GameStop (GME) Emerges from the Depths

The GameStop phenomenon began as a movement driven by retail investors on platforms like Reddit. Notably, there was a trader who effectively capitalized on the GameStop boom. This investor had placed a limit order that was triggered at the right moment, allowing them to sell 3.5 million GME for 260 SOL, which is approximately $43,000, at a price of $0.01226 per GME. Despite this sale, the trader still holds a substantial position of 108 million GME, valued at approximately $1.5 million. In total, the net profit from these transactions amounts to around $1.37 million.

Now, expectations continue to rise as the expiration date of Gill’s call options approaches, which could bring even more movements in the market.
