping on the train, Elon Musk recently tweeted, “I’m selling this song about NFTs as an NFT.” I’m selling this song about NFTs as an NFT pic.twitter.com/B4EZLlesPx — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 15, 2021 The video features a techno track in the background, with a rotating trophy that has the words “NFT”, “Vanity Trophy”, “Computers”, and “HODL” (an acronym for Hold On for Dear Life) on it, besides other stuff like dogs and hands and the like… you know, general trophy stuff. And he might have already found a buyer in Beeple, a digital artist who’s sold quite a bit of NFT art of his own. i'll give you $69M for it. https://t.co/DMd4EEOGCZ — beeple (@beeple) March 15, 2021SOLD. — beeple (@beeple) March 16, 2021Hold up, what’s NFT?Some of you might be in the know already but if this is the first you’re hearing of it, allow me to introduce you to the internet’s latest obsession: NFT. Though it’s been here for a while, 2020 proved to be the year when NFT really came into the limelight and now it seems like all anyone can talk about. Basically, an NFT is a digital certificate that contains a string of data that allows you to prove ownership over a particular piece of work that exists only on the internet — like a meme, a video, a song, digital art, or even a tweet that went viral. Though it’s mined similarly, unlike cryptocurrency, it does not have a “fungible” value. That is, the value of an NFT cannot be interchanged with another NFT as each one is unique. Pretty similar to how original art and paintings sell for their perceived value in the market. And you can be sure, people are giving a lot of value to these NFTs. Sounds great! Where do I sign up?Hold on a second! Before you go traversing the murky waters of the NFT craze, you should know that all’s not rainbows and cat memes. For one, NFTs come with huge environmental costs, even by cryptocurrency standards. And if the well-being of our planet doesn’t scare you off, then the hidden “gas fees” they charge you for the computing energy it takes to validate transactions might. Plus, imagine claiming ownership to a meme or a picture that anyone can download with a click… Who knows how long the hype for this ownership may last? View the full article
  2. Indian business tycoon Gautam Adani has beaten the likes of Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Mukesh Ambani, in a rather unique metric. He has added more to his wealth than any other businessman in the world, as per a report by Bloomberg. © Adani Group Just to be clear, he hasn’t toppled the big two, Bezos & Musk as the richest individuals on earth, not yet at least. However, if this is the rate at which Adani and his businesses grow, if this is how the investors in the stock market continue to favour his enterprises, that day shouldn’t be that far off. © Reuters Adani has added over $16.2 Billion to his net worth, thanks to the massive and rapid expansion that his businesses, which range from shipping ports to power plants, and now data centres, have seen. © Reuters Most of Adani’s businesses have seen rather spectacular growth. Adani Total Gas Ltd. for example has jumped 96 per cent this year. Adani Power Ltd. and Adani Ports and Special Economic Zones Ltd. on the other hand, have gained more than 52 per cent this year. © Reuters As per a report filed by Business Line, shares of all Adani group stocks, except one, have rallied at least 50 per cent this year. © Reuters Coming back to the $16.2 billion figure, if you still aren’t fazed by the figure, we’re sure the figure in Indian Rupees will baffle you. It stands at Rs 11,77,56,58,50,000. Good luck trying to read that number as per the Indian numerical system. Adani is not the only one who has added exponentially to their net worth this year. Larry Page & Sergey Brin, the former bosses at Google added about $14.3 Billion & $13.8 Billion respectively. © Reuters Investment Guru Warren Buffet, too, added a handsome $12.1 Billion to his net worth. © Reuters Indian people on Twiter, though, were not particularly happy about this, for a number of reasons. But let’s not mention the environmental destruction he caused whilst making that money #Australia — Some bloke in Canberra (@BoganJosh) March 12, 2021I appreciate the news but we must not forget one thing. It is easy to double $1 than $1000. Same way $25bn than $175bn. — Mediocre Man (@Mediocre_Gopal) March 12, 2021And then of course, there were those who criticised the government for this... Well....the employee of the year award goes to- pic.twitter.com/2FFA30OhxK — Ami Ami Ami....Ami jaat Cobra (@JalaDoodh) March 12, 2021 And those who saw nothing wrong in any of this... why doesnt anyone blame american prezs even if bill gates is the richest person for years? he too was an ordinary man once. — शैलजा #ModiVolunteer (@ModiVolunteer) March 12, 2021What are your thoughts on this? Should this be seen as a first-generation entrepreneur’s success, or something else, something