The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado on behalf of all those who purchased Riot Blockchain securities between October 4, 2017 and February 15, 2018 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Greenawalt v. Riot Blockchain, Inc. et al, No. 18-cv-00440 was filed on February 22, 2018.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose the correct address of the Company’s principle offices.

Specifically, on February 16, 2018, CNBC published an article titled “CNBC investigates public company that changed its name to Riot Blockchain and saw its shares rocket” detailing the Company’s sudden adjournment of its annual shareholder meeting, claiming that the Company’s true location is in Florida instead of Colorado, and exploring the connections between O’Rourke and a principal investor, Barry Honig.

After the article was published, Riot Blockchain’s share price fell from $17.20 per share on February 15, 2018 to a closing price of $11.46 on February 16, 2018 —a $5.74 or a 33.37% drop.
