Twitch Users Are Playing the Stock Market With $50K of One Dude’s Money

StockStream is touting itself as the “world’s first cooperative multiplayer stock market.” It’s the brainchild of a man who only wants to be identified as Mike. Mike tells PC Gamer that he’s using an app called Robinhood to feed the real-time graphs and make the trades. The beauty of Robinhood is that it allows him to make trades for free. That’s pretty crucial because he’s already making a lot of trades. The way his automated system works is Twitch users comment what stock they want him to buy or sell and at the end of a five minute round, it tallies up the votes and makes the most popular trade. – Rhett Jones, Gizmodo http://gizmo.do/RfY2Jpc