much nefarious? Do let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  3. “I think possessions kinda weigh you down,” said multi-billionaire Elon Musk when talking to Joe Rogan. And since, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has been rapidly selling his properties to rid himself of material possessions. Caption: Elon Musk on the Joe Rogan Experience. It all started on the first of May, 2020, when he tweeted, “I am selling almost all physical possessions,” further clarifying that he “will own no house.” I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 1, 2020 And he has made good on that promise. Musk, who had then owned a real estate portfolio of about $114 million, is now left with one house, near San Jose in Northern California — listed for $35 million in the market. And if you’re as curious as we are about this as we were, then here’s all you need to know about the houses he has sold in his mission to “own no house”: 1. Gene Wilder’s Estate- The 'Quirky House' Of The Willy Wonka Actor © zillow Yes, one of his six Bel Air properties, Elon Musk had indeed owned the home of the late actor Gene Wilders, which he had bought in 2013 to “preserve the spirit of Gene Wilder”. Though he never lived in the house, he had used it as a private school—named AdAstra—for his children and children of some of the top SpaceX and Tesla employees. And while selling the house, he had been clear that the buyer must not harm the house’s “soul” or tear it down. Just one stipulation on sale: I own Gene Wilder’s old house. It cannot be torn down or lose any its soul. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 1, 2020 Soon, it was revealed that he had sold the former Wilder estate to Elizabeth Hunter, the wife of Wilder’s nephew Jordan Walker-Perlman, for $7 million in an off-market deal. And, apparently, he lent as much as $6.7 million to help them buy the property too. 2. His First Sale And Largest Bel-Air Mansion For $29 Million © zillow This 20,000-square-foot property was the beginning of it all, the first and the largest of his Bel Air estates to go after he had declared his intentions to the world. With seven bedrooms and thirteen bathrooms, the property had been up for sale with an asking price of $30 million and had sold for $29.72 million to Chinese billionaire William Ding, which is reportedly about $5.5 million more than what he paid when buying it in 2016. 3. The 4 Bel Air Properties That Came As A Packaged Deal © zillow In a Zillow listing, the four of his remaining properties in Bel Air had a combined asking price of $62.5 million and a fancy description to go with: “A project for the big thinker, designed to showcase one of the best views in Los Angeles - from the city to the ocean and beyond.” The properties, all vastly different in architecture and their individual worth ranging between $4 million to $30 million, made him a profit of about $6.8 million, going for $61.8 million combined. 4. The Precursor: The Brentwood Property Sold In 2019 © realtor Way before the public declaration of his intentions, Musk had already sold a 0.28-acre modern home in Brentwood in August 2019 for $3.9 million. Only about 20 minutes away from his six former Chalon-Somera properties, the property had reportedly cost Musk about $3.7 million in 2014. 5. The Last One Standing © realtor Now, after almost a year of shedding his material baggage, it has all come down to one huge 100-year-old mansion near San Jose. The Hillsborough estate is built on 47 acres of land, with 9 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, and just about anything you could imagine including hiking trails, canyons, a ballroom, and a reservoir. Originally listed for $35 million in May 2020, it seems he has taken down the listing for now. Still, it looks like there is every possibility that the property will be relisted and Musk will complete his quest to rid himself of all his real estate assets. “Freedom,” Elon Musk had tweeted. And well… if this is freedom, I think I would quite like the other end of things instead, thank you very much. Freedom — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 2, 2020 But more power to you, a wealthy billionaire with more than enough money to easily buy a new home or several anytime he wants. It’s the thought that counts, I suppose? View the full article
  4. Tesla chief Elon Musk was recently trending for becoming the world's richest person. It's indeed a prestigious title to claim from Jeff Bezos, who held the title for more than three years. It's surprising to see how much Elon Musk has achieved despite all the hardships that his company was facing. Well, let's just say that Elon Musk's reign as the world's richest person was brief because Jeff Bezos has reclaimed it. This happened after Tesla Inc. shares slid 2.4% on Tuesday, wiping $4.6 billion from Musk's fortune. It knocked him down from the top spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index ranking.

