MicroStrategy co-founder Michael Saylor faces charges of evading United States income taxes he allegedly incurred while living in Washington, DC.

Crypto.com backs out of $495M sponsorship deal with UEFA Champions League: Report

Crypto.com has decided not to go through with a $495 million sponsorship agreement in response to possible regulatory issues.

Crypto.com already has several high-profile advertising efforts under its belt, such as a commercial starring American actor Matt Damon.
