  • A Robinhood spokeswoman declined to comment to Bloomberg and to CoinDesk.
  • The potential crypto wallet was discovered by software developer Steve Moser, who also discovered the code in Twitter’s beta about accepting bitcoin for its “Tip Jar” feature.
  • Robinhood announced in February it would enable withdrawals and deposits of cryptocurrencies, including dogecoin.