  5. The latest social media app that has taken the online world by storm is the invite-only ‘Clubhouse’ app. The app is now amongst the other social media apps like Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter to be evaluated over a billion dollars in a short span of time. But what exactly is Clubhouse? and why is it so popular? Well, it's currently an invite-only audio chat app that is currently exclusively available on the iPhone and will soon launch for Android. The app is basically used for connecting with other people based on a variety of topics. You can talk about anything and everything including cryptocurrency, video games, local bands or any topic you think you want to talk about. It works like a public audio call which you can participate in as well, provided the host lets you. © unsplash To use the app, one needs to be invited and then sign up for an account. You can then search for various topics and join rooms for listening to conversations or take part in them. Rooms can be set as public or private as well. You can either just be an audience member or host one yourself on a topic that interests you. There need to be at leat two people in a room for it to be formed and can host up to a few thousand participants. Elon Musk has been using the application quite regularly to discuss a variety of topics and most recently invited Russian President Vladimir Putin for a conversation as well. On Clubhouse, users cannot post any pictures or text-based posts either. There is no direct message feature as the app only focuses on voice communications. © unsplash On Clubhouse, each room can have a host, moderator and audience members. In theory, Clubhouse works very similar to Discord albeit presented in a different format. Rooms look like a virtual panel discussion at a conference and the flow of conversation can be controlled by moderators and hosts. Moderators and hosts can allow audience members to speak when it’s their turn and in turn mute them as well. Audience members can use the “raise your hand” function to join the panel or ask questions. Panel members or moderators can then decide to allot speaking time to audience members or not. Clubhouse is now being used by stand-up comedians as well to host impromptu shows on the app. Many notable people have already joined the voice-based social media app including Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and Steve Ballmer amongst others. Musk recently spoke to Robinhood CEP Vladimir Tenev about the Gamestop stock manipulation and the room had reached its 5,000 per-room limit in a matter of seconds. Since then, the app has seen millions of downloads and according to Sensor Tower, Clubhouse has already gained over 5 million new users. © unsplash Clubhouse is currently free to use and does not have any ads, however the company is planning to roll out a subscription model for creators in the future. The app is currently only accessible for iPhone users and will soon make its way to Android as well. Founders Paul Davison and ex-Google employee Rohan Seth recently said in a blog post, “Our goal was to build a social experience that felt more human — where instead of posting, you could gather with other people and talk. Our north star was to create something where you could close the app at the end of the session feeling better than you did when you opened it, because you had deepened friendships, met new people and learned.” Elon Musk seems to be enjoying his time on Clubhouse and he even teased a conversation with Kanye West.

