GME and r/WSB going ham destroying Melvin Capital and Citron Research. But after the huge spike, Robinhood telling every retail investor that they can no longer buy GME stocks, driving the price from 300 dollars to around 140 dollars a share. More like mArKEt mAnIpUlaTioN.
What it does
We wanted to create a better Robinhood app that no longer democratizes the ability for any person to buy and sell stocks. This app provides insane leverage to hedge funds by allowing them to control the prices of any stock. For the retail investor, they will still be able to invest in companies, but only the "Stock of the Day", which is basically a random company we select. Hopefully you land on one that you like!
In addition, if you somehow end up landing the "Stock of the Day" on GME, then the buy button is basically blocked. :)
Have fun trading!
How we built it
- We used react-native to create a web application (lol)
Persisting data into a text file (lol)
alphaVantage for stock API
Challenges we ran into
Firebase, Env variables, Graph components
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the WSB community on Reddit for giving us this opportunity.
What we learned
Robinhood bad. Robinh00d good.
What's next for Robinh00d
If we somehow win the Joke Submission, we might talk to some investors and see if they are interested to get on board.
