People are worried about Chinese companies ripping investors off and a social media bubble? They should be more worried about German 3D printing companies.
When I heard that VJET is doing an IPO at the NYSE I asked myself "Why would a German company seek capital in the US if it is not even listed in Germany?!" (major red flag) Last time I checked Germany has perfectly fine capital markets. It's not like this company is from Peru and can't rely on domestic sources of capital. The reason to come to the US and the timing of the deal should be clear. It offers insiders a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to benefit from the hype around this industry and its more legitimate players.
Today I came around the Citron research report and saw the numbers, which turned out to be even more horrifying than expected. 5 million revenue. 5 million. A comany that was valued at a couple hundred million after the IPO and almost one billion(!) a couple days ago.

I sincerely congratulate the insiders and the investment bankers who came up with this idea (I probably would have done the same thing) that once again prooved that you can always find some idiots to sell them anything. You only need to get right story and the timing.

short sellers saw a good opportunity to make a killing by complaining about the valuation of vjet. they could have made such a prediction weeks and even months ago. this was strictly an opportunistic play and they can do the same with any high flying stock.
