Not much counterculture I can see. It's a new reflection of boiler room schemes and gold bug hoarders.
Get rich schemes aren't new. And even "fintech" like Robinhood aren't new either, just a new face on trying to make money off other people's money. They're as revolutionary as Charles Schwab, E-Trade or SPDRs. Securitization of assets or IOs/POs (for mortgages) have been much more impactful than any of this.
