Even the moderators of WallStreetBets can’t hold back the rising Bitcoin crypto wave any longer.

The freewheeling web forum will start allowing discussion of Bitcoin, Ether and Dogecoin in a daily Crypto discussion thread, according to a post from moderator “bawse1” on the site. The group has a “No Cryptocurrency” rule forbidding posts devoted solely to digital tokens like Bitcoin and their underlying technology, and that still stands elsewhere in the forum.
