Dot Com Bubble and Reddit GME - What's the Difference?

Previously, we discussed what Reddit’s WallStreetBets were up to and where they might turn next. At first, many thought it would be the silver price because of previous discussions happening on the subforum. However, the CME Group increased its maintenance margins on Comex 5000 Silver Futures by about 18%, spiking the silver price. It fell the next day, proving that Reddit had little to nothing to do with this. Although the GameStop short squeeze seems to have blown over, retail investors continue to hold their stocks—partly owing to Robinhood and other brokers limiting the trade on GME last week. They have since been issued a class-action lawsuit, and face hearings this week. Because GameStop shares fell more than 50% after the frenzy, many are drawing comparisons to the Dot Com Bubble burst of 2000. But what exactly happened back then might not repeat in this case.

In fact, this massive social investing in GameStop, AMC, Nokia, and Blackberry might actually change everything.

About

Alpha Bullion is an innovative service for redeeming PAX Gold tokens for real, physical gold. Each token acts as proof of ownership for 1 oz of gold stored at no additional cost in bar form in some of the most secure vaults in London. This provides all the stability benefits offered by precious metals without the burden of storage or shipping. It also allows for a market first feature, as the potential for cryptocurrency loans using PAX Gold would allow customers to essentially earn dividends on precious metals. This unique bridge between the ancient and the innovative has already drawn attention from press such as Coindesk and Jim Cramer of Mad Money.
