Robinhood Markets L.L.C., maker of the eponymous stock trading app, has confidentially filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for an initial public offering, according to Bloomberg.

  • The millennial-friendly investing platform and popular cryptocurrency on-ramp has not yet confirmed its plans (which could change) but the gears are moving toward a public debut, insiders told Bloomberg Tuesday.
  • After a rocketing 12 months of pandemic-fueled retail trader growth and its recent drubbing in the press and in Congress over the GameStop fallout Robinhood plans pursue a listing on tech-heavy Nasdaq, giving its investors a long-awaited chance to cash in.
  • Robinhood did not immediately respond to CoinDesk queries.
