Preston Byrne on GameStop, Online Mobs and Marmots

Preston Byrne is a partner in Anderson Homicide’s Skills, Media and Distributed Methods Neighborhood, and a CoinDesk columnist.

He joins CoinDesk Aspects Editor Ben Schiller to talk about his contemporary op-ed about GameStop, Robinhood and the upward thrust of online mobs.

Schiller spoke to Byrne about:

  • The upward thrust of online mobs from GameStop to Capitol Hill and how the net is impacting true lifestyles in an extra and extra tangible device
  • What policymakers can manufacture to forestall mobs doing injury to first charge firms
  • Why it’s probably the WallStreetBets Reddit contained some pump-and-dumpers
  • How the regulatory response to the WallStreetBets would perhaps perhaps impact cryptocurrencies
  • How the backlash from “elites” impacted by GameStop would perhaps perhaps pain free speech
  • Why Preston Byrne helps marmots (which would be love squirrels or groundhogs)
