Robinhood is down again with two straight days of outages. Could be due to Leap Year error
Yesterday, we wrote about Robinhood when the stock app popular among millennials, crashed and missed the entire day of trading on Monday. Now, Robinhood is down again for the second straight day.
One Twitter user thinks the outage may be due to Robinhood not properly calculating the leap year. Robinhood’s server date is set to March 4, 2020 instead of the correct date of March 3, 2020.