  8. Elon Musk turns his attention to cryptocurrency Dogecoin which surged more than 60% after he tweeted about it
  9. A couple of days ago Elon Musk tweeted saying he's taking a break from Twitter. Well today, he showed up on Twitter with a bunch of tweets praising a cryptocurrency. Yeah, the Tesla chief broke his Twitter silence with a series of tweets this morning praising Dogecoin. Elon's tweets sent the crypto's price high as a lot of people decided to buy the coin. His first tweet itself was enough to send the value of Dogecoin surging by over 44-percent. "The most entertaining outcome is the most likely," he wrote. It was clearly a reference to his older tweets that urged Doge's value. Doge — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 4, 2021 In fact, his tweets drove up the stocks of Etsy and Signal and helped boost the GameStop surge too. They're clearly some fortune-making tweets. Obviously, it's hard to tell if Dogecoin is going to hit any record-breaking numbers because of Musk's tweets today. But looking at his track record, it's very likely that a lot of people will end up making a lot of money. As soon as Dogecoin saw a surge in its price, Elon Musk tweeted a meme based on the iconic Lion King scene. He posted a picture of his face superimposed over Rafiki, holding up the Doge meme. Doge meme, in case you don't know, is the logo for Dogecoin. That particular tweet was followed by two more Dogecoin tweets. We saw Dogecoin's value surge each time he tweeted out something in favor of the crypto. We're sure the investors are crowding to buy the coin. In fact, a lot of crypto-trading services and apps were down when Dogecoin saw a surge. ur welcome pic.twitter.com/e2KF57KLxb — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 4, 2021 "Dogecoin is the people's crypto," said one of his tweets later. And the other tweet said - "No highs, no lows, only Doge." It's hard to tell if Elon is just trolling or genuinely making the market go crazy with his tweets. Either way, his tweets are making it big, sending huge waves across the crypto market. A lot of apps and services are available in India for crypto trading too. If you think you can make it big on the crypto market, then now is as good a time as any other to try your luck. View the full article
  10. "Off Twitter for a while," the Tesla and SpaceX founder tells his 44.5 million followers on the platform
  11. Tesla's chief and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has surpassed Jeff Bezos to become the world's richest person. Including his company's shares, Elon Musk had a net worth of more than $188.5 billion yesterday. That's $1.5 billion more than Bezos. Musk's personal wealth has been boosted by last year's more than eight-fold surge in the share of Tesla. It's now the most valuable carmaker in the world, which is also a huge success for Musk. He has a 20% stake in Tesla about $42 billion of unrealized paper gains on vested stock options. © Reuters He has also set up the Boring Company to make affordable tunnels below busy cities for an all-electric public transport system. This will enable people to avoid the nasty traffic jams. Musk is doing a lot of great things and we wish him only the best for his future as well. Source: Bloomberg View the full article
  12. Elon Musk's net worth crossed $185bn (£136bn) after shares in the electric car company soared by 4.8%
  13. According to the BBC report, Tesla was valued at $60bn (£45bn), but it has now grown to be worth 10 times that amount
  14. Elon Musk tweeted last night saying he wanted to sell Tesla to Apple during its “darkest days” when the Model 3 rollout was supposed to happen. He unveiled that Apple CEO Tim Cook “refused” to take the meeting for the possible sale of the company to Apple. © Reuters "During the darkest days of the Model 3 program, I reached out to Tim Cook to discuss the possibility of Apple acquiring Tesla (for 1/10 of our current value)," . Musk wrote “He refused to take the meeting.” Apple dished out the details in response to a tweet about how Apple has started to work on its self-driving car. He noted that Tesla was worth about one-tenth than what it is worth today. Tesla’s market capitalisation closed at $607 billion which is ten times more than what it was at the time when Musk wanted to sell the company to Apple for about $60 billion. © Reuters It seems like Apple has once again sparked its interest in an electric self-driving car as the company hired many ex-Tesla executives along with buying companies that make equipment for self-driving technology. A recent report suggests that Apple might launch its self-driving car in the next five years as the company has started talks with major suppliers of vehicle electronics to gear up for production in the U.S. © Twitter_9to5Mac Apple has also partnered with its trusted chip partner TSMC to develop