Did Barry Silbert and Max Keiser foresee this?

On Thursday, when popular trading app Robinhood and several other trading platforms restricted trading of trending GameStop shares (cutting it down to selling only), the crypto community became outraged by these actions against retail investors.

Financial institutions were still allowed to both buy and sell.

Such influencers as David Portnoy, Anthony Pompliano, Max Keiser and DCG founder Barry Silbert commented on that.

Keiser and Silbert opined that now that the flow of funds was rejected, funds would rush into Bitcoin and crypto in general as these are the only markets that cannot be shut down and are truly decentralized.
