If the ongoing Republican-led audit of the 2020 election seems like a joke, well, "The Daily Show" agrees.  Host Trevor Noah spent a few minutes ridiculing the process on the show on Thursday night. It really was one of those jokes-write-themselves kind of things. "Now, you might think it's crazy to have election conspiracy theorists in charge of an election audit," Noah said. "But to me, this makes perfect sense. Because don't forget, this is the third audit they've done in Arizona.

The most advanced examples are AliPay and WeChat Pay in China. Ant Group, the financial offspring of Alibaba, was born out of the fact that shoppers flocking to Alibaba lacked a safe payment method.

This means of payment proliferated, supercharging Alipay’s growth. It has more than 1bn active users
