Quick Glance: TikTok Sues US Government Over Ban Threat
  • TikTok and its Chinese parent company filed a lawsuit against a new American law that threatens to ban the popular video-sharing app in the U.S. unless sold to an approved buyer.

  • The law, signed by President Joe Biden, targets a social media company for a potential ban, a move criticized by free speech advocates.

  • ByteDance, TikTok's parent company, argues that shutting down by January 19 next year is the only option due to operational challenges in continuing to run under the new law.

  • The lawsuit emphasizes the technical impossibility of ByteDance divesting TikTok to a U.S. buyer, as it would require separating all lines of software code to avoid any operational relationship.

Quick Glance: Binance founder sentenced to 4 months in prison
  • Changpeng Zhao, founder of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, was sentenced to four months in prison for allowing criminals to use the platform for illicit financial activities.

  • Despite Zhao admitting his failure and expressing regret, the judge was concerned about his disregard for U.S. banking regulations that could have slowed the company's growth.

  • The sentence, including a $50 million fine, was much shorter than what the Justice Department sought, making Zhao the first person to be imprisoned for such violations of the Bank Secrecy Act.

  • Prosecutors argued that Zhao's actions rendered the law toothless and urged Congress to increase penalties for violations that allow illicit financial flows through the U.S. system.
