Shares of crypto-related stocks, including Coinbase Global Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) and Riot Blockchain Inc (NASDAQ:RIOT), are trading lower Friday morning amid ongoing weakness in Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) and Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH).

Bitcoin is trading 3.59% lower Friday afternoon at around $29,000.

Coinbase is trading lower by 6.61% at $59.55 per share.

Riot Blockchain is focused on building, supporting and operating blockchain technologies.

Riot Blockchain is trading lower by 5.67% at $5.17 per share.
