The company's last financial report was submitted to the SEC in 2018.</p><p>Long Blockchain was formerly known as Long Island Ice Tea Corp., but the <a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/long-blockchain-crypto-pivot-is-complete-2019-3-1028012464">company made a pivot to blockchain and changed its name</a> amid the epic rally in cryptocurrencies in 2017. The company was subsequently kicked off the Nasdaq exchange following volatile swings in its share price.</p><p>The SEC said in its order that Long Blockchain's supposed pivot to the crypto technology failed to materialize. Long Blockchain agreed to have its share registration revoked without admitting or denying the SEC's findings, according to the order.</p><p>Long Blockchain's fortunes would have likely been reversed if it managed to successfully pivot to the crypto space, given that bitcoin is more than double its peak 2017 price of nearly $20,000 this year, <a href="https://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/bitcoin-btc-price-ether-xrp-janet-yellen-elon-musk-2021-2-1030112430">even after falling more than 17% this week. </a></p><p><a href="http://markets.businessinsider.com/news/long-blockchain-former-iced-tea-turned-crypto-company-has-its-shares-delisted-by-the-sec-1030114163#comments">Join the conversation about this story »</a></p> <p>NOW WATCH: <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/pikes-peak-hill-climb-colorado-most-dangerous-racetrack-2020-2">Why Pikes Peak is the most dangerous racetrack in America</a></p> Click here to read full news..
