The boom in bitcoin – $ 1,000 at the start of the year to over $ 18,000 today – according to CoinMarketCap, propelled Coinbase to the heights of the US App Store.

The app, which trades and holds bitcoin, ether, and litecoin, dropped from rank 229 on November 8 to # 1 yesterday.

Since what now looks like a bitcoin rush, the platform has undergone a lot of technical ups and downs and seems to have difficulty absorbing its rise. Last night, the most famous cryptocurrency briefly exceeded $ 17,000, before leveling off, after various swings, at around $ 15,000.

In the endless stream of Uber news, the editorial staff of FrenchWeb is now seriously wondering about the advisability of perpetuating a section dedicated to the private driver’s platform within the Confidential – and which would therefore be called Radio Uber, as you can imagine.

Yesterday evening, Uber’s France director Steve Salom was the guest of France Info’s L’Interview éco. We strongly recommend this listening, where the hot topics are broached by the journalist Jean Leymarie: regulations, social situation of drivers… but also hacking of personal data, towards the end of the intervention. We admit to being a little confused and banned by the convoluted, even smoky, response of the representative of the company to a simple question from Jean Leymarie: “Have Uber customers in France been affected by the data breach of 57 million Uber users?” “

To date, Direct is available on Android and iOs in six markets: Chile, Portugal, Turkey, Uruguay, Israel and Italy.

We fell in love with a creative and original campaign at Orange to promote the reliability of the 4G network other than through the somewhat arid rankings of ARCEP or consumer associations: the series “Inthe… with”, launched in July 2016, is a concept based on three fundamentals: an unusual place, an artist, a live concert.

Channel Tunnel, concert at an altitude of 1500 meters in the heart of the Alps or in Hossegor with your feet in the water, or even from a boat sailing in the Mediterranean for a live by Joyce Jonathan… The program tests multiple configurations to demonstrate the robustness of its service in the service of new uses.

After #InTheTunnelWith, #InTheAlpsWith, #InTheAtlanticWith (50,000 views during the live), #InTheSeaWith (100,000 live views), the fifth episode, named #IntheRiver, will welcome Cocoon on December 14 for an interview and a live broadcast from the Pont du Gard.
