Robinhood raises $2.4 billion over weekend after GameStop fury

The day trading app pulled in $2.4 billion from investors over the weekend, its chief financial officer said in a blog post Monday.

Robinhood received harsh criticism last week after blocking users from purchasing stocks from Gamestop, AMC and Blackberry, companies which were targeted by the Reddit subforum r/WallStreetBets.

The app’s executives have blamed the pause on needing to put more money into its clearinghouse, a problem this funding round should resolve.