a chip for its self-driving cars. The Cupertino giant also recently shifted its leadership to John Giannandrea who is the company’s head of artificial intelligence. According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple recently made progress on a potential battery breakthrough which could result in the launch of the self-driving car sooner than expected. Apple has been developing a lithium-ion phosphate battery that can be put together more tightly in the car’s battery pack. This in turn reduces weight while also increasing the energy density. In 2015, Musk said that an electric car was “the next logical thing” for Cook and Apple to work on. “It’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches,” Musk said. View the full article
  15. Elon Musk visited the Ashton Martin manufacturing unit in the year 2008 and at that time he was treated as an ‘amateur car builder’. However, he is at the moment the owner of the world’s best automobile corporations. The CEO of Aston Martin had acted quite grumpy with him over the years as and when Elon Musk toured its manufacturing units. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO took to Twitter to respond to the incident in a funny tweet. Checkout the tweet here- He was indeed quite grumpy, but we did not actually know what we were doing, so he had a point — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 17, 2020 The same incident was described in 2015 in an e-book named Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance. However, the incident went viral after the tweet that was posted recently. Tesla Owners Silicon Valley took to Twitter saying, “Hey @elonmusk how did your visit in 2008 to @astonmartin change what you did with @tesla? when Musk visited Aston Martin to see a tour of its factory, the CEO treated @elonmusk ‘like an amateur car builder.” To which Elon Musk responded saying, “He was indeed quite grumpy, but we did not actually know what we were doing, so he had a point.” Here’s what people on the internet have to say about this- Powerful! Just image in 15 years when we post side by sides of starship prototypes being stacked ring by ring vs the starship factory cranking them out for the Mars fleet. I can’t wait! — Robben4days (@Robben4days) December 17, 2020Given that Aston Marton apparently has zero plans to go electric, I doubt he has any regret. It's more likely that he still thinks Tesla is an aberration that will go bankrupt any day now and AM will be able to continue making ICE cars without worrying about this whole EV "fad." — paulee 🧢 (@paulee) December 17, 2020September 28, 2008 ️ pic.twitter.com/TbXXX2LXcu — Eva Fox 🦊 狐 (@EvaFoxU) December 17, 2020Phenomenal 12 years.

  16. The 49-year-old entrepreneur?s net worth rose by $7.2bn to $127.9bn following a surge in Tesla's share price
  17. Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has added over $100 billion to his wealth this year, and this has made him the second wealthiest man in the world. He has surpassed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates as the world’s second-richest person. Musk’s net worth surged $7.2 billion to $127.9 billion—above Gates at $127.7 billion for the first time—trigged by yet another 7 percent jump in Tesla’s stock price. As Tesla's market value approached $500 billion, Elon Musk had a one-word reaction on Twitter. Here’s how Elon responded: Wow — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 23, 2020 As he has surpassed Bill Gates, people have flooded Twitter with memes and they will crack you up. Well, people have referred to Sacred Games and Mirzapur’s dialogues for the memes. Here are the memes: #ElonMusk to #BillGates pic.twitter.com/QeR31nHVF1 — Delhiite // follow back (@thebitch_slayer) November 24, 2020#ElonMusk becomes the world's 2nd richest person by replacing #BillGates Meanwhile He* Memers* pic.twitter.com/TeNoN6tKbt — AKKi (@ItsNotFunnyAKKi) November 24, 2020#ElonMusk now 2nd richest person and everyone tweet about him #BillGates Now* pic.twitter.com/AfBhBoffNr — Boby Roshan (@BobyRoshan_) November 24, 2020#ElonMusk beats #BillGates to become second richest person Meanwhile Elon Musk:- pic.twitter.com/b2fhwx47ks — Raj Aditya (@chiku_9693) November 24, 2020#BillGates after seeing #ElonMusk as the 2nd richest person pic.twitter.com/1tubReOupY — Stone Cold 3:16 (@smit24shah) November 24, 2020Elon Musk and Bill Gates have engaged in occasional verbal spats in the past. The Tesla chief executive once described his conversations with Bill Gates as ‘pretty underwhelming,’ as a response to which the Microsoft co-founder had later slammed Mr. Musk for his comments on the coronavirus pandemic. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has been the world's richest man since 2017 when he bumped Bill Gates from the top spot. We wonder how Bill Gates and Elon Musk would react to these memes.

