Robinhood traders slammed the investing app after its cryptocurrency platform suffered a major outage right in the middle of Dogecoin’s record-setting rally.
Robinhood said its crypto trading service started going haywire by 10 p.m. Thursday — just as the price of the meme-inspired currency started spiking.
The disruption enraged Robinhood users who accused the startup on social media of intentionally blocking them from cashing in on the Dogecoin surge that’s seen the cult coin’s price roughly quadruple over five days.
“How convenient. Robinhood always has ‘issues’ when their customers are making money,” one person said Thursday on Twitter, where Robinhood was a trending topic early Friday.
