Oncesurging crypto stocks face delisting Is bitcoin mania over

first_imgLongfin said it received a Nasdaq delisting notice because it didn’t file its quarterly report on time The company said Tuesday that it’s being suspended by Nasdaq on April 12 pursuant to a rule that gives the exchange operator the power to boot firms with histories of misconduct The agency had also been investigating the New York-based company’s acquisition of Ziddu.com As for Long Blockchain, Nasdaq had threatened to delist it in October — before the name change — because its market value was too low A visual representation of the digital cryptocurrency Bitcoin.JACK GUEZ/AFP/Getty ImagesLike many other obscure companies, Long Blockchain Corp and Longfin Corp changed their names last year to orient themselves toward the cryptocurrency or blockchain business, realizing nomenclature was a viable way to add shareholder value.That was the time when bitcoin prices skyrocketed by 1,700 percent.
