    Yesterday, US President and orange man Donald Trump signed an executive order that says ByteDance (parent company of WeChat) and Tencent (parent company of TikTok) are now enemies of the state and a threat to national security. The order was vaguely worded but data collection and data mining have been tied to WeChat and TikTok – so in 45 days transactions related to either service and their parent companies will be prohibited! This implicates a lot of very big video games and publishers because TenCent owns, oh ya know, EVERYTHING. Epic and Fortnite come to mind immediately as well as Riot and League of Legends. Even video game website Fanbyte is owned by Tencent. So what does this all mean for our precious videogames? Well stick around and find out, right here on Inside Gaming Daily.

    TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.

    ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service on 2 August 2018.
