The CEO of cryptocurrency exchange FTX has bought a 7.6% stake in Robinhood Markets, according to a filing with U.S. regulators on Thursday. Samuel Bankman-Fried said in the filing that he bought the shares thinking they were an attractive investment and that he doesn't currently have any plans to change or influence the control of Robinhood. Robinhood shot to fame for its easy-to-use trading app, which brought a new generation of investors to the stock market, perhaps most famously with the meme-stock frenzy that sent GameStop soaring early last year.
