Nearly 6,000 Tesla vehicles are being recalled due to loose brake bolts, which can reduce tire pressure and lead to accidents.

Owners of several thousand Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles will need to work with a Tesla Service center following the announcement of a new recall. According to documents published with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration last week, Tesla has recalled 5,947 electric sedans and SUVs due to the potential for loose brake calipers.
These vehicles are delivered between 2019 and 2021, likely without the brake caliper bolts to the proper specs. Over time, loose bolts can cause the brake calipers to detach and come into contact with the wheel. If this happens, the tire can lose pressure, increasing the risk of a crash. Owners can hear unusual noises coming from their car if parts come apart and come into contact with the wheels.
Tesla will inspect each affected vehicle and a technician will make sure the bolts are properly tightened. If the car owner's car is missing bolts, the technician will add and re-screw the screws for free. If the inspection reveals damage, the company claims to tow the vehicle to the nearest facility for repair. The automaker did not say when it plans to notify owners of the recall, but expects an announcement in the next few weeks to address this potential issue.

In 2020, Tesla delivered 442,511 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles. The company said no accidents or injuries were reported because of bolt problems.

Meanwhile in the Chinese market, many accidents involving Tesla vehicles are reported by users as having a fault with the car's brake system. Some users have even installed cameras to prove quality problems in cars are due to manufacturer's fault. And yet, some shopping centers in China have refused to allow Tesla cars to park because this model often has brake problems.

When you use electricity to run your car, it's environmentally friendly. When you use electricity to run the most efficient financial networks in the world, it's an environmental concern," Changpeng Zhao said. write on Twitter.

Changpeng Zhao, CEO of cryptocurrency exchange platform Binance, took to Twitter to take a personal stance regarding recent criticisms of digital currency's energy use. And one of them seems to refer to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

"When you use electricity to run cars, it's environmentally friendly. When you use electricity to run the most efficient financial networks in the world, it's an environmental concern , " he said. Zhao tweeted.

The statement seems to allude to the recent announcement from Elon Musk that Tesla will no longer accept bitcoin payments to buy its electric cars, which is said to have sparked a wave of crypto sell-offs. CZ's tweet can be temporarily understood that the same systems use electricity, but there is no reason that the electricity used for new energy vehicles has the right to consider itself "cleaner" than the electricity used to operate the cryptocurrency network number.
Tesla has suspended car purchases with Bitcoin," a statement from Elon Musk's Twitter account not long ago. “We are concerned about the rapidly increasing use of fossil fuels to mine and trade bitcoin, especially coal, which has the worst emissions of any fuel.

Cryptocurrency is a good idea on many levels and we believe it has a promising future, but this cannot come with a hefty price tag on the environment.

Tesla will not sell any bitcoins and we plan to use it for transactions as soon as mining transitions to more sustainable energy. We are also looking at other cryptocurrencies that use 1% less energy than Bitcoin's transaction."
In fact, criticisms of bitcoin mining like the Elon Musks have existed for a long time. They are based on analyzes such as the Cambridge University statement showing that the bitcoin mining network uses more than 121 terawatt hours (TWh) per year, equivalent to 1 of the 30 largest electricity consuming countries in the world. Recently, it has been estimated that this industry uses a lot of energy for nearly the entire country of Argentina.

The 3 most famous Israeli virtual currency projects in 2017-2018 were accused of being scams, with a project that once invited Lionel Messi to cooperate with the media.

A lawsuit filed on May 25 by employees of an Israeli venture capital fund alleges that three of Israel's largest cryptocurrency ICOs in 2017 and 2018. Totally a scam.

Three ICOs launched by Sirin Labs, Stx Technologies Limited (Stox) and Leadcoin, have raised $250 million from investors around the world.

The plaintiffs allege that none of the three companies ever developed a product as they promised investors. Instead, the defendants blatantly appropriated investors' money for personal use.

