Robinhood warns trading frenzy is slowing as it seeks $35 billion IPO valuation

Nevertheless, Robinhood also also signaled it expects to report a slowdown in trading revenue and new clients — “particularly in cryptocurrencies” according to the filing — in the current quarter versus the quarter ended June 30, when demand was “exceptionally strong.”
