Robinhood explained in its IPO filing that Dogecoin accounted for 34% of its cryptocurrency transaction-based revenue in Q1 2021, up from 30% in Q4 2020. Elon Musk celebrated the news with a new tweet, where he said "Release the Doge!" with a meme of the Godfather saying "You come to me at runtime. You tell me the code you are executing does not compile".

The IPO reveals that Robinhood has close to 18 million monthly active users, around $80 billion in assets under its management -- and that it bled out $1.5 billion in Q1 2021. So that $70 million fine yesterday... a drop in the bucket for Robinhood.

The company said that it wants to continue "maintaining strong relationships with our loyal customer base and earning our customers' trust when they choose our platform on their financial journeys".
