American investors are trying to buy the social network TikTok, developed by the Chinese company ByteDance. This is reported by the Financial Times, citing sources.
It is noted that plans to buy the app from the Chinese owner began to be implemented against the background of its possible ban in the United States. In addition, private equity firms from new York and technology firms from Silicon valley have expressed interest in a possible deal.
At the moment, it is not known what price investors are ready to offer. It is noted that the app is not considered profitable, despite a large audience in India and the West.
Earlier, Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the US is thinking about blocking the Chinese app TikTok. The campaign headquarters of US President Donald Trump accused the social network of surveillance.
