Today, the TikTok CEO will appear before Congress on Capitol Hill, making news. (March 23).
He wants to reassure senators that the app is safe amid fears and cries to ban the video network on American devices.
Shou posted a video this week thanking American TikTok fans and announcing his Washington DC speech.
Shou’s net worth has never been officially announced and is unknown in 2023, but it’s certainly going to be in the multi-millions.
Although unsubstantiated, some sites have valued the TikTok chief at $200 million.
TikTok, one of the world's largest firms, has over one billion daily active users, so his net worth will be high.
He never discovered TikTok. Forbes reports that Bytedance founder Zhang Yiming is worth $45 billion.
In 2021, Bloomberg valued ByteDance at $250 billion, which is expected to be substantially higher two years on.
He then said he would appear before Congress about TikTok's efforts to "protect Americans using the app".
