Despite the Riot Blockchain class action complaint, there has been little effect on the stock price. At least, not today it hasn’t.
Yesterday, Robbins Arroyo LLP, a shareholders rights law firm, reminded the public that Riot purchasers filed a class action complaint against the company.
Riot Blockchain Class Action Complaint: Stock in the Clear
Based in Colorado, Riot Blockchain is a company that builds and supports blockchain technology. This month, we have seen the company release its June 2018 crypto mining production yield. There, the company announced that it produced around 117 Bitcoins last month, as well as roughly 290 Litecoins.
Then more news came last week: Riot will be partaking in Oppenheimer’s 21st Annual Technology Internet & Communications Conference Blockchain panel. This conference will take place in August, on the afternoon of the 7th, in Boston, Massachusetts.
Despite this, the company has made its fair share of questionable decisions. And since those decisions became public, the stock has fallen roughly 73%, closing yesterday at $4.58.
Regardless, the stock found its way into the green zone today and even became one of Yahoo Finance’s trending tickers of the day. All of this occurring 24 hours after Robbins Arroyo LLP reminded the public of the Riot Blockchain class action complaint.
