MTI Bitcoin-skema is die grootste crypto-scam nog ooit

Meer as 16 000 Bitcoin is gesteel deur MTI se topbestuur.

Die MTI Bitcoin platform het teen die einde van verlede jaar inmekaargestort. Gebruikers het begin agterkom hulle kan nie meer in log om hulle Bitcoin te onttrek nie. Die platform het so gewerk dat mense Bitcoin oorbetaal aan MTI en hulle dit dan namens jou verhandel sodat jou Bitcoin groei. Op ‘n stadium was daar meer as 16 000 Bitcoin op MTI gelaai! Dit was egter te goed om waar te wees en duisende mense moes hulle beleggins koebaai roep toe MTI se baas, Johan Steynberg eweskielik net verdwyn het. Na dit gebeur het kon niemand meer hulle Bitcoin onttrek nie. Nou het die maatskappy, Chainalysis, hierdie episode as die grootste crypto scam nog ooit bestempel. Hulle het vir mense gewaarsku dat enige Bitcoin-platform wat belowe om buiten gewone groei te waarborg amper altyd ‘n scam is.


Lawyer appears in virtual court with a cat filter on

He has said he wants to start selling merch after the clip went viral. Last week, a Texas lawyer attended virtual court via Zoom. He had the internet in stitches, though, because he had a cat filter turned on. The filter made his entire face look like that of a kitten. At one point, he told the judge his assistant is trying to help him turn the filter off because he doesn’t know how to do it.

The lawyer has seen an opportunity after the ordeal, though. He has said that he wants to start selling merch based on the viral video. Other than that, he also wants to start selling courses and training material on how others can avoid such blunders.


Jou fibre-spoed kan dalk verdubbel

Dit sal geen ekstra kostes inhou nie.

Ocotel is een van die land se grootste fibre maatskappye. Hulle voorsien tans internetlyne aan meer as 2.4 million huishoudings in Suid-Afrika. Hulle het onlangs aangekondig dat hulle die spoed van hulle fibre-lyne gaan verdubbel, sonder om meer geld daarvoor te vra. Octotel voorsien egter net lyne – mense se internet service providers sal op die einde van die dag moet besluit hoe hulle die nuwe spoed vir huishoudings gaan aanbied. Maar sover lyk dit asof hulle bereid gaan wees om vir users op te gradeer sonder enige verhoging in prys. Dit lyk asof hulle dit doen omdat ander fibre maatskappye soortgelyke opgraderings begin aanbied het sedert die begin van die lockdown.


Birkenstocks hits all-time high valuation as a result of the global pandemic

Currently, they are valued at about R71 billion.

Since the start of the pandemic, demand for luxury shoes like high-heels has declined by 21%. In comparison, searches for comfortable slippers have gone up by an astounding 242%, reports The Guardian. This is exactly why Birkenstocks has continued to show excellent growth, despite the global pandemic. The brand is 247 years old and focuses on creating comfortable, orthopedic shoes that are sold around the world. Their sudden increase in sales makes sense. People are staying at home, not dressing up, and have no events to go to. Birkenstocks are thus the perfect shoe for those looking to stay stylish while prioritising comfort. Currently, there is a bidding war going on to acquire a large stake in the company. Birkenstocks has been valued at a whopping R71 billion in a recent evaluation.

The singer enjoys splurging on exotic machinery, with his collection reportedly including cars like the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport and Lamborghini Aventador. The custom car is based on the Rolls Royce EX103 Vision Next 100 Concept car, which Super Car Blondie first reviewed in 2019 and called “the car of 2035”. Although the modifications to the outside panels of the car are obvious, West Coast Customs did not reveal what upgrades were done to the engine.
