Why is using Robinhood to buy/sell crypto so frown upon by the crypto community?

I’m new to cryptocurrency and admittedly don’t know jack squat about it. I bought some bitcoin and ethereum on Robinhood simply because it has no fees and Ive been able to make $200 off ethereum as it rises and lowers in price, and using robinhood lets me buy and sell without paying fees which I can’t do on coinbase, I would end up with less money on coinbase if I did that. 

I just wish robinhood had other cryptos as I hear some of the altcoins are set to explode in value.

    Robinhood has been busted by the SEC for manipulating prices on their platform. Your free trades are suddenly not so free.
