Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.
Markets: Stocks are largely down around the world, yet set to rise here on American exchanges. Perhaps the domestic sell-off is pausing? Elsewhere in the world of money, cryptocurrencies are boring in the last week.
Startups: Big news from TikTok, including notes on how quickly it has been adding revenue in Europe and the fact that the social network is forging ahead with a new social shopping effort in the United States. And, Talk360 added even more dosh to its recent funding round, which TechCrunch dug into here.
Quick Hits: Kim Kardashian is in trouble for crypto promotions past, to the tune of a seven-figure settlement. That's a lot of capital, frankly, and we're curious who will be next under the SEC's hammer. Oh, and Tesla delivery numbers are in, and the markets are not happy.
Don't Forget: Equity is kicking off Disrupt in just a few weeks. Come hang out!
Woot! We are out of here for now. Catch you soon!
