TikTok becomes most visited website, surpassing Google


The Chinese platform has gained six places in just one year, surpassing all services linked to Google.

With one billion monthly active users, TikTok is reaching a new milestone. The application of short videos overtakes Google and thus becomes the most visited website in the world in 2021, according to the ranking of the American company Cloudflare.

In other words, TikTok generates more traffic on its site than all of Google’s services combined: search engine, mapping, translation, news or photos. This is the first time that the ByteDance firm has climbed to the top of the charts.

After TikTok and Google, Facebook occupies the last place on the podium. Next are Microsoft, Apple , Amazon , Netflix , YouTube , Twitter and WhatsApp . This latest messaging app throws Instagram out of the Top 10, yet ninth in 2020. Compared to last year, Netflix has lost two places while Twitter has gained one. But this comparison should be taken with caution because the 2020 ranking began in September, so Cloudflare only analyzed the last four months of the year.

It’s official: China is now the richest country in the world

China has just overtaken the United States in the ranking of the richest countries on the planet, according to a report, now settling in first place.

China has just overtaken the United States in the ranking of the richest countries on the planet, according to a report, now settling in first place. The country’s value would have increased from $ 7 trillion in 2000 to over $ 120 trillion in 2020.

China goes ahead

The world has gotten much richer over the past two decades (net worth has tripled), but the distribution of wealth has shifted. Long behind the United States, China has just overtaken its main rival as the richest nation in the world. These are the two main lessons of a new report from the research arm of McKinsey & Co consultants, relayed by Bloomberg . For this work, the experts examined the national balance sheets of ten countries representing more than 60% of world income.

In detail, global net worth has grown from $ 156 trillion in 2000 to $ 514 trillion in 2020 , according to the report. China accounted for nearly a third of this development. The country’s wealth would thus have climbed from $ 7 trillion in 2000 to $ 120 trillion in 2020 . Its membership in the World Trade Organization in 2001 would obviously have accelerated this meteoric economic rise.

The United States, for its part, saw its net worth more than double over the period to reach $ 90 trillion in 2020. It should also be noted that in both the United States and China, more than two-thirds of wealth are owned by the richest 10% of households, and their share continues to increase.

According to the report, around 68% of that global net worth is stored in real estate. This sector includes machinery, infrastructure and equipment.

China widens the innovation gap

It should also be recalled that in 2019, China had overtaken the United States in the field of international patents with a thousand filings in advance. However, these applications filed through the WIPO Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) are one of the key indicators for measuring the various activities related to innovation.

In 2020, the Middle Kingdom retained its first place with 68,720 patents filed (+ 16% compared to 2019), ahead of the United States with its 59,230 filings (+ 3%). In other words, China remains in the lead, but also widens the gap on its direct competitor. Next come Japan, South Korea and Germany.

Finland
For the fourth year in a row, Finland has been named the happiest country in the world.

For the fourth year in a row, Finland has been named the « happiest country in the world », according to a report released on Friday.

And yet 2020 has been a year full of challenges, with the coronavirus pandemic claiming over two million lives and crippling much of the planet.

In this context, one of the biggest challenges was mental health, as millions of people lost a loved one, their job or had to experience the loneliness of isolation.

The World Happiness Report, released by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network initiative, notes that Finland has been one of the countries that has adapted best to the challenges of the coronavirus.

Denmark is placed in second place, followed by Switzerland, Iceland and the Netherlands.

This report evaluated data from inhabitants of 149 countries.

Carried out every year for 2 decades, it considers six indicators to assess the happiness of nations on a scale of 0 to 10.

Per capita income, social protection, health and life expectancy, social freedom, generosity and the absence of corruption are compared.

Elon Musk is already no longer the richest man in the world

Elon Musk is already no longer the richest man in the world

Tesla boss is ironed behind Jeff Bezos, but it might not last

Last weekend, Elon Musk touched the stars by becoming the richest man in the world  with a fortune then estimated at 188.5 billion dollars. But here he is already back on the second step of the podium while Tesla’s stock price dropped slightly on Monday. An 8% drop in value which saw the entrepreneur’s portfolio shrink by $ 13.5 billion.

Therefore, Jeff Bezos  recovered his first place. However, the gap between the boss of Amazon, dethroned for the first time since 2017, and Elon Musk is slim. Indeed, Jeff Bezos exceeds his main competitor by only a trifle of $ 6 billion while the shares of the e-commerce giant also experienced a slight decline at the start of the week. In fact, the scales could tip again in the side of the boss of Tesla in a short time.

Tight podium

If Elon Musk saw his fortune explode in 2020 – an additional $ 150 billion since March according to Forbes , it is obviously thanks to the stock market success of Tesla and SpaceX.

The value of the self-driving car company has jumped 720% in the space of a year and is now worth more than Facebook . Stratospheric figures which recently led the board of directors of the firm to offer its founder a few million additional shares whose cumulative value exceeds $ 6 billion if we rely on last Monday’s prices. An operation which, if it has yet to be validated by the financial authorities, could allow Elon Musk to return to Jeff Bezos.

How did Elon Musk become the richest man in the world?

The boss of Tesla has just dethroned Jeff Bezos, the creator of Amazon, thanks to the soaring price of the stock market.

He had gradually climbed the stairs, then joined the top 3 of the greatest fortunes in the world in September 2020. The year 2021 looks promising for Elon Musk who has become  the richest man in the world , according to the Bloomberg agency which maintains a ranking of billionaires.

Amazon boss Jeff Bezos is no longer number 1 . The one who holds the title of the richest man on the planet since 2017, ahead of Bill Gates (Microsoft), Bernard Arnault (LVMH) and Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), has just been caught by the whimsical entrepreneur of 49 years, Elon Musk.

This meteoric rise is explained by the surge in Tesla securities on  Wall Street , in which Elon Musk holds an 18% stake . Tesla stock has seen its value more than 7-fold in 2020. This then allows  Elon Musk  to hold a fortune of 188.5 billion dollars . That of the creator of Amazon, it amounts to 1.5 billion.
Remarkably, Elon Musk refuses his minimum wage of $ 56,000 each year at Tesla. In January 2018, the company announced that it would pay Elon Musk nothing for the next ten years: no salary, no bonus, no shares. 

Rich even richer despite the crisis

The coronavirus pandemic is an economic disaster for most Americans , but not for Elon Musk. Many  billionaires  got richer during the pandemic, but no one earned as much as him. The CEO of Telsa earned more than $ 48 billion between March 18 and August 13, 2020, an increase in his fortune of more than 197% , according to a new analysis by the think tank, the Institute for Policy Studies .

But that’s not all, Elon Musk’s wealth should continue to grow in the months to come. And, thank you  Joe Biden  ? Stock market action has been boosted by the election of Joe Biden, who promises to promote the development of electric vehicles  in the United States. The group’s stock is expected to be included in many financial products systematically, which should give Elon Musk even more weight.