An ICO is the first issuance of virtual currency, a form of fundraising used by blockchain startups. Investors will be presented with a short film about the startup, biographies of the founders, and a "white paper" explaining the technology and business plan in more detail. If impressed by the startup, they can purchase tokens in its initial virtual currency offering. These tokens typically allow access to the product, and if the product is successful, it is expected that the tokens will increase in value on secondary exchanges.
The $16.1 million lawsuit was filed by Roee Brocial and Eran Okashi, two former employees of the Singulariteam venture capital fund. Okashi served as an accountant for companies, while Broncial served as a personal assistant to Singulariteam's largest shareholder, Moshe Hogeg.

In subsequent statements, Hogeg denied the allegation and said the lawsuit was an attempt by disgruntled employees to blackmail him. Hogeg is an entrepreneur who has emerged since the early 2010s, famous for attracting famous investors into his startup projects, including Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, movie star Leonardo Dicaprio and Kazakh financier Kenges Rakishev. Hogeg is also the owner of the Beitar Jerusalem football team.

Hogeg has been sued several times by investors of various ventures who allege that he cheated them. In most cases, Hogeg settled with the plaintiffs, by signing non-disclosure agreements. And Hogeg is a 70% shareholder of Singulariteam, while the other defendants own a smaller number of shares in the fund.
According to the plaintiffs, the defendants founded a series of blockchain-based companies with virtually no real activity and the sole purpose of defrauding investors. The complaint focuses on three of Singulariteam's ventures: Sirin Labs, which raised $158 million in July 2017 for a line of secure smartphones called Finney, in a partnership with Fonxconn, Prices start at $999.

Stx Technologies Limited, raised $34 million in August 2017 for the "predictive marketplace" of current events and sports. Leadcoin, on the other hand, raised $50 million in March 2018 for a "decentralized lead-sharing network".

The Stox ICO has been confirmed by the famous American boxer Floyd Mayweather. On Instagram, Sirin Labs is promoted by soccer star Lionel Messi and supermodels like Irina Shayk and Sara Sampaio.
I am very happy to join Sirin Labs with the mission to make this technology more popular and friendly in the eyes of the public," the Barca star once shared on his personal Facebook page.

"Immediately after they raised money and sometimes while they were doing so, defendants gutted the companies and let them exist without any substantial activity, leaving investors with great damage," the lawsuit alleges.

The complaint alleges that Singulariteam's owners were attracted by the fact that the cryptocurrency is unregulated.

The plaintiffs have filed audio recordings of Steven Kruger, Singulariteam's legal counsel, which reveal how Moshe Hogeg stole investors' money. However, Kruger passed away recently from complications following an operation.

According to the plaintiffs, the defendants used the money they raised to buy expensive properties. They also allege that the defendants took approximately $21 million in Stox funds to invest in Telegram's ICO.

The plaintiffs also claim that they personally invested in the aforementioned ICOs and encouraged friends and family to do the same. But promises of roses never appeared. Even about a month after Sirin's ICO, the value of one of the tokens increased. But the plaintiffs were barred from doing so, while some defendants sold their share.

The value of virtual currencies from the 3 projects above is extremely low, at the present time.

Just mining Dogecoin and having hot water to use, the idea is not too bad but does anyone need it.

When there are more and more signs that the Dogecoin bubble is about to burst, its crazy fan, billionaire Elon Musk decided to help. But not with a shout-out, but with an idea that seems so great to the CEO of Tesla when it will bring a practical application to this meme coin.

This great idea is to take advantage of the heat generated during Dogecoin mining to make a hot tub and more importantly, Mr. Musk himself is very excited about it. The idea comes at a time of growing concern about the environmental impacts of energy use when mining cryptocurrencies.
It was Musk who evoked this concern by saying that the negative environmental impacts of Bitcoin mining was the reason why Tesla stopped accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment for car purchases. Musk's statement set off a series of measures to tighten crypto mining operations in China and Iran that followed. Most recently, Iran banned Bitcoin mining in this country for 4 months because of frequent power outages in this country.

The idea of the hot water tank was mentioned in the tweet of the crypto exchange Blockfolio: " Hot tub heated by mining Dogecoin. Elon Musk, I don't know how, but let's go it came true ." Beneath Mr. Musk responded with a terse response: " Great idea ."

It may sound odd, but this isn't the first time Musk has tried to find a real-life application for Dogecoin, the meme coin that was created as a joke. Earlier this month, Mr. Musk also announced a satellite launch program to be paid for in this Dogecoin.

