Robinhood says recent outages were caused by an “unprecedented load” on its system, will waive Gold customers’ fee for 3 months, ~$15, as initial compensation  —  It wasn’t the leap year, a coding blip, or a hack that caused Robinhood’s massive outages yesterday and today that left customers unable to trade stocks.
