Trader Top 9: ConstitutionDAO Loses, Su Zhu ETH Spat, and Robinhood Wallets

7. Last Thursday saw a highly anticipated Sotheby's auction of a rare copy of the US Constitution. Unfortunately, a DAO set up for the purpose of purchasing this historical founding document was ultimately outbid by none other than Ken Griffin of Citadel. Small investors in the DAO might be shocked to learn about the impact of high gas fees.