  18. Elon Musk has hit a new apex when it comes to his total net worth as he has now become the second-richest person in the world. Musk overtook Microsoft chief Bill Gates as his wealth saw a rise from $7.2 billion to $127.9 billion according to a report by Bloomberg. © Reuters Musk’s net worth has seen an addition of over $100 billion in 2020 alone and it's the highest for any person on the Bloomberg Billionaire Index. The sudden increase in Musk’s net worth comes due to a sudden surge in the value of Tesla shares which are valued four times more than his SpaceX stakes. To put things into perspective, Musk was ranked 35th on the top richest list at the start of the year in January. He overtook Gates who at the moment has a net worth of $127.7 billion and has now been pushed to the third position. It is worth noting that Gates makes large donations for charity via the Bill Gates foundation, somewhere around $27 billion estimated by Bloomberg. © Reuters Having said that, the wealth gap between the two could be temporary as the difference is not considerable and the two can switch places depending on how their shares perform. Currently, Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world with a net worth of $182 billion. What’s interesting is that Musk’s recent climb in ranks is only the second time in Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index’s eight-year history where Microsoft Corp. co-founder Gates has ranked lower than number two. Bloomberg said in their report “Musk's milestone marks only the second time in the index's eight-year history that Microsoft Corp. co-founder Gates has ranked lower than number two. He held the top spot for years before being bumped by Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos in 2017. Gates's net worth of $127.7 billion would be much higher had he not donated so prodigiously to charity over the years. He has given more than $27 billion to his namesake foundation since 2006.” © Reuters The Bloomberg report also went on to add that 2020 has been one of the most lucrative years for the world’s richest people. “Despite the pandemic and widespread layoffs that have disproportionately affected the world's working class and poor, the members of the Bloomberg index have collectively gained 23% -- or $1.3 trillion -- since the year began,” said Bloomberg.

  19. A few days ago, Elon Musk had hinted at Tesla's entry into the Indian market. Although we have little to no details about the company's official entry here, it looks like a lot of people are already excited. Yesterday, even the Maharashtra state tourism and environment minister Aaditya Thackeray tweeted out inviting Tesla to the state. In a tweet, Aaditya Thackeray said he and industries minister Subhash Desai had a video call with Tesla executives earlier in the day to invite them to the state. Here, check it out - This evening I had the opportunity to participate in a video call by Industries Minister @Subhash_Desai ji with @Tesla team to invite them to Maharashtra. I was present not because of just the investment but my firm belief in electric mobility & sustainability @elonmusk — Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) October 22, 2020 He further noted they are firmly committed to policy building and changes for sustainable development. He thinks that electric mobility supported by renewable energy is the way ahead. We are firmly committed to policy building and changes for sustainable development and I personally believe that electric mobility, supported by renewable energy is the way ahead. Let’s hope we can help this thought become mainstream soon — Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) October 22, 2020 Tesla has had a successful run in the western market and we think it'll have a great stride in the Indian roads as well. We're not entirely sure when the company is making its way to India but we think it's a great move. © Reuters Tesla is also working hard to make its electric cars more affordable. Tesla chief Elon Musk promised over the next several years to slash battery costs in half with new technology and processes. It'll be interesting to see how their cars are priced in the Indian market. View the full article
