/r/wallstreetbets - What happened?

Professional IT Consultant and internet skeptic Jaime Rogozinski has been grabbing the headlines in recent weeks, as the founder of the infamous Reddit thread ‘/r/wallstreetbets’.

The thread was created in 2012, as a way to make some extra money on top of his main job. But the influence of this channel has only been felt recently, as millions of people have been investing in stocks promoted by the wallstreetbets community. One wonders where these hordes of followers came from and how they banded together to cause such a panic on Wall Street.

The channel had gently built a bigger following over the years. Then, 2020 hit and the pandemic saw large numbers of people seek out other ways to make money. The “YOLO” attitude towards trading, which made the whole thing feel more like gambling, was particularly appealing to the public and it appealed to followers so much that the thread grew to 1 million in March 2020. This number skyrocketed to 4 million amid the GameStop frenzy earlier this year and actually managed to exceed the population of New York City, with over 8.4 million followers.

This army of self-titled ‘degenerates’ was so involved that they created their own language to communicate using acronyms and unique slang. Here is a taste of the wallstreetbets culture and to give you some insight into what this Reddit world is all about.
