Welcome to Q4, crypto fans and Tesla stans

Hello and welcome back to Equity, a podcast about the business of startups, where we unpack the numbers and nuance behind the headlines.

Don’t forget that the code “EQUITY” can save you money on Disrupt tickets and TechCrunch+ access. And it makes us here on the show look good!

  • 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!
