WallStreetBets has become a brand name and has now launched its one trading platform app on the blockchain WSBDApp.
If 2020 showed us anything, it was that resilience and coming together could get us through anything. During this difficult time, a revolution was born in the retail trading community, effectively bringing in millions of users that had never traded before to enjoy new opportunities. An army of people came together through the Reddit forum, WallStreetBets, and the concept of retail trading was deeply fomented.
Millions of people that had never traded before got together, to share ideas and push up stocks, and even managed to bring the institutions to their knees, those same institutions that had shorted stocks learned a very valuable lesson.
At that time, WallStreetBets became a kind of home for the underdog, as it successfully lifted the barriers to new traders, who all joined the same playing field. Since then, WallStreetBets has become a brand name and has now launched its one trading platform app on the blockchain WSBDApp.
