We have yet to confirm if everyone on this project is ok, and are also immediately wondering who was thirsty enough to ask for this story so quickly, if at all, because I certainly didn't.
For those who still have no idea what the recent GameStop stock news is all about, it's ok, and you're certainly not alone. (We've got a pretty meaty explainer on it, if you're ready to dive in). But in the simplest terms, a bunch of Redditors from r/WallStreetBets decided to buy stock in the video retailer GameStop, and in doing so forced up the prices of the stock and the value of the feeble company (it's now worth over $10 billion). It freaked out a lot of fancy Wall Street traders because it basically revealed the power of the common, sweatsuit-clad collective, and also made more people question whether the stock market is actually kind of fake, in the end. (Seems like it.)
