The firm said it is facing at least four potential class-action lawsuits over it disclosures about the fees it receives from other firms.

That source of revenue — called payment for order flow — drew the attention of angry users after Robinhood curbed trading last month in GameStop and other stocks that got caught up in a retail-trading frenzy that briefly sent the video-game retailers shares soaring.

What they did was fucking criminal. They had no problem at all selling shit tons of what they thought was worthless stock. Once they found out what was happening they locked the shit down to save their own asses.

They should be in prison for that shit.

That's about the sum of it. Everybody was trying to game the system, but the big issue was that once the little guys got the upper hand, the big guys confiscated everybody's dice and everybody had to play the game using only theirs.
