(“Bit Digital” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:BTBT) from December 21, 2020 through January 8, 2021 (the “Class Period”).

The complaint alleges that the Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Bit Digital overstated the extent of its bitcoin mining operation; (2) as a result, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
On January 11, 2021, J Capital Research issued a research report alleging, among other things, that Bit Digital operates “a fake crypto currency business” “designed to deal funds from investors.” While the Company claims “it was operating 22,869 bitcoin miners in China,” J Capital’s report alleged that “is simply not possible” and stated that “[w]e verified with local governments supposedly hosting the BTBT mining operation that there are no bitcoin miners there.”
On this news, the Bit Digital’s stock price fell $6.27, or approximately 25%, to close at $18.76 per share on January 11, 2021.
A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 22, 2021. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn’t require that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action, you may remain an absent class member.
