Bitcoin skyrockets after Elon Musk tweets about its “promising potential”



Elon Musk has confirmed he has spoken with Bitcoin Miners in North America.

Just a few weeks ago, the Tesla boss made a huge move to suspend Bitcoin transactions at Tesla, meaning customers can no longer purchase an EV using the crypto as a payment method.

Elon sited environmental concerns for bitcoin mining as the reason for that suspension.

The price of Bitcoin jumped about 4% following Musk’s tweet, promising hope that he was having active discussions regarding the sustainability of the digital coin.

Hailed as a ‘crypto king’, Elon Musk has been a big supporter of cryptocurrencies, helping rally the prices of digital coins, including Bitcoin, several times in the past year. His tweets and comments around cryptocurrency often send the prices soaring or plunging.

Germany recalls Tesla models due to emergency fault



Tesla is in the spotlight again, with Germany’s road traffic agency recalling models Y and 3 due to a fault in the automatic emergency call system

It’s a fault that could possibly impact around 59,000 vehicles globally.

Germany’s watchdog says a software flaw is causing a breakdown of the e-Call, a system designed to alert authorities after a serious accident.

The glitch follows the company delivered almost 18 per cent fewer electric vehicles in the second quarter than in the previous.

This is largely due to China’s Covid-19-related shutdowns and the ongoing supply chain crunch.

Meanwhile, CEO Elon Musk says Tesla’s new factories in both Texas and Berlin are “losing billions of dollars”.

World’s first city to charge tourists for visiting



If you’re lucky to be heading abroad this summer, a visit to the famous canals in Venice, Italy might be on your itinerary, but beware of new fees to come.

Venice will charge most of its visitors an entry fee from next year as it tries to tackle overcrowding.

The city’s tourism chief says Venice are pioneers and will be the first city in the world to apply a measure that could be revolutionary.

From mid January next year, day-trippers must book their visit online before travelling.

They will pay a basic fee of 3 euro, which will rise to 10 euro at peak times.

Tourism is bouncing back in Venice after the pandemic with daily visitors again often outnumbering the 50-thousand residents of the city centre.

The scheme will be closely watched by other popular tourist destinations, overwhelmed with travellers around the world.

The number of pubs in England and Wales is continuing to fall, hitting its lowest level on record this year

After struggling through Covid the industry now faced soaring prices and higher energy costs, it warned.

There were just under 40-thousand pubs in June, down by 7,000 in the past decade, according to new research.

In fact, thousands of pubs have closed as younger people drink less, supermarkets sell cheaper alcohol and the industry complains of being too heavily taxed.

Pubs which had “disappeared” from the communities they once served had either been demolished or converted for other purposes, meaning that they were “lost forever”.