  20. Last night, a bunch of prominent Twitter accounts were hacked by Cryptocurrency scammers that included accounts of Elon Musk, Kanye West, Bill Gates, Apple, amongst many others. The hack was soon noticed and even more, accounts started to get compromised. © Reuters Scammers tweeted a Bitcoin wallet address on behalf of these accounts promising to send double the amount of BTC if a user sent $1000 worth first. The scam took place in two rounds where the first tweet was deleted after which a similar post was posted again. NEW: Hackers take over Twitter accounts of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and many more. pic.twitter.com/UGXEkYunHb — Norbert Elekes (@NorbertElekes) July 15, 2020 The tweets posted from Musk’s account were indeed fake and read as “You know I living giving back to my community. I’m doubling all BTC payments sent to my address. You send $1,000 and I will send #$2,000 back! Tell your family & friends! Only going on for 30 minutes. (sic).” Similarly, a tweet with a subtle change was posted to Many Wests’ accounts as well with the slight change reading as “I’m Giving Back to my fans, I’m doubling all BTC payments sent to my address. You send $1,000 and I will send #$2,000 back! Tell your family & friends! Only going on for 30 minutes.” © Reuters Soon after, accounts of Jeff Bezos, Warran Buffet, Apple, Uber amongst many others also posted similar messages. Twitter accounts getting hacked is a fairly common occurring, however, it is the first time high-profile accounts were targeted. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded to the hack tweeting “We all feel terrible this happened. We're diagnosing and will share everything we can when we have a more complete understanding of exactly what happened,” According to blockchain.com that has been tracking the scammer’s account, the perpetrator was able to gather as much as $118,211.37 in Bitcoin currency and almost the entire amount has already been withdrawn. When converting the total amount to Indian currency, the scammer was able to get Rs 88,93,927.95. How Did It Happen?According to Twitter Support, the attach was carried out by people who “successfully targeted some of our employees with access to internal systems and tools”. “We know they used this access to take control of many highly-visible (including verified) accounts and Tweet on their behalf. We’re looking into what other malicious activity they may have conducted or information they may have accessed and will share more here as we have it,” as tweeted by the official account. Twitter also said the social media giant has restricted access to internal systems and tools as well as limited functionality to affected accounts. In Twitter’s investigation, everything points to the same perpetrate who was behind the cryptocurrency scam. View the full article
  21. From calling a rescue operator a “pedo guy” on Twitter, to smoking weed during one of the most-watched podcasts, and naming his child a seemingly random combination of characters, Elon Musk surely knows how to stay in the news. However, if there is one celebrity billionaire who is actually, at the face of it, seemingly working for the betterment of human lives, it is Elon Musk. © Reuters We have come to recognise him as that eccentric billionaire who has successfully privatised space travel and is making us rethink cars and personal automobiles, thanks to Tesla. Some of us, who have followed the man know him since his days at X.com or what came to be known as PayPal. What most of us don't know, is how he came to be the billionaire that he is. © Reuters Well, technically, we know how he earned his billions; what most of us don't know, is how exactly he earned his first billion dollars, the milestone that is the hardest to crack into. The thing is, once you have your first billion, it becomes relatively easy to expand your fortune - most billionaires have said so in a number of interviews. What one really needs to be careful about, is how they invest their money, and that they do not squander it away on pointless things. So how did Elon Musk manage to do it? Making the first billion for him was indeed difficult, as compared to the rest of his $54 Billion. © Reuters 1. Starting Out With Odd Jobs © Reddit/r/muskclan Musk got his first paycheck for $500 when at the age of 10, he developed a computer game. When as a teen, he moved to Canada from South Africa, is where he really started working. Before enrolling in college education, he worked as a lumberjack and would cut trees for a lumber company. During this time, he would also work a number of odd and hazardous jobs that would be paying high, like cleaning out the rooms where the logs were disinfected and cleaned, just because no one was willing to do it. Imagine a guy with degrees in Economics and Physics doing such odd jobs, today. 2. Establishing His First Company © Reddit/r/muskclan Borrowing some money from his dad, Elon and his brother Kimbal, during the Dot Com boom, started a company called Zip2, a company that provided real-time maps to media outlets. This was one of the first rudimentary GPS systems that was easily accessible for the common public. This company was bought by Compaq for about $310 Million, of which, musk got about $22 Million. The brothers went on to open up X.com the world's first digital payment and online bank that allowed international transactions. X.com bought a software security company called Confinity, the real founders of PayPal. Soon, the venture was renamed as PayPal. 