WallStreetBets’ drama is reaching crescendo – Bitcoin is fixing that problem. Elon seems to agree!

Crypto at a glance

It’s been a wild week in the markets, but just when you think it can’t get any wilder, in Elon Musk and a $ 6,000 pump in just over an hour. The US isn’t even awake – are we just getting started today?

How did we get here? This week’s big story was the WallStreetBets drama, which seemed to hit a crescendo yesterday when brokers like Robinhood and Webull decided to stop trading GameStop, AMC, and other stocks involved in the big Reddit Short Squeeze. The backlash has been swift and vicious across the political spectrum as well as in society, with many quickly blaming these investment vehicles, designed to enable the average Joe to trade, of running hedge funds and calling them evidence of a rigged system.

Whatever their reasoning, it was an excellent advertisement for cryptocurrency and decentralization. This is one of the rare situations Bitcoin actually fixes this.

Enter Friday morning that started with big climbs across the board. Bitcoin is up nearly $ 6,000 in just over an hour – possibly the fastest jump in its history. Is this rapid rise part of the Robinhood backlash? Does it all stem from Elon Musk’s decision to make his Twitter bio just “Bitcoin”? Will any coins mimic Dogenes’ ridiculous 200% profit in the last hour? It’s 2021, anything could happen. Hold on to your hats and, more importantly, hold on to your wallets – research your investments and don’t make rash decisions no matter how much excitement is in the air.
