It might be a great business move or maybe just jumping on the NFT bandwagon; either way, investors appeared to be pleased.
Within hours of the announcement, the firm's U.S. shares, listed on Nasdaq, soared by more than 80% in price, the most in TradingView's price history dating back to 2019.
The price move is unusual for WKEY, which was still trading below its 52-week high of $18.49 at the time of writing. The company is relatively small, with a market cap of only $244 million, even after Thursday's price surge – so it's not exactly a blue-chip, though it's not a Pink Sheets penny stock either.