3. Selling PayPal © Reddit/r/muskclan Contrary to popular belief, Elon Musk did not become a billionaire when e-Bay bought PayPal. All Musk earned from that venture was $180 Million. E-Bay made that acquisition for $1.5 Billion, but because there were a lot of investors, and partners in X.com, Elon got just over 10-12 per cent of the deal. 4. Establishing SpaceX © Reuters With the proceeds he got from the sale of PayPal, Musk started his 3rd company, SpaceX or Space Exploration Technologies. Within 6 years, it was regularly getting contracts from NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station. During this time, NASA also outsourced the development of some major projects to SpaceX. This is the business venture that vastly contributed to Musk's personal wealth. 5. Establishing Tesla Incorporated © Reuters Musk was always interested in the physics of energy, and had even gotten into Stanford University's doctoral program before he started his first company. After establishing SpaceX, Musk founded Tesla. Although we know Tesla today as one of the most valuable automobile companies in the world, automotive is just one of the many aspects of the company. There was a time when a majority of the company's cash flow came from providing plans and components for solar power plants and high volume electricity storages that were sustainable in nature. It was Tesla's energy division, which was earlier called SolarCity before it was acquired by him, that really earned Musk his first Billion. © Reuters Tesla won a number of government contracts, especially outside the USA regarding his energy storage solutions. We're talking about massive storage systems, ones that could power entire cities for days without end. From here on out, Musk went completely bonkers - he founded The Boring Company, which shares, invested more into his Hyperloop project, and invested in his AI company. View the full article
  22. Elon Musk is the most unusual billionaire, and we don't even know what he'll do, because it's always the unexpected. Along with being the genius owner of Tesla and SpaceX, he's also basically a troll on Twitter at this point. Just going through his tweets sometimes makes me question, "how high is this guy right now?" And well, I of course picture this iconic moment. © Twitter Now, we all know that Tesla's latest exciting offering is the Cybertruck, which looks like something we all drew as a kid, and it's so weird that it's actually cool. People have already pre-booked this unique looking car/truck/whatever and Elon himself has been driving the prototype around LA for months, increasing the hype even more. Along with sharing 'dank memes', he also regularly answers questions by people about his various cars and this time he was discussing the Cybertruck with a few people and said that it can even float for a while. Yes. It will even float for a while. â Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 20, 2020 Again, the question stands - what the hell is he exactly making? We all live in a grey submarine? Cybertruck can float for a while. The first real submarine car from Tesla. https://t.co/yHkJ3CHGPq pic.twitter.com/Lj5Hey0Vfm â Legacy is f***ed (@tesla4k) April 20, 2020 We'll see.

Yes Elon, it will even "fly" for a while too. https://t.co/NQTU266AuY â Tony Borroz (@TonyBorroz) April 21, 2020 It's a hybrid!

  23. Tesla CEO Elon Musk is offering free FDA-approved ventilators to countries that need it most for patients affected by COVID-19. Musk will be sending the ventilators free of cost to hospitals in regions where the electric car manufacturer operates and delivers. The ventilator will also be sent without any delivery charges. © Reuters "Device & shipping cost are free. Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please (let) me or @Tesla know," Musk said in a tweet. It is currently not clear how many ventilators are on offer and how the company plans to prioritise which hospital needs it most. Previously, Musk promised to give hundreds of ventilators to hospitals in New York City which happens to be badly hit by the outbreak in the United States. We have extra FDA-approved ventilators. Will ship to hospitals worldwide within Tesla delivery regions. Device & shipping cost are free. Only requirement is that the vents are needed immediately for patients, not stored in a warehouse. Please me or @Tesla know. â Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 31, 2020 There have been more than 8,25,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world and has resulted in more than 40,000 confirmed deaths. At a time when the world is facing tough times, Musk has come to the rescue by committing to getting ventilator to the people who need them most. © Reuters However, Musk does have one condition that the ventilators be used for the recovery of patients rather than have it stored in a warehouse. Ventilators have proven to be crucial medical equipment as the novel virus attacks the lungs and causes severe difficulty in breathing. American car company Ford also plans to make 50,000 ventilators for COVID-19 patients within the next 100 days. View the full article
