#86 - Jaime Rogozinski - Founder of WSB (WallStreetBets)
This week I’m delighted to introduce Jaime Rogozinsk, Founder of the notorious WSB subreddit, you’ll all know them from the infamous GameStop short squeeze. A moment that will go down in history alongside the rise of the retail trader and the power of communities. Jaime founded WSB, a movement for financial democracy, in 2012. The community currently stands at approx 11 million strong.
In this interview, we discuss why Jaime founded WSB, how the GameStop story unfolded, the power of communities, NFTs. We also cover a number of innovative Defi features from the new WSB decentralized app such as high-yield liquidity pools and exchange-traded portfolios.