" This mission will demonstrate the applicability of cryptocurrencies beyond Earth's orbit and form the basis for interplanetary commerce ." SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Business Tom Ochinero said in his statement.
Even though the cryptocurrency market is seeing the biggest increase in recent years and is gaining popularity in every corner of the world. However, power concerns for cryptocurrency mining are becoming more and more ominous. But Mr. Musk has tried to defend this favorite cryptocurrency publicly, saying that its energy efficiency is much better than other cryptocurrencies.

On another occasion, Musk also revealed that he is working with Dogecoin developers to improve its energy efficiency.

The new trick of fraudulent apps on the App Store is forcing users to rate the app in favor of it before it can be used. Otherwise they will be stuck at the pop-up screen.

A new App Store scam has been revealed by developer Kosta Eleftheriou. A new scam has been discovered on the UPNP Xtreme app, which requires at least a 3-star rating to work and be allowed to use.
UPNP Xtreme is an application that allows to stream content to TV from their iPhone and iPad. However, this app will prompt for App Store rating as soon as you enable it for the first time. But it won't work until you leave a review. Accordingly, this application requires you to have a minimum rating of 3 stars to use. However, this app has now been removed from the App Store.

Requiring an app review at launch and not allowing users to dismiss pop-ups is a violation of the App Store guidelines.

Kosta also shared a video on its Twitter account showing that the app won't work if you don't give it a good review.
Kosta says the app had over 15 million downloads before it was removed from the App Store, and has made quite a bit of money.
FlickType keyboard developer Kosta Eleftheriou has been declaring war on Apple for quite some time.

The incident happened when the owner of a copy of the FlickType keyboard app took over the original app due to fake reviews and ratings. Eleftheriou has since sued Apple for flaws in the App Store and accused his apps of being sold for cheap.

Eleftheriou has since repeatedly reported scams on the App Store through its Twitter account.

In the past, Eleftheriou has reported a VPN scam app stealing $5 million/year from Apple users. Additionally, he also revealed an app scam that turns it into an online casino, as soon as you connect to a Turkish server.

News on the evening of May 31st, Beijing time, according to reports, nowadays cars are slowly becoming less dependent on hardware, and more dependent on software. The impact of this shift on the automotive industry is no less than any other trend, including vehicle electrification and autonomous driving. For this reason, investors in the automotive field should begin to pay more attention to software.
If this "software-defined car" trend is difficult to understand, just look at your mobile phone. In the past, mobile phones have always been about hardware until the birth of the iPhone. New applications (App) and operating systems make mobile phones better and better.

At present, the car is still in the "flip phone" stage, but this situation is changing. Tesla pioneered the "over-the-air update", and now more automakers are doing the same, connecting their cars to the Internet.

Last week, Ford Motor Week announced a plan to improve the effective running time and efficiency of commercial fleets and reduce the cost of vehicles by fully utilizing the intelligent network technology from vehicles to the cloud. Investors are very optimistic about the news. Ford's stock price has risen 9% in the past week, while the Standard & Poor's 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average both rose about 1%.

Essentially, Tesla is removing sensors from cars and relying more on software. In contrast, traditional car manufacturers are also adding software, but they are not inclined to remove sensors and hardware.

This transformation is also accompanied by "growth troubles." Last week, Tesla's Model 3 electric car lost its Best Choice rating from Consumer Reports. Mainly because of its safety features and Tesla's decision to use only optical cameras when "other carmakers use radars and cameras."

Tesla is unlikely to go back on this decision. In fact, more automakers may adopt a similar approach to Tesla. The transition to "more software-centric cars" will have many impacts on how cars are designed and sold.

Kevin Clark, CEO of Tesla's power electronics component supplier Aptiv, said: “Tesla has not really focused on models for a long time. Tesla can increase power output through software and increase the range of electric vehicles. This can be achieved through software, as is the enhancement of in-car entertainment functions.

Obviously, this approach has produced tangible benefits. Tesla's gross profit margin is higher than that of BMW, although its scale is only 30% of BMW's. Clark said that the "software-defined car" trend is still in its infancy and there is still a long way to go.
