WEEK STARTING 13 JULY


AUSTRALIAN FINTECH & STARTUPS

Kiwi BNPL 'LayBuy' is looking to float on the ASX. Link

Afterpay will soon be available on Apple Pay and Google Pay in the US. Link

Zip reveals record quarterly revenue. Link

Tidbit on 'Up': I finally took the plunge this week and moved my everyday banking to neobank 'Up'. So far it has been an absolutely awesome experience. I'd been a customer for a while but had to jump ship after seeing how many features were being pumped out by their team. Bill reminders, unlimited saver accounts (with a base + bonus rate of 1.60%), Apple Pay, no fees and incredible customer support. If you want to give it a crack, I highly recommend it (even if you want to test it out with $50 to get a feel for the app's UX). If you want to sign up and give it a go, head here. You won't regret it.

BIG TECH

Tesla’s shareprice skyrocketed earlier this week with ~10k day traders pouring in per hour. Link


There was a massive twitter hack whereby verified accounts (Obama, Elon Musk, Warren Buffet, Joe Biden, Bloomberg and more and more..) were taken over by a Bitcoin scam. Link

Analysis: Who's behind the Twitter hack (allegedly a 21y.o. from London). Link
