Deutsche Boerse will de-list Coinbase Global (COIN.O) shares from its Xetra market and the Frankfurt stock exchange by the end of Friday until further notice.

  • Missing reference data was cited by Deutsche Boerse as the reason for this de-listing, Reuters reported Wednesday.
  • An incorrect legal entity identifier (LEI) code was used when COIN.O began trading on Deutsche Boerse’s platforms.
  • Deutsche Boerse said the de-listing will apply until further notice.
  • The crypto exchange can resume trading on its exchanges only by the issuer applying for an LEI.
  • "We're aware of an administrative error that has made it necessary for Coinbase to resubmit certain documentation to certain European stock exchanges," a Coinbase spokesperson told CoinDesk. "There have been no interruptions to trading of Coinbase stock at this time. We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible."
